Panasonic projectors create Hungary’s largest ever 3D projection mapping

The Opening Ceremony of the FINA Budapest 2017 World Championships included the biggest projection mapping show ever made in Hungary, with 50 of Panasonic’s PT-RZ31K projectors used to achieve this incredible feat. Made in collaboration with talented artists from Maxin10sity and Bordos.ArtWorks and technically supported by Visualpower Kft, the 3D mapping show transformed Buda Castle’s facade with a visual feast of moving images.

Technical provider, Visualpower relished the challenges posed by the Buda Castle projection mapping, mounting a bank of Panasonic projectors on the opposite hillside and calculating the total light output required to majestically illuminate the castle’s façade.

Visualpower’s professional design of the project for the opening ceremony took more than six months to complete and culminated in technical implementation on a mammoth scale. A team of 50 people assembled 41 tons of scaffolding to house 50 Panasonic PT-RZ31K projectors in ten projection positions to create a lightshow of 1.5-million ANSI lumens across the 9000sqm exterior surface of the castle.
