Disguise powers panoramic ION Sky multimedia show in Singapore.
Visitors and Singapore residents alike are flocking to the ION Sky multimedia show atop the tallest building on Orchard Road. Driven by disguise 4x4pro and 2x4pro media servers, the latest attraction on the city skyline offers a glimpse of the history and heritage of Singapore and Orchard Road when the area was little more than fruit and nutmeg plantations.
The immersive video projections begin during the elevator ride to Level 55 of ION Sky. Trees climb up the elevator walls blossoming as visitors exit onto a ramp leading to the Level 56 observation deck. Seasonal interactive projections map the floor and walls of the ramp: the current spring/summer theme features flowers and butterflies. The observation deck window panels are covered with roller blinds onto which a four-minute historical show commissioned by Singaporean singer/songwriter Dick Lee is projected. At the conclusion of the show the blinds lift to reveal the stunning 21st century panorama of the city.
Malcom Fooh, the disguise Operator from Acoustic & Lighting System, which provides technical support to the show, uses a disguise 4x4pro with Quad-DVI cards as the master media server and a disguise 2x4pro to drive the extensive video projections. “disguise was chosen for its ability to handle 20 Sony video projectors with a minimal number of servers,” he says. “disguise also provides seamless integration with the Crestron master show control system.”
