Open Doors day – Skynight

Skynight – Open Doors Open day 2018

April 2018, Geneva – Switzerland


For it’s open doors day, Skynight in collaboration with Key Labs, created a racetrack projected on the floor of it’s warehouse, with real remote-control cars racing onto it.
To make the experience close to video games, the cars would flash in red every time they were out of the track and particles were generated in real time to create exhaust fumes behind the vehicles.
A smaller 2D version of the racetrack was displayed on a TV screen, giving information about the real-time position of each car and the number of laps it had completed.

This was all made possible thanks to BlackTrax technology to track the cars in real-time, and Modulo Kinetic using the tracking information to generate real-time particules and other projection effects on the moving cars.

CGR Cinémas Paris Lilas (Jocelyn Bouyssy) : « 1 million d’euros pour une salle premium immersive ICE »

Par Cine.Tv.Industry

Jocelyn Bouyssy, le directeur général du groupe CGR – premier circuit cinématographique en France avec 73 cinémas – a inauguré le 20 juin dernier en présence de nombreux invités le nouveau complexe cinéma du groupe CGR à la Porte des Lilas à Paris. Un cinéma de 7 salles rebaptisé CGR Paris Lilas, suite au rachat du groupe Cap’Ciné en novembre 2017.

L’ensemble du lieu, entièrement rénové et repensé, dispose d’une salle Premium particulière (la n°4) baptisée ICE (Immersive Cinema Experience) qui se distingue des autres par son côté immersif. C’est la 19ème salle CGR en France à disposer de ce procédé (une exclusivité CGR Cinémas) qui associe qualité visuelle, sonore et confort du spectateur (taille et espacement des sièges inclinables, gradinnage rehaussé…) En plus d’une excellence sonore qui « enveloppe » le spectateur (Dolby Atmos qui met à contribution 53 haut-parleurs dont certains au plafond) et d’une qualité visuelle lumineuse et cristalline (projecteur laser 4K Christie 9P à 60K lumens, 14 pieds-Lambert pour la 2D et 7fL en 3D), la salle dispose de 12 panneaux Led latéraux Philips (technologie LightVibes, propriété de CGR suite à son rachat à Philips) qui prolongent sur les côtés l’environnement sensoriel de l’écran principal et plonge le spectateur dans l’action.

« Il faut compter 1 million d’euros d’investissement pour une salle ICE LightVibes, explique Jocelyn Bouyssy, Dg du groupe CGR. Luc Besson a été le premier à nous faire confiance sur son film Valérian ; notre laboratoire de post-production à La Rochelle se charge d’incorporer la technologie LightVibes aux copies numériques. Pour des raisons de sécurité, c’est un véritable bunker ; je n’ai moi-même pas le droit d’y pénétrer ! » Depuis la sortie du film de Besson, plusieurs studios américains ont fait confiance à Jocelyn Bouyssy et à son concept ICE LightVibes dont Warner, Sony, Universal, Disney Nature… et prochainement Paramount (en discussion). Un succès qui fait qu’aujourd’hui CGR propose sa technologie à d’autres exploitants sans demander de royalties. A charge pour eux d’adapter leurs salles à ce label et son haut standard de qualité. Certains films diffusés dans la salle ICE ne bénéficient pas du format LightVibes – les spectateurs en sont avertis avant d’acheter leur billet – Ils peuvent malgré tout apprécier les bandes-annonces formatées ainsi. CGR espère pouvoir sortir chaque année une vingtaine de films en immersion sensorielle LightVibes.

Le spectateur bénéficie d’un accueil ICE privilégié dès le hall du cinéma. Grâce aux fauteuils numérotés, il peut réserver la place de son choix, en ligne ou directement au cinéma. Le prix des billets reste raisonnable pour cette salle premium : 15€ en plein tarif ; 11€ tarif réduit pour les moins de 26 ans ; et 8€ en matinée et pour les enfants toute la journée. Un véritable succès pour CGR qui proposera 7 nouvelles salles ICE d’ici la fin de l’année.

