Our Top Picks
Panasonic Real-Time Tracking and Projection Mapping
Probably one of the coolest things at InfoComm this year was found at the Panasonic’s booth. They showcased interesting innovations and “next-generation tech”, amongst them their high speed real-time tracking and projection mapping system caught our eye. In their own words “it will enable high resolution (1920 x 1080) images at 10,000 lumens ANSI brightness to be mapped onto fast-moving objects, such as performers on stage, with masking and trimming applied over video and fed to the projector in real time.”
Optoma Interactive Projection Mapping Demos
Optoma had many interesting things to feature in the show and some great demos to entertain us with. Amongst them a creative spherical mapping demo showcasing their ZU510-W Laser Projector, an interactive projection floor mapping demo with the WU1500 Projector and another interactive mapping demo featuring the ZH400UST Ultra-Short Throw Laser Projector.
Christie Mystique For 3D Mapping
The Christie Center at InfoComm was one of the main attractions of the show. You could see their iconic Wolf Head and a lot of LED walls. More importantly for us, the center featured projection mapping using Christie Boxer and Pandoras Box Quad Server, plus they showcased 3D mapping using the Christie Mystique solution.
D3 Technologies GX Range For Real-Time Effects
D3 Technologies introduced their new branding at the show. According to d3’s Technical Sales Manager, Marcus Bengtsson, “the gx range has been designed to facilitate the coming wave of generative content being used in live show design.”
Elumenati Dome by UNC Chapel Hill School of Journalism
UNC was showcasing student material with the Elumenati dome, an amazing and innovative solution for immersive visualization. They were the only University that we saw at the show and we found their project inspiring!
