"Captivating Show in a Tight Timeline" – Opening of the New Hockey Season

Reading Time ~8 minutes
February 1st, 2024
Light show for a hockey match turnkey
We were tasked by the youth hockey team SKA-GUOR Karelia with organizing a videomapping show for the opening of the new hockey season and the match for the Republic of Karelia Cup.

The challenge? We had just one month to execute the project, an extremely short time for a show of this magnitude.

The implementation unfolded in several phases.
1. Firstly, we conducted a site survey.

Firstly, we conducted a site survey. The low ceiling and tribunes posed significant challenges for installation and content development. Our solution involved using 15 Epson EB–L1715S laser projectors with short-throw lenses and a WATCHOUT video server system.

2. Next step - Script and Graphics Development.

The client requested that the show narrate the team's history, its goals, and achievements, while also highlighting the natural beauty of Karelia. We developed several script options, finalized one, and agreed on references and sketches. Our designers then began creating 3D and 2D graphics, considering the venue's specific features.

3. Installation and Calibration

We deployed 5 WATCHOUT servers, each with 3 video outputs, connected in a local network. We had just one day for installation and another for projector calibration to create a unified image with minimal distortions and edge blending.
The Result
Opening the hockey season
