Digital Projection International 3D Mapping Demonstration

Mar 23, 2011 by Mary Pierce Bullock

3D projection mapping, according to Wikipedia, "is any method of mapping three-dimensional points to a two-dimensional plane." Using this technique, video artists are able to align projected video to buildings that they are projecting on and create amazing 3D effects, making it look as though the buildings are morphing, crumbling, burning and more.

Integrated Visions Productions, New Media Services and TSAV teamed up with Digital Projection International, a digital imaging pioneer and industry leader in ultra high performance projection systems. DPI provided one of their LIGHTNING 45-1080p 30,000 lumen projectors and all of the content was custom made by Integrated Visions Productions.

The following is an example of the phenomenal things that can be done when animators, video designers and sound engineers utilize the power of 3D projection mapping. This documentation footage is straight out of the camera with no post production or color correction. Make sure you have your volume turned up.
