DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Delcom Group (www.delcomgroup.com), a full-service technology and integration company, announced today its integration services were used for the new, world-class Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s running wall exhibit in the museum’s Sports Hall. The running wall is a 55-foot interactive exhibit where kids can race Felix Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, a WOGA Level 10 gymnast, a 3D life-size Tyrannosaurus rex and a 3D life-size cheetah.
“Working with the museum has given us the opportunity to create an engaging, interactive learning platform that enables students of all ages to discover and share in that experience together,” said Joe Mark Phillips, Director of Business Development for Delcom Group. “This project was a unique, high-profile installation that required the projection of large moving images on a 55-foot wall from a very close distance.”
The running wall installation is the result of collaboration between Delcom Group, boutique creative agency 900lbs and projector company BenQ America Corp. The museum is using six short-throw projectors to power the exhibit. Delcom recommended using the process of “image blending,” which enables seamless video projection alongside the participants. Each projector displays one part of the larger image to construct a continuous horizontal video projection. You can see a video of the running wall here: http://youtu.be/XVAkxuoJFUI.
“The interactive running wall has become a popular exhibit at the museum,” said Justin Ashford, Director of Technology, Perot Museum of Nature and Science. “It's definitely a 'must see.' We are extremely happy with the quality of the exhibit and Delcom has been a great partner for the design and installation of the audio-visual components. They have helped us create an immersive and memorable experience for our visitors.”
The Perot Museum opened earlier this month. The 180,000 square foot, $185 million facility provides many interactive experiences to inspire scientific curiosity in visitors of all ages.
