Today was spent with James Simpson who is our technical consultant and helped plan out how we were going to wire the bridge. There are 14 sections to the bridge, and there are at least five monitors, four eye level, and one big monitor up top!
We literally have 14 TVs we had to buy for the upper monitors. We had 8 already, so I shelled out over $ 1,000 for the remaining 6. All we needed to do was drop the TVs in the top, as it was all set up to hold them thanks to Dean Newbury and Curtis Short, who was our studio manager in LA. Curts had already installed all the old style 4×3 aspect ratio monitors at eye level.
Each computer runs two monitors. A Rasberry Pi (a tiny, tiny computer) runs the upper monitor. The above photo was before we connected everything.
This weekend we have a gaffer and an electrician coming to help set up the lighting and power.
So stay tuned for more this weekend as we get everything set up!
