A 180-degree semi-circular facade transformed into a vast canvas


Panasonic flagship models have no trouble overcoming the challenge 


This year’s project planned to transform the facade of the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) into a vast canvas showcasing the beauty of Mother Nature accompanied by a showcase of light and sound.

The project was to display a large image onto a 180-degree semi-circular screen, greatly surpassing last year's 120-degree screen. Similar to last year, in order to install projectors on the front lawn between the building and the street in a manner that wouldn’t block the audience’s view, they had to severely limit the distance from the building to the projectors.


The wide range of optional lenses for the PT-DZ21K did a very good job on this installation. In addition to the ET-D75LE6 short zoom lens (0.9-1.1:1) that was used last year, an ET-D75LE50 fixed-focus lens (0.7:1) was used this year, enabling large-screen projection at even a shorter distance.

The use of Panasonic PT-DZ21K 3-Chip DLP™ projectors ensured high brightness and high picture quality for this outdoor projection mapping program.

Since the projector body is compact and lightweight, the projectors could easily be installed onto high platforms.
The 12-amp power supply also did not require a special power source, and the four-lamp system prevented image interruptions.

The PT-DZ21K projectors' easy setup features, minimal servicing requirements, and strong support from Panasonic’s sales and engineering personnel made sure that there were no major problems, which was especially important since the event was only held over two weekends.


A truly immersive experience

Under the veil of darkness, the small team of five projectors created a huge canvas of light.

Surreal images were projected onto the semi-circular screen like a kaleidoscope, immersing viewers in another world.

Visitors were entranced by the brilliant light created by cutting-edge technology as they enjoyed a wonderful midnight walk.

A yearly Night Festival tradition that draws big crow

The annual Singapore Night Festival, which marked the 7th edition this year, returned with the theme “Bold and Beautiful.”

“Night Lights,” a yearly tradition in this Night Festival is now a light projection at the Art & Museum district that draws big crowds on two exclusive weekends. This year was no different. This year’s Night Lights projects have doubled in scale with artwork by both local and foreign artists.
