Niubei Mountain, situated in Yingjing County, Ya'an, Sichuan Province, China, rises to an altitude of 3,666 meters above sea level Renowned as the "largest panoramic sightseeing platform of China," its lofty vantage point provides vistas of mountains, starry skies, and ocean-like clouds.
On February 16, 2023, The North Face × CLOT unveiled their joint spring and summer series here. Barco projectors turned this locale into a canvas for a natural projection mapping spectacle amidst the grandeur of mountainous scenery.
The selected projection mapping site, nestled in a frigid mountainous region, presented significant challenges in terms of projector selection and deployment under harsh conditions of snow and high altitudes. The reflective nature of heavy snow, unpredictable snow melting, and temperature shifts posed rigorous demands on the projector's performance.
Additionally, surmounting the rugged terrain to achieve optimal creative visual effects over a 100-square-meter projection area required projectors with exceptional imaging capabilities.
Addressing the intricate installation, calibration, and imaging requisites for projecting onto the snow mountain, Barco's professional team supplied 8 UDX-W40 projectors for this mapping endeavor. With a brightness of 40,000 lumens, the Barco UDX-W40 projectors delivered clear and vibrant images, adapting seamlessly to the long-range and wide projection area.
Moreover, the UDX series projectors feature three-chip DLP technology and high-contrast optics, excelling in color accuracy and stability, to ensure the flawless presentation of visual effects and creativity.
Furthermore, the robust Barco UDX projectors are designed with a sturdy aluminum alloy frame, modular internal design, and high-precision components , which enables them to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, shattering the environmental limitationsof this project.
Guided by Barco's adept team, the eight UDX-W40 projectors showcased exceptional performance within the challenging setting. Featuring a compact design, the UDX-W40 projector outshines others of similar brightness, supporting flexible 360° installation, allowing technicians to deploy it flexibly and conquer mounting challenges. The UDX series projectors are celebrated for their longevity and reliability, curbing downtime stemming from environmental factors and saving significant labor and time expenses. With its excellent color performance, the UDX series projectors breathed life into the snowy mountain backdrop, offering a spellbinding visual feast that revived nature's hues on a snow-draped canvas. Through flawless execution of creativity and color aesthetics, the UDX-W40 projectors delivered an awe-inspiring spectacle to the audience.
