Barco Mixes it Up at InfoComm

Barco’s new LED product. It’s the most high res LED– 1.6mm pixel pitch– that’s ever been done for a rugged, premium LED product for the event/staging market. Normally this high of a resolution you only see in indoor LED.

After seeing some small-scale 3D projection mapping demos at InfoComm yesterday, more intriguing demos keep turning up at InfoComm. Not in Barco booth but in a separate demo room in the convention center, Barco is showing some interesting things. The company has a laser phosphor projector in the 7K lumen range– a nice compliment to its huge-gun laser projector for the cinema market about which we heard Monday at the Display Summit at InfoComm. And also a nice pixel-mapping demo at small scale–reproducing building-size 3D projection mapping.

The Christie Corvette– 3D Projection Mapping at InfoComm

The set has both the floor, or ground, and the background made with Christie MicroTiles. And the model Corvette, about a two feet long, is an actual 3D model (solid white) onto which 3 Christie DLP projectors project the car’s color, features, etc.

For the past couple of InfoComm shows, one of the more intriguing trends on view has been pixel mapping, also called 3D projection mapping. Of course, this is not just for tradeshow demos. Projection mapping can be seen at very high-end live events, where, for example, the entire side of a large building becomes a screen. But don’t think that someone is just pointing a high-lumen video projector at a building. We’re talking here about getting the pixels to literally “map” every nuance of the surface of the object. In other words, the focal plane is not constant but mirrors the changing shape of the surface. And even better, the projector knows the surface changes and software can throw custom content, at the appropriate luminance and focus, onto different parts of the surface, on demand. The effect is stunning.
