CMS lights up the house with the NBL’s first court projection

CMS lights up the house with the NBL’s first court projection

, ,

Melbourne United’s last game of the 2015/2016 season included Australia’s first NBL court projection presentation developed by CMS Australasia as part of their pre-game entertainment package.  The amazing visual experience was months in the making with not only technicians and AV installing the venue infrastructure but a committed team of 3D and motion graphic designers producing the visual experience.

The technology behind the experience requires numerous integrated ultra-bright projectors that are blended to create one enormous high impact image. The result has been a stunning display that got the 10,000 plus crowd wowed and pumped for the final round of the NBL season. Steve Anderson, managing director of CMS said “After months of planning and hard work by our dedicated and highly skilled team, we are excited and proud to bring to the NBL a true WOW moment before the game has even begun.”

Vince Crivelli, Melbourne United CEO, noted “We are always looking for ways to improve the show surrounding our games, and this new technology definitely does that. This is all part of the NBL aiming to provide unforgettable fun, immersive experiences for the fans and CMS has delivered that for us.”

The court projection experience will also be part of the Feb 18th pre-game show when Melbourne Utd begins their 2016 finals campaign against the Breakers.

Volvo V40 Launch

Volvo V40 Launch

, , ,

In early 2013 Volvo executives invited the CMS creative team to develop something out of the box for the reveal of the all new V40 to the dealer network.
The brief required a visual event that matched the design, luxury and technical advancements that the V40 stood for. The story board was an ambitious one requiring custom set design, capture and projection of multiple backdrops and custom 3D animation onto and around Volvo’s new vehicle.

We quickly came to the conclusion that this project could only be carried out successfully using the latest in digital technology. 3D modelling was used to calculate the position of the projectors and to visualise the distorting effects of projected images falling onto the 3D surface of the car, essential preparation to ensure every pixel fell in the correct position. Eight 14000 Lumens Barco HD projectors and five Coolux Pandora media servers were employed to seamlessly wrap projected vision onto the V40, the ‘road surface’ and the background.

Kmart End Of Year Business update is an internal conference enabling staff and key stakeholders to celebrate the achievements from the year just gone.
The formal presentations are followed by VIP performances and the staff Christmas party. CMS AVHire provided circular screens and staging, projection mapping, audio, lighting and image walls.

The client wanted to do the presentation ”in the round” (meaning that the stage was central to a radially seated audience. The CMS Productions design team created a cylindrical projection screen which allowed multiple projectors to build a seamless 360 degree image. The circular screen eliminated blind spots and broadened the interaction with the audience.

CMS AVHire provided staging, projection mapping, audio, lighting and image walls.

A Bollywood themed extravaganza was a feature of the 2010 Coles Roadshow to compliment the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
The client was looking to excite store managers about a new product range of Indian Inspired taste sensations. CMS Productions were given a brief to “capture the tastes and colour of India”.

Two purpose built sets were constructed and traveled to five capital cities around Australia within two weeks. Four semi loads of equipment, including 4m high ‘stone pillars’ representing temple steps were deployed for each show.

As the photos show, the event was a brilliant success – and a whole lot of fun!
