Aurora Multimedia transformed the catwalk show space into a multi-screen video installation at Somerset House for London Fashion Week to showcase three films, which were designed to play in sequence to the invited audience.
The event featured the unveiling of exclusive content that has never been seen before and the films needed to be presented in an unique installation style whilst being large scale, high quality and impactful.
Each film was created in a different aspect ratio and orientation, which added to the design challenge for the video installation. This required one of the zones’ screens and projectors to be rotated into a portrait format. A 45 minute de-rig time presented the challenge of designing a large scale installation that could be broken down, packed and transported off site very quickly.
A total of nine 6,000 lumens Panasonic full HD projectors were used with 0.8:1 short throw lenses and nine Stumpfl Monoblox rear projection screens, built into a custom designed set. Two S8 Ai media servers, supplied by Res, controlled the AV playback and projection across the screens in sequence. One Ai system outputted six unique 1920×1080 DVI outputs (+GUI) , the second system ran with three unique 1920×1080 DVI outputs (+GUI).
