ENTERTAINMENT
Most major entertainment projects require full scale mock-ups to prove
the concept and to assist with media development; both the National
September 11 Memorial & Museum (Page 18) and the Stonehenge project
(Page 34) are cases in point. Sometimes tests are carried out in advance of
any detailed design as feasibility studies or technology evaluations.
A recent example was to be seen in Electrosonic’s Burbank facility which
has a large fully blacked out studio for the purpose. This was an evaluation
of the latest high resolution (4K) projector from Digital Projection which
delivers 12,000 lumens and uses a laser-phosphor light source with
20,000 hour life.
