Global print technology company Epson announces that is has paired with Las Vegas-based 4Wall Entertainment, a lighting and video equipment company, to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience to fans of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas’ Runnin’ Rebels basketball team.
4Wall uses Epson Pro L25000U Laser WUXGA 3LCD projectors to power UNLV’s immersive pregame experience through the art of projection mapping across Tarkanian Court at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus.
Las Vegas-based oogoog Productions handles the content creation for the show.
Utilizing the pixel mapping technique for accurate tracing of all lines of the court, and alpha mask creation for pinpoint accuracy, the pregame show includes 3D modeling, motion graphics, video and text overlays. Eight Epson Pro L25000U laser projectors are installed above the court and programmed to converge together displaying one large image over the entire court. From sharper images and brilliant colors, to flexibility without drawbacks of restrictive technology equipment, Epson laser projectors provide the utmost support needed for a larger-than-life pregame experience, according to the two companies.
“As a company that always delivers top-of-the-line technology and reliable technical assistance, we are excited to partner with Epson on this project,” says Dan Abdalla, vice president of sales and marketing for 4Wall Entertainment. “Understanding the need to deliver that wow-factor fan experience in the city of entertainment, Epson’s laser projector technology is the topmost solution to cohesively work with oogoog productions for creating the ultimate projection mapping display.”
According to Epson, the Pro L25000U is the world’s first 3LCD projector with 25,000 lumens of color brightness and 25,000 lumens of white brightness, and provides virtually maintenance-free operation up to 20,000 hours. It is also compatible with nine different interchangeable lenses.
