David Atkins Enterprises and Digital Pulse use Adobe software for record-setting arena projection

David Atkins Enterprises and Digital Pulse use Adobe software for record-setting arena projection

Australian production studio delivers animation for the 12th Arab Games, on record-size projection space, using Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.

By Todd_Kopriva | May 22, 2012

In December 2011, the 12th quadrennial Arab Games took place in Doha, Qatar at Khalifa International Stadium. As part of the planning process for the Doha games, the world-renowned event production agency, David Atkins Enterprises (DAE), was commissioned to conceive and produce the opening and closing ceremonies. Following this commission, DAE contracted Australian digital design and video production specialists, Digital Pulse, to produce the animated visuals for the opening ceremony including the athletes' parade and cultural segments. Far from a conventional production canvas, the animated visuals that the Digital Pulse team were to produce for the event would have to play seamlessly across the stadium's two different playback systems: a contiguous LED system installed behind all stadium seats and an 86-projector projection system that covered a world record 12,600 cubic metres of on-field projection space.
