The words “projection mapping” refers to the arrangement of projecting of multimedia on the different objects used as a screen, Projection of pictures/images and movies on the screen is not a new concept but the concept of projecting of images and movies on any object available, by adjusting the size and shape of the object, is a modern concept and large size of objects are used as a screen to project multimedia, like large buildings, towers, mountains or water screens. Generally, projection mappings are done to address a large number of viewers at public places for a promotional event or for entertainment purposes.
In the recent past, experiments of projection mapping of images and movies on water screen have been carried out and the result is very amazing ones. Due to its very translucent nature, the water screen is a very good medium for projection. With the help of powerful pump sets a large water screen is generated and images or movies are projected along with great sound effect, the final output is a spectacular experience of watching multimedia in the open environment with large and clear visuals. Two dimensional and three-dimensional images and movies can be enjoyed, on the water screen created with the help of different kinds of fountain nozzles. Better images and movies can be seen if the water screen is crystal clear. Water screens as created by the microdroplets, capture and reflect every pixel minutely, and generates larger and better output.
Due to their characteristics of being larger, open-air, flexible, and lucid; the water screens are becoming more and more popular for public events and entertainment. Technical experts through researches, add up more features every now and then, to make them excellent. Be it a water park, garden, resort, hotels, lake, pond, or pool of water, the water screens can be generated as per the size of the water body available and clarity of the water. Three-dimensional images and movies appear far better on the water screens than other traditional screens, hence many people insist on these screens especially for entertainment purposes.
However the water screens have one limitation that they are generated with the help of trillions of water droplets rising in the air and falling again, sometimes this process disrupts the image or movie projected thereon, therefore the presentation requiring very minutes details, may not be seen as clear as expected in the steady LED or 4K UHD screen. Hence it can be said that for event sponsorships and entertainment of a large number of people, water screens are the best idea to have fun in the open air.
