The Grand Ole Opry rises again with Barco

While the worst flood to hit Middle Tennessee in more than 100 years devastated homes, businesses and very nearly the state’s legendary landmark, it couldn’t thwart the spirit of a community who knows all too well that “the show must go on.” Barco projection and LED solutions came to the rescue as part of an overall refurbishment plan orchestrated by Clair Brothers Audio Systems.

While the worst flood to hit Middle Tennessee in more than 100 years devastated homes, businesses and very nearly the state’s legendary landmark, it couldn’t thwart the spirit of a community who knows all too well that “the show must go on.” Barco projection and LED solutions came to the rescue as part of an overall refurbishment plan orchestrated by Clair Brothers Audio Systems.

In May 2010, the Cumberland River crested more than 12 feet above flood stage, overcoming the Grand Ole Opry House stage with 46 inches of water and destroying most of the facility’s production equipment. Over the following five months, Clair Brothers furnished infrastructure wiring and digital audio distribution, installing three Barco FLM-HD20 projectors and a C11 LED display wall in the “Barn.” The LED wall flies in and out in conjunction with the barn and is disassembled as needed to accommodate visiting tours. Reliability was a key selling point for the Barco screens, as well as the ability to easily balance the LED wall and projection with OB trucks for broadcast events.
