Why video is getting a bigger part in theatre talks about the many ways of incorporating video and projection mapping into live performance.
Hitachi introduces a 3,500 lumen LED projector with 20,000 hour lifetime. Projector Central reviewed it, saying “quite simply, the Hitachi LP-WU3500’s combination of image quality, quiet operation, brightness, reliability, and setup flexibility adds up to a solid value and an impressive choice.”
Mondo interviewed James Murray of Projection Artworks, and there was this gem of a quote:
“With projection-mapped installations moving out of the temporary and into the permanent, lighting designers, building owners and architects will soon be able to create the illusion of continually changing structures and surfaces. The creative possibilities are electrifyingly endless and you don’t even need a large scale ‘canvas’ to pull it off…this technology can be used to create magic in smaller spaces too. From restaurant table tops to corporate reception areas, no space is too big or too small to benefit from the sheer amazement that goes hand-in-hand with permanent projection-mapped installations.”
