Kontrapunkt Stages A380 Hand-over to Emirates

Publish date:

BERLIN, GERMANY—Commissioned by Airbus, the Hamburg events agency Kontrapunkt staged the handover of the first A380 widebodied jet to the Emirates airline with an attractive multimedia show that included elaborate panorama projections that enthralled the 500-plus guests gathered on the premises of Airbus in Hamburg. Images of the official handover to the Arab airline went all round the world. To provide media support for the delivery of the aircraft, Kontrapunkt engaged the tst Gesellschaft für audiovisuelle Systeme, a company based in Berlin.

For the event, tst used, among other things, a 20 x 4 meter soft-edged panorama projection using for the purpose four Barco FLM R20+ projectors of 20,000 ANSI lumens each in connection with ten Wings Platinum 3 from AV Stumpfl for the equipment of master, slave, and redundant computers, as well as further equipment. A particular challenge for the tst team was the very short projection distance onto the roller screen used, this being a mere 4.6 meters. The roller screen was raised during grand finale to reveal the new Airbus A380 that Emirates was taking delivery of, which was parked on the runway.
