ERLANGER, KY, September 2, 2015 - tvONE (www.tvone.com) and Optoma (www.optoma.com) today announced their involvement in the creation of a huge interactive model of London, commissioned by New London Architecture (NLA). This impressive model includes 170,000 buildings and covers 33 square miles (85 sq km) of London.
Model makers, Pipers were appointed to construct the model for this ambitious project and AV experts, GHA Group, oversaw the projection system, installing eight Optoma ProScene EH505 projectors with short throw lenses to project down onto the model and a tvONE CORIOmaster Mini C3-510 to blend the output from these projectors.
NLA wanted to build a huge model of London that showed its iconic skyline, revealed the capital's planned developments and demonstrated graphically how the city has changed over the last two millennia. An existing app on their website was to be used as the basis for an interactive feature on the model allowing visitors to search and see planned developments across the city.
The New London Model will continue to be updated with projects that have planning permission or are under construction. This includes Crossrail and the upgrade of London Bridge Station, which are under construction, and future projects such as Crossrail 2 and High Speed 2.
