The content focused on the building itself, highlighting its architectural details
Romania - With a floor surface of 350,000 sq.m, the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania, is the second world's largest administrative building. To celebrate the 555th anniversary of the capital city, the city cultural centre mesmerised a crowd of 100,000 with the world's largest videomapping projection ever made on an administrative building, using over 100 digital projectors.

Projection mapping specialist Maxin10sity was called in by local rental stager 360 Revolution to handle the colossal task of creating a videomapping as well as organising all content, acting as a curator for this artistic performance.

Each animation was a symbolic 5'55'', and boasted a staggering 23,000 sqm projection area. "For a project of this scale, 8K resolution quickly became obvious. We wanted the audience to experience this wow factor while at the same time create some emotion," comments András Sass, Maxin10sity's art director, who was in charge of developing the content with his colleague László Czigány. "Working with this resolution allowed us to dramatically improve the rendering and deliver very sharp images.

"We really pushed the software to the limit. We think it is the first time that a projection mapping has ever been carried out in such detail. For example, we created a rendering with millions of particles that would agglomerate to shape the Parliament, before being blown by the wind the next second to create other forms."

The content focused on the building itself, highlighting its architectural details, and sublimating the grandiose nature of the Parliament. To support the images, Maxin10sity worked with Spanish songwriter and producer Ivan Torrent.

All the artists invited were extremely satisfied with Maxin10sity's project management. Damien Fontaine, who represented France, commented, "The relationship with Maxin10sity was very professional, with a technical and artistic approach that was in line with the scale of the event. "

360 Revolution sourced no fewer than 104 Panasonic PT-DZ21K 3 chip DLP projectors from LANG AG, for a total output of over 2m lumens. Boasting 20,000 lumens, with a contrast ratio of 10.000:1 and a 1920x1200 resolution (WUXGA), the PT-DZ21K reproduced razor-sharp and lifelike images on the façade. All projectors were controlled by five Pandora Box QUAD Server systems from Coolux.
