RENTEX, INC. PROVIDES BARCO PROJECTORS TO PAINTSCAPING IN SUPPORT OF GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ TITLE “LARGEST PROJECTED VIDEO GAME DISPLAY”
120,000 lumens at the top of Copper Mountain set the stage for Xbox Spectacular
Canton, MA – (December 17, 2020) – Rentex, Inc. provided three Barco UDX-4K40 Flex projectors for the largest ever projection of a video game. This amazing display, produced by LA-based Be Core, Inc., featured snowboarder Grant Giller playing Xbox’s Destiny 2.
The spectacular live event was executed by 3D projection mapping leader, PaintScaping Inc. Projected at the top of Copper Mountain in Colorado, the game display size was 19,090 square feet (180.15’ x 105.87’) at a breathtaking altitude of 11,000 feet. Industry rental leader, Rentex, rented three Barco UDX-4K40 Flex laser projectors to PaintScaping. Of course, the Rentex projectors were in immaculate condition, allowing PaintScaping to do their magic and stay on schedule.
“It was reassuring to work with Rentex and the Barco 40,000-lumen projectors for this super-cool project,” says Philippe Bergeron, President of PaintScaping. 3D projection mapping is not new to PaintScaping. The company gained notoriety this summer by producing the world’s first ever projection mapping on an operational rocket at Cape Canaveral.
“As a rental partner to our clients, we do not always know where our equipment is going, or what great experiences our they create for their clients. It was a treat when our customer/partners at PaintScaping explained why they needed a delivery at the top of a mountain,” says Janne’ Mummert, Vice President of Business Development at Rentex. “The amazing image quality of Barco’s UDX 4K40 combined with the creativity and talent of Philippe’s team at PaintScaping delivered a stunning visual experience. We thank PaintScaping for trusting Rentex to provide pristine equipment for this project.”
