One of the most glamorous technologies that is currently gaining steam in the commercial A/V industry is projection mapping.
Bringing this advanced technology down to an affordable, mass-market level, the global A/V company Optoma has just announced its new Projection Mapper app.
Optoma says its new app enables users to project video and graphics simultaneously onto multiple flat surfaces or 3D objects to create entertaining displays quickly and easily.
“As projection increasingly becomes a mainstream entertainment experience, we’re excited to bring fun and unique experiences to users,” says Brian Soto, head of product management, Optoma Technology.
“Content mapping has existed in the professional realm for years, bringing art and entertainment to venues around the world. And with the holidays upon us, it opens endless possibilities for festive entertainment displays.”
The manufacturer says typically projection mapping is used for applications like concerts, theaters, museums and other public displays.
The app, which is designed for simple implementation of projection mapping is compatible with any projector that connects to smart devices via Apple AirPlay, Chromecast or HDMI cable to support projection mapping in a variety of environments.
Projection mapping allows users to set multiple pieces of content to fit different surfaces simultaneously.

In real-world situations, projection mapping means that DJs can display cool graphics while blasting crowd-pleasing music, and in residential settings, homeowners can showcase family photos in one space, while running video in another space.
The app works with HD content and files types that include .JPG, .PNG, .MP4, .MOV, .M4V, 3GP and MKV.
The Optoma Projection Mapper app is available on the Apple iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire platforms, and it can be used for residential and commercial applications.
