World premiere of the new life size photovisual screen by Pondera Consult

Today most spatial developments, from new industrial areas to wind farms,  use photo or video visuals to show the future situation to the public. Using 3D rendering software and Photoshop, a photo or video of the current situation is edited and the new building(s) incorporated in the landscape. Until now, the results were usually shown to the public on paper prints or computer screens. This has several disadvantages however. Main concern is that it does not represent the feeling or experience one will have when actually standing at a certain location looking at the new wind farm for example. Additionally, when using a large field of view, optical distortion appears in the image. This is mainly because the screens and prints are too small and the viewing distance and angle is not correct.

To solve these issues Pondera Consult has developed a unique ‘life size visual screen’. This curved screen with a size of 6×2,2 meters and a 140 degree curve, is able to show photos and videos in full size. The curve and the large opening angle provide the viewer the opportunity to experience the location and new situation. Also the curve prevents optical distortion, which would otherwise be present using these large field of view.

On June 25, we have tested the screen for the first time during an information meeting for Wind Farm Fryslân, a 400 MW near shore wind farm in Lake IJssel.


The life size visual screen is not only suitable for wind energy visuals, but can also be used for other projects such as wind farm design sessions or the presentation of 3D models.
