Projection Mapping

This relatively new artform involves creating a 3d model of an existing architectural building, and using software, mapping a animation sequence to it in such a way that the building itself seems to come to life.

Projection Mapping is used around the world for large-scale events, celebrations, anniversaries or launches.

Examples

  • Projects made using the Hippotizer media server (on the TMB website)
  • The video below is from the New Year celebrations in the city of Sugarland, Texas, USA. LD Systems provided sound, lights, video and staging for the 25th anniversary of the city.
    The equipment included a grandMA lighting console, Barco HD projectors, Hippotizer HD media server and mapping system, and EV X-Line concert speakers.
    Artists were Alan Demafiles, Sato Wood and Jack Hattingh of TVP (Texas Video & Post).
    TVP produced the content headed by Jack Hattingh and the LD Systems team was headed by A.J. Freysteinson.
