Digital projection brings to life a bygone era in Japan


Over 30 Digital Projection E-Vision Laser 10K projectors were deployed by Danny Rose Studio to illuminate floors, ceilings and walls during an exhibition at the Kadokawa Culture Museum in Japan.

With 10,500 lumens available from E-Vision Laser 10K projectors, they provide a stable and predictable light source for up to 20,000 hours and feature built-in edge blending capabilities, ensuring a consistent image is created from of several projectors.

Along with laser digital projection technology, a VNS GeoBox video wall controller was chosen to control the edge blending output of multiple projectors, coupled with a BrightSign media player to stream the video content.

The “Spirit of Japan” exhibition contains small works of art illustrating everyday life, created in Japan from the 17th to the 19th century. These pieces gained popularity as they circulated in the Western world, even influencing the Impressionist art movement.

Colorful fans, glowing lanterns, cherry blossoms swaying in the wind: nostalgia for the past has found a new lease of life in the Spirit of japan exhibition, which will immerse visitors in the colorful history of Japan over the coming spring.

Creators from a variety of fields, including digital artists, programmers, and musicians, have worked to combine historic works of art – in this case from 19th-century Japan – with contemporary technologies and narratives to create a whole new type of large-scale visual / spatial installation.

Aaron Hsu of Digital Projection Japan said that having so many projectors in one room created challenges: “Due to the limited height of the exhibition hall ceiling, floor projection required more projectors. to successfully display the entire image – we needed a creative solution to achieve this. “

“While traditionally you pointed the spotlight down at the ground, we actually pointed them up but used the UST periscope lens, giving us extra height and coverage. »Using too many projectors on the ground would have caused light to diffuse and would have had a negative effect on the image quality on the walls, so this solution of using UST lenses made it possible to ” obtain optimum performance for all fabrics.

Mark Wadsworth, vice president of Digital Projection, is delighted that the company’s products have been chosen from a project of this importance. “This art exhibit requires 360-degree visuals, which involves a tremendous amount of edge blending without compromising image quality,” he said. “The exhibit looks amazing – we are really proud to be part of such a visually impressive project. It just shows what E-Vision lasers are capable of. “
