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.

"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."
