YC3 Lighting Design Deploys Avolites Server Technology for Romeo Santos History-Making Concert at MetLife Stadium Posted: 05/11/2019
YC3 Lighting Design Deploys Avolites Server Technology for Romeo Santos and rsquo; History-Making Concert at MetLife Stadium

It was an historic evening for Romeo Santos, one of Latin music’s most successful icons. On September 21, he headlined a night at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, which became the single highest-grossing concert in the stadium's history, a record previously held by U2.

Named for his latest LP, Utopia, the concert, which spanned 45 songs over four hours and included a guest appearance by rapper Cardi B, was as much a visual tour de force as a musical one, with 22 LED screens covering literally almost every square foot of the stage, including the ceiling. It was an undertaking that required the most robust video servers in the world, and video production designer YC3 Lighting Design turned to Avolites Ai servers to make the night magical.

YC3, which was in charge of the overall stage and production design, fashioned the system around eight Avolites Ai servers—two Q3, two R8, one R4, and three custom servers using Avolites-compatible hardware and Miami software licenses—plus an Avolites Tiger Touch II lighting control console.

“It was the biggest show in the history of Hispanic music!” shares YC3 Lighting Design Owner Yamil Charif of the estimated 85,000 fans who were there. “It was also the highest-grossing concert at the MetLife Stadium, even bigger than U2. It had to be perfect.”

And it was, though not without its challenges. Santos, known as “King of Bachata,” the strain of Latin music from his native Dominican Republic, rarely follows a script, and this show was no exception. “He likes to improvise, to make it up as he goes along,” says Charif. “There was no way we could do this with a single file and just program a server and hit a macro; this show required a lot of flexibility, which came from using many servers, so we could adjust the video images to follow what he was doing as he was feeding off of the crowd.”

OConnor O-Grips Help Koretz Get Non-Traditional Shots for Lincoln Motor Cars Short
Cinematographer Eric Koretz and Director Elliot Rausch recently undertook an unusual assignment. By creating a Lincoln Motor Cars short titled Get Back, they became one of the four teams to capture the first content officially sponsored by Vimeo. With a short shooting schedule and non-actor subjects, Koretz chose to film with the RED Epic, Zeiss Super speed lenses and support it with an Easyrig equipped with O-Grips by OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
