Turning Buckingham Palace into an ever-changing backdrop
“Everything about this show had been planned to upstage its predecessor, from the stage to the dazzling mapped projections that turned the palace itself into an ever-changing backdrop. The staging was actually more ambitious and cutting edge than the line-up”, wrote the Telegraph in its review of the Diamond Jubilee Concert. The projection mapping onto the Palace was indeed one of the highlights of the concert organized to celebrate the 60th Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.
Barco Partner XL Video supplied a total of 36 Barco FLM HD 20K projectors arranged in six stacks of six and 12 Barco Image Pro servers, while D3 Technologies took care of the actual video mapping and playback of video on the Palace’s front façade. Barco`s FLM HD20 is an ultra-bright, durable projector with full HD picture-in-picture capabilities, ideal for large-venue events that want to create a ‘waw’ effect, like the concert outside Buckingham Palace.
