Big Screens 2011 - A Large-Scale Video Installation by NYU Students

Big Screens 2011 – Friday, December 2, 2011 – 6pm

Coming up this Friday, take a trip to Chelsea and watch some large-format video installations made by students from NYU’s Tisch school Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). The student-produced videos will be projected on the video wall in the lobby of the IAC building – one of the largest high-resolution video walls in the world, at 11 ft high by 120 ft wide!

Take a look through the ITP website for a full list of the videos and stop by the IAC building in Chelsea this Friday:

6:00 pm Doors open
6:30 pm First showing
7:15 pm Remarks
7:30 pm Second showing
(shows are identical)

RSVP: itp.rsvp[at]nyu.edu

IAC Building Lobby
555 W. 18th St. at West St.

What does at 120 ft video wall look like? Check out some testing being done with videos from a previous year’s Big Screens show:

To project a 120-foot-long high-definition video image requires not one but eighteen sequential projectors perfectly calibrated with computer software so that the point at which one projected image starts and the next takes over is barely discernible–a process called “edge blending.”
