I'm shooting an Iron Chef style demonstration at a large festival. It's going to be mid day, but the stage is covered from the top, but open on the sides, blocking maybe three stops of light. My boss wants to put up a big screen visible to the audience, but can't really spring for an LED truck. What are my options? Everything I'm hearing tells me that projectors and plasma won't work. Anybody run up against this type of problem before?
Last time I was at NAB was 2000 and the big Christie projectors were pretty visible in roomlight then. 8 years later they have to have gotten better. Video Systems magazine used to have an annual projector shoot out but I haven't followed them since they quit mailing their mag to Canada. Hopefully someone else will chime in.
