WATCHOUT brings Renault Megane III to life

Omagica supplies Dataton WATCHOUT for car launches

Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-image display and presentation software was provided by Dataton Premium Partner, Omagica to Bolivia-based projection specialists Vinilo Lab for use in Bogota and Medellin city launches of the new Renault Mégane III family car.

Talking about this exciting project, Eduardo Ortega, Media Director, Vinilo Lab explains, “Our client wanted the look and feel of an action-packed and high drama film. To create the drama, we put WATCHOUT version 5.2 through its paces and took full advantage of the new corner pinning feature which allowed us to manipulate the corners of the desired projected image around curved surfaces such as the cars’ wheels. Here an extra projection layer was added to make the motion effect even more realistic and fast-paced. As the car was suspended and lowered into the stage area during the show, the result was perfectly synchronised.”

The event was attended by a packed audience of brand management, television and media as well as regional Renault dealers.

Adela Kriland, owner of Omagica adds, “Omagica are a trusted partner of Dataton and have worked with them for many years on projects with partners such as Vinilo Lab who are roadtesting the new features WATCHOUT on projects as exciting as the Renault Megane launch. Our technical support staff were on hand to offer valuable local advice during the setup of this project.”

“Dataton is no stranger to vehicle launches,” says Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director at Dataton. “Having a system that is reliable, easy to use and as robust as WATCHOUT is testament to its succcess. We look forward to seeing more installations as impressive as the Renault Megane launch using new and enhanced features of WATCHOUT in the future.”

Aker Solutions uses projectiondesign for iPort simulation centre


Industry-leading oil and gas industry visualization benefits from 3D projection

Aker Solutions’ iPort in Stavanger, Norway, is an integrated operations centre for the offshore industry. It offers 3D simulators and other visualisation technology for drilling, topside, subsea and down-hole operations, with five main areas offering different simulator setups – each one using projectors from Norway’s projectiondesign.

Employing over 18,000 people worldwide, Aker Solutions is a leading global services company that provides engineering services, technologies, products and field-life solutions for the oil and gas industry.

“The iPort simulators show virtual images of real offshore constructions and environments,” explains Marita Mæland, Sales and Marketing Co-Ordinator for the iPort. “Each offshore installation is meticulously copied and re-created as a virtual asset in a simulated environment. We then use these ‘virtual versions’ of real installations for testing, design and staff training purposes, to optimise operational processes and procedures, and to fine-tune equipment performance and drilling sequences.”

“The beauty of the iPort simulators is that all this development work takes place ‘off the critical line’ – in other words, the work is done without affecting the day-to-day operation of the real-world installations.

“Having access to complex information in the form of 3D simulated images simplifies project planning and execution, clarifies communications and reduces risk and cost for our customers. “

The result of years of detailed programming by Aker Solutions’ software development teams in Norway, Russia and Ukraine, the simulators used at iPort offer a unique approach that satisfies the needs of a wide range of clients. The iPort centre continues to be upgraded and is one of several such centres operated by Aker Solutions globally, all of which use projectiondesign.

Anders Løkke, Director of International Marketing, projectiondesign, comments: “Aker Solutions has a long tradition of industrial innovation and we are delighted that our projection technology forms a part of the cutting-edge work they are doing in increasing operational efficiency in the oil and gas industries.

“Wherever they have been used, our 3D projection solutions offer industry-leading levels of accuracy and reliability, providing a rapid return on investment not only for the companies that operate these simulators, but for their own customers as well.”

7thSense Design drives projection inside North Carolina’s ‘Daily Planet’

Four Delta Media Servers used to supply immersive audio and video to new Nature Research Center

Demonstrating its ability to customise its Delta media-server product to match the image-manipulation of show-control needs of demanding environments, 7thSense has supplied core technology to the Daily Planet – an immersive dome experience opened this week by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, NC.

An 80,000-square foot extension to the Museum the Nature Research Center (NRC) has been designed to bring research scientists and their work into the public eye. The Museum hopes that it will demystify research and inspire a new generation of scientists to follow in the footsteps of those whose work it showcases.

