BASE Hologram’s fully immersive production of live events is focused on enhancing augmented reality and hyper-reality. The new live entertainment company, recently launched by BASE Entertainment, has chosen Epson Pro L-Series laser projectors to power two productions that showcase holographic images of rock legend Roy Orbison and renowned opera sensation Maria Callas performing digitally remastered renditions of their biggest hits and interacting with onstage musicians and the audience.
“With its roots in BASE Entertainment, the premier live entertainment company behind shows like Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular and Magic Mike Live, BASE Hologram formed on the aspiration to bring back the excitement and thrill of live theatre for a new audience of all ages, constantly immersed in our technologically-advanced world,” says Marty Tudor, executive producer and CEO, BASE Hologram Productions. “In taking on this feat of bringing legends like Roy Orbison and Marie Calla to life, we required visual display technology that would allow the audience to truly feel they were experiencing these electric and spellbinding performances live.”
“Creating the magical live experience the audience craves and the true-to-life interaction with performers that could not otherwise be seen live, visual display is key,” said Gavin Downey, senior product manager, large venue projectors, Epson America, Inc.
To create groundbreaking shows like In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert and Callas in Concert, the Pro L-Series projectors support a full range of inputs, including HDBaseT, 3G-SDI, and are compatible with Crestron RoomView, AMX, Extron XTP, Control4, and Art-Net. In addition, they are compatible with nine interchangeable lenses, including the ultra short-throw ELPLX02.
