  • FujiFilm Z5000 at Porto Legends - The Underground Experience

    Visitor attractions have long benefited from impressive projections like the ones you see below in the Portuguse catacoombs. What made this particular installation interesting was its use of the new FujiFilm Z5000 Projector with its flexible rotating lens and impressive lens shifts which resulted in large savings in terms of time to install and the cost of installation.

    For example, the flexibility of the Fuji Z5000 lens meant instead of 100 standard projectors they required only 35 Fuji projectors plus 10 standard projectors. The Fuji projector adapts extremely well in any space with its unique twistable lens arrangement. Coupled with its market leading horizontal and vertical lens shift it means its also cheaper and easier to install.

    In addition, the Z5000s projection mapping feature helps project more easily onto curved and difficult surfaces. As the video below demonstrates, the Fuji projector’s built in edge blending software creates impressive large moving visuals covering the large areas of the catacombs.

    Moreover, projector positioning is much simpler with the Fuji’s unique twistable lens and wide range of lens shift options ensuring the projector itself could be positioned out of the way of the audience while still creating magnificent results at the visitor attraction.

  • Leeds Light Night Guide 2019: Top Places to Visit and Suggest Route Plans

    The Leeds Light Festival 2019 is in its 15th year and its one of the most impressive light festivals in the world with 80,000 visitors. Here's what you can expect to see and ideas of where to go or plan your journey.

    Getting to Leeds Light Festival

    For a full list of transport options car parks click here

    If you are coming from the south or via M1 the Tetley car park is a good place to park since it means you don't have to go through all the traffic in Leeds Centre and everything is a short walk from there.

    Plan: Where to go at the Leeds Light Night: Top things to see

    If you're visiting the Light Night for the first time and want to know the best places to go here is a good route to follow to ensure you see the big attractions.

    The best exhibits will be centred around these areas so a good route might be to start at by a walk up the main street of Briggate and into the Victoria Quarter / Arcade Zone, then down The Headrow (Town Hall & Leeds Library for some warmth) and onto Millenium Square,  followed by City Square / Station Zone (projections onto the Queens Hotel) and across to Trinity Shopping centre followed before getting back to the bottom of Briggate.

    There will be timed shows as well as projections and art going on the whole time in all these areas along with market stalls and an array of street artists and performers. See below for the full list of events/shows. You can just walk around and see lots of different things going on almost everywhere you go on the route above.

    You can also take a free water taxi from Leeds Station (near the Hilton Hotel) to Leeds Dock (see the map for more info) and there are plenty of other venues from the First Direct Arena projecting special lights onto its roof to the Playhouse, Opera North to name a few. See the MAP below for the full list.

    Not to Be Missed at Leeds Light Night 2019

    The Flying Violinist

    Where / When: Trinity Shopping Centre 6.30pm, 7.30pm, 8:30pm and 9.30pm

    31. The Flying Violinist - Cirque Bijou (UK)

    The Vision (Ocubo Portugal)

    Projecting constantly onto the Queens Hotel next to the Train Station.

    37. The Vision - Ocubo (Portugal)

    Fire n Light Yorkshire Circus 

    When: 7.30; 8.45; 10.00

    56. Fire ‘n’ Light - Yorkshire Circus Collective (UK)

    In 2018 we saw everything from carnavals to tightrope walkers to individual artists riding on bikes with pico projectors projecting all around them onto the floors as they moved around.

    Its an extravaganza of light thats well worth visiting for all the family.

    The Complete list of events at Leeds Light Night 2019

    Thurs 10th Oct 2019

    Fri 10th Oct 2019

    The Leeds Light Night App / Paper Guide

    New this year in 2019 £1.99. Currently the app, although it helps contribute to event funding, its a little light on information and we found the website has a lot more useful information on it. However, to help keep the event free its well worth buying the paper guide book for Leeds Light night which has a lot of good info inside.

    You can also download the Leeds Light Night 2019 MAP of events here.

  • How to Project Slideshows or Digital Signage at an Event

    In one of our previous blogs we mentioned that we attended the Woolley Beer Festival where we used the Pico Genie M550 Plus and digital signage software to show off all the sponsors messages, event images and more. (Click here to see the blog).

    In this blog we will be helping you set up your Android projector to create a presentation remotely via a digital signage application. We'll also look at how to do this without wi-fi in case you are in the middle of nowhere like we were.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Digital Signage Player Software is essentially a media player which can be controlled through an editor and allows you to add images, videos,  powerpoints, live feeds, change the screen layout and more. You can see this software used on many screens places such as bars, hotels, restaurants and airports.

    You can also add content while you are at the event and take photos of the event like we did here with the band playing and then project it onto the tent walls. So we had our basic sponsor messages and then we added live info such as photos and other content throughout the show.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    After looking at many options for digital signage software we found a great solution called onsign.tv that works well with the Pico Genie M550 Plus  although it should work on most Android projectors.  It also has a 14 day free trial account!

    Best Digital Signage App for Android projectors

    You can download the Onsign app which acts a receiver of the content you have created on your laptop. The content is streamed from the onsign website to the projector so you can remotely display whatever you desire on the projector. You can also try Screen Cloud app.

    Image result for onsign tv

    If are projecting at an event and you don’t have access to Wi-Fi or a computer to access onsign.tv, there are workarounds that allow you to still be able to display your messages on a large projector screen.

    Creating Digital Signage or Slideshows if if there is no wifi

    A very simple solution to this is to use an SD card, USB or directly connect a mobile device or laptop to the projector (by wire or direct wireless connection for Android or Apple). Then goto the Gallery option which is already installed on the projector. To do this you can follow these steps:

    • If using powerpoint save all the slides from your slideshow as Jpeg files and put them in a folder beforehand, name these according to which ones you would like to show first e.g A Slide 1 and A Slide 2 (put A before as it will out them to the top of the list).
    • Copy onto SD, USB and the projector will recognise it for instant playback
    • Click on the album, click the 3 buttons in the top right corner and click slideshow.

    Using this method is very simple and effective however you cannot change how long the images are shown.

    Changing the slide show timings

    A better solution which allows you to have more control is to use an app called Random Slideshow (please don’t be discouraged by the name, you can set it so the images are sequential instead of random).  To do this you can follow these steps:

    • Download the app Random Slideshow.
    • Save all the slides from your slideshow as Jpeg files and put them in a folder beforehand, name these according to which ones you would like to show first e.g A Slide 1 and A Slide 2 (put A before as it will out them to the top of the list).
    • Copy onto SD, USB and the projector will recognise it for instant playback
    • Go into the Random Slideshow App, select the album you want to use "with this app you are also able to use multiple albums from different sources such as USB, SD or the projectors own internal memory and have it go through them all"
    • Scroll further down before clicking start slideshow to change the time length of each image and to turn the randomising off

    Live Feeds from Social Media (Twitter, Facebook)

    One great option you can use at a party or any event is social media pages. Simply access a browser such as Chrome on the projector and logon to your twitter page. This then displays all tweets displayed so if you ask everyone at the show via the projector to use your # or @ then you can see a live feed of everyone's comments, feedback and photos as the show rolls on. It can be a really powerful tool.
