In October 2019, the AV industry gathered at a new venue, Battersea Evolution, for the AV Awards to celebrate the industry’s achievements over the past 12 months.
The theme for this year’s AV Magazine awards ‘The Future is AV’. As headline sponsors, Epson wanted to work with their key partners to create an unforgettable impact enabling them to show off the capabilities of their impressive projection portfolio, and to do this they turned to Motion Mapping and PSCo for support.
Motion Mapping designed a unique and impressive array of projection set-pieces, featuring a giant projection-mapped AV Awards logo in vivid colours (powered by a combination of EB-L1755U projectors with ELPLX02 ultra-short-throw lenses, and LightScene EV-105 spotlight projectors) demonstrating the impressive versatility, throw capabilities, brightness and colour offered by all of the Epson professional projectors. Also featured above the bar itself was a circular 3D-effect projection ‘sphere’ on a round mapped projection screen. This suspended feature was powered by the popular EB-L1755U 15,000 lumens models rigged either side – projectors particularly suitable for such an application due to their compact size, high brightness and flexible lens range to suit, with ELPLW05 wide zoom lenses in this case.
As the 1,400 guests admired these displays in the bar area, they were treated to a visual spectacular as a 20 metre by 5 metre holo-gauze dropped from the ceiling following a countdown to reveal the main stage and dining area. This magnificent piece of projection mapping was accomplished using three Epson EB-L25000U projectors with ELPLU05 short throw lenses. “We’ve worked with Epson from the start, their projectors offer us the versatility and power needed to create show-stopping visual experiences and this installation is up there with our favourites to date.” Commented Stuart Harris | Motion Mapping.
Commenting on the projection mapping, Rachael Hamilton, Brand Director at AV Magazine added, “The visual impact of the holo-gauze dropping and revealing the stage was spectacular, there was an audible gasp in the room, we couldn’t have asked for a better start to the show”.
“The stunning impact of the Epson projection displays at the AV Awards this year really underlines the continuing relevance of projection in the busy world of AV technologies – and why Epson are the number 1 choice for PSCo and for AV / live events and rental companies. No other brand can offer the price performance, wide portfolio and exceptional visual impact!” Tom Allott | PSCo.
After a hugely successful evening, Paul Wilson, Product Manager at Epson UK summed up the event. “We always look forward to the AV Awards, so it was a real delight to see Epson projector technology used so widely on the evening. It was a great team effort, and we thank both PSCo and Motion Mapping for their collaboration on this ambitious project.”
As technology sponsors, PSCo were proud to provide Epson & Motion Mapping with several of the projectors & lenses used for the awards. The full range of Epson rental projectors, including the Epson LightScene EV-105, EB-L1755U and EB-L25000U are available to see on display at the Experience Centre in PSCo’s new Innovation House facility (Bracknell, Berkshire).
