“Candylicious” holidays for Resorts World Genting (Malaysia)

Since 6 December 2013, the façade of Resorts World Genting in Malaysia has been exploding with color. The cause? The Candylicious Christmas Mega Projection; Southeast Asia’s longest-running projection mapping product, which takes center stage in a series of festivities, including Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. To realize this ambitious project, main contractor Asia Revolution Entertainment and AIMS Productions (Singapore) made use of Barco’s cutting-edge projection solutions.

As a renowned leisure resort, Resorts World Genting is committed to offering its customers an unforgettable experience. This time, however, the company outdid itself by engaging AIMS Productions to display festive video content on its main building, at a height of 6000 feet, for 80 days straight. The building will serve as a 4400-m² canvas until 27 February 2014. To create stunning and crisply defined images, AIMS installed 4 Barco HDQ-2K40 projectors and 9 HDX-W18 three-chip DLP projectors, all of whose images are processed by Barco’s ImagePRO IIs video scaler.

To realize a project of this scale, all the parties involved visited the site on numerous occasions to determine the perfect orientation and lens characteristics. Preparations took a total of three months and included working on a replica of the building to nail down the technical, physical, and creative aspects. Those interested in seeing this ambitious project in action have until 27 February to go and take a look!
