TDC resumes role of ‘White Night’

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: The recent White Night Melbourne paid tribute to the famous, La Trobe Reading Room inside the State Library of Victoria, by projecting 360-degrees of artwork inside the domed room. Outside, the front of the State Library was illuminated along with the forecourt grass, steps and trees, displaying a variety of video projections. To achieve this, video technology solutions provider, TDC was called back into action, having provided similar projection mapping at previous White Night events.

The La Trobe Reading Room is octagonal and 1,000m wide, with a 35m high dome. TDC used Barco HDF-W26 large-format projectors, integrated with d3 Technologies’ d3 4x4pro media servers, which ran VFC output cards, to create a 360-degree blended projection area of 120m x 30m. A single image comprising 20,000 pixels was formed from 8K wide and 2.5K high resolution rendering.

‘It was a very challenging and complex room in which to line up each video projector and image,’ stated TDC head technician, Steve Cain. ‘The size of the image allowed us to perform a true pixel lock on all server outputs through to projection, making for the sharpest image. To achieve this, I made good use of the pre-visualisation tool and footprint features of our d3 4x4pro servers.’

The projection area on the outside of the library was 80m x 24m, for which TDC deployed further HDF-W26 projectors. These were ‘integrated with Christie Pandora’s Box media servers for playback,’ explained TDC technical prokect manager, Pete Lynn. ‘By taking on this project, working alongside artists, Amanda Morgan, James HH Morgan and DJ JNETT, TDC has attempted to inspire human learning.’
