PaintScaping provides mapping for Guinness World Record of largest videogame display
When: Dec 15th, 2020
The complex install was done by 3D projection mapping powerhouse PaintScaping. Barco projectors were used to break the Guinness World Records™ Title for Largest Projected Videogame Display, played live online, no less. The activation, produced by LA-based experiential marketing agency, BeCore Inc., involved snowboarder Grant Giller playing Xbox’s Destiny 2: Beyond Light.
The game size was 19,090 sqft (180.15ft x 105.97ft) and was projected at the top of Copper Mountain, in Colorado, at an altitude of 11,000 ft – one of the highest elevation projections ever produced. Three Barco UDX-4K40 Flex projectors – provided by rental expert Rentex – were used to map the mountain.
“It was a treat to work with the Barco UDX-4K40 projectors for this super-cool project,” says Philippe Bergeron, President of PaintScaping. “We knew that for a project like this, we would need reliability, low latency, and high-brightness - which is why we turned to Barco UDX-4K40 projectors.” PaintScaping gained notoriety this summer by producing the world’s first 3D mapping on an operational rocket, at Cape Canaveral.
PaintScaping has a long history of using Barco projectors. Previous PaintScaping projects utilizing Barcos include the largest mapping ever in the USA, for Britney Spears, in Las Vegas, on Park MGM. At 550ft wide, and 26 stories high, PaintScaping used 28 Barco UDX 32k to create the massive projection. PaintScaping also used Barco projectors for the largest holiday display on a natural canvas, in Sedona, Arizona, in 2018.
