Medialon controls Big O show at Expo 2012
29 June 2012
South Korea - The marine-themed Expo 2012 opened in May 2012 for a three-month run in Yeosu, South Korea. The icon of the Expo is Big-O, a landmark constructed to give visitors an insight into the expo's theme, including experience zones hosting large-scale events and cultural performances.
ECA2 - a French-based company specialized in creating and producing major events and shows around the world - was in charge of designing the entire Big-O show as well as the O structure. The artistic and technical production of the show was also part of ECA2 mission.
During daytime the Big-O is a giant sculpture that will remain after the Expo as a symbolic landmark. By night, it is the centrepiece of a show that embraces the Expo's themes.
The O itself features a water screen inside the outer rim, which shows films and other videos. The outer rim also produces special effects, such as laser shows.
ECA2's team designed the O as a mysterious object that could have emerged from the ocean itself. It glints in the sunlight like a jewel over the lagoon. Modern materials such as concrete and steel are harmoniously combined to lend the structure an almost organic appearance.
For the Big-O night-time show, the Medialon show control system synchronises hundreds of devices and special effects, creating an immersive show that plunges the audience into the heart of a sensory narrative.
One Medialon Manager V6 PRO show control software allows controlling and synchronizing all the show's lighting, special effects, video and water features.
