Modulo Pi Media Servers For Projection Mapping At San Francisco City Hall

Immersive, a cutting-edge production company, achieved a dazzling projection mapping for the 86th San Francisco Ballet Opening Night Gala. Hosted underneath the dome at San Francisco City Hall, the projection mapping relied upon Modulo Kinetic, a fully-integrated media server solution designed by Modulo Pi.

To project on the 50’x70’ arch of the Rotunda, Immersive made a two-projector blend using Christie Boxer 30K video-projectors.
Immersive chose the Modulo Kinetic media server solution to host media and power the projection mapping.
“Projection mapping is growing in popularity in the United States, and a media server like Modulo Kinetic makes it more affordable, accessible, and executable” says Sean Mason, Founder & CEO of Immersive.

Looking to perfectly map out the intricate details of the San Francisco City Hall architecture, Immersive could rely on Modulo Kinetic’s advanced capabilities, such as the XMap feature. 
Show study and simulation were performed in Modulo Kinetic prior to the event: “The ability to build the show before arriving at show site is incredibly valuable” highlights Mason. “When we arrive to show site, all we have to do is plug in projectors and map the surface. This install took less than 2 hours to execute on site.”
