Omnispace360, a US-based provider of immersive environments and experiences, relies on the Screenberry media server to power "Dalí Alive 360°." This cutting-edge audiovisual experience plunges attendees into the life, artworks, and imaginative world of the renowned Spanish surrealist. The show was co-produced by the Dalí Museum and Grande Experiences, the creators of "Van Gogh Alive" and world leaders in the creation and display of multisensory, immersive experiences.
"Dalí Alive 360°" is housed inside of the Dalí Dome, a novel addition to the Salvador Dalí Museum campus in St. Petersburg, Florida. This extraordinary space wraps visitors in immersive 360-degree visuals stretching from the top of the dome to the floor and extending below their feet. The show immerses visitors in the artist’s surreal landscapes, iconic melting clocks, and mind-bending illusions, taking them on a journey from the artist’s childhood in Spain through his introduction to the surrealist circles in Paris, his life in America, and finally, his return to Spain.
The Dali Dome measures 18m (60 ft) in diameter. To cover its dome-shaped walls and floor with a projection, Omnispace360 uses a single Screenberry media server to feed and automatically align 14 x WUXGA projectors mounted at the dome's zenith. The server utilizes one stationary industrial camera installed at the top of the dome to automatically calibrate both the floor and the dome projections. Central to ensuring a seamless experience was Screenberry’s 3D space reprojection feature. This advanced technique combines camera-based and 3D-scene-based workflows to pre-distort calibration maps, so the resulting image appears correct from the actual visitor’s point of view.
Screenberry also orchestrates 7.1 surround sound that perfectly blends with video and completes the wraparound effect.
