Blue Screen of Death Strikes Bird's Nest During Opening Ceremonies Torch
Lighting

Well, this is just perfect. At the exact moment Li Ning was rounding the
lip of the Bird's Nest during the amazing torch-lighting climax, someone
snapped this photo of our good friend the BSOD nestled among the Nest's
steel twigs. Perhaps an Opening Ceremonies IT dude spit out his coffee
on the machines in the server room when Li took to the sky? Another
question is what a projection screen is doing inside the Nest at that
location, but I think the better question is what wasn't going on inside
the Nest's roof—did you see that thing during the ceremonies? Lights!
Fireworks! LED screens! Everything! Anyway, if only one image of this
perfectness existed we'd be skeptical, but thankfully, someone has
grabbed more from a different angle that pretty much seal the deal.

UPDATE: And it's been confirmed on the NBC broadcast by commenter cirby
on his DVR.

@warxsnake: I think it was probably a projection of the field and
the simulcast, as people in those seats probably couldn't see the best
in terms of individual people.

Like those tvs they have at stadiums broadcasting the games
parallel to the game going on.

Why would there be a projector facing at that strange angle? This

landscape, not portrait. Why is it rotated 90 degrees?

Almost all of the media servers for the digital lighting (read:

directX. My guess is one of them gave out. I can't see live video being
projected there.

Re: Location - if you noticed that many of the projected images
weren't in "fixed" locations, it leads me to believe they all had
automated (or, gasp, manual) positioning systems and someone decided
that the ceiling was a better place for the BSOD than the middle of the
performance.

Just a thought?

@warxsnake: if you look at the images you can see that it appears
to be on the underside or back of the lip that goes around the stadium,
which means it wouldn't have been picked up when the camera was
following the torch lighter. as you can see in the first picture, the
photographer is shooting from beheath the guy, so the image is on the
underside of the roof.

For the sake of the Chinese crews running the performance I hope
this is a fake. Some of the Chinese governments reputation for intensity
towards failure is made-up, but having lived in China for several years
I can tell you that the Olympics are absolutely the biggest priority in
the country. If this was a computer mess-up there is no question in my
mind the entire team that handled it was fired and probably reassigned
to the most humiliating job that could be found. No joke.

I do freelance AV stuff and if this *is* real, it was only up
there for a split second. Every show computer has a backup and for
something like the Olympics I wouldn't be surprised if each show
computer had an operator. The operator's job in a situation like this is
to hit the button to switch to the backup, then reboot and get the show
computer up and running.

show computer = computer running the powerpoint/video/whatever

I was there, almost at the same spot underneath from where the
picture was allegedly taken, staring up the torch holders ass the whole
time, and i didnt see any BSOD.
So i call fakes, plus the fact that there are many pictures
resembling this one on the net, i guess someone grabbed it modified and
posted, since it took a while thats why it wasnt up the very next hour

Guys, although it looks like a legit picture, let's get some
facts before making any assumptions.

The "lights and video" part of the show, was controlled by a huge
networked system with redundancy all the way. They had 3 full-size
lighting consoles, with another 3 as backup. They also utilized 110
media servers -connected to some Christie Roadster projectors- with
redundant equipment and failover measures. Sure, technology tends to
fail, and in the most unexpected and unfortunate conditions, and sure,
Windows fails. But if it really failed, it must lasted just a few
seconds, until an emergency system took over.

I'd say it's real, but fake. Probably some Apple or *Nix fanboi
sitting below that section with a pico projector.

(j/k) But it does point out how much fun the near future will be.
Imagine a substantial amount of projectors embedded in PMP's and phones.
And now your stuck in a darkened auditorium watching and listening to
CEO's dreck on the stage. And across the ceiling of where you're
sitting, dozens of projected screens of people playing games, someone
photochopping an image of the CEO, someone showing off their pr0n
collection. Mass anarchy.

If its fake, someone took a lot of time to do the shadows of the
rigging that the projection is going over. I say real, you cant expect
that much technology to all run 100%%, even if it was a $300 million
production.

But you can't fake the text's distortion very accurately as it's
projected on the black rigging.

The only thing that was truly sketchy was the mismatched blurs
from either shaky picture taking, focus, or someone trying to fake a
focus shot.

CONFIRMED: I found it on my HD DVR recording of the Opening
Ceremonies. Angle and color are correct. It's a blue-white smudge on the
ceiling at about 4 hours and 24 minutes into the NBC broadcast version.
Right after the torch lighting, they have a shot with some women in red
dresses, holding flags. It's right above the white flag.

If you saw the ceremonies live and didn't notice it, it's because
some tech switched to the backup in less than a second.

@Bodypainter: Uh, I think the main point of the article is that
it's funny for an error message to show up in an Olympic opening
ceremony, especially one so masterfully done. No attacks on Microsoft
intended, it just happens to be a Windows BSOD (second pic, right near
the top in the first line of text).

I can guarantee that this is real - and it's there for a whole
lot longer than a 'split second'. But if this is the only thing to go
wrong - then so be it - better than the flame getting stuck like at
Sydney - and so what if the copy of Windows was illegit? What's
Microsoft going to do about it?

You'd think they made HD DVR's that did screen shots by now.

its legit.. for all of you saying its fake because of the
angles.. ever heard of keystone??
its alters the projection to make it appear as though the image
is being projected from front on when it could be projected from an
angle as much as 45 degrees...
as far as it being an english version of windows.. do you really
think the chinese put that show on all by themselves?? i mean it would
have been mostly done by them but alot of that lighting and production
gear would have been sub-hired from other countries.. even though the
lighting designer (who is responsible for the synchonisation of lighting
and video) and 99%% of the workers were chinese, a company called
Advanced Communtication equipment was responsible for the technical
realisation and automated controll of the show.. doesnt sound very
chinese does it??
conclusion??
windows crashed! (im a mac person so this makes my day)haha and
this isnt fake in my books.. someone prove me wrong and i will happily
stand corrected..
