Scharff Weisberg Helps New York City Lites Create A Memorable 4th Of July With Legendary Fireboat

FireboatThe historic mingled with the spectacular on the 4th of July when Scharff Weisberg supported New York City Lites, which designed an innovative lighting show on the Hudson River for Duchess County Tourism.

This year marks the quadricentennial (Hudson 400) of the European founding of New York’s Hudson River Valley by Dutch explorer Henry Hudson. When Duchess County Tourism wanted something beyond fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July, it seized on the idea of devising a show around the John J. Harvey, one of the most powerful fireboats ever in service. Built in 1931 and now retired, although it was briefly reinstated on September 11, 2001, the John J. Harvey is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was recently part of the Great River Day Flotilla of vessels sailing upriver on the Hudson from the Statue of Liberty to Albany.

Mark Collins, Director of Projection Technology for Marcus Theatres, explained the decision to go with I-Tech HD’s for this environment was a logical choice. “I know that a lot of the technology in the amplifier was built with the tour sound market in mind.
