One of the most innovative techniques with a potential for expression yet to be explored is mapping through the use of projectors capable not only of illuminating objects but also of projecting images and videos.
The 3D video mapping is a projection technique that transforms any type of surface into a dynamic display. Animations and images are created through combinations of lights that are projected onto the façade of, for example, a building or onto an object such as a statue, vase or painting.
The projections mapped are very intense and engaging performances created by making video content interact with the most varied types of surfaces: from a historical/industrial building (monumental projections) to a car (car mapping) and even a single half-litre water bottle or a watch (micro mapping). It is essential that the projected content is specifically designed to interact with the geometry of the chosen surface.
When selecting the structure to be mapped, it is important to carefully consider its dimensions, types of materials and colours in order to achieve the best possible end result. All these variables are necessary to choose the range of professional projectors best suited to the situation, both in terms of power and projection format and location positioning.
A professional projector with great potential but affordable is the Space Player from Panasonic designed for museum rooms, showcases, small indoor environments and shops.
Here in the video some examples of Videomapping realised with the Space Player
