Barco and XL Video have delivered world's first transformable 360° LED screen for U2. With its 360° shape, the LED screen surrounds the band while performing and can change shape in all directions during the concert. The stage and show were created by long-time U2 designers Willie Williams and Mark Fisher. With the help of Chuck Hoberman and Barco, their vision of a 360° moving video screen was turned into reality. For the 360° experience, Barco provided more than 500,000 transformable LED pixels (FLX-24) which are integrated into a transformable structure designed by Barco's Innovative Designs, based on a Hoberman invention. The resulting giant LED screen has a 24 by 16 meter diameter and changes shape in all directions, making U2 the first band ever to go on a tour with a transformable LED screen. In addition to the giant LED screen, Barco integrated a total of 1,200 FLX-60 pixel modules surrounding the edges of both the A and B stages and the bridges. The stage LEDs provide an extra dimension to the graphic show projected on the screen.
