AMERICAN IDOL ON ABC, SEASON 1
a three PM g3 dyvi system was used to drive the screens on The ABC reboot of this Fremantle classic. Graphics from CoolLux Pandora Servers were routed through the DYVI at Full HD (1080 p 59.94 fps) where live IMAG layers were integrated to create the most stunning LED set on television. our system controlled The massive upstage wall, the stage floor and runway, and the band boxes. Additional on set monitor switching and timekeeping display functions were provided by sun screens
AMERICAN IDOL ON ABC, SEASON 2
This season all of the screens geometry was performed inside the DYVI in order to bypass the Image Pro scan converters and claw back 2 frames of latency. In addition, the 3rd PM was located in engineering, with PM's 1&2 located next to the screens processors. This had the added benefit of using the DYVI's 40GB backbone to transport 1080p outputs of the cameras to the rest of the switcher. This resulted in sharper graphics, sharper IMAG and lower latencies.
