It turned out that both the space and the floor challenges were intertwined… and that the solution would create additional challenges.
Using stands, rear projection and a complex CAD-modeling.
To ensure a vibration-free projection the technical equipment would need to be placed on stands resting on the concrete floor beneath the raised floor; a 60cm space full of wires, cables and pipes.
To create a 3.6m wide projection area through rear projection and mirror reflection, a 3.6m wide glass screen would have to be mounted in the room’s wall and a 4K projector and a 2m * 1,2m large mirror would have to be installed behind the glass screen. As such an installation demands extra precision to avoid problematic second projections, the mirror’s and the projector’s exact positions have to be meticulously calculated.
NANCO was now facing the challenge of placing a 4K projector and a large mirror at only one and precise position on stands through a raised floor compact with cables and cooling elements. In order to succeed with this task, NANCO created an advanced CAD-model based on the premises and the planned setup.
HUMlab-X has now a display studio consisting of a 3.6m * 1.8m landscape 4K projection area created through rear projection and a reflecting mirror. Adjacent is a 1.8m * 2.1m portrait projection area created by two rear projecting mono projectors with soft edge overlaping. All vibration-free and without second reflection for maximum experience.
