Highlighting some of the very best real-world examples from trusted ecosystem of expert partners

Visualization experts, Barco and projectiondesign® will be showcasing the breadth of their combined projection product offering at the European Attractions Expo 2013 (EAS 2013) through the demonstration of real-world examples.

Maria Dahl Aagaard, Product Marketing Manager

Maria Dahl Aagaard, product marketing manager at projectiondesign says: “Supplying some of the most prestigious and innovative theme park and visitor attractions operating today, the combined Barco and projectiondesign product lines are designed for high-performance imaging, outstanding colour reproduction, long-term use, reliability and rapid return on investment for the operator as well as an engaging experience for the visitor.

“Working at EAS 2013 and highlighting some of our best in class ecosystem of trusted technology partners, such as Holovis and Reactable, our products will demonstrate how they are part of transformational experiences in a range of demanding and cost effective applications.”

Next generation Holovis MotionDome™ launched at EAS

Holovis MotionDome™ is an immersive and interactive platform ideal for creating gaming or dark ride transformative experiences in 2D or 3D. The solution is scalable from small to large full dome theatres, completed with ride motion technology.

Four F35 AS3D active stereoscopic 3D DLP™ projectors are seamlessly edge blended on the Holovis MotionDome™ curved screen display, positioned above the participant’s eye line to create the completely immersive experience.

The MotionDome™ solution combines unrivalled attraction design with visual performance and control. Four F35 AS3D active stereoscopic 3D DLP™ projectors are seamlessly edge blended on the Holovis MotionDome™ curved screen display, positioned above the participant’s eye line to create the completely immersive experience, integrated with Holovis motion seat technology and interactive gaming devices. This is all driven by In-Mo® a proprietary Holovis technology that integrates real-time interactive game technology into the dome of choice.

A first of its kind in Dome Theatre attractions, Stuart Hetherington, CEO at Holovis says: “We are delighted to be bringing our extensive innovation-led expertise in high-end immersive and interactive experience design to EAS with our MotionDome™ technology. We are already working with a range of first to market clients including FECs, Property Asset Developers and major Theme Park operators on deploying these high impact, cost effective visitor attractions.

“Complementing our MotionDome™ technology will be our use of the stunning Barco OL-521 full-resolution stereoscopic 3D display wall. A range of Barco and projectiondesign® products will be displayed in formations that demonstrate how we have integrated these into our extensive range of turn-key solutions that transform the sensory experience, including videowall technology for visual system storyboarding.”

Barco’s OL-521 rear-projection video wall display will be shown for the first time at EAS 2013. The system uses a modular design ensuring that video cubes can be stacked to practically any size or position. Images are created using reliable LED illumination that brings several operational benefits to the visitor attractions and the leisure space including a small footprint, front-panel control and access, failsafe and cool operation, wide viewing angle and reliable DLP™ imaging technology. Using LED illumination means that the visual system operates up to 80,000 hours life-time in economy mode and has no moving parts. Calibration is achieved using Barco’s proprietary Sense6 calibration software.

The Reactable Experience ensures that EAS visitors will see, touch and hear sound!

Aimed at captivating, engaging and enthralling EAS visitors, on the Barco and projectiondesign stand will be live video and music performances using interactive table technology from Reactable. projectiondesign F22 projectors are installed inside the table with live HD camera feeds of video jockeys making music being displayed on the big screen using F32 projectors.

“Reactable is an electronic musical instrument with a simple and intuitive design. Visitors to EAS will be able to experiment and create sound, change its structure and control its parameters in a direct and unique way,” says Gunter Geiger, CEO at Reactable. “Through using projection as its visual interface, the musician is able to connect with his music creating a richer experience for himself and his audience by hearing, seeing and touching the sound.”

University of Wisconsin’s Schofield Auditorium Gets Next Gen IC Live

 

Univ WI Eau Claire 2

Eau Claire, WI... UW-Eau Claire’s oldest building, the stately brick façade of Schofield Hall dates back to the beginnings of this storied campus in 1916. In addition to the University’s main administration offices, the building is home to the Schofield Auditorium, a 600-seat multi-purpose venue that was recently treated to a complete renovation, from new seating and décor to modern, high-performance audio and video systems. 

“The room is primarily used for lectures, guest speakers and small group performances, and our primary focus was on achieving superior intelligibility,” explains Nancy Carlson of Audio Architects in Chippewa Falls. “But there are also a number of smaller musical groups and other performances in there, and we wanted to design a system that would be flexible enough to adapt to a wide range of programs and performances.”

The system includes one of the first installations of the new generation of Iconyx IC Live digitally steered column arrays. As Carlson explains, the hall’s new architectural design enabled the two ICL-FR-TRIP columns to be completely concealed.

“They wanted a classic look, much like when the auditorium was built in 1916, and they didn’t necessarily want to see the speakers,” Carlson says. “They had designed some decorative columns on either side of the proscenium, which provided us with a perfect location for the Iconyx columns.” Four DR18-2R dual 18-inch powered subwoofers are also concealed in cavities in the front wall. “We had to have a general contractor reinforce the platforms, but we were able to hang a sound-transparent panel in front of them, making them equally unseen,” Carlson adds.

The audio system also includes a large-format Yamaha M7CL 48-channel digital console at Front of House. “We provided inputs at several different points in the room, and on stage, all wired back to the FOH console,” says Carlson. A Biamp AudiaFLEX CM unit handles system DSP.

Carlson says the IC Live’s steered beam technology provided an ideal solution for one of the room’s biggest challenges.”We needed to find a way to provide sound to the under-balcony seating, which was only about seven feet from floor to ceiling, while also providing even coverage to the upper balcony area. The Iconyx enabled us to direct individual sound beams both above and below the balcony, giving us consistent and even coverage to every seat in the house, without the need for under-balcony fills.”
