“The guests love this new sensory room and are completely relaxed when immersed in the environment. In some cases, it has even stopped aggressive guests without any need for medication.”
Cesare Cappella, General Manager at ASFARM
"We were in instant agreement with Brain and Storm that Optoma’s W515 projectors were going to be the best high-quality performance projectors for our sensory room. In fact, the results of the installation far exceeded our best expectations of what the room would be like. I was very surprised at how simple and quick the installation and blending process was! The entire projection experience itself is fantastic and has been enhanced by the odour machine and sound system. The guests truly love the room where we can now create environments such as the seaside with a sea salt aroma.”
Cesare Cappella, General Manager at ASFARM
“Optoma is always our natural choice of projector manufacturer to go to. We are always reassured that we will get the best commercial and product support."
Daniele Tomé, Head of Brain and Storm
“The placement of the projectors was perfect as there was no interference with shadowing when the guests get up close to the projected walls. The 15 Optoma projectors were immediately available which made the whole process quicker and efficient with the installation time being much shorter than we expected."
Cesare Cappella, General Manager at ASFARM

The Challenge

ASFARM is a multi-purpose centre dedicated to the elderly. The centre has over fifty guests, many of whom suffer with behavioural disorders including severe aggression. ASFARM wanted to create a room to help relax guests and influence positive behaviour without the need for medication. The goal was to create a modern-day technology room which would inspire guests and encourage more sociable, constructive behaviour.

The Solution

Brain and Storm are a professional installation company who wanted to install Optoma projectors to elaborate on a multisensory room that would inspire the guests of ASFARM and in-turn create positive behaviour. The room would provide natural relaxation therapy through modern day elements for guests.

ASFARM envisioned an all-round sensory experience pleasuring as many of the senses as possible with priority to sight, hearing and smell. They wanted to bring a windowless room to life with reliable projectors that were capable of projecting bright, colourful images that could operate 24/7 and inspire guests visually.

Optoma was selected by Brain and Storm as the most reliable brand for this immersive room experience. In total, 15 W515 projectors were ceiling mounted and blended to create a consistent and continuous projection area that would run across all walls.

The Optoma ProScene W515 is a 6,000 lumen WXGA professional installation projector with DLP® technology which provides accurate colours and great contrast for stunning images. The model comes with advanced installation features including four corner correction, horizontal and vertical lens shift, keystone and 1.8x zoom, ensuring easy adjustment for quick installation.

In addition, the W515 projectors come with a variety of inputs, including HDMI with MHL technology, allowing connectivity to a wide variety of HD devices to easily display the content. The model also boasts an environmentally friendly and energy-saving Eco+ lamp power management mode that consumes less than 0.5-watts in standby, saving both time and money by prolonging the lamp life.

Further to the projection installation, an odour machine and an audio system were installed to enhance the overall experience for guests.

The Results

The final overall sensory room experience is breath-taking, with the ability to transport the guests into any environment they wish. This has been enhanced by the addition of an odour machine which is designed to match the projected imagery. A sound system was also installed to further immerse guests into the world projected by the Optoma projectors and create a true-to-life experience.  

The guests of ASFARM are overwhelmed by the new sensory room and are inspired by the work installed by Brain and Storm using 15 of Optoma’s W515 projectors. The sensory room has been designed to relax and reduce levels of aggression and stress so guests are transported into a world of tranquillity and fantasy where they feel relaxed and happy.