The centrepiece of the NRC – both physically and conceptually – is the SECU Daily Planet, a hemispherical dome that uses multimedia technology to link the virtual and natural worlds together. At regular intervals during the day, scientists will use the 40ft high, high-definition curved screen of the dome to present their latest research and its impact on current issues. This marks something of a departure from the majority of domed environments intended for consumer presentations, where the content follows a pre-arranged pattern that does not vary from day to day.

“The system design is unique,” confirms Ian Macpherson, Director, 7thSense. “We supplied a single Delta server to drive all six of the Christie projectors for the main display wall, with 2K x 2K uncompressed media resolution and real-time warp-and-blend to make a single, continuous canvas. A second Delta server then feeds another timeline into the live inputs of the first one. This allows the show-control system to drop media in real time onto this server as Timeline B, while Timeline A is playing the primary Delta.

“In effect, this means that both Delta servers can be re-programmed on the fly while the audience is watching the show, depending on the needs of the NRC and without any of the operators requiring any show-programming expertise.”

A seamless transition between the two timelines, known internally as Ambient Mode, is ensured by the provision of luma-key transition movies created by batwin+robin productions – which was responsible for the creative concept and content execution at the Daily Planet. 7thSense worked closely with b+r throughout, with AV systems contractor Electrosonic and show-control provider Smart Monkeys also playing pivotal roles in the realisation of the project.

As well as Ambient Mode, NRC staff can select other modes from the Smart Monkeys GUI which allows a choice of different mixes of live presentation windows and backgrounds. This allows a flexible use of the display system, moving from randomised playback to a more interactive experience.

Another unusual aspect of the Daily Planet is that its screen can be viewed from any one of three floors within the dome. The creative and technology teams have used this to their advantage, adding four Barco movable video projectors which move around the thin bands between the floors at the rear of the space, creating a composite video and lighting projection that extends way off the screen and onto other parts of the Planet’s architecture. Both Barco projectors are driven by a single Delta server , fully synchronised to the main show-control system.

“This exhibit pushes Delta very hard,” adds 7thSense’s Macpherson. “We have some 2,700 resources on our timeline, with additional real-time inserted media and up to four live captured inputs on-screen from various live presenters within the dome.

“The randomised and real-time inserted nature of the content means the Delta system has to provide seamless playback, even though it’s transitioning from one server to another, so that the ‘hidden’ server can be queued up for its next topic.

“There is a constant two-way communication between Delta and the Smart Monkeys show controller, and many new features were added to Delta specifically for this project.”

“The show programming was accomplished by 7thSense and Smart Monkeys over four weeks of intense on-site activity,” adds Gary Barnes Project Manager of Electrosonic. “In total the Delta servers are providing six channels of HD video and 16 channels of audio, together with time-accurate commands to trigger lighting and the selection of the next show.

“Since the Daily Planet opened, the systems have performed faultlessly, and we could not have asked for more conscientious and more creative partners than 7thSense Design. Between us we have created a unique experience, which combines the best of immersive multi-image technology with the freshness of a live and spontaneous theatre show. Seeing is believing!”

7thSense thinks ‘out of the box’ with new Delta Nano


World’s most affordable uncompressed 4:4:4 media server

7thSense Design announces the arrival of Delta Nano – a new, affordable media server that delivers full uncompressed 4:4:4 video playback at a freshly accessible price point.

Based on the core technology that drives 7thSense’s existing Delta range, Delta Nano comes in either a 1U rack-mount or small form-factor box chassis, and can store between 5 and 20 minutes of 4:4:4 video data. The unit has a single DVI/HDMI output and supports all standard frame-rates up to 30fps.

Ian Macpherson, Managing Director, 7thSense, says the new player takes the company into new market sectors. “Delta Nano is the perfect solution in places where people watch just a few minutes of looping media, for example to support a museum exhibit, to run information points in theme parks and other attractions, or to drive kiosks in showroom and retail digital signage applications.

“For this reason we have kept everything simple. Delta Nano has a new, web-based user interface which is easy to use, so content houses can simply copy their uncompressed TGA sequence output from After Effects or similar straight into the box, rather than go through laborious encode processing for MPG.

“Delta Nano is not aimed at multi-screen projection – that’s the job of our flagship Delta product – but you can sync two or more Nanos together, so that multiple kiosks can play the same show synchronously if required. There are also real-time warp and blend functions for display matching.”

