Facebook hosts a yearly internal Infrastructure Summit to discuss technology trends happening in their evolving business ecosystem. The theme of this year’s summit was innovation through exploration. In support of this message, Britelite built a 170ft wide custom projection stage and provided seamless animation loops transporting attendees into deep space.
The larger than life projection environment was regarded by the Facebook executive and events team as “out of this world.” Our projection array system included 8 Christie projectors that drove 150,000 lumens of light across a 170ft stage. To meet the resolution demands of the environment, 12K animations had to be created at 10:1 aspect ratio. Cutting edge video codecs were used to maximize playback performance.
