WATCHOUT multi-image software conjures ‘multimedia dreamworld’ in luxury Rome hotel29 May 2013
Covering over 100sqm inside Rome’s Trilussa Palace Hotel, the private wellness area uses Dataton WATCHOUT to transform the space to please customers’ requirements with lighting, multimedia and environmental control solutions.
Key to the provision of this private multimedia zone are a series of edge-blended LED projectors that offer three video backdrops on opposite walls. At the touch of a button, Moon Spa customers may choose from a pre-programmed library that includes Caribbean beaches, aerial views of tropical rain-forests, the slopes of an active volcano and stunning shots of planet earth as viewed from space.
Plunge pools, Turkish baths, Finnish saunas and a variety of showers are offered alongside loungers, with the whole space having a choice of automated lighting and audio environments which can be synchronised with the video.
“The ability of WATCHOUT multi-image display and presentation software to seamlessly edge-blend multiple images and synchronise their playback with audio, DMX and DALI lighting-control data was key to its deployment at the Moon Spa,” commented Claudio Ceroni of MecTech, which supplied the Dataton systems to Engineering Solutions.
“The result is a unique deployment of this technology in a space that will surely act as the template for many similar installations in the future.”
Fredrik Svahnberg, marketing director, Dataton, added: “The Trilussa Palace Hotel installation is the first time WATCHOUT has ben used in a spa that we know of. Looking at the images it is not hard to see why the customer was so keen to use our technology. Once again, we find a brand-new application for WATCHOUT!”
