For the Manitoba Museum’s Ancient Seas exhibit, The Elumenati employed our customizable and versatile OmniPlayer software, which we’ve used in many of our custom integration projects. OmniPlayer allows for multi-screen video playback at resolutions up to 4000 x 4000 pixels while employing such features as OmniMap geometry correction and stereo playback with real-time convergence adjustment.
The Ancient Seas exhibit consists of a single PC with four video outputs: one control monitor and three Canon Realis SX7 projectors. The system is tied into the museum’s automation controls for centrally triggered startup and shutdown. The Elumenati converted the raw frames (tiff) provided by the content creation team into the Elumenati Video Format (evf) which allows impressive playback performance.
Technical Supervisor Bert Valentin had this to say: “The folks at The Elumenati were great to work with, from the early investigative stage right through to opening. They were also pro-active with our animation contractor which I think, helped us attain the best possible end result.”
