Recently we gave a demonstration of big screen cinema to the wonderful folk at Three Springs in Western Australia. Three Springs is the wildflower capital of WA and in the centre of the wheat belt. It is 3 ½ hours north of Perth.
The wheat silos are 45 metres wide. We used a long throw lens on a Barco projector utilising its special video warping functions. Video warping allows the picture to be in focus even around curves as with the silos. We understand that this is the largest movie screen in Western Australia. The projector we used was 4K and with 22,000 ANSI lumens. The image quality was stunning.
Video warping is becoming very popular to screen creative images onto interesting buildings such as the sails of the Sydney Opera House.
