Simply put, projections are possible. More than 75% of theatres worldwide use front projection. This is accomplished in a few ways:
- Mount a projector above the actors and point a projector with a short-throw lens down, towards the surface and employ hardware keystone to size output correctly. Depending on the distance, this projection type can cast shadows. The best way to eliminate shadows is to place the projector as close to the surface as possible.
- Projectors with a short-throw lens work well for rear-projection, a projection style that requires at least 10′ from lens to surface.
- While a few theatres already use LED walls in their productions, we see this becoming affordable for most theatres within the next decade. Take a look at our hardware section for suggested configurations and, as always, contact us with any questions you have.
