GAYA THEATRE


Company: Medialon Location: Seoul, South Korea


The Gaya Theatre in Seoul, South Korea, recently hosted a memorable hologram performance called VR BreakOut. Zenex Wave - a Korean design and production company - used Medialon Manager show and media control software with an iPad to let the audience enjoy and experience a 3D world of virtual reality on stage. The performance is a musical and dance story about prisoners who lead a routine life, isolated from the outside world, and dream of freedom through a mysterious Bi-guep (a book with supernatural power), which happens to fall from the sky. In VR BreakOut - selected for the 2010 Virtual Reality Content Support Project of Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) - Zenex Wave applies hologram to a commercial stage for the first time in Korea, realising virtual reality on the stage by combining technologies like 3D projection mapping, interactive sound and state of the art show control. During a free-style performance of the actors following the main story of the pro- duction, the sound interactive technique came shining through. While the brilliant beat box sound is made by Gundog, the hologram car in the background flies or ro- tates in the sky in real time. For hologram, 3D projection mapping, and interactive

sound, Zenex Wave used various systems, like Dataton WATCHOUT media players and five video projectors fit with shutters. With Medialon Manager show control software in operation, a single operator could control the functions from the video console using an iPad. The entire audio, video and lighting was controlled and synchronised by Medialon Manager show control software. “We made the performance become much more perfect by using a show control system so that a single operator could control these systems effectively from the video console,” declared Sin Kim Ji Hun from Zenex Wave. The video cue menu and the projector control menu were automatically converted according to the rotation of the iPad, allowing a more efficient and easier control panel. For the hologram, videos came from two projectors installed at the top behind the stage set out, and reflected on the mat screen on the floor and then projected on the foil screen (optical film) mounted at a 45° angle. www.zenex.co.kr / www.medialon.com
