The importance of silence.
The projection in blending covered the entire back wall of the auditorium (after the orchestra and the choir) plus part of the walls and side boxes, which the Slidemedia team had to mask to avoid dazzling the spectators. Between the sides and the front, an area of approximately 70 by 12 meters was covered.
A sine qua non condition was that the projectors should emit zero noise, since in this type of events the silence must be absolute. That's why Slidemedia opted for the Christie HS Series
phosphor laser models, which have a noise level of only 39 db. "The truth is that the little noise they generate exceeded the test of a public as demanding as that of the opera," says Fausto Morales.
The central projector was located in the middle of the auditorium, specifically in the cabin enabled for it, with an optical lens 2.0 and a projection distance of 41 meters. The other two side projectors were placed in the markets of the first amphitheater, where the images had the objective of creating the immersive sensation. The lenses used in this case were 1.2 and the projection distance of 38 meters.
One of the main challenges for Slidemedia was the architectural characteristics of the space: "The Auditori has very particular shapes, with plans in different orientations, large structures that support lights and audio systems," says Fausto Morales. "In addition, it has a coating on satin wood walls, we had to do a series of calculations in tests to make sure that the projection was going to be correct and have projectors of sufficient power as the Christies so that it would light up perfectly . "
For his part, Jorge Vilaplana, head of Product AV / Pro Charmex, says: "The HS series equipment is the ideal solution to achieve a high level of brightness and a low level of noise." They also provide incredible color thanks to BoldColor technology. "
Fausto Morales, from Slidemedia, also highlights the BoldColor technology incorporated in these devices, which achieves great fidelity and saturation of colors. "This technology is ideal for our type of work, since it is based on the spectacularity of the images and special effects.We create our contents mainly digitally and with 3D animation programs and motions graphics, so the saturation of the color It gives strength and fidelity to our images compared to what we see in our monitors at the time of editing, which is what interests us.