Delta Nano delivers stereo audio alongside the video content, while its built-in software – accessible in a browser-based GUI via the product’s built-in TCP/IP connection – offers an easy to use interface for rapid show creation. Movies, still images, sound and text can all be easily combined and edited in a familiar non-linear editing workflow.

Delta Nano made its global debut at the InfoComm show in Las Vegas in June, where 7thSense supported the booth of one of its long-standing technology partners, Norway’s projectiondesign on booth N1351.

“This amazing little device delivers uncompressed HD video and show creation – all from a box that takes up the minimum of rack space or simply sits on the back of a flat-panel display.”

7thSense will also be showcasing real-world applications of Delta Nano at the company’s freshly opened Experience Centre, based at its newly opened International headquarters.

Projektion der Europeana-Archivdaten über die 3D ‚ECloud’

projectiondesign sponsert Europeana-Initiative für eine verstärkte kreative Nutzung von frei zugänglichen Daten

Das norwegische Unternehmen projectiondesign freut sich ankündigen zu können, dass es nun ein Hauptsponsor der Europeana General Plenary ist, die vom 13. – 15. Juni in der belgischen Stadt Leuven stattfinden wird.

Unter dem Motto „Connecting Society Through Culture” möchte die Eurpeana Plenary innovative Ansätze für digitalisierte Inhalte präsentieren, Teilnehmer zu neuen Ideen inspirieren sowie Menschen und Konzepte zusammenführen, um diese neuen Ideen auch in der Realität umzusetzen. Die Veranstaltung wird schätzungsweise ca. 250 Experten aus den folgenden Bereichen anziehen: Institutionen, die sich mit Kulturerbe beschäftigen, Communities, die mit Open Data (d. h. frei zugänglichen Daten) zu tun haben, und Unternehmen der Software- und Technologieentwicklungsbranche.

Eine Hauptattraktion der Europeana Plenary wird die ECloud sein – eine einzigartige visuelle Erfahrung mit persönlichen Geschichten über den 1. Weltkrieg, die im Rahmen der Europeana-Roadshow, die sich mit Familiengeschichten zwischen 1914 und 1918 beschäftigte, in ganz Europa gesammelt wurden. Als Sponsorbeitrag wird projectiondesign zur Unterstützung der ECloud sechs aktive stereoskopische 3D-Projektoren des Typs F35 AS3D zur Verfügung stellen. Dadurch wird eine 9 x 3 m große interaktive Videowand entstehen, die ein gleichzeitiges Durchsuchen und Anzeigen von mehreren Webseiten ermöglicht.

Die ECloud, bei deren Entwicklung Dr. Sarah Kenderdine und Prof. Jeffrey Shaw eine Pionierarbeit geleistet haben, entstand aus einer Zusammenarbeit zwischen Europeana, dem Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualization and Embodiment der City University of Hong Kong und dem australischen Victoria-Museum. Diese Zusammenarbeit baut auf den großflächigen 3D-Datenvisualisierungen auf, die im Rahmen des ALiVE-Projekts der City University of Hong Kong entstanden und insofern innovativ sind, als dass ALiVe Archiv-Datenbanken wiederverwendet, die direkt aus dem Internet stammen.

„Der Zweck dieses Projekts ist es, sowohl dem Publikum als auch den teilnehmenden Kulturorganisationen zu zeigen, dass dem Reichtum der Europeana Online-Daten eine neue Wertschätzung gegenübergebracht wird“, erklärt Sarah Kenderdine.

“Im Mittelpunkt des Projekts, übrigens einem Vorläuferprojekt anlässlich des 100. Jahrestages des Beginns des Ersten Weltkrieges, standen Materialien aus genau diesem Krieg. Das Projekt zeigt, dass die ECloud mithilfe der semantischen Beziehungen der vorhandenen Metadaten die Europeana API und die hochauflösenden Inhalte, die in Beständen der Europeana-Partner vorhanden sind, in einer öffentlichen Ausstellungsumgebung nutzen kann.

„Mit 3D können wir 2D-Daten in dynamischen Visualisierungen neu definieren. Dadurch erhöht sich nicht nur die Datenattraktivität, sondern auch die kognitive Wirkung der großformatig angezeigten Daten, die nun in 3D zu sehen sind. Solche Visualisierungsstrategien lassen zukünftige endlose Kombinationsmöglichkeiten für den Nutzer, die mit 2D nicht möglich wären, erahnen.

