Hippotizer serves up immersive projections at Panorama 6th October Museum


Deployed by local AV specialist Audio Technology SAE, Green Hippo’s Hippotizer media servers are driving a number of high-resolution displays at the newly renovated Panorama 6th October Museum in Cairo. The museum, which commemorates the 6th October War of 1973, is using Hippotizer’s mapping capabilities and third-party integration options to provide custom HD projection mapping solutions in three interior halls, as well as on the outside of the building itself. The museum is now able to pursue its educational remit with a full-day entertainment programme which brings the history of this troubled period back to life for audiences of all ages.

The building’s exterior is the projection surface for 4k resolution content, mapped and fed to six 30,000-lumen laser projectors by a Hippotizer Karst+ Media Server.

Inside, three halls feature high-resolution projection. In Hall 1’s 150-seat 5D cinema, a Hippotizer Amba+ provides Full HD, 3D stereoscopic content, while in Hall 3 a Hippotizer Boreal+ feeds a 10K resolution U-shaped display via six 13,000-lumen Christie laser projectors. Finally, in Hall 4, another Hippotizer Boreal+ provides Full HD content for an immersive, 360° projection using nine 10,000-lumen Christie laser projectors. Here, the footage features scenes from Egypt’s more recent political times – the 2011 and 2013 revolutions.

‘Mounting, blending and aligning the projectors in the very small spaces to cover the large screen surfaces, especially for the 3D mapping projection show in the outdoor zone and in Hall 3, was a big challenge,’ noted Jacko Makram, project design leader for Audio Technology SAE. ‘Also, deploying and managing the content in high resolutions of 4K or 10K, blending these projections and then ensuring consistent system stability during the daily shows.’

Throughout the nine-month period of installation, commissioning and staff training, Audio Technology SAE was aided by Green Hippo’s technical support. The result has been appreciated by all concerned. ‘The client has said that the completed installation exceeds all their expectations,’ concluded Makram, ‘and the audiences to date have been so excited, as this is the first time in Egypt that we have had all of this technology and experience combined together in one place.’
