Limelight Atelier, a lighting design office in Singapore, contacted us in 2017 for a media facade project. The idea was to use video cameras mounted on the roof of the building and aimed at the sky to take create time-lapse movies during the day and play them back on more than 1000 RGBW DMX fixtures on the facade during the evening.
Lightact’s unique computer vision capabilities combined with its flexible Layer Layouts node-based programming interface made it the best media server choice for this project. Due to the number of DMX universes, one Lightact Pro L server was chosen.
As the project progressed to the design phase, Lightact’s Visualizer demonstrated its value by giving Limelight Atelier the possibility to visualize the entire project on a screen or in VR and to use the visualization to confirm the design with the Client. There was no need to use 3rd party visualization and rendering tools.
