NEP Screenworks was honored to be one of the screen providers for President Obama's momentous and historic second inauguration. We are extremely disappointed that during much of the ceremony, one of our screens was un-viewable. Unfortunately, the failure was the result of a bad microwave signal delivering the video feed to our screen, causing the break-up and drop of the video that many in attendance experienced. The microwave signal was supplied by an outside provider for our partner, C3 Presents, and therefore the problem was beyond our control.
At NEP, we take every job seriously and we stand by our reputation for providing the industry’s highest-quality live event production capabilities. Like everyone in attendance, we were dismayed that the inauguration viewing experience was not optimal, but we are confident that C3 and its microwave signal provider will be able to resolve the cause and prevent a similar failure at upcoming events.
