More about Multimedia and Video Mapping Systems

Video mapping makes use of video projectors to display images on the surface of 3D objects. The object that is projected onto can be as large as the side of a mountain or the facade of a tall building, or as small as a picture frame. This technology frees the images from the 2D confines of the monitor and brings them to life in 3D. In reality, at the core of video mapping is the image processing that gives the images designed in the computer the ability to cover surfaces of any shape and form. In order to make an image as big as we like, we need to use an advanced network of several projectors whose synchronized projections will bathe the entire surface of the object in imagery.

Steps in designing and implementing a video mapping project

Parameters which contribute to the cost of video mapping

Many factors need to be taken into account when estimating the cost of a video mapping project:

The length of time determines if equipment needs to be bought or rented and therefore affects the final cost.

The size of the projection surface is often the most important factor in determining the cost of a project. The biggest portion of costs usually goes towards hardware (including the projectors, networking equipment and so on.) and the type and number of projectors is defined by the size of the projection surface.

Area isn’t the only thing that matters here, the ratio of length to width is also important. For example, 100 square meters can be a surface that’s 25 meters wide and 4 meters long, or 10 meters wide and 10 meters long. Two different systems need to be used in either of these situations.

The closer the color of the surface is to being white, the better the imagery will reflect off of it. Therefore, systems with higher light intensity need to be used in order to compensate for darker colored surfaces. This is while, some colors might not show well on dark backgrounds and this needs to be taken into account when designing the content.

If it’s possible to install a white cover over these dark surfaces, the image quality can be increased significantly.

The content can be comprised of 2D animations, 3D animations, live action videos, or a combination of them all. Each of these types of content have different costs. After the type of graphics has been settled on, the length of the content becomes important because the cost is usually calculated by the second or minute.

In creating audio content, we can compose new music, make use of narration in Farsi or other languages, or select from prerecorded music, all of which will affect the final cost.

The ideal conditions for a video mapping display is in complete darkness, the higher the levels of ambient light at the location, the brighter (and more expensive) the projectors needed to compensate for the ambient light.

In addition to light pollution, fog and rain can also have a negative effect on image quality.

Special lenses have to be used if the projectors need to be place extremely close or extremely far from the display surface, and this can factor into the cost of the project.

One factor which affects both the cost and the quality of a project is the amount of time available to us. The closer this time span is to the standard time needed for designing and producing content, the lower the cost and the higher the quality.

The standard required time varies for different projects but it’s usually between 1.5 and three months.
