Epson Philippines Corporation in partnership with Ayala Land hosts Carol of Lights, a breathtaking video mapping light show that is inspired by the world’s most iconic ceiling murals from local and international churches such as Italy’s Sant’Andrea della Valle and the Sistine Chapel. The event was kicked off at the Ayala Triangle Gardens, Makati, last December 11.
Designed by Manila-based G.A. Fallarme and conceptualized with Henk-Gert Lenten, the intricate light show is projected onto the dome of the PSE Tower One and Exchange Plaza which served as the backdrop for this gorgeous montage, which is made possible by Epson’s Projection Mapping technology and software.
Projection mapping is the projection of video, animation, and other colorful displays onto three-dimensional surfaces within venues, such as sports stadiums, night clubs, and concert halls. Disney pioneered its use in 1969 (when it was originally called ” Spatial Augmented Reality”) with their Disneyland Haunted House. However, the high costs involved in its operation restricted its mainstream usage to big budget productions and venues.
Thankfully, advancements in projection mapping technology over the years gradually resulted in the advent of more improved and affordable projectors, such as Epson’s powerful EB-L25000U and versatile EB-L1755UNL laser projectors, which are used in the Carol of Lights. These projectors can project on almost any surface, and from any position or angle.
“We thank Ayala Land for this wonderful opportunity to brighten up everyone’s Christmas using Epson’s world-class 3LCD projectors,” said Eduardo Bonoan, Epson Philippines’ General Manager for Marketing Division said. “We look forward to leveraging our visual innovation technologies and transforming more venues into immersive, spellbinding art displays that create incredible experiences for customers.”
The Epson Carol of Lights light show runs daily from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will be shown until January 12, 2020. Drop by to see the awesome light show!
