Of course, ambitious projects like these are not without their challenges. Gavin Culbertson, IT & AV Administrator for the Gardens, explains: “The projection canvas absorbed a great deal of light, so we needed a projector with a lot of brightness. Plus, since a tree was obstructing the window, we had to position it very close up, requiring an ultra-short throw lens. The F50 projector with EN-57 lens was perfect for our needs!”
As part of an ongoing grant, the Gardens also present a weather display in the Science Pyramid, utilizing a Barco projector to showcase science research in the Colorado region.
Denver Botanic Gardens strives to entertain and delight while spreading the collective wisdom of the Gardens through outreach, collaboration and education. Its conservation programs play a major role in saving species and protecting natural habitats for future generations.
