Fireworks Overview and Special Effects:
The opening display will be divided into three three main portions, each shot by one of three display companies that were chosen through a competition and through their ability to positively influence the Olympic Fireworks Committee.
One portion of the display fired by one of the three companies will use the PyroDigital Firing system developed and sold by our close friend Ken Nixon. This portion will last about 20 minutes and feature approximately 1,000 shells, 2,500 cakes and several thousand single shot candles.
One special effect reported is the Olympic Rings in a single 12" shell. It is also reported that this effect will be produced from several smaller shells shot from a cake.
One Dominator Affiliate Factory is producing the following effects:
8 seconds flash, 20 meters sky waterfall, ,300 meters meteor, and 6 meter effect handle fountain.
