The Best EP Setups for Easter
Environmental Projection is a big topic here at TripleWide Media. Not only do we write a bunch of articles on the subject, but we also get a lot of questions. Some questions range from gear recommendations and budget ranges to connection issues or content options. The fun part is when all is said and done and we get to see the truly amazing environments that you all have made using EP.
Today, we’re going to feature a few of the best environmental projection setups we have seen. These range from small rooms of around 100 seats, to massive sanctuaries that seat thousands. From cathedrals of old to the latest in modern buildings. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but a compilation of what can be done using environmental projection.
There are no two rooms that are alike. That being said, there’s also not one specific environmental projection system or setup that we can point you to. So, today we’re featuring some of the best environmental projection setups in various rooms and configurations to help you choose what is best for you and your space.
The Best Environmental Projection Setups
Backdrop & Environmental Projection
A lot of folks have to deal with a black stage backdrop, rear wall, etc. The easiest way to overcome this is to hang a drape, curtain, or cyc on the back of your stage that you can project your image on.
Flat Wall Environmental Projection
Limited by a setup that only allows for your stage or front wall to have projection? Embrace that challenge and create a massive environmental projection canvas. The enormity of the imagery in this setup will create the immersive environment that EP is known for in your space.
Large format Environmental Projection
Large rooms seem like a natural place for environmental projection. However, they can pose some distinct challenges. From the price of large format projectors, to masking and alignment, the scale can be a challenge. However, the result is simply breathtaking as the following images showcase.
Environmental Projection and Multiscreen
Below is a fantastic example of combining environmental projection with multiscreen. This is definitely an advanced setup that take s good bit more effort, but as you can see creates a large, vibrant environment.
Traditional Church Environmental Projection
Perhaps you have an older, more traditional sanctuary. Your room may have soaring ceilings, stained glass windows, and stunning architectural features. Can you still do environmental projection in there? Of course! The image below is one of our favorites. The height of the ceiling created a massive expanse that enveloped the entire room in projection.
Modern Room Environmental Projection
A lot of churches now are built in prefabricated buildings. Four white walls; a flat ceiling; a room that is completely sterile. This is a place where you can take environmental projection and turn your room into that magnificent cathedral, a forest, of the expanse of the cosmos.
Lyric Screens and Environmental Projection
What happens with lyric screens and EP? Well, there’s a few things to do. First, be sure the two systems are separate. This will save you a lot of headaches and hassles in the future. Whether you have one or two screens, you can wrap them with EP. You can either run the same graphic on your screens (like in the second image below) or simply overlay your EP on top of your screens. Either way is fine, just be sure it works and looks great. You don’t want a single image on a screen to be mismatched or competing with your environmental projection setup.
