NZ’s largest theme park Rainbows End, achieves quality projection entertainment in the sunlight outdoors with an ICE AV Digital Daytime screen.

Projectors have made incredible improvements over the last 20 years. Where would we be without them? They are used in every conceivable display use and for entertaining audiences. However there is one brick wall challenging situation that stumps most people using a projector in a well lit environment.

Have you ever tried to use a projector and screen in a very bright area like a public stage. Rainbows End theme fun park in Auckland tried to do this using a matt white standard screen but were never able to achieve a viewable image – unless they waited till night time when every one had left. With a constrained budget our LED screen solutions were out of the question. We solved their display challenge easily for daytime use with one of our 92 inch Digital Daytime DDT Lens screens and an Optoma 5,000 ANSI projector. Needless to say they were totally impressed and have now mounted a system on the public performance stage for use during the day. It was the first time they had seen a projected image so bright with a standard affordable projector.

The screen is so bright when a standard camera setting is used it burns out the image in this environment as the environmental brightness compared to the screen brightness is so dramatically different.

Here we can see a view from the stage that faces out to a well lit covered area.

You can visit the virtual view site to explore the environment on this link.

Before the installation the performing talent had no supporting screen when they performed for audiences.

3D PROJECTION

ICE 3D Projectors screens is a unique screen that has huge reflection efficiency with the ability to dramatically reduce the effect of ambient light and at the same time creates the perfect surface for 3D projection with the room lights on.

If you have an environment where you often hear yourself grumbling that you wished the image was a lot brighter, then we recommend that you should first consider the screen and the importance that this will have on achieving high quality projected images.

  1. That’s awesome! Projectors are usually about dark rooms and a compromise between seeing the presenter and the screen. Things have certainly come a long way!
