Projection mapping utilizes video projectors to “map” a video image projected onto an object, structure, or even mist or water. The sky is the limit for the possibilities of what surfaces, objects and even water that we can map, ranging from inflatable structures of any possible structures or designs of any shape and size! We can even create giant projections in the sky as if out of nothing like the “Bat Signal” such as a recent project that we did for the NFL at the Super Bowl in Miami. We can also video projection map the outside of our geodesic and inflatable projection domes. This is an option that can really make the domes look as amazing on the outside as they do on the inside!
Video mapping can also be in the form of LED or LCD panels or flat screens. These are emissive displays and so they emit the light from within as opposed to projection where the surface is reflecting the projected light. Because of this there are some applications where these types of displays are much more applicable and efficient such as concerts and stage shows where there is a lot of other light being used. This can “wash out” the video projection making the image look dim even with the brightest projectors. LED technology has gotten to be ultra-bright and ultra-high resolution so that these displays create an amazing image.
Interactive Projection Mapping
Omnispace takes projection mapping to the ultimate level by designing fully immersive “Spatial Augmented Reality Environments” where every single surface being video mapped and fully interactive! These fully projection mapped environments allow for the users to interact with the projected imagery using an advanced tracking system and all without the use of VR or AR goggles.
We can go so far as to personalize any environment to and customize it to any individual using our tracking system! This opens the door for all kinds of applications from full entertainment to mechanical engineering with visual design and science technologies.
