Explanation of the Immersive Experience
At the Wizard of Oz Museum in Cape Canaveral, three-dimensional scene designs were possible with advances in recent computer technology, enabling animated scene experience on all four walls and the floor.
There are a few installations in some museums using similar technology named 360-degree view, but it is not the same.
The main difference is in addition to wall projection, projection to the floor is utilized. The ceiling utilization in the ideal Immersive environment also is a bonus.
In a few major cities in the USA in the past few years, the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit was on temporary display for two or three months, with computers and projectors moved later to repeat the same shows in different cities.
One of the biggest challenges for building selection for the exhibit is locating one with a light color floor since projection is almost invisible on a darker color floor.
I recently experienced low-quality projection during my visit to Orlando Immersive Van Gogh at Convention Center with a dark concrete floor.
Scenes are almost not visible on the dark floor, resulting in visitors experiencing the main view of all four walls.
In the Wizard of Oz Museum, we installed a new light color floor for visitors to have an immersive experience as close to reality, providing a unique opportunity for a better experience.
Usually, twice as many laser projectors are required to cover the floor as all four walls combined.
In the case of the Wizard of Oz museum, out of 31 projectors, 15 cover all four walls, and 16 cover the floor. The number of projectors installed per square foot of coverage is the main factor since it results in better-quality images.
In the case of the Orlando exhibit, they use 50 projectors to cover a 6,000 s.f room, while we use 31 for 2000 s.f. as an example.
In summary, for the Orlando exhibit to have quality images similar to the Wizard of Oz museum, 93 projectors are needed.
In conclusion, based on the facts provided, images are almost twice sharper at the Wizard of Oz Museum compared to the Orlando exhibit or similar temporary installations.
