Farnborough Airshow



GKN Aerospace soars to new heights at this year's Farnborough International Airshow with a spectacular projection mapping.

d3's powerful Projector Simulation toolkit enabled Sensel to map the scale aeroplane, which spanned five metres from nose to tail. Brilliant features included Quick Cal and Dynamic Blend, helping to quickly align and balance nine projectors without unduly warping the outputs. Drive Productions created the showreel played back from one d3 4x4pro server. The audience, only feet away, viewed cinematic environments from magnificent cloudscapes to magnified blueprints. Computer generated effects were pre-rendered and, in real-time, d3 mapped content from the audience viewpoint to the projector outputs.
