Smart Energy Starts from a Seed in Korea

Boasting an exhibition area of 1,804 m2, Korea’s pavilion was among the largest at Expo 2017 Astana. The venue provided ample space for its “Future Energy, Smart Life” concept to unfold. Augmented reality and cutting-edge animation guided visitors on the journey of an “energy seed” that linked past, present, and future technologies while celebrating a fusion of traditional and modern culture.

Demonstrating the flexibility of Panasonic rear-projection technology, ET-D75LE95 ultra-short-throw lenses paired with PT-DZ110X 3-Chip DLP™ units lit up the pavilion entranceway with single-screen images projected onto three tall doors. Inside the pavilion’s dedicated theater, four PT-DZ870 1-Chip DLP™ projectors, each with 8,500 lumens at WUXGA, aimed from concealed in-wall positions onto a specialized slit-ribbon screen. Live performers moved in and out of the screen with motion-tracking augmenting background images for a surreal entertainment experience. At the intersection of art and technology, Panasonic again makes the impossible possible.

The Panasonic ET-D75LE95 Ultra-Short-Throw Lens enables large-scale image projection in tight spaces without shadowing.
The lenses were employed with 3-Chip DLP™ projectors at the Korean pavilion entranceway.
