The crowd gathered in the streets to watch the glistening ball drop to welcome the new year. This was not Times Square, though — this was Baltimore. In the heart of the city between the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium and Horseshoe Casino, X-Laser projectors generated vivid laser effects to help create the atmosphere for Baltimore’s first New Year’s Eve ball drop (click here for the video!).
X-Laser supplied the laser projectors and custom content to create a 20-by-40 foot outdoor digital laser sign visible throughout the city. The goal was to project laser images visible all the way from Interstates 95 and 395, with each highway more than a mile away from the venue. X-Laser achieved this goal by using one Skywriter HPX unit and one 6-watt Defiant unit.
