Full MEDIALON Control at DKM Forum in Norway

DKM Forum, a Norwegian exhibition and marketing center, has selected Medialon to control its entire newly-built 4D cinema, its showroom and an exhibition inside the building.

The 4D Cinema

DKM Forum - 4D CinemaDKM Forum features a unique 4D Cinema combining 3D Films and 4D Effects. While watching a 3D Film, spectators can experience various 4D effects sensations synchronized with the movie story: moving seats, wind blow, water and more.

The 3D Film and the 4D Effects are synchronized by a Medialon Manager Pro license.

“We have made the 4D seats ourselves, with servomotors (each seat is a simulator) and water, air, strobes, “butt shakers? (subwoofer attached to the seats and transmitting vibrations to the spectator’s body and ears), leg tickles and stars.?, says Halvor Bekkevold, DKM Forum CEO. “We have made our own 3D (4D) Film Begynnelsen with two HD cameras and an Apple solution of two uncompressed digital HD SDI streams.? adds Bekkevold.

Medialon controls a Stumpfl Wings Platinum, an advanced multidisplay production and presentation system, which is used to playback HD on two Panasonic Digital HD projectors with polaroid stereoscopic technology. Medialon Manager also controls and synchronizes lighting via Artnet; fifteen chairs with three servomotors and a Galil motion controller through TCP/IP, used to activate the specific motion profile for each film.

DKM Forum - 4D CinemaSound is displayed in the cinema by two BSS Soundweb London audio boards, both controlled by Medialon.

“Using Medialon Manager allows easy updates, synchronization and changes of all the 4D effects. Thanks to the timeline, Medialon Manager offers simple change of the 4D special effects and adapts the special effects so they can match with the movie?, says Ben Brodie, DKM Programmer.

A Medialon Manager Panel has been designed and is used for many functions, such as changing, starting and stoping a show; testing 4D effects, etc.

“When we found Medialon Manager, it was like all the pieces in the puzzle fitted?, declares Ben Brodie. “With the tremendous amounts of MxMs available, it allowed us to easily select and control other A/V products from different AV suppliers. Then of course the synchronization and timeline programming offered by Medialon Manager is fundamental when one is building a 4D cinema?, adds Ben Brodie. “Without Medialon Manager it would have been very hard and impossible for us to do this 4D cinema project but we also have had a very professional support from Medialon during the programming phase?, concludes Ben Brodie.

The Showroom

DKM Forum - Showroom Medialon Manager also manages DKM Forum’s showroom and controls via TCP/IP six Dataton Watchout, played back by five Epson full HD projectors and a full HD-screen, all working together. Images are displayed on a 2 meter high by 5 meter wide and 90 degree curved screen.

For the sound, one Soundweb London Blue has been integrated and is also managed by Medialon Manager. Thanks to Medialon Manager free Panel software, administrators can easily start/stop the projection, and change show by a simple touch of a button.

The Exhibition Center

The DKM Forum is a permanent exhibition and marketing center for the Multimedia Productions from Brunstad Christian Church. It is located on Brunstad Conference Center. Audio, video and sound, as well as twenty one Dataton Watchout licenses which are displaying images and movies, are entirely controlled by Medialon Manager.
