Projection mapping (also known as video mapping) is one of the coolest design techniques to come along in quite some time, creating jaw-dropping animated effects against often unconventional backdrops, such as the side of a building. But what exactly is projection mapping? How can we use this technique, normally reserved for massive outdoor effects or multimillion dollar stage productions, on our events? What are the biggest impacts on cost, and can it be done on a dime? This class will explain how projection mapping works, explore various uses for it, provide insight into when it makes sense to deploy, and discuss cost implications.

This class focuses on explaining how projection mapping works and how you can use it. To see detailed examples of projection mapping in the field, check out Projection Mapping: Case Studies.