Identiverse 2018

Par yannickkohn


Identiverse 2018

June 2018, Boston, MA – USA


Identiverse, formerly known as The Cloud identity Summit, is the world’s largest identity conference.
Featuring over 200 sessions and masterclasses, Identiverse offers exhibits and presentations from more than 50 vendors.
This includes presentations from some of the world’s most influential voices in digital identity, financial services, privacy, healthcare, security, IoT, mobile, architecture and more.
This corporate event is hosted by Ping Identity Corporation, a provider of cyber security solutions to Fortune 100 companies globally.

The event takes place in a different city in June every year. Identiverse2018 edition was held in Boston, at the Hynes Convention Center.
The main stage this year was in the Grand Ballroom, a 24,500 square foot space. In addition to the main stage, there were also 7 breakout rooms and an expo stage.
All AV elements including projection, sound, lighting, cameras, record decks, live streaming, content creation (i.e. motion graphics and projection video elements)
and all preproduction design and rendering were provided by Immersive, a cutting-edge production company based in San Fransisco. For the projection mapping both on the ceiling as well as the main stage, Immersive chose Modulo PI solutions to control the 12 projectors they required.

Modulo Kinetic was hosting the ceiling projection.
During the preproduction phase, Modulo Kinetic 3D preview allowed Immersive to test the accuracy of their projectors placement, as Sean Mason, Immersive CEO , explains :
“One challenge we faced was part of the ceiling projection was being blocked by the stage set. In the Kinetic projection study, we realized that the center stage arch would be blocking two of the projectors.
Not only did Kinetic make us aware of the issue, it also helped solving it, all before getting on show site : through the Kinetic Render Surface interface, we were able to send content from a different projector to fill in the blocked area. Without Kinetic, this fix would not have been possible, and we would not have been able to fill in the shadow. Kinetic truly saved the day! »
Once on site, Immersive made the best of some other Modulo PI exclusive features during set up, like the Remote Warp functionality to adjust the projection from any location in the Grand Ballroom: “The Remote Warp is extremely helpful to fine tune the mapping from anywhere in the room. It allows us to get up right next to the projection and adjust the warp/blend to achieve a perfect mapping” adds Mason.

Immersive also enjoyed The User Panel, another exclusive modulo PI feature. It was used to write cues, trigger several simultaneous tasks and control all Modulo Pi media servers “We love the Panel. It was absolutely necessary to control the show because the server hosting the central stage projection was backstage while another one was in the Front of House. Thanks to the Panel, we were controlling them both while sitting in the audience during the show.” adds Mason.
Sean Mason concludes : “Modulo Kinetic is definitely more powerful than any server we’ve used. Overall, every Modulo Pi product has been amazing to use and extremely powerful. The Modulo team has been incredible to work with, very supportive, quick to respond to questions and a wonderful partner to have. We are looking forward to many more Modulo Pi installations!”’

About Immersive:
Immersive is a cutting-edge company that creates dynamic environments for events. They specialize in corporate audio visual (AV), projection mapping, custom content creation, architectural projection mapping, sculptural projector mapping, lighting, audio, staging and rigging. Last year alone, Immersive executed over 180 events in the US. The company was founded in 2012 by Sean Mason. Some of their most iconic work are architectural projections whether on building facades and interior architecture such as The Old Mint in San Francisco, San Francisco City Hall, and Samsung Semiconductor HQ in Santa Clara.

Maestro – Sharjah Light Festival 2017

Par Eva Fechten

For a second year in a row, we were invited by Nomada to participate at the Sharjah Light Festival 2017.
For this occasion we introduced Maestro, a new interactive video mapping, controlled by the user through a futuristic illuminated console.

The installation was set up on a half kilometer long building with 19 video projectors of 20,000 lumens and 8 sky-tracers.
The users were offered to choose between three original Mappings: SAND, MOSAIC and ORGAN.

