RNC on the big screen

One thing that intrigued me about the Republican National Convention last night was the giant video screen that makes up the backdrop of the main stage. As Fred Thompson spoke about presumptive Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, images of Sen. McCain showed behind him, giving the actor and former senator's speech a theatrical flair. 

It'll be interesting to see how they use this screen the next two nights and if they have other ideas for enhancing speeches with photos and video imagery. I also wonder if they offer delegates those rippling flag stripes we usually see on the jumbo monitor as a screen saver.
