NY Pier 57 Main Theater
This is the main theater at Google's amazing Pier 57. I led a collection of amazing teams, vendors and contractors to deliver this once in a career project. Can you believe that the 32' Unilumin LED screen you see here drops through a slot in the floor in under a minute?

Google's MP7 Event Center
This is the main screen at MP7. Google's first stand alone event center. This is the first deployment of a Sony CLED projection screen in the US. It was the largest in the country for many years. Eventually we lost that title regained it at the Bayview build then lost it again :(
Reception area at MP7.
This amazing two story LED screen can be seen for several blocks as you approach the building.

Google X Videowall
I had the honor of working with the display scientists at Google X on this one of a kind custom built videowall. It was a prototype for a product that was never developed further. Still a ton of fun though.
Google X Videowall
This shows the displays being added to the frame. There were a series of motors that automatically physically aligned the screens. Amazing working with that team.
Smaller control room in Pier 57
I was second Engineer on U2's ZooTV tour way way back in the day. Worked with the most professional crew and hardest working team in show business. We raised the bar on touring video in 1991.
US version of ZooTV
This is the US screen layout of ZooTV. 19 Tripled up GE light valve projectors. The projection team got very little sleep on that tour. Bob Loney projector boot camp made that show happen.
European version of ZooTV.
This was the European screen layout over 170 video wall cubes, remember 1991, we are talking Zenith television engines built into custom steel enclosures.
we needed cubes because many of the shows started before sunset.
