THE FUTURE OF IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES
A multi-sensory showcase driven by Pro-AV solutions greeted visitors at this year’s Show. The Future of Immersive Experiences is a walk-through 15×5 metre area that offers a sneak peek into the future of visual and immersive storytelling. It features a variety of real-time generative effects based on user interaction, projection mapping and holographic projection, converging art, technology and sensory experiences. The three key areas of experience are:
- The Gateway to the Metaverse, which combines key metaverse building blocks – including realtime 3D graphics, spatial technologies and advanced display interfaces – to deliver a one-of-a-kind gateway to the metaverse.
- The Next-level of Projection Mapping, which lets audience “see and experience” how 3D objects are projected onto real-world objects using pixel-by-pixel mapping from the virtual to the real world. A 3D Car Projection Mapping is applied to show effects and animation directly on a car-like object.
- A New Holographic Experience, which shows how holographic projection gives new dimension to storytelling. This technology is increasingly popular with the Location Based Experience (LBX) industry in places such as experience centres, theme parks, theatres and live performances.
This showcase is fully designed, system-built and integrated by Vega Global, in partnership with disguise.
Equipment contributors include Christie, Panasonic, BenQ and Lighting & Equipment.
