Virtual Bas-Relief Sculpture at the security zone
Being heavily dependent on ambient lighting, the final product of this piece was based largely on experience, as the lights had not been fully installed during the testing process. However, the team managed to pull it off perfectly.
“We’re not in this business because it’s easy,” said Sakchin. “We kept at it until we got it right, and it really paid off.”
More pixels than your 4k TV – and Bigger, too
With 10 times more pixels (8 220 672 pixels, to be exact) than an average HD display on such a large scale, resolution and quality definitely becomes a challenge.
“We want to make sure the visuals look great no matter how close visitors get,” said Sakchin.
“Because each playback machine can only handle so many pixels, we cut our visual content into pieces, and then reconnect it all on-site using special software and hardware. It’s a painstaking process, and requires incredible attention to detail.”
To produce this million-pixel piece with a 10k resolution when computers are so much smaller, the content had to be continuously edited and constantly blown up, to catch any possible imperfections.
