The show organizers had used Barcoprojectors before and, thanks to the good experience and amazing results, onceagain looked to Barco when preparing for the Taiyuan mapping show. A grand totalof 94 Barco UDX-W32 projectors, jointly presented a brilliant city lightingshow: 66 projectors for the Shanxi Grand Theatre, 12 for the Shanxi Science andTechnology Museum and 16 for the Taiyuan Art Museum. Which makes it the largestfixed deployment of Barco projectors in China so far.


Because of the irregular exteriorsurfaces of the modern buildings, the Taiyuan project faced many challenges tocorrectly project the images on the architectural canvases. However the newgeneration of Barco laser projectors, with their multi-point warping correctionand calibration software, effectively and accurately solved the technical problemsof this building projection mapping project. The Barco Pulse projectionsoftware platform can realize real-time multi-point complex geometric correction,which reduces setup time and enhances results for the visual experience.


Not only that, the Barco UDX-W32 laser projector has a constant light output function with extremely gooduniformity. So when multiple projectors are used at the same time, maintainingthe same brightness and color can be achieved without the need for complexcolor correction. Barco UDX projectors reduce the difficulty of buildingprojection, and achieve spectacular results for the enjoyment of visitingcrowds.


A successful light and shadow showof this size takes a lot of time, personnel and energy to prepare. Theorganizers of the Taiyuan project had to have everything installed, calibratedand functioning within 20 days, so the difficulty of achieving that with 94projectors on complex buildings can only be imagined. But all the hard work,and the choice of Barco projectors, paid off, and Taiyuan citizens were able toenjoy the wonderful lighting show during the New Year festivities.


Thanks to the combination of Barco'shigh-quality products, expert engineers, and all functional departments workingovertime, the setup was complete in just 15 days! Ultimately, all expectations wereexceeded as people walking in Changfeng Square enjoyed the brilliant andamazing projection mapping on the buildings. This is the quality of Barco! Thespeed of Barco!
