SPLNTR An Immersive Projection Installation Showcasing Cutting Edge Technology Posted: 30/10/2019
SPLNTR and ndash; An Immersive Projection Installation Showcasing Cutting Edge Technology

Ed Shaw of NEICO and Brett Bolton create a stunning immersive projection mapping project in the heart of Las Vegas’ Art District with the help of some of the industry’s top brands.

Tucked away in the Arts District of Las Vegas, a unique installation is taking shape. Ed Shaw of NEICO and Brett Bolton are working tirelessly to create the first of its kind audio visual art installation in Las Vegas. With the support of Avolites, Group One Ltd, AG Light and Sound, X-Laser, GLP and Notch, NEICO presents SPLNTR.

Shaw has had a love for projection since working with 1024 Architecture on the BOOMBOX, one of the first world-wide touring productions of its kind. The spark for SPLNTR came earlier this year when he saw a projection project named ‘POETIC AI' by Ouchhh in Paris and decided that having never seen anything like this in Las Vegas before, now was the time to develop his own idea for an installation. After speaking to a few people, the vision became a reality and he had the go ahead with some help from Avolites. “We were looking for an alternative to a trade show that was more appealing to our clients and designers” Stephen Baird-Smith sales manager of Avolites says “At the same time Ed had the idea for an interactive installation. We’d worked with him and NEICO before on the OMNIA and JEWEL projects so we knew we would work well together. It was the perfect opportunity to bring it together”

Marco Borsato at De Kuip Stadium 2019 Posted: 21/10/2019
Marco Borsato at De Kuip Stadium 2019

Dutch megastar Marco Borsato recently played a stream of sold out record breaking shows at De Kuip stadium in The Netherlands. The set included a huge scale canvas in the form of a 1,000 square-meter LED screen. To power the impressive visuals needed for this event, Michael Al-Far of MalfMedia and Jo Pauly of Visual Solutions turned to disguise servers to provide the power. Six disguise vx 4 and four disguise gx 2 media servers played key roles in the innovative production driving the video content and facilitating real-time IMAG grading of the live feed and the integration of Notch VFX and multicam AR in the massive main screen graphics.

Marco Borsato consistently has been one of the most successful and biggest grossing artists in the Netherlands in the last twenty years. For the 2019 shows, Marco specifically requested that the starting point for the De Kuip shows would be the level of last year’s Sportpalais concerts where the team first introduced cinematographic content. “As an artist and photographer Marco felt the time had come for him to be involved in every step of this exciting project, so we had creative freedom, but he had the final say. Together with Set and Lighting Designer Carlo Zaenen we created the content book in which we outlined the look and feel of every song.” says MalfMedia founder Michael Al-Far.

“Marco Borsato was adamant that the live feed would be treated to fit better in the cinematographic content,” Michael notes. As a result, MalfMedia approached Lewis Kyle White to apply his vast experience in IMAG grading for live shows on this project.

The outdoor show posed a number of challenges: starting in daylight and transitioning to night; a canvas that was by some measures the largest screen ever used for an arena rock concert; the IMAG live feed embedded into the content and not shown on side screens; and a set list of 37 songs that all needed to have the same standard of quality.
