CT Delivers Election Projection

As the General Election campaign drew to a close, CT projected live updates onto the BBC Broadcasting House

The 7th of May saw Creative Technology (CT) working through the night to display the General Election exit poll results. Using the London Broadcasting House as a canvas, the team set up nine Panasonic DZ21K projectors in three separate locations; six in two local hotels and three at Broadcasting House.

All nine projectors were connected by a 72 core fibre attached to a catenary wire. With the installation of this wire requiring the local roads to be closed off and such a large area being involved, the set-up proved a challenge but delivered impressive results.

The live data captured from the BBC’s VIS engine was pulled directly into CT’s Photon media server, with the onsite team translating it into the visual graphics seen on the building.
