About the project "The European Capital of Culture"


The European Capital of Culture project was established to highlight the richness and diversity of European cultures, strengthen cultural ties among Europeans, bring together people from different European countries, familiarize other cultures, promote mutual understanding and strengthen the sense of Europeanism.

The most important legacy of the project is putting culture in the very center of social development and observing culture as the key to the economic development of a society based on knowledge, innovation and creativity. Many cultural capitals used the opportunity to develop cultural infrastructure during the project itself and afterwards, provide a wider access to culture, improve the image of the city, develop a tourism economy and strengthen the cultural and creative industries, which will certainly be possible in Novi Sad thanks to the supplied equipment.


About the supplied multimedia equipment


One of the technological challenges imposed in the project was video mapping of buildings where the key thing, in addition to professional equipment, was also quality video material. This was successfully implemented by our partner on the project, Zoom Media.

The supplied accessories for this type of projection come from the renowned manufacturer Christie. Coolux Pandora Box Quad media server processes and stores video content, displays 3D space with projected mapping objects and real-time playback of created 3D scenarios in simulated physically designed space.


The supplied Christie Roadster WU20KJ projectors use 3-DLP technology, have a 1920x1200 WUXGA resolution and a minimum illumination of 20,000 lumens. Contrast is 2000: 1 with xenon lamp of 3kW power. The projectors feature image warping and projection of one image using two projectors with no visible edge blending. The first video mapping was done for New Year's Eve in Novi Sad in front of the City Hall.


For the needs of the Foundation's offices, a video presentation system with sound system has been installed. The system consists of a Sony professional 75" display with a suitable wall mount and two additional collaborative devices that are compatible with the offered display.


A circular LED billboard also has been delivered, whose installation is planned in the center of the city with respect to the maximum external dimension of the complete construction including a protective part not exceeding 1,9 m diameter, as well as a height of 3,15 m. In the LED display itself, an automatic illumination control card is installed depending on the exterior lighting. A professional computer for wireless communication and filling of video content was also delivered.


One of the requirements of the Foundation was the delivery of a portable cinema projector. In this regard, a robust Christie DHD600-G projector with more than one type of lens for different types of projections has been delivered to work in 24/7 mode. The image is projected on the Airscreen AIRTIGHT inflatable screen, measuring 488x274cm. The RCF Evox 8 mobile sound system is in charge of the sound of the portable cinema, as well as the planned conferences.
