An immersive installation at an art museum in Sweden employs 10 Panasonic PT-RZ770 and two PT-RZ370 video projectors, powered by four Modulo Player Standard media servers.

Panasonic and Modulo Pi bring Vivaldi exhibition to life

A contemporary art museum in Sweden is using 12 Panasonic video projectors and four Modulo Player media servers by Modulo Pi to bring to life an immersive exhibition about the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi.

The ‘Vivaldi. The Four Seasons’ installation at Verket, in the town of Avesta, is part of the Avesta Art 2022 festival, which runs until September 18.

The immersion relies on 10 Panasonic PT-RZ770 and two PT-RZ370 video-projectors with ETDLE150 and ET-DLE030 optics. The projectors are powered by four Modulo Player Standard media servers by Modulo Pi, each equipped with four outputs. The media servers are used for projection mapping, and the playback of the video content for the different projectors. They also play a multichannel audio track, and control lights on a cue list.

The exhibition has been co-produced by Italian companies Emitalyotional Experiences and WhatWeAre interactive studio. It was originally created in 2017 for the cloister of the Diocesan Museum in Venice, Italy.

Andrea Nadalini, art director at WhatWeAre, said: “When WhatWeAre was involved in the project, the Modulo Player media servers were already in use. We had experience with other media servers and it was a pleasant discovery to work with a performing tool, full of integrated features and, above all, with a fast learning curve.”

Following a successful run in Venice, the exhibition transferred to Bologna in 2019. The Venetian cloister was recreated to scale in the Palazzo Fava’s noble hall. WhatWeAre carried out the scenographic reconstruction and re-engineering of the AV system.

At Verket, the exhibition has been set up in an industrial space, where the acoustics are similar to those of the original cloister in Venice. WhatWeAre redesigned the installation to fit with the venue. Particular attention was paid to show control, with custom user panels created for the museum’s staff using the Modulo Players.
