Looks Like a Balloon, Acts Like a Projector

Up in the air at InfoComm, Visual Solutions Distributing displayed the Skyview, an inflatable sphere that houses a projector (or multiple projectors) and allows for static graphic messages on the rest of the surface. The company says Skyview is being used all over the North America, Asia and Europe at various conventions, concerts, malls, special events and promotional advertising campaigns. Skyview has been used at key events such as the NCAA Men’s Final Four, the World Baseball Classic, and at numerous conventions, concerts, political rallies and special events.

One cool thing about Skyview is that VSD says they can customize it to all sorts of shapes, such as footballs, for example. It can run DLP or LCD and HD or SD and can be used with wireless RF.

It can project an image up to 300 inches and the company says the inflatable format lets installers set it up in less than 30 minutes. It also packs up between installations.