„Wir glauben, dass projectiondesign für ein Projekt wie die ECloud der perfekte Partner für uns ist. Schließlich sind die 3D-Projektorlösungen des Unternehmens, die Hardware-Architekturen für die Anpassungsverwaltung sowie die Geometrie-Korrektur für große Umgebungen mit mehreren Projektoren die zuverlässigsten und robustesten, die derzeit auf dem Markt erhältlich sind. Aus diesen Gründen arbeiten wir ausschließlich mit projectiondesign zusammen.“

Vor der Europeana Plenary wurde die ECloud erstmals am Mittwoch, dem 9. Mai in Brüssel, bei einem wichtigen Ereignis der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert. Diese Veranstaltung, die gemeinsam von Europeana und der Europäischen Kommission organisiert wurde, soll das Bewusstsein für die vielen Ressourcen von Europeana schärfen und aufzeigen, wie das kulturelle Online-Erbe Europas die Kreativität und digitale Innovation steigern kann. Die Veranstaltung wird von ungefähr 100 Interessensvertretern von Kulturinstitutionen und den Kreativbranchen besucht.

„Europeana ist ein einziger Zugangspunkt für Millionen von Büchern, Gemälden, Filmen, Museumsgegenständen und Archivdaten, die in ganz Europa digitalisiert wurden“, erklärt Harry Verwayen, der Europeana-Leiter für Geschäftsentwicklung. „Dabei handelt es sich um eine maßgebliche Quelle von Daten, die von kulturellen und wissenschaftlichen Einrichtungen aus ganz Europa stammen.

“Was mir an der von uns entwickelten ECloud-Installation so gut gefällt, ist die Möglichkeit der Verwandlung schlichter Kulturartefakte in ein umwerfendes Erlebnis. Die ECloud ist ein äußerst innovativer Ansatz, und wir sind sehr zufrieden damit, wie sich alles entwickelt hat.“

„Die kulturelle Bedeutung der 3D- und interaktiven Visualisierungstechnologie war für uns bei projectiondesign schon immer sehr wichtig”, betont Thierry Ollivier vom Unternehmen. „Bei der Bereitstellung von Projektoren für die ECloud geht es nicht nur darum, uns bei der kreativen Community Europas einen Namen zu machen, vielmehr geht es darum, Leuten sprichwörtlich die Augen zu öffnen für die Möglichkeiten, die sich durch die Digitalisierung von Archivinhalten und den freien Zugang zu solchen Inhalten eröffnen.

Ohio-based integrator to provide 16-channel projected visualization solution with diverse market applications

The migration of immersive displays to the worlds of enterprise conferencing and collaboration will be a key theme for projectiondesign® at this year’s InfoComm 2012 show, as the Norwegian manufacturer teams up with BOI Solutions, Inc., to showcase its F22 projectors integrated in a 16-channel visualization solution on its booth in Las Vegas.

“We use projectiondesign projectors with our top customers ranging from Procter & Gamble (P&G) through to Starbucks, NFL Films, Honda and the U.S. Military. BOI Solutions designs research simulators and high-end conference rooms using the highest levels of video and audio systems engineering. Based in Ohio, the firm has pioneered the convergence of immersive displays with corporate meeting-room systems, even designing a unique conference-room concept – known as the Business Sphere – around a curved screen for which it co-holds a patent with P&G,” says Bill Othick, vice-president of BOI.

“Our company is a think-tank that designs working spaces, as opposed to a typical audio-visual firm that installs equipment in certain kinds of rooms,” adds Bill Othick. “When you make data really visual, it is quicker and easier to process than if it simply sits on a spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation.”

By applying techniques more commonly used in product visualization – such as the edge-blending and warping of multiple projected images and high-quality, multi-channel surround sound – to meeting rooms, BOI helps enterprises change the way they think about business, bringing market reports and strategies to life in the same way that a new product or landscape can be viewed from any angle in an industrial or military simulation environment.

Such an approach requires BOI to stay at the forefront of audiovisual technology, and Othick says he could not ask for a more responsive partner than projectiondesign.

