Wynn Resort chooses Projected Image Digital PixelMAD

Projected Image Digital, the UK based digital media and control solutions specialists, have supplied, installed and commissioned a customised version of PixelMAD software to playback low resolution video imagery across a massive LED surface at the Wynn Resort development in Las Vegas.
The LED fixtures are embedded in a three-acre artificial lake. The PixelMAD system is controlling 24 universes of DMX and 4012 Colour Kinetics’ C-Splash 2 LED fixtures spread across the base of the ‘Lake of Dreams’. The system gives eight layers of digital media playback and 1:1 pixel mapping.
The PixelMAD is running on a 2.5 GHz dual processor Apple Mac and all system hardware and software was specified by PID. The software is triggered via a GrandMA console.
The GrandMA also controls other fixtures in and around the Lake including over 100 Martin MAC 2Ks, EC2s, Syncrolite 7Ks, Atomic Strobes, over 3000 Diversitronic strobes and 250 Altman and Hydrel exterior PAR lamps – illustrating the project’s spectacular proportions.
The Colour Splash’s are located under the Lake’s surface in a regular grid pattern. When the lake is aerated (via thousands of air pipes meshed across its bottom), the LED fixtures enable the lake surface to come alive as a giant low-resolution video screen.
