Barco projectors were used to break the Guinness World Records™ Title for Largest Projected Videogame Display, played live online, no less.
The activation, produced by LA-based experiential marketing agency, BeCore Inc., involved snowboarder Grant Giller playing Xbox’s Destiny 2: Beyond Light. The complex install was done by 3D projection mapping powerhouse PaintScaping. The game size was 19,090 sqft (180.15ft x 105.97ft) and was projected at the top of Copper Mountain, in Colorado, at an altitude of 11,000 ft – one of the highest elevation projections ever produced. Three Barco UDX-4K40 Flex projectors – provided by rental expert Rentex – were used to map the mountain.
“It was a treat to work with the Barco UDX-4K40 projectors for this super-cool project,” says Philippe Bergeron, President of PaintScaping. “We knew that for a project like this, we would need reliability, low latency, and high-brightness – which is why we turned to Barco UDX-4K40 projectors.” PaintScaping gained notoriety this summer by producing the world’s first 3D mapping on an operational rocket, at Cape Canaveral.
