In 2012, we started working with Cirque Du Soleil to assist them with their A/V repair needs. Many of the effects in their shows are the product of complex projection mapping elements. These graphical elements combine live video from PTZ cameras with projectors to create stunning and realistic 3D visuals on raised surfaces. Between 2013 and 2014, we helped the Zarkana production refurbish and repair Panasonic PTZ cameras, as well as performed maintenance and lamp replacement on high brightness Panasonic projectors.
Mystical Illusions With the Help of High Tech A/V
Cirque Du Soleil has an incredible history merging technology with stage magic. One of their newest shows, Zarkana, is no exception. With the use of projectors and robotic pan, tilt, and zoom cameras, Cirque Du Soleil invokes wonder and mystery in Las Vegas’ Aria Hotel and Casino.
How Did We Help?
Cirque Du Soleil turned to us repair and maintain complex camera and projection equipment. With a cast of talented performers and techs, everyone is expected to perform. In the event of failure, the show would suffer, and it was our job to make sure these units performed as expected.
