Dataton’s Watchout multi-image display and presentation software package is star performer at the new Broadway musical, Bare, alongside a customized iPhone app. Entertainment technology provider WorldStage has provided a customized iPhone software app for the new Broadway musical, Bare. WorldStage also provided three videomapped Christie WX10K 10K projectors and integrated Dataton Watchout multi-image display and presentation software package featuring display computer, production computers and a Dynamic Image Server that supports live video streaming. Watchout and the servers to run it were supplied to WorldStage by Show Sage, Dataton Premium Partner for North America. "We selected WATCHOUT because it could be deployed for the visual projections as well as integrated with an iPhone app," says WorldStage account executive Lars Pedersen. In explaining how the app works, projection designer William Cusick says: "One character is asked by another to take his picture with his iPhone. So he aims the phone and slowly the live camera feed from the phone comes up on the concrete wall behind them. Then the character snaps the picture, and we see the frozen video image. That same picture is shown two more times in the show: as a saved screen capture and in a memorial scene after the character dies. So there's a through-line with the image." Bare is a contemporary rock musical playing at New World Stages in the heart of the Manhattan theatre district, New York City and will make its debut in Switzerland in 2013. It is an emotionally charged tale of a group of teens coming to grips with issues of identity, sexuality and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school. It was first staged in Los Angeles over a decade ago and has had over 100 productions worldwide. Photography by Donyale Werle, courtesy of Bare The Musical
