MBox Projects On Moving Canvas For Mercedes Launch

MBox Projects On Moving Canvas For Mercedes Launch

For the world premiere of the 2014 Mercedes V-Class in Munich, Mbox used CAST BlackTrax realtime tracking to project visual designs onto a moving canvas. Working with OSK Agency, Mbox created a dynamic show where humans interact with technology in realtime during a choreographed dance where they constantly move modular props, such as cubes, triangles, and vertical panels, onto which the visuals are projected.  

Mbox used 4x Full HD back projection on the 65' wide center stage screen, and 5x Full HD projection on the 20 modular props that were 3D-tracked with a customized BlackTrax tracking system in combination with the V4-based Mbox media server. 

Gil Densham, President, CAST Group and Ash Nehru, Director of Software, d3 Technologies, sponsors of the Projection Master Classes.

Lighting design was by Nik Evers and choreography by Alex Burgos. Sabine Retschitzegger was concept director, and Helmut Breineder and Armin Keplinger the art directors.

CAST Group's president, Gil Densham will speak on the Marvel Universe Live panel at the 2014 Projection Master Classes, November 19-20, during LDI at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Register today!
