Tempest helps bring history to life at The Festung Xperience

The experience features elaborate projection mapped displays powered by 29 projectors
Tamschick Media + Space, a Germany-based interdisciplinary media firm, has created a new projection mapped storytelling experience at The Festung Xperience at Dresden Fortress, a neo-renaissance castle dating back to the 16th century, in Dresden, Germany.

Taking guests on a 500-year journey through the fortress' history, the experience features precision mapped content projected onto the metre-thick sandstone walls of the fortress.
Rather than museum exhibits, the experience features AV displays featuring projections and audio from a cast of historic characters, such as Maurice, Elector of Saxony and Johann Friedrich Böttger, who is credited as the first European to create hard-paste porcelain.

It is powered by 29 laser phosphor projectors, with most of the projectors being supplied by Epson, with a 1080p and WUXGA display. The projection design was created by engineer firm Planungsbüro Seeger, while Tempest, a manufacturer of projection enclosures, supplied custom-made projector enclosures to protect the projectors from humdity and dust as well as control noise levels.

Tempest created custom projection enclosures to protect the projectors from humidity and dust

"Ensuring projectors operated successfully was a big challenge, and I'm delighted that Tempest could meet all requirements - in respect to dust protection, noise level, size and weight, as well as the primatry role of protecting the projectors in these conditions," said Björn Seeger, technical consultant for Tamschick Media + Space.

"All 29 projectors have individual projection geometry. It was a hard task to put together designs for lenses, throws, warping and so on. Since it's a historic site, there are no right angles; it's all built by hand and very custom."