To complete this creative and technological challenge, Tigrelab teamed up with great talents: Hand Coded was in charge of the generative visuals and sounds, our technological partners ProtoPixel took care of the creative technology and the lighting control, Thomas Aussenac from SoundBox created the Music and Sound Design, and Joan Molins and Roger Amat were in charge of the Motion Design and Animation.

This project has been rewarded during the Sharjah Light Festival 2017 for “Best Installation”.

Chine : premier cinéma équipé en EclairColor HDR avec l’exploitant Bestar Cinemas et l’intégrateur Great Ocean

Par Cine.Tv.Industry
  • Premier film chinois mastérisé au format EclairColor High Dynamic Range par Eclair

Le Groupe Ymagis, spécialiste des technologies numériques pour l’industrie du cinéma, et l’intégrateur Chinois Great Ocean annoncent le lancement de la première salle de cinéma en EclairColor HDR (High Dynamic Range) dans la ville de RuiAn avec l’exploitant Bestar Cinemas. Au sein du tout nouveau multiplexe de Bestar Cinemas, la technologie EclairColor est au cœur du dispositif Premium Large Format (PLF) baptisé « STARX » et qui est équipé d’un écran de 22 mètres de base, de 600 fauteuils et d’un système de projection quad SRX-R515QS de chez Sony Digital Cinema.

Ymagis_EclairColor_BestarCinemas Lite(4)

« Nous sommes particulièrement heureux de pouvoir présenter pour la toute première fois en Chine cette nouvelle technologie HDR, au sein de notre nouveau multiplexe, situé dans le centre commercial Wuyue à RuiAn« , commente Jiang Yuanxin, Directeur Général Adjoint de Shanghai Bestar Cinemas Management Co. « EclairColor combiné à Sony délivre une qualité d’image supérieure qui apporte encore plus d’émotions à l’écran, améliorant ainsi de façon significative le taux de satisfaction de nos spectateurs. Dans le cadre de notre plan de développement, nous souhaitons ouvrir en Chine d’ici 2021, 50 salles STARX PLF équipées de la technologie EclairColor au sein de nos actuels et futurs cinémas. »

Ymagis_EclairColor_BestarCinemas Lite(1)

Pour Zhang Liang, Directeur Technique de l’intégrateur Chinois Great Ocean, « la collaboration avec les équipes d’EclairColor s’est parfaitement bien déroulée lors de l’installation de notre premier site à RuiAn. La palette de couleurs qu’apporte EclairColor est beaucoup plus riche et les nuances sont très fines permettant d’obtenir à l’écran de vrais couleurs noires, comme cela a été démontré lors de la projection du film Chinois Dying to Survive en EclairColor. Tous les cinémas, quelle que soit la taille des écrans, peuvent s’équiper en EclairColor HDR. Par ailleurs, le système de projection Sony Digital Cinema 4K peut être utilisé par les exploitants pour projeter aussi bien les contenus masterisés en EclairColor que les contenus au format habituel (« DCI »). »

Ymagis_EclairColor_BestarCinemas Lite(2)

« Nous espérons pouvoir annoncer dans les prochaines semaines de nouvelles installations en EclairColor grâce à notre premier site témoin à RuiAn avec notre partenaire Great Ocean« , déclare Simon Eyriès, Chef de projet EclairColor. « L’arrivée d’EclairColor en Chine est une étape clef pour les cinéastes et les exploitants chinois qui ont désormais accès à une technologie HDR disponible, efficace et économique. A cette occasion, Eclair (le pôle d’activités contenus du Groupe Ymagis) a produit le premier DCP EclairColor d’un long-métrage produit et filmé en Chine Dying to Survive, réalisé par Wen Muye«

Sonic Acts

Par Nina Verhagen

sonic-acts-2-2018AMSTERDAM, 21-24 February 2019

Sonic Acts was founded in 1994. Over the years, it has established itself as a thematic festival with a strong focus on contemporary and historical developments at the intersections of art, technology, music, and science.

