PIXERA Lets Pixels Party at Caesars Palace
The Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is famous for offering its customers world class entertainment and unforgettable moments. Hosting one of the largest New Year’s Eve parties in the whole of Las Vegas is therefore anything but a standard affair, the goal being to creatively outdo last year’s party each time anew.
Julie Palmisano and Keith Floyd have been the creative masterminds of the technical team and have led the charge for many years on the complex production.
This year, BC Video Services had the opportunity to support them in designing and executing the highly anticipated 2023 Caesars Entertainment New Years Eve party.
Brian Crow was invited to the team in order to help them bring their latest creative vision to life, by adding his extensive knowledge and experience of media server technology to the mix. The collaboration led to the PIXERA system becoming the obvious choice for driving the biggest LED display the prestigious event had ever seen.
In addition to multiple PIXERA server licences, the final setup also involved 6x Barco E2 presentation systems and 15x Novastar MCTRL4K LED processors, which were used in conjunction with Unilumin LED displays.
“I love PIXERA for its reliability, adaptability and the intuitiveness of the GUI. It allows me to make changes quickly and visualise what the final product will look like,” explains Crow. “The ability to render the workspace really helps get the client excited too, so they can see their vision before we get to the show site. These were all key factors in bringing PIXERA to the table this year. All in all we were driving close to 75 million pixels for the NYE party at Caesars Palace and created some audio-visual magic for the guests, who definitely enjoyed themselves.”
The synched video content was played out across a total of 15 outputs, with different resolutions seamlessly creating a highly impressive and atmospheric LED panorama.
“The party was a huge success and I can’t wait for PIXERA 2.0 to be released later this year in order to be able to unleash even more creative power!” concludes Crow.
