CETRO High-Tech Viewpoint

City/Country: CDMX, Mexico
CETRO is located on the 46th floor, "La Corona", of the iconic WTC building in Mexico City. The objective of the project is to give a "WOW" effect to the visitors of this 360-degree viewpoint, with views of all of Mexico City and to always have the technological support for it. In addition to being a 360-degree viewpoint, it is also an event hall. ZaSu Mexico integrated audio, video and digital signage via remote, all centrally controlled from the corporate integrator. To achieve the effect "Curved" as the building itself, with flat screens for Videowall, designed and manufactured supports that one by one were installed and calibrated.

Fixed installation of 3D video mapping

City/Country: Zipaquirá, Colombia
The mapping show called "Lumen Spei" (Light of Hope) is projected directly onto the salt rock 180 meters underground in the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, every day of the year, with more than 10 daily shows. The assembly and implementation of the project had to overcome great challenges previously posed, such as the height at which the projectors had to be fixed (at 7, 8 and 9 meters from the floor), as well as the proportions of the main altar that would be used as a projection canvas in a total area of 1,003 m2. The proportion of the video that was generated is 17 m high by 59 m wide, with different depths in the walls, especially that of the central cross, which is 21 meters from the front walls. The high salinity, humidity and pollution conditions inside the Cathedral required the installation of equipment protection housing with air filters and cooling fans. The technological innovation went beyond the use of laser projection technology; audio and video transmission is also carried out using HDbaseT protocol, which allows interconnectivity, control and supervision of all the equipment at a distance of more than 60 meters from the video server and control rack.

Immersive Room Kirchner Cultural Center

City/Country: Buenos Aires, Argentina
The Kirchner Cultural Center was looking for an immersive room for the exhibition of multimedia art supported by technology. Fourteen 12,000 ANSI lumens laser projectors were used, with special ultra extra-short lenses. A system based on high-performance professional multimedia servers with multiple video outputs as signal sources was also developed. For audio, a multi-channel configuration of 24 channels was foreseen, distributed through low impedance pipelines. The routing of these multiple channels between the sources (servers) and the processor is through the Dante protocol. Regarding the lighting, the system responds to the standard DMX 512 protocol, whose scenes are pre-recorded in a controller and triggered in synchronism with the audio and video. The control system includes the use of a centralized system for turning on and off the projectors and the entire system, either hourly or manually, allowing the system to operate autonomously.

Technological renovation of the Bogota Planetarium dome

City/Country: Bogota, Colombia
The Bogota Planetarium Dome is an icon in the city and in Colombia, with a dome 23 meters in diameter, the largest in South America. It is a unique stage for the performing and audiovisual arts in which, through the synergy of art, science and new technologies, new worlds are created and recreated. To update and renew the existing equipment, a digital projection system was installed, consisting of two 32,000-lumen RGB 4K pure laser projectors, controlled by Pandoras Box Version 8 servers, a Mystique self-alignment and calibration system and Digistar 7. With this projection solution, the Planetarium enjoys a 4K projection of extraordinary contrast and great luminosity to display videos with images full of textures and vivid colors. Management, through the software servers, ensures reliable performance, both for the multiple daily functions and for interaction with the Digistar 7 program.
