sketch gallery technical capabilities

The Gallery is a 12m square room with 12 edge blended projectors, three on each wall, able to provide a seamless 360° presentation environment. Though, with the new Martin Creed artwork we are now able to projection map around his work to create stunning work that 'interacts' with the painted walls.

Our in-house playback device is run by Dataton’s Watchout software. This allows for 12 unique videos to play simultaneously and in full synchronisation. Furthermore, videos and still images can be moved around the space freely. Incorporating our 8 channel Soundweb controlled Meyer sound system provides almost limitless possibility to video presentations.

External playback and recording devices can be used such as laptops and video cameras. These devices can be stretched and resized to fit a single screen or a full wall with ease.

Shows can be created off site with freely downloadable software and emailed or transferred by hard drive or similar media to sketch to be uploaded onto our system.

Cues can be added to the shows providing full live performance functionality.
