Panasonic projectors are popping up at high profile happenings all over the city. Here are a few examples of fun ways to meaningfully incorporate projections into an event story.
The 19th Biennale of Sydney, Australia’s largest and most exciting contemporary visual arts festival, showcased the work of nearly 1600 artists from more around the world. Panasonic’s latest projectors and lenses were used at 20 installations from renowned artists such as Eva Koch, Ulla von Brandenburg and Pipilotti Rist. One of the major video artworks, Eva Koch’s ‘I am the river’, used a Panasonic state-of-the-art PT-DZ21K 3-chip DLP projector vertically-mounted and front-projecting onto a special 13m high by 7.3m wide screen. It was chosen for its exceptionally high brightness of 20,000 lumens and the 3-chip DLP technology that produced true-to-life colours.
Panasonic also created a interactive multimedia experience for the Australian Museum’s Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family exhibition using cutting-edge Panasonic projectors and lenses. The museum was able to coin a world-first edge-blending technique that created an immersive audio-visual experience of dinosaurs wandering through Sydney Harbour. This new technique saved Australian Museum roughly $200,000.
Panasonic has also created an exciting visual world using a 22-metre curved LED digital signage display at the new look Macquarie Centre in Sydney’s North Ryde. The ceiling-mounted display shows ever-changing overhead effects that take advantage of its unusual location. The display was built precisely to the installation requirements at the Panasonic factory. Modular 800mm x 800mm LED panels were manufactured with a curved design to fit into the ceiling space and then shipped to North Ryde, where they were installed in time for the opening of the first stage of the revamped centre.
