Uninterrupted: Vancouver 2017

Debuting in late June 2017, UNINTERRUPTED is 30-minute projected spectacle that is being described as a “blend of cinematic storytelling and high-tech art installation”.

Borne of the personal experiences of director Nettie Wild, Vancouver audiences stood in Cooper’s Park, only to find themselves immersed in a multi-verse of media: the concrete underbelly of the six-lane wide Cambie Bridge acted allowed the audience to journey with migrating schools of Pacific salmon.

To cover the 1100m projection surface, they used eight projectors at 30Mpixels with a resolution of 6240 by 4800 pixels. The entire show was controlled by a central workstation connected to two Photon media servers, fed by a 4K live feed, and featured a singular HD with eight output ports. Eight SSDs (1 Tb of storage space) ensured that the content access was smooth and lightning fast.
