Sheraton Waikiki 4D Pool Projection

This is the first permanent architectural projection onto a swimming pool in the world. The system is comprised of 5 x 40K lumen and 2 x 20k lumen projectors and runs on two ProVideoPlayer servers streaming close to 22 million pixels.

The five Barco 40k projectorss are on the roof of the 31 story hotel.
The Two Barco 20k projectors on the second floor

The pool is a map of a 4096x4096 video cut into five 1920x1080 pieces on the fly by PVP2 and a single MacPro. Another MacPro is slaved on the second floor (some 30 stories below) for two 1920x1080 feeds to projectors for the rock imagery. The slaved Mac Pro also plays the soundtrack and PVP changes the input on the Bose PA with a contact closure relay, and changes it back once complete.

The $1.3M project runs nightly at 8pm and 9pm.

The pool in the daytime.

The projectors have mirrors attached to the front to project out, and then down to the pool some 320 feet below.

A test pattern used to get the alignment of the projectors right.

The 6 black "dots" at the top of the hotel are windows in the fascia for the projectors to project out onto the mirrors, which bounce the image down to the pool
