The projector features 3rd generation LED technology that delivers brighter and vivid visuals and 30,000-hour long lifespans. The projector offers an instantaneous entertainment experience along with flexible installation options. The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the projection mapping industry, especially land-based events, owing to the complete ban on social gathering events across most parts of the world. The projection mapping market experienced a significant decline in growth during the pandemic. For instance, the UN cultural agency revealed that nearly 90 percent of treasured cultural institutions were closed.

Projection mapping can be defined as a 3D video projection technique that uses colors and lights to project virtual images on non-flat surfaces or irregular shapes like city landmarks, industrial sites, public buildings, and several others. Projection mapping offers a unique opportunity to immerse and attract a large audience with inspiring spectacles and captivating shows even from a distance. The projection mapping dimension involves providing a better experience to the audience. Various service providers who want different dimension type for projection mapping can connect to various manufacturers. The services provider will fulfill the demand as per the requirements of the customer providing end-to-end fulfillment service.
