    As part of Universal Studios Hollywood's ambitious expansion plan, Universal CityWalk  recently launched its new high-tech performance "5 Towers" concert plaza. There was a party atmosphere for the inauguration, as it came at the start of Universal's summer series of free weekend outdoor concerts.  Cee Lo Green (The Voice) was the first performer to rock the center stage, and he had the honor of unveling the state-of-the-art concert set up. The interactive "5 Towers" area lets everyone see all the action going on, with a new giant screen over the stage, showing off the performers in great detail.
   For his performance, Green utilized the wild lighting features that electrified the crowd of thousands. Everyone was bathed in a colorful shower of lights. Lights and graphics are one of the coolest features of the new 31-foot-by-24-foot stage.
   In addition to the sophisticated visuals, the acoustic elements are also praise-worthy. It features custom-built acoustical panels that complement the venue's audio system. It controls the distribution of sound and targets sound waves directly into the arena while minimizing performance echo in surrounding areas.
   High-definition cameras have been positioned within the venue to further elevate the dynamic environment by capturing video of the audience and guests, and broadcasting them on the 26-foot-by14-foot high definition LED display monitor centrally mounted above the concert stage.
   The elaborate concert centerpiece is equipped with thousands of LED fixtures, motion capture sensory, five soaring 42-foot light tower sculptures, a massive video monitor and cutting-edge audio system-- all to enhance great performances. The NBC Universal location is often used by Jay Leno for The Tonight Show filming segments, as well as other local shoots.