Each festival edition explores the chosen theme by means of an international conference, a wide range of concerts and performances, exhibitions and screenings, and embraces a broad spectrum of fields, practices, and disciplines.

Sonic Acts has developed into an organization for the research, development, and production of works at the intersection of art, science, and theory. It also commissions and co-produces new works, often in collaboration with international festivals, arts organizations, funders, and other partners.

Recent projects include the three-year art, research & commissioning project Dark Ecology, predominantly taking place in the Arctic region, and its globally touring programme Vertical Cinema.

Transmediale

Par Marco Savo

BERLIN, 28 January – 01 February 2020

Transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture, and technology. It considers technology as being more than the digital world and the cultural as being more than what emerges from within institutionalized fields of production.

The formats of the festival change from year to year as Transmediale tries to foreground the intrinsic link between trans-disciplinary thinking and cultural practice.

Inspired by the pre-Internet idea of networkstransmediale 2020 – End to End focuses on both forgotten and potential futures with and without networks. Leaving behind a decade marked by a backlash against the Internet and the network society, transmediale aims at a comprehensive re-evaluation of networks and their limits. The exhibitions runs until the 1st of March.

The exhibition and the conference program is curated by artistic director Kristoffer Gansing with supporting advice from Clemens Apprich, Daphne Dragona, Geert Lovink, and Florian Wüst, all of whom will also be responsible for different program items.

Cloudbees / Jenkins World – 2018

Par yannickkohn


Cloudbees / Jenkins World – 2018

Sept 2018, San Fransisco, CA, USA – Oct 2018, Nice, France


For its 2018 Jenkins World Tour, CloudBees gathered a large community of developers from all
over the globe in two locations: San Francisco (USA) in September, and Nice (France) in October.
For these major rendezvous bringing together 2,500 attendees, a wide and neat video projection
with mapping was created using Modulo Kinetic, a powerful video solution by Modulo Pi.

Immersive, a cutting-edge production company based in San Francisco, was in charge of the
entire show for the 2018 Jenkins World Tour in the United States, and France.
The main stage used for keynotes consisted in two wide screens, plus a third screen with a globe
shape in front of them.

In San Francisco, 5 x Christie Boxer 30K were installed to feed the screens on a 135 feet (41
meters) stage. To deal with the challenges of this show, Sean Mason, Founder and CEO of
Immersive, decided to opt for the Modulo Kinetic media server solution: “We work with Modulo
Pi’s systems for all our projector mappings now. Modulo Kinetic is bulletproof, powerful, and
versatile. It has everything in it.”

For both events, Modulo Kinetic was used in a configuration with two Kinetic Vnode servers, both
controlled through one Kinetic Designer. The show was designed to offer maximum flexibility,
with any source that could be routed to any location. Four opening videos were
played, composed of two videos on the side screens and one on the front globe, playing
simultaneously. Immersive teams could also route the PowerPoint presentations on the walls, or
on the globe.

Immersive worked in close collaboration with CGI Interactive, the company in charge of creating
the introduction videos and PowerPoint presentations for the event. Creative teams developed all
content on a template created by Immersive.

An Ascender 32 mixer by Analog Way was in line to do all the switching for the 6 x MacBook and 6
x PCs. The outputs of the Ascender 32 were sent to the Kinetic Vnode servers in charge of playing
the content for stage left and stage right.
Sources also included 2 x cameras for IMAG, and an SDI matrix recording the laptops, mixer, and
camera feeds sent to Modulo Kinetic.

Facing the challenge of adapting the show made in San Francisco to a new venue in France, Sean
Mason and his teams could rely on Modulo Kinetic’s powerful 3D engine for show simulation: “We
were coming to a place that that we’ve never been to before. You have a floor plan and that’s it.
For this reason, we 3D modeled the entire space, and could place our projectors, making sure we
would have the correct coverage.”

