Held in conjunction with the annual Singapore Night Festival in late August 2013, a projection mapping program called "The Magic Melody" by Tigrelab excited audiences as it transformed the facade of the Singapore Art Museum into an interactive futuristic musical instrument. This year, Panasonic supported the festival as the official projection partner.
Broadcast Professional, a forerunner in the broadcasting and recording industry of Southeast Asia, faced a unique challenge. 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. They also needed compact, lightweight projectors to simplify the installation.
Also, in addition to the need for high brightness, high contrast, and high resolution for the advanced visual programs that were used to project onto large screens with partially curved surfaces, the capability to maintain high picture quality was essential for projecting onto the non-flat screens.
The use of Panasonic PT-DZ21K 3-Chip DLP™ projectors ensured the high brightness and high picture quality for this outdoor projection mapping program.
High brightness, a high contrast ratio and high resolution allowed bright and vibrant large-screen projection. Since the projector body as 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 offers a wide line up of optional lenses. Among them, the
ET-D75LE6 short-throw zoom lens was an ideal match for this application. The portrait capability allowed a single PT-DZ21K to provide the necessary brightness and picture quality for the long, vertical projection of the center tower.
Panasonic’s Multi-Screen Support System and Geometric Adjustment function maintained high image quality while allowing 3D projection mapping. Strong support from Panasonic’s sales and engineering team also maximized the PT-DZ21K performance to ensure success.
The classical facade was ablaze with the latest visual technology
The Singapore Art Museum’s facade was covered with a fantastic video mapping projection, transforming it into a canvas of colorful video displays. Several tablets were installed in front of the museum, allowing viewers to manipulate and change the video display “just like magic.” Local residents viewed the different faces of this historic building and enjoyed a vibrant summer night.
