Attention NFL lawyers: Isn’t “Super Bowl” a copyrighted term that the league aggressively defends to prevent other sporting events and related companies from benefiting from the goodwill associated with that event?

Opening ceremonies at October's All China Games Maybe that term doesn’t apply to China or to Barco, which says it teamed with “Creative Technology and Color Lighting for [a] dazzling 'Super Bowl' visual display at the 11th National Games of the People's Republic of China” back in October.

The event, also known as the “All China Games,” took place in October (Dec. 4) at Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium in Shandong's capital city of Jinan.

According to Barco, the event “was highlighted by a spectacular ‘Super Bowl’ video display show in the center of the stadium that provided a magical experience for those in attendance.”

A video clip of the ceremonies is here. Check it out; it really is spectacular.

The Barco lineup, used throughout the games, included eight DML-1200 luminaires and 45 XLM HD30 projectors, which Barco touts as the brightest projector available on the market today. With a native wide-screen aspect ratio, native 2048x1080 resolution and light output of 30,000 center lumen, the XLM HD30 projector is ideally suited to ultra wide-screen and HD projections.

The DML-1200 is the first moving digital luminaire that can truly be used as both a super bright, moving light source and a high quality video projector.

In light mode, the DML-1200 produces a perfectly circular light beam with a light output equivalent to that of a 1200W hard edged moving light—12,000 field lumens and the brightest digital light on the market today.

In video mode, the DML-1200 features a fully sealed DLP engine, which delivers full color DLP quality video with SXGA+ (1400x1050) resolution. With a light output of 10,000 center lumens, the DML-1200 is the brightest digital light on the market today, according to Barco.

The All China Games usually occur every four years, with the next scheduled for 2013.