The simulation study also turned out to be helpful to project on the globe screen: “In this case,
Modulo Kinetic saved us because if we shot straight on, then the globe got a big shadow. In the
projection study, we had to move the projectors all the way to the side and shoot at an angle to get
behind the globe.”

The stage in Nice being 85 feet (25 meters), Immersive had to redesign part of the show and adapt
the content. The simulation done using Modulo Kinetic also helped select 7 x Barco 30K
projectors. Sean Mason explains: “Projection study is something we always had trouble with in
the past. There’s plenty of time when we’ve done it with other software. It looks good in the
software, but when you get to the site, it’s just not working. This is not the case with Modulo
Kinetic. It includes a library with exact specifications for every projector. Even the lens choice is
accurate. We used to bring two sets of lenses, but now we don’t have to do that anymore. It actually
saves a lot of money.”

Warping and mapping over the globe were done on site, using Modulo Kinetic’s mobile remote
application. “Warp remote is a great attribute, says Mason. Thanks to it, we’re able to get right
next to the projection, and do all the fine-tuning.”
The multi-user remote control software helped save time by working simultaneously on warping
and show encoding.

All show encoding and control was done through Kinetic Designer. Around 40 tasks were created
for the show, as well as custom panels using the system’s UI Designer.

Thanks to the panels, all tasks could be triggered live using Modulo Kinetic’s iPad application.
Creating tasks through Modulo Kinetic allowed to easily deal with last minute changes in the
show, being able to add anything, programming fade outs or loops in the timeline,… “Modulo
Kinetic’s software is very easy to use. It’s very fast to write your cues and make your interface for
the iPad”.

The event that was Immersive’s first international show was a success. The company will work
on the 2019 Jenkins World Tour that will be held in San Francisco and Lisbon next year.

Liquid Architecture: Why listen to plants?

Par Nina Verhagen

MELBOURNE, 22 November – 08 December 2018

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organization for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.

For this program, they are collaborating with artists who work at the intersection of theory and live performance. These artists use various strategies to extend vegetal thinking into sound and listening, from guided walks, talks, readings and lecture performances to experimental music, installation, herbalist pedagogy, and folk songs.

This program, Why Listen, proceeds from these questions as it attempts to open up the act of listening in social, scientific and political space. It is an inquiry into both the consensus constructing communication—and, indeed, creating communicators—and an attentiveness to the vitality of voices beyond the conceptual.

Microwave Festival

Par Nina Verhagen

HONG KONG

Microwave Festival began in 1996 as an annual video art festival of the local video art institution Videotage. As technology progressed and became more accessible, video art slowly evolved to involve other media; thus Microwave began to embrace the wider range of new media art. As the first and only art festival in Hong Kong dedicated to new media art, Microwave has steadily grown into a well-established festival that brings cutting-edge works to provoke thought in the technological hub every year.

In its 10th anniversary, Microwave Festival celebrated by becoming an independent organization, completed with a re-branding by design partner Milkxhake and a strengthened curatorial and working team. Microwave then continues the hard work to inspire Hong Kong and the rest of the world with pioneering media artworks selected to suit themes relevant to the society today, while also avidly supporting the exchange and dialogue between artists, professionals, and the general public.

They envision that through the Microwave network, Hong Kong artists will be introduced to international institutions and curators, working as a platform and gateway for them to develop their art and skills. Apart from the grand annual festival, Microwave also endeavors to nurture a rising local new media arts community, organizing various programmes such as educational workshops, seminars, forums, and exhibitions.

FOTONICA

Par Nina Verhagen

(edited 29.11.19 by Marta Minguell)

ROMA 29 November – 07 December

FOTONICA 3rd edition launches with new audiovisual projects of italian-based and international artists.

FOTONICA from photon, historically as light, from Greek φωτός (photòs), is a FREE festival that investigates art forms related to the light element, in particular, digital light. PHOTONICA wants to be a new project in a field where Rome has always been a reference, but today it suffers from the lack of an international event: the Audio Visual Arts.
