Frequently Asked Questions

What is video mapping?

Video mapping, or projection mapping, is the process of using spatial augmented reality to turn objects into a display surface, challenging the perceptions of what is real. Objects become animated as video and light displays are used to tell a story and/or concept.

Video mapping uses everyday projectors but instead of projecting onto a flat screen the light is mapped onto any surface. Usually, video mapping displays are projected onto complex industrial landscapes such as buildings, small indoor objects or theatrical stages.

By using specialised software, three-dimensional and four-dimensional objects are spatially mapped on a virtual program, which mimics the real environment that the animation is projected on. Video mapping is typically combined with music to enhance the display and has been used as backgrounds for some of the biggest DJs and artists in the music industry.

What items can I project a video on to?

Almost anything! From cakes to entire buildings, video mapping displays can be customised to suit the event no matter how big or small the chosen projection area is.

Popular objects to video map include buildings and cars, but as the technique progresses, more and more elaborate objects and spaces are being used as surfaces for video mapping. Some of our artists can video map guests’ faces for thrilling interactive activations at events, while others can video map onto a fine transparent net or water, taking the technology to a whole other level. 

How do dancers, magicians and acrobats use 3D and 4D video mapping in their performances?

In addition to using video mapping for car reveals and static images, dancers, magicians and acrobats have increasingly started to incorporate video mapping into their performances to create visually stunning and futuristic displays of art. Outstanding entertainment that challenges the barriers between the real world and the digital world, leaves audiences of all ages amazed and wanting more.

A brilliant take on the classical and traditional art forms of performance that is exciting, revolutionary and fantastic entertainment for any occasion.

What type of event does 3D and 4D video mapping fit into?

What is so great about video mapping is that it can fit into any event due to it’s capability of being completely customisable. Video mapping is a popular choice for advertising, brand launches, live concerts, fashion shows, theatre, gaming, computing and any event that wants to tell a story through imagery and video.

What special requirements do I need to consider when booking a 3D or 4D video mapping act?

There are a variety of factors to consider when hiring a video mapping service such as;

  • Never have lights on the screen where the video mapping is being projected

  • Ensure that air conditioning and wind machines are switched off

  • Ensure that there is never any dust on the screen

  • For outside projections showing the projections when it is dark is most effective

  • Ensure that the projector is well covered if it rains

  • If projecting onto the side of a building ensure that the surface is smooth and of the correct diameters for the graphics

Do you offer customised video mapping content?

Absolutely! Video mapping is renowned for its ability to turn your vision into a reality as our video mapping teams work closely with you to ensure that your vision materialised right before your very eyes.

How long does it take to set up the stage for a video mapping projection?

On average it takes between 1-2 hours to set up depending on the venue and size of the show.

How long do 3D and 4D video mapping projections normally last?

Video mapping projections can last anything from five minutes up to a couple of hours, it really does depend on how long you want your video mapping act to go on for. Whether it is used to shock audiences with a short but gripping and action filled animation or to project onto the side of a building to stimulate attention to that one fixed point for an extended amount of time. How long the projection lasts is up to you and will become clear once you have discussed your vision with our Entertainment Specialists.

CASE STUDY: A Tale of Fire and Ice at Lake Tahoe

We rose to the challenge for our client’s incredible, ‘Fire & Ice’ themed three-day event at Lake Tahoe. We assembled an awe-inspiring entertainment package that featured 3D video mapping, aerialism and more. 

Removing pieces of the ceiling to run rigging for our aerialists, we were able to overcome physical obstacles to offer both Aerial Hoop and an Aerial Net performance, that saw guests literally gasp in amazement! We also created bespoke 8ft cubes with dancing ballerinas performing inside each cube. 

As the performances progressed, our ballerinas could be seen interacting with immersive 3D video mapping projected onto the cubes, that incorporated both digital ‘fire’ and ‘ice’.
