What Is Projection Mapping?

Turn Any Object, Shape, or Building Into A Surface For Projection

Projection mapping is a technology used to transform objects or physical spaces, regardless of shape or size, into a display surface for projection. The object or space to project upon can be virtually anything – from complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings, to smaller indoor objects or stages.

The technology at the center of projection mapping is a process called ‘edge-blending’ or ‘edge-butting’ where multiple projectors are coordinated to control where one beam of light ends and another begins. Edge-blended images are capable of transforming four walls into one continuous image.

There are two types of projection mapping, 2D and 3D. The difference being each is dependent on the type of surface being projected on:

At Spectrum, we are equipped with the vision technology and expertise to create an immersive experience like no other. Using powerful Christie high-definition projectors, we can design and create multimedia to be projected onto a custom made set which matches the built framework perfectly.

2D Mapping

Projection Mapping onto flat surfaces, such as screens or walls. We can use 2D mapping to create vast visual displays across whole walls, from top to bottom, within your venue.

3D Mapping

Projection Mapping onto three-dimensional objects. 3D projection is capable of creating mind-bending effects through warping content with a controlled software, as images take on physical form. We can add inanimate objects onto your stage and create illusions surrounding your guests through 3D mapping.
