Bethesda Softworks : Wet Room 360°

We developed a revolutionary, ultra-short-throw, 360° projection system for Bethesda Softworks at Gamescom 2009 in Cologne.

An exhibition stand was created to support the launch of the third-person shooter, Wet, and the design came straight out of the game.

Using two 6-metre curved screens, which ran at eye level along either side of the stand, we could extend the game into a totally immersive, animated backdrop.

The projection rig involved six ultra-short-throw projectors mounted within a central column, and the image was fully edge-blended using an early incarnation of the Igloo Media Player.
