Optoma has introduced Projection Mapper, a mobile app that enables users to project images and video simultaneously onto multiple flat surfaces or three-dimensional objects to create artful entertainment displays. In the past, mapping has been limited to high-end commercial applications like concerts, theaters, and museums, requiring expensive software and AV expertise. Optoma’s Projection Mapper, when coupled with a projector, opens the possibilities of mapping to virtually everyone.
Compatible with any projector that connects to smart devices via Airplay, Chromecast, or HDMI cable, Projection Mapper is an easy and inexpensive new way to display pictures, videos, and graphic displays onto any space. Mapping allows users to set multiple pieces of content to fit different surfaces simultaneously. With Projection Mapper you can DJ your own party while displaying cool graphics or images across different items in your home, or share family moments with photos displaying on one space while a family video runs on another. Beyond projecting content like movies, games and sports, users can now create engaging, live content experiences and digital art displays on nearly any surface.
Projection Mapper allows users to display multiple images and video at once, using multiple image sizes and resolutions up to high definition content, and in JPG, PNG, MP4, MOV, M4V, 3GP, and MKV formats. Users can create digital art displays with personal images and video to display family photos, vacation videos, and more to create an entertaining, multi-stream entertainment experience. The app allows users to time content to music to create a personal VJ experience, and professional-grade, themed content packages for holidays, events and seasons are available to purchase.
“As projection increasingly becomes a mainstream entertainment experience, we’re excited to bring fun and unique experiences to users,” said Brian Soto, head of product management, Optoma Technology. “Content mapping has existed in the professional realm for years, bringing art and entertainment to venues around the world. And with the holidays upon us, it opens endless possibilities for festive entertainment displays.”
Projection Mapper is designed for use with a digital projector and any Android, iOS, or Amazon Kindle Fire device and is available for download in the iOS App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon AppStore. For more information, visit www.optoma.com/projection-mapper.
