3D Mapping – An Event Trend
Imagine your favourite event planner suggests using projections to decorate your next event. Doesn’t sound very innovative to you? Well, think again… in 3D! ‘3D mapping’ is a new event trend that is amazing audiences around the world.
3D mapping is a special projection technique that allows you to turn almost any surface into a dynamic video screen. Special software expertly adjusts images and videos to fit perfectly on uneven surfaces, meaning you can use 3D mapping almost anywhere. Walls, ceilings, huge buildings, even cars or furniture can become a canvas for advanced animations and graphic . The effects that can be created are quite impressive. Buildings start to move, walls crack and collapse, and different worlds are revealed right before your eyes!
Of course we don’t expect you to just take our word for it. Check out this video showing how the H&M flagship store in Amsterdam used 3D mapping to create the image of a red ribbon that was woven through the building windows. When it unwrapped, a colourful show started. Have a look, it is amazing!
Of course, planning, creating and running a 3D mapping show takes time and money, but there’s a definite pay-off in publicity. You can be sure people will posting videos and pictures of the impressive effects to their favourite social media channels, giving your event marketing efforts a wider reach and the potential for a massive impact if it starts to trend and go viral.
