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.

Identiverse 2018

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!”’

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.
