Panasonic Case Study on MABE’s Projection Install at Southeastern
Posted on Dec 27, 2017
Bush Chapel in Southeastern University is one of the university’s busiest spaces and has a capacity of 750-hosting 2,000-3,000 student experiences via large performances per week.
The combination of Panasonic’s award-winning projectors and ultra-short throw lens create a screen that is 40 feet (12.2 meters) wide.
Because there is very little space, large images have to be projected from an extremely short distance. Unfortunately, the layout of the building did not permit the first choice of rear projection for the center blended image so Steve Griner, Director of Media Services, had to think outside the box to ensure that the solution fit the distinct nature of the stage and how the space is used. Specifically, Steve wanted to avoid having to place bulky equipment in the middle of the venue to support front projection, potentially causing changes to existing lighting systems and impacting ambient noise levels.
