Electrosonic provided the extensive audio, video and show-control systems for the China State Shipbuilding Pavilion at the Shanghai 2010 world’s fair. The pavilion experience enables visitors to explore the role of shipping in China’s past, investigate exciting concepts for future floating cities and farms, and simulate navigation. Electrosonic was challenged to deliver multi-image and edge-blended displays onto unusual surfaces; and furnish immersive interactive experiences for visitors. The pavilion will continue to operate as a permanent museum and exhibit long after the Expo is over.
Overall, Electrosonic furnished front, rear, and fog projection screens with the majority of surfaces edge-blended and/or warped to accommodate unusual screen geometry. More than 100 projectors were installed, as well as a videowall and 23 plasma and LCD displays – nine of them with built-in touch-sensitivity – ranging from 21 to 103 inches. In addition, 72 individual audio inputs and 94 individual audio outputs feed approximately 150 speakers.
