IS190: TRENDS IN DISPLAY AND LIGHT TECHNOLOGY AT ATTRACTIONS

THURS 13 JUNE 2019, 12.30-1.30pm, W311H

Increasingly sophisticated projection and display technologies are enabling a whole new breed of spectacular multimedia shows and attractions. Nighttime spectaculars have been a continuing trend at visitor attractions, increasing dwell time and revenue and often featuring projection mapping, drones and lasers. Ultra-sharp images across vast surfaces are creating groundbreaking exhibits and even new forms of immersive art experiences. With projectors becoming increasingly powerful, where can the technology and the attractions it creates go next?

Session content

With projectors becoming ever more powerful, where is display technology heading next? Our speakers will look at how technology is evolving to create the visions of the future.

Bart Kresa, founder of BARTKRESA studio, is a Master Projection Designer who has worked with clients including Universal Studios, Disney, ABC, HBO, Fox, General Motors, Warner Bros, The Grammy Awards, Playboy, Bulgari, and T-Mobile. He will be talking about the art of projection now and in the future.

Bryan Boehme, Executive Director, Global Entertainment at Christie Digital Systems will discuss The evolution of projection – advances in colour space. What comes to mind when we think about projection and attractions? Is it the large-scale projection mapping installations or the immersive visuals of 3D dark rides? To make any projection installation memorable, consider the role of colour. From the blackest blacks in dark rides, to the vibrant reds and blues in outdoor projection displays, recreating colour as close to what the human eye can see creates visuals that pop. Learn about advances in colour space and the technology that makes it possible. What makes a multi-projector installation look as good on day 300 as it does on day one? A set of tools for warping, blending and aligning the image without downtime. What are the current advances in projection alignment and what does the future hold for tools that enable complex multi-projection installations?

Chris Axford, International Sales & Marketing Director at Digital Projection, will give an overview of the evolution of projection technology and ask “why do we still need projectors”? He will then look at two future concepts for projection technology that could have particularly interesting applications for attractions.
