Christie Roadster in Europe’s first permanent outdoor projection-mapping display

Hungarian 3D video experts bring ruined castle to life

Christie projection is at the center of what is believed to be the first permanent outdoor pixel-mapping project ever staged in Europe.

The initiative of saving the small early 19th century Breda Castle, situated close to the eastern border of Hungary, by developing it into a new tourist attraction, is the result of a collaboration between owners, the Megyeri family, and the initiator, Informax Ltd. Working with Bordos ArtWorks and Invited Artists (run by Budapest-based 3D artist László Zsolt Bordos) and András Schmid (of Christie technical partner DNN|360), they have mapped the façade in a series of stunning animated tableaux.




From 15th June onwards, an artistic video-mapping show will be projected every day (and every hour) after dark, using the 3kW Xenon light engine of a Christie Roadster HD18K (18000 ANSI lumens) projector, equipped with 1.8-2.6:1 HD zoom lens, and it is this that the owners now hope will help save the ruined castle.
