Paris, September 2020 – Modulo Pi is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new multi-projector auto-calibration module. Available as an option for the Modulo Player and Modulo Kinetic media servers, the auto-calibration system allows to automatically align multiple video-projectors on planar, curved, and dome surfaces for a pixel-perfect projection.
Designing the next generation of media server solutions, Modulo Pi is pleased to announce the official and immediate release of a new multi-projector auto-calibration system.
The dongle-based module allows to automatically handle multi-projector soft edge blending and geometry on planar, curved, and dome surfaces.
The auto-calibration module comes as an option for the Modulo Player and Modulo Kinetic media servers, ensuring a reliable and significantly simplified workflow.
Working with Modulo Player, up to one server can be supported, i.e up to 6 x WQXGA outputs, or 4 x 4K outputs.
Working with Modulo Kinetic, the auto-calibration option supports multi-server configuration, resulting in an unlimited number of outputs and resolution support.
Modulo Pi’s auto-calibration system can handle independent calibration groups, as well stacked video-projectors.
In addition, a versatile masking feature ensures a perfectly fine-tuned projection.
Fully developed by Modulo Pi, the auto-calibration module relies on Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras to offer fast and simplified cabling.
Using the Modulo Pi media servers equipped with the auto-calibration option, high-precision edge blending, warping, and media playback is achieved within minutes and with zero latency.
In summer 2019, design and production company ECA2 worked with a preview version of Modulo Pi’s auto-calibration module for The Legend of Pangu, a spectacular show in brand new Chinese Culture Exhibition Center in Lanzhou, China. The auto-calibration module was used to automatically align 20 x Christie projectors and deliver a 2.800 sqm 3D video mapping on a dome surface. “This is totally revolutionary technology”, explains Clément Rabréaud, Technical Director for The Legend of Pangu. “It takes just 13 minutes to run, which means that if a projector ever needs to be replaced, the whole system is back in focus quickly.”
