Check out this amazing pregame video projection from the Cavaliers

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last week the Cleveland Cavaliers retired the number of Zydrunas Ilgauskas, their longtime center. As part of the special celebration, they used a video projection company — which has previously made NBA pregame projections — that produced a mind-bending video projection to start the game. According to Quince Imaging, this was created through the use of a lot of things that I don’t understand…

Using a combination of 3D mapping techniques and video content produced by the Cavs own QTV team and Think Media, Quince transformed the court surface and surrounding screens into an immersive video environment.

Utilizing the latest revision of Pandoras Box version 5.5 and the newly released version of Warper, video content was aligned to the graphic design elements on the Cavs basketball court.

The system was comprised of 16 HD projectors, creating a pixel space of 3600×1878.

I just wonder if I can borrow this to hook up to my PS3?

How Do You Spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas?

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — How do you spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas? OK, fine, I just spelled it for you, but I did without looking it up! I swear! See, part of writing about the NBA and sports is that before long you learn how to spell names that some might construe as challenging? So Ilgauskas? Got it. Krzyzewski? No sweat. Antetokuonmpo? Oh yeah. Then again, ask me to do long division and I’m useless.

Anyway, the Cavs are retiring Big Z’s number on March 8, so a wisecracking version of their mascot Moondog took to the streets of Cleveland to see if people could spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
