March 2010. Off to Europe again for the third time so far this year. This time the team load the trucks full of kit to impress the Germans. It was the worldwide debut of our new curved superwidescreen projection technology. With a twist it allows us to project on the round, at any radius, without distortion to the content. Concave or convex is possible on a single axis as shown here or onto x-y axis as shown in the Dynamic Earth projection tests in our other news.
Using our new technology and our rental stock of Christie HD18K projectors we are able to project onto concave or convex surfaces in full HD. Commissioned by one of our clients for a forthcoming event we wanted to test the technology to the limit by projecting onto the “dome” at “Our Dynamic Earth” We treated the “dome” as our canvas and used 2 of our HD18K Christie projectors blended together to create one giant 15m(w) x 7m high image.
January saw the Tapestry team looking out their passports for 2 international events back to back. Our 18 Tonne truck was prepped for both events with the necessary planning for plenary and breakout kits for 2 medium sized international conferences for 2 different clients in 2 different parts of Europe. The truck set-off on 10th January prepped with everything possibly required for both Dublin and Lisbon events. Dublin was 1st and the event ran without a hitch for 4 days of conference including breakouts. There was an awards on the last night with the equipment struck at close and loaded into the truck ready to head off to Lisbon via the Dublin Ferry at 02:00hrs. Read the rest of this entry »
