K in Kortrijk, a brand new shopping centre, recently celebrated its grand opening with a week full of special activities. The eye-catcher was without any doubt the High-Definition building projection on the main tower of the shopping centre. In collaboration with ASP BlueSquare, ACT Lighting Design and Prismax, our audiovisual department used their know-how to realise this project.
On each side of the building, we used 2 Barco HD30 projectors with a Coolux Pandora’s Box server system.
The project encountered two major problems:
- We had to create a network between the two locations of the projectors and servers.
- At the south-side, we had an apartment at our disposal, where 2 projectors were placed towards the building, and where the crew was located to manage the whole set-up.
- At the east-side, we had to build a 9 meter high tower, leaving us with a 200 meters distance from the apartment.
Thanks to our networking knowledge and experience, we were able to apply the solution that gave the best performance results, at a reasonably low cost.
- Furthermore, we had to create a perfect map of the building on the Coolux system. Since every video was created to interact with the building structure, a perfect mapping of the building relief was an absolute requirement.
Take a look at the video below, and see how everything turned out for the best…
