    Are you talking about the two green projectors on each side of the stage that have the beams moving towards the center?

    They've got the polarity on the X galvo reversed for one of the projectors, and they're sending the same signal to both. The pattern is just a set of beams (call it 10 beams) in a line that are moving to the left... It's probably a looping animation of less than 10 total frames. (All you need to do is draw enough frames so that each beam moves far enough left to almost line up with where the next one started at. Then loop the frames and you'll have a smooth animation of beams moving left.)

    When you display it, the projector with the normal polarity goes on the left side of the stage (as you are facing it from the audience) so that from the audience's perspective, the beams will be moving towards the center of the stage. Now you put the other projector (with the X polarity wired opposite) on the right side of the stage. That projector's beams will now ALSO be moving towards the center of the stage (since the polarity of the X signal is reversed) and you'll get the beam-crossing effect in the middle of the audience, just like you saw in the video.

    Make sense?

    Probably a real lame question, but what is DNB?
