Projection mapping

Create jaw-dropping, reality-smashing 3D spectacles

​​​Projection mapping is an exciting projection technique that uses specialized software and other technologies to warp and blend projected images so they fit perfectly on irregularly-shaped “screens” such as buildings, interior spaces, objects and natural landscapes.

The result – almost any surface, flat or irregular, can be masked with dynamic visuals, transforming what is reality for the audience into illusions and images of infinite possibilities - ideal for advertising, branding, entertainment, public art, and trade show presentations.

What can projection mapping offer?

  • A “wow-factor” – when done right, the visual impact of projection mapping transcends ordinary video projection to deliver memorable experiences for any audience.
  • Cost-effective transformation of any space - display many different visuals easily on any surface or structure.
  • The projected image is mapped to fit the surface and space – you don’t need to make physical changes to the structure of your display. The image can mask and change the look of everything you are projecting onto.