“Our success is driven by our ability to integrate technologies of higher and higher performance capabilities, and we’ve used projectiondesign in many jobs for clients such as P&G and NFL Films,” adds Othick. “The resolution of the projectors is excellent, their imaging is ultra-dependable, and the service and support we receive from the company is second to none.

“We’re excited about being part of projectiondesign’s InfoComm exhibit plans and look forward to meeting current and future end-customers while they are literally right in front of our unique approach to visualization.”

Anders Løkke, Marketing Director, projectiondesign, adds: “The InfoComm show always delivers a strong mix of international integrators and end-users, and we believe our 16-channel projected display, designed and built in partnership with BOI, will inspire both communities to see how visualization displays are moving from niche markets into everyday enterprise communication.”

Set up and alignment of all projectors in the BOI Solutions 16-channel visualization wall at InfoComm is achieved using Scalable Display Technologies’ software and expertise.

Dataton brings colour, movement and sound to Les Baux de Provence

Videmus supplies WATCHOUT to enable transformation of stone labyrinth onto ‘Quarries of Light’

Dataton is delighted to announce that its WATCHOUT multi-display and show-management software has been used as a core technology at a major new art installation in the south of France.

A collaboration between the town of Les Baux de Provence and the specialist French venue management company Culturespaces, ‘Carrières de Lumières’ (‘Quarries of Light’) is a hi-tech re-purposing of the Carrières du Val d’Enfer – a network of abandoned chalk-mining tunnels close to the historic Provençal village.

With a subterranean feel, the Carrières de Lumières is a labyrinth almost 200 metres long that varies in height between 10 and 15 metres. In its newly re-invented form, the space provides the perfect backdrop for large-scale video projection – a place where visitors can view images close to or from a greater distance away, while the unique texture of the chalk surfaces adds further visual interest to whatever artistic content is being displayed.

The Carrières de Lumières opened to the public in March of this year with its first show – ‘Gauguin, Van Gogh, les peintres de la couleur.’ The show, which literally throws new light on the colours used by two of art history’s most celebrated painters by projecting still photographs and video animations oftheir works, was commissioned from designer Gianfranco Iannuzzi by Culturespace founder Bruno Monnier.

As well as the walls of the former quarry, the show uses the floor as a projection surface, while a discreetly installed audio system plays a series of atmospheric 12-track musical backgrounds through a network of 50 loudspeakers. A stage-lighting setup based on LED sources accentuates the stonework with raking light at times when the ‘screens’ are not showing any content.

In all, there are 68 video projectors, all ceiling-mounted to minimize the impact of projected light beams on visitors. Each projector has its own server content running an individual Dataton WATCHOUT™ channels. These, together with a second machine running the Medialon Manager show-control system with which WATCHOUT runs in sync, make a total of 70 devices in total – all housed in an air-conditioned control room located on-site but accessible only by staff.

The WATCHOUT-equipped servers were supplied by Videmus, Dataton’s partner for WATCHOUT in France. The company worked closely with an installation team led by technical manager Sebastien Chapuis, and with project staff Mathieu Delfine, Florence Amat and Agathe Poisson.

“The project team liked the WATCHOUT solution because of its simplicity,” explains Eric Lambert, managing director, Videmus. “As well as ensuring that all the projectors receive their video content at full resolution and in perfect sync with each other, WATCHOUT also uses MIDI commands to sequence the on-site audio DSP settings so that the right soundtrack is played through the right speakers at the right time, while at the same time controlling a DMX-512 universe for the LED lighting.

“All this is then managed by Medialon Manager show-control system, which operates a seven-day calendar so that the show begins and ends every day, at the right time of day, without the staff having to worry about a thing.”

Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director, Dataton, comments: “The Carrières de Lumières is a fantastic space in which to appreciate art and represents a brilliant usage of WATCHOUT. The effects created are truly stunning and we feel sure that they will lead to a greater appreciation not just of these great paintings, but also of the old stone quarry itself.”

The final word goes to the show’s designer, Gianfranco Iannuzzi, who enthuses: “The deployment of WATCHOUT and the support of Videmus during the three months of setup for this show were truly invaluable. They allowed me to devote myselfentirely to the design and content creation which, with the help of my staff, Massimiliano Siccardi and Renato Gatto, we managed to realize on time and with, we believe, truly unique results.”
