CYPRESS, CALIF.—The University of Florida is getting fans at the O’Connell Center in to the action with on-court projection mapping shows, powered by Christie. The arena features four Christie Boxer 2K30 projectors and a Christie Pandoras Box Manager that were installed permanently after a one game experiment in February 2017.
Two projectors are placed on each side of the court, enabling the Boxer projectors to blend their content into a single image. In addition to the Boxer’s brightness, Eric Gazzillo of Quince Imaging, who installed the projectors, said that Florida chose the unit for its low maintenance, built-in six-lamp per unit redundancy and the ability to be upgraded to future technology. The Pandoras Box, meanwhile, provides real-time compositing of the imagery and motion tracking.
The school uses the systems to display a virtual gators logo, the championship banners for its teams, and athlete photos and stats on the court.
