Dear users,
We’re pleased to share with you this new tutorial about the miniMAD,
In which we show you how to set up a video wall using 28 units!
The video also includes the step by step process commented by Pierre who’s in charge for the miniMAD’s development.

A lot of improvements are coming soon for the miniMAD by the way!
Stay tuned for the next MadMapper v4 version, which be released by the end of this year (hopefully),
Also, with the new Raspberry we do hope as well to offer a new, upgraded version of the miniMAD product in the future (but that will require a lot of work and hard-testing).
Until then, enjoy this tutorial!

Take a glance at the amazing lighting installation by Cosmopop & VEM Visionemotion for the Time Warp 2019 !

They succeed to exploit the huge floor 7 of the famous festival by creating a massive setup :
No less than 5 488 LED slices were used, which represents 38 760 LED pixels for 228 DMX universes.
They used MadMapper on 2 computers for the pixelmapping and another computer was running MadMapper for vjing with live generated content
(Plus content distribution over NDI and 28 MADRIX nebula)

Pascal Bach from VEM who was also the light and visual operator, kindly shared with us several screenshots of his MadMapper MADLight’s settings :

After having mapped, among others, the Berlin Cathedral or the Centre Jujol-Can Negre in Barcelona, the artist Sinoca has now used MadMapper again to create an amazing experience called Kubrick’s Odyssey 2019 : a pioneering audiovisual mapping experience that has never been made in a cinema before.

The -unpublished- immersive video mapping created by the musical composer Roger Subirana and the visual artist Silvia Isach (Sínoca) is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ film.
This new show activates sensory stimuli thanks to the fusion of sound effects and music with images on two surfaces, the screen of the cinema and the monolith, creating a 3D space.

The video of the Kubrick’s Odyssey 2019 project at a cinema in Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona) :

Kévin from Blockhouse Studios (US) kindly accepted to answer our questions,
so let’s discover the studio’s huge mapping projects and installations using MadMapper 😉

Could you present the company you work for? 

I am Kevin Winkler the Owner of Blockhouse Studios with my business partner Andy Beargie.
We started Blockhouse Studios 7 years ago in Bloomington Indiana. We started as a production company and recording studio and have expanded in to the projection mapping market. Projection Mapping has become large part of out business in the last 4 years.
We took to this projection mapping very quickly as it used every aspect of the broad skillset that Andy and I have acquired over the years.

Could you present your latest works, and the associated setups? 

NCAA IU Basket Ball Court @ Assembly Hall
For this project we used:8x 25,000 Lumen Epson Pro L25000U Laser projectors in a 2×2 configuration with stacked pairs.
Spec’d iMac Pro with eGPU AMD WX9100 Pro
Connected to Epson HDBaseT Converters to 320FT Cat6.

Why did you choose to use MadMapper?

Stable, Scalable, low-cost, always updated with new hardware compatibly, user friendly, and simple.
I feel one strength I’ve noticed is the Mad Mapper team carefully chooses which features to implement. Many of the other solutions on the market have so many options and features that don’t always work properly or make the application overwhelming to learn and navigate.
I feel this has allowed the Mad Mapper Team to focus on making every feature work as smoothly as possibly while keeping the application lightweight and powerful. In our testing the programs scales with your hardware with no issues. If you have a system that can push 16x 4k projectors with 4 High End GPUs and NVME RAIDs then Mad Mapper will push it.

How did you know about MadMapper?

Six Years ago I typed projection mapping into google and Mad Mapper came up. 

What are the 3 key-features you like the most? 

1.THE NEW CUE SYSTEM!!!
This is by far the most exciting feature added, its opened so many options for shows.
2. OBJ Import and using video files as UV
3. Spacial Scanner

If you had a (single) 3 request to improve MadMapper what would it be? 

1. Allow me to drag folders in the media browser so large projects can be more organized.
2. Bezier curves on mask
3. Keep expanding on the cue system

Thanks a lot Kevin !

“Having an affordable software solution that works well without expensive unique hardware is key for us.” by Limbic Cinema.

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
Limbic Cinema: Limbic Cinema is a co-operative of artists based in Bristol formed in 2012 by the members, Alex Wright, Tom Newell, Thomas E Pryce and Thomas Buttery.

We met as VJ’s on the club and festival circuits around the UK and decided we should team up. Despite the inconsistent wages and sticky floors, club nights always provided us the creative freedom to experiment and take risks. Over the course of four years, we’ve built strong relationships with festivals and events that we share a similar ethos and creative visions with; we’re particularly fond of Glastonbury Festival, Shambala, Freerotation, Alfresco Disco and Greenman Festival where we’ve exhibited numerous installations and in 2015 projection.

Beyond the music scene, we’re focusing more on the realms of theatre, large-scale building mapping, and Art Installations. For example, making contributions to The Stick House, and bringing the Wren Library in Cambridge to life with narrative driven visuals were both hugely fulfilling projects.
