Coolux with 3D projection
10 February 2012
Belgium - The popular Belgian children's television shows Piet Piraat and Mega Mindy were recently turned into hugely successful stage productions involving state-of-the-art 3D projection technology.
Studio 100, one of Belgium's most important TV production companies, had to face the challenge of trying to do justice to the excitement of the series' popular characters' adventures. In the case of the super heroine Mega Mindy and the charming Pirate Piet, the actors were able to interact with a combination of traditional set pieces and 3D projections live on stage.
coolux Pandoras Box's brand new Version 5 Broadcast Servers proved to be the ideal tool for the production, due to the available HD SDI outputs. The coolux Widget Designer was an essential component when it came to creating interaction between the audience and the animation on display. The combination of the coolux Broadcast server and the Widget Designer software made it possible to easily apply movement effects to the available 3D objects on the fly.
coolux CEO Jan Huewel was very pleased with Studio 100's decision to make the new Broadcast Server a part of their studio and live show equipment. He said: "It's absolutely wonderful to see how dedicated Studio100 is when it comes to using innovative technologies for their extremely successful programmes. It is of course only natural for us at coolux to believe in the reliability of our own products, but when customers with such a great track record like Studio 100 trust us enough to integrate the new Broadcast Server into their workflow, it means a great deal to us."
