Panasonic projectors captivate audiences with Lightroom installation

Beginning December 2023, London’s Lightroom will host an immersive experience titled ‘The Moonwalkers’.

This captivating display provides a distinctive viewpoint on the Apollo lunar missions from the 1960s-1970s, enhanced by 28 cutting-edge Panasonic 3-Chip DLP projectors.

Showcasing recently remastered photographs of the Apollo missions, 14 Panasonic PT-RQ22K 3-Chip DLPs are used for the space’s walls, with their pixel-quadrupling technology producing incredible 4K+ visuals at 20,000 lumens.

Out-of-this-world effects from challenging angles are achieved through the RQ22K’s full lens shift capabilities, enabled by a 360-degree installation through any axis, and Panasonic’s Ultra Short Throw (UST) lenses on many of the projectors.

Lightroom has also deployed 14 Panasonic PT-RZ12K 3-Chip DLP projectors that project 12,000 lumens onto the floor, creating an all-encompassing experience that transports visitors to the lunar surface.

Spearheaded by 59 Productions, storytelling through sound (which includes narration from Tom Hanks) accompanies the visuals, delivered by disguise and HOLOPLOT, respectively.

Lightroom’s CEO and producer of The Moonwalkers, Richard Slaney, said: “Lightroom’s mission is to create new kinds of experiences with the world’s greatest creative voices, using ground-breaking technology to tell stories for everyone.” The tech deployed for The Moonwalkers clearly helps to achieve this goal, providing solutions that are just as inspired as the venue itself.
