Houston’s Shell Freedom Over Texas Independence Day event at The Hobby Center produced by the Houston Mayor’s Office of Special Events showcased live concert performances broadcast on television for Houstonians. Usually an outdoor music festival sized city-wide event, Freedom Over Texas was held indoors due to possible poor weather conditions. LD Systems’ live TV event production support included designing a theater audio system, video content programming, video projection, stage scenic design, and a full stage lighting package. Theater lobby lighting and outdoor architectural lighting was used to illuminate the building with a patriotic theme. Houston’s local TV station ABC13 managed broadcast services and live streaming.
