Projection Mapping is a video projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. By using specialized software, a two or three-dimensional object can be spatially mapped. Using algorithms, which mimic the real environments, the image can be programmed to precisely display on a non-typical projection surface. Any surface can become a dynamic video display. Several sources of video can project onto different surfaces from a single projector.
Mapping can be used for ballroom events to light up an all-white set that serves as a backdrop to your meeting. It can then change imagery and tone with every presenter. It can be a single element in the foyer or ballroom that serves as an art piece that shows local imagery mixed with your brand imagery for an intriguing reminder of where you are and why. And, it can simply be “painted” onto any surface that lends itself to the unexpected. Ambient light is the one major factor that dictates where and when projection mapping can be used most effectively.
