Multi-Screen Development Goes Big
Last year, I saw one of the coolest development projects I’ve seen in a long time. Or maybe ever. It was a YouTube video of 3D projections on the side of a building. The graphics just amazed me! The effects looked so real: buildings falling apart or being taken over by butterflies right before your eyes! The technology trick had me totally hooked, and I added it to my development bucket list. Here’s one of the videos that inspired me:
I was super excited when an opportunity to create a project like this came to us only a few weeks ago, to be completed in January. We spent countless hours researching and learning what it takes to create a project of this magnitude. It takes a lot of time, coordination and knowledge and, of course, a sufficient budget. Unfortunately, we learned that the only resource we couldn’t control — time — would be an issue, and we had to concede. We know that things don’t always work out the way you hope, but if you can leave a situation with new knowledge, new skills and the motivation to create an awesome project at another time, it can still be a valuable experience.
With HDI’s 15 years of multimedia experience and an absolute love of technology and new ideas, we see the development of building projections as a perfect fit for us. Our team now knows all about the required hardware and software, including Pandora’s Box Media Server, a Coolux Media Systems product that allows us to create elaborate digital images and project them onto any surface, no matter the size or shape. 3D images can be any style, shape or color and move any way you can imagine, which enables us to create something totally customized to our clients’ needs. (For more information on its capabilities, click here.) In our recent research, we made important contacts, too, including partners who are masters at Pandora’s Box. Below is another video that shows how we can use the technology to create a unique experience:
Building projections can be inside or outside and are a great way to make a big statement. We now have the tools to do it bigger and better than any example we’ve seen, and with the right amount of time and budget, we can create something special and spectacular for any event. If you’re curious, contact us. We’d love to share with you how you can use this technology to add the “Wow!” factor to your next event.
