RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit

We collaborated with the CAF Red Tail Squadron, Craftsmen, and Hemlock Films to create the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit . This unique show is housed in a 53’-long customized trailer with sides that slide out to create a 30-seat theater with a 180-degree panoramic screen. We installed an OmniFocus 500 series projection system, our highest-resolution option at 2560 x 1600 pixels. We worked with Hemlock Films as they gathered fisheye footage for the wide screen, and then used our OmniPlayer software to play back the content with real-time geometry correction. Inside the trailer, audiences not only experience virtual flight in the immersive environment, but also learn about, and are inspired by, the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II. The exhibit will travel to air shows, conferences, and schools around the United States through 2012. Check out the promotional clip here.
