7thSense partners with the Eden Project at COP26

7thSense, the multi-award-winning media solutions specialist, partnered with the Eden Project to help deliver the Eden Project Pavilion at the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference, otherwise known as COP26, which took place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.

The Eden Project Pavilion, located in the Blue Zone in the Scottish Exhibition Campus, served as a showcase of the action needed to tackle the climate crisis, as well as a way to engage visitors and encourage them to play their part. The venue was 6.5 metres high and 8 metres in diameter, with a design that echoed the Eden Project biomes in Cornwall, but with collapsed panels to reflect the planetary emergency.

The project used a three-output 7thSense Pico Media Server to drive video, through technology provided by Digital Projection, a specialist in LED laser projectors, onto three wall-mounted screens behind the dome. The Pico Media Server also handled the audio for the immersive experience.

Inside, visitors could discover a ‘cabinet of climate curiosities’ as they learned more about the urgent actions that are needed through a collection of objects artworks, media, models and installations, each designed to represent a part of the Eden Project’s philosophical ecology.

The objects on show also represented different Eden affiliated projects, from automata that explore our interconnectedness with the natural world; to AR and planet positive artworks; to immersive media showcasing the invisible worlds around us; or geothermal drill bits and solar energy trees that speak of an end to fossil fuels.

Last month, 7thSense announced that it has appointed Erik Iversen as senior product manager for pixel processing products. Iversen joins 7thSense from Barco, where his most recent position was product manager for image processing. He had been with the company since 2005, working in a variety of customer-facing roles.
