Tony Bongiovi and the big screens at concerts

I have a question regarding the big screens that we see at the concerts and what gets shown. Is it Tony who does all the footage that is shown on the screens? I mean from what is shown during Bad Medicine and for Wanted Dead or Alive, the sun setting? Is that all Tony's work?

Another thing that I have been wondering, when they scan the audience and shows signs and it goes up on screen, is that all Tony? At the Toronto Valentine Show, Jon asks Tony to scan the audience for couples and have them kiss and then they all appeared on the screens and so hearing and seeing that has me wondering does he do everything? At the Hard Rock Calling, I saw the sign F&*K The Curfew and wondered is it Tony who sees all this and then puts it on screen. For the concert on Richie's birthday, all the signs saying Happy Birthday Richie were shown on screen. Is that all him?

Tony has a control panel that he see what all the camera's see and he chooses the shots that go on the screen. Just like in a live tv show, i'm sure you probably have seen a control room from live awards show or something.

Thank you!! Now I understand how it's done. I knew that he was in charge but didn't know if he was the one who picks what goes on screen.
