The Stealth and Orb Modular Wall are the perfect canvas for the trending technologies of 3D Augmented Projection Mapping and Blending. Projection mapping, used on buildings and large structures like the Opera House during the Vivid Festival for artistic application can also be utilised very creatively in the corporate event environment for conferences, exhibitions, themed dinners and gala awards.
What is the difference between projection mapping, projection blending and augmented reality projection mapping?
Projection is an image made of light that beams onto a screen or surface. Projection mapping is a broad term that means to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for image or video projection. These objects may be complex 3D industrial landscapes, such as buildings or any surface of any kind with an irregular shape such as cars, wide format projection screens or our Stealth and Orb Modular Wall.
Projection blending is a form of projection mapping in loose terms. When more than one projector is used to create an image that the eye perceives as one big unbroken image this is the application of projection blending. Projection Blending is used in multi projector mapping but we also use projection blending in many standard audio visual setups when wide format screens are used in corporate events.
Augmented 3D projection mapping is projection mapping and in applications of more than one projector will contain projection blending – but instead of just projecting an image or video onto the irregular surface the surface becomes the base for optical visual trickery. Our Stealth and Orb Modular Wall featuring augmented projection mapping content creates the illusion that the static modular wall is moving, breaking or being manipulated in a way that is a figment of our optical imagination.
Where does the content for projection mapping come from and is it expensive?
Projection mapping content can either have a purpose and tell a story which requires custom content creation, or be visual eye candy that creates a great backdrop for conferences or awards programs. There are many cost-effective online media re-sellers of visual content that can be used in projection mapping as a backdrop. If the intent is to create a surface that tells a story, then professional animators and or editors will need to be used to create content that suits the canvas.
Augmented projection mapping with optical visual trickery is the most complicated to produce and requires the actual canvas be available in a 3D digital model so that our animators can create custom content exactly representative to the physical Stealth modular wall canvas. We offer very cost-effective options of content creation and have an extensive library of off the shelf augmented content available and ready to been projection mapped.
The Stealth and Orb Modular Wall is designed exclusively in Australia as a cost effective projection mapping solution for any event.
