Landmark technology for a landslide victory

On 19 December 2012, more than 30.5 million South Koreans cast their vote during the 18th South Korean presidential election. Held under a first-past-the-post system, the new president Park Geun-hye – the first female South Korean president ever – was elected with the highest number of votes in a single round.

To give thousands of inhabitants the opportunity to witness president Geun-hye’s exhilarating race to the top, Korea Broadcasting Systems (KBS) and its rental partners Prime Media and AV Korea installed two enormous screens for projection mapping of the event.

The first one was located in the center of Seoul, on the famous Gwanghawum Square and measured 80 by 50 meters. No fewer than 16 of Barco’s cutting-edge FLM-HD20 projectors and Encore video processing software provided the audience with crisp and clear images of the event. A second – smaller – screen was installed in the KBS open hall, powered by four of Barco’s ultra-bright HDQ-2K40 projectors.
