Bracknell, UK. 16th February 2021 - Panasonic projectors helped celebrate man’s understanding of Space with over 100,000 visitors seeing the spectacular projection mapping onto Stockholm’s iconic City Hall (Stadshuset) as part of the Nobel Week Lights festival. The installation is one of the largest video mapping projects ever seen in the city. The event celebrated the 2020 Nobel Prize in Stockholm with lighting installations created around the city inspired by Nobel laureate discoveries.
The creative result was SPACE, designed by Andreas Skärberg and produced by PXLFLD studios. The content is a 16 minute projection mapped, animated art installation celebrating amazing advances in space physics.
PXLFLD called on its partners Lumination of Sweden and Creative Technology, which specialises in advanced technical solutions for the live events and broadcast industry, to help make the vision become reality. The team deployed a total of 30 Panasonic PT-RQ22K and PT-RZ21K projectors for the display.
“We needed a laser-based projector that was easy to line up around all the sharp edges but also for the improved colour and contrast,” explained Johan Törnström, at Creative Technology. “It was also important that the projectors were compact and easy to set-up in the restricted space.” Johan added that the reliable Panasonic laser architecture was the single most important projector feature, as the installation ran over 12 days with many of the arrays were installed in portrait mode.
The Panasonic PT-RQ22K and PTRZ21K 20,000lm projectors combine 3-Chip DLP™ imaging with 4K+ SOLID SHINE Laser Phosphor technology to deliver the superior screen brightness uniformity important for projection mapping. “These projectors are designed for environments where the show must go on, with back-up input guaranteeing continuous picture display even if the primary signal is interrupted,” said Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager at Panasonic Business.
“Being able to present this huge piece to an audience in a safe way and having the visual content take centre stage was a truly humbling experience and the public response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Anders Granström, Technical Designer at PXLFLD.

I was absorbed in a noteworthy project within the auditorium and press room of one of Spain's major banks. While not touted as a groundbreaking venture, it bore the weight of practical challenges that demanded innovative solutions. The task at hand was to design a projection system for a sizable 10 x 6 curved screen, a standard requirement for corporate presentations and shareholder meetings. The unique twist lay in the bank's request for keynote speakers to stand and move freely on the stage, right next to the screen. It was a notable ask, and the solution we proposed was pragmatic yet transformative – two Ultra-Short-Throw (UST) lenses paired with 20,000 lm lamp-based projectors.
Europe has always been at the heart of wireless technologies, from Marconi’s very first wireless transmission in 1897. Back then that initial radio transmission transformed the world and wireless connectivity continues to do so today.
European businesses expect to see an average 32% boost in productivity in the three years after implementation of the latest wireless technology.
Chosen for its easy set-up, maintenance-free operation and ability to seamlessly blend various images into a single immersive projection, Panasonic’s PT-RZ990 1-Chip DLP projectors brought Lifesize Plans’ vision to life.
