Barco, the technology company focusing on innovative visualization solutions for different applications, has released a new free eBook on 3D projection mapping.
Barco is proud to announce the launch of a new eBook on projection mappings called “Challenges when dealing with millions of pixels.” This takes a look at the history of this powerful projection technique and also highlights the technological requirements of a mapping project, exploring the different stages that lead up to the ultimate visual feast.
From idea to stage
Projection mapping is a video projection technique that creates the optical illusion of 3D effects on an object or building. The artistic play with light transforms virtually any surface into an immersive canvas that captivates large audiences. It is the key to strong storytelling, innovative marketing and just all-round entertainment. However, it does require skills and deliberate planning to create a memorable experience.
The eBook explains how projection mapping projects come about, from idea to stage, and what a typical mapping set-up looks like. Because only when each part of the chain supports the other will it lift the projection mapping to the next level.
Challenges when dealing with millions of pixels
How can you find the right technology to do justice to your specifically-designed content? The eBook also dives deeper into the projection requirements for 3D mapping, with details and insights on brightness levels, resolution, colour gamut and processing.
Earlier this month, Barco announced the latest achievement created by its partnership with Culturespaces, the French artainment venture. This new immersive exhibition, Bassins de Lumières, opened in Bordeaux, France, on 10 June 2020.
Inside this former WWII submarine base iconic paintings, which have been recreated by digital artists, are now being brought to life by more than 100 Barco projectors.
