So it's not just the stage design that is a first for the Taipei Arena, even the displays will be the biggest and fullest in the history of the Taipei Arena! The displays will be different from what the Taipei Arena has used in the past, the most that has been used is 1000 strips of LED, for Jay Chou's first time in the Taipei Arena he will make use of over 2000 strips of LED, the special thing is that in the action effects there will be a "360 floating solid render" and Mapping technique (the newest visual effect techniques), the "360 floating solid render" can simply be described as a solid rendering effect produced by projections from 4 sides and in 8 directions into the air! All the fans will not just see one dimension of the image, they can see 360 degrees of the image! It is something only audiences who go there themselves can experience, it will give your senses a new experience.

Jay Chou likes to have full control over music and the visuals, he has plenty of ideas for his large scale concert, besides preparing his new album, at the same time he is holding meetings everyday with workers about the content of the concert, Jay Chou: "At the Sprite press conference I've already played around with 4D, this time I'm going to play with something special, like the "360 floating solid render", is one such special visual effect.
