Panasonic Laser Projectors Create Immersive AURA at Sovereign Hill
Storytelling truly comes to life at Ballarat’s Sovereign Hill AURA light and sound show
Featuring over 20 Panasonic laser projectors and incorporating cutting-edge 3D technology and edge blending, video projections across a 64-acre site recreate regional history via an astounding and unique immersive experience, transporting viewers from the Dreamtime, to the gold rush and the Eureka rebellion as it’s never been seen before.
"The story is told through a series of projection surfaces throughout the whole site, so it starts with the back of the doors and then opens up to the next layer of surface on some moving tents where the image has to be tracked, so the automation system is talking to the projection system to control where the image is. It’s a very big projection undertaking and Panasonic were exceptionally supportive."
The AURA experience begins in Sovereign Hill’s theatre with a 3D documentary exploring space before visitors travel in carts to a stage where the Wadawurrung creation story is told with projections on a magnificent lake. The magnificent finale takes place in an outdoor theatre as gunfights and protests erupt under the night sky, illustrating a land transformed by the gold rush.
Designed by Creative Director Andrew Walsh AM and his Accolade Event Management team of local and international talent, AURA features cutting-edge 3D projection technology to be seen only at Sovereign Hill. Two years in the making, this large scale installation involves hundreds of projections that depend on the unrivalled brightness, uncompromising colour and exceptional low maintenance of Panasonic Solid Shine light source projectors.
"We weren’t as fearful in putting in what is something like 20 projectors into the show because we are using laser hybrid projectors that doesn’t require us to have constant lamp changes. The networkability of all of those projectors mean that we can also monitor them. We can look at their health and wellbeing from afar."
