The Roncalli circus, founded in Germany in 1976 wanted to transform the traditional circus experience in an imaginative, creative way.
Roncalli were aiming to create 3D holographic images from bright, reliable, long-lasting projectors to fill the circus arena measuring 32 metres wide and 5 metres deep with 360° visibility for the entire audience.
Bluebox selected Optoma as the best solution for this project and installed 11 sensational ZU850 projectors for a mesmerising holographic experience.
Birger Wunderlich at Bluebox stated “We have been using Optoma projectors for 6 years and have consistently had a very positive experience in price, performance and reliability. We needed a high contrast projector with great colours for the 3D effect and the ZU850’s 2,000,000:1 contrast is perfect for this project.“
Boasting superior colour performance and 360° projection capability, Optoma’s ZU850 models with innovative MultiColor laser technology have assisted in creating a phenomenal experience for Roncalli circus visitors.
Thousands of visitors now enjoy a modern, entertaining twist on the circus experience. With 360° projection of horses galloping around the arena and elephants doing head stands, the Roncalli circus experience is not one to miss.
The installation was completed using 11 BX-CTA03 long throw lenses allowing the ZU850 models to be positioned further away for ultimate flexibility.
Optoma’s ZU850 projectors bring the Roncalli circus to life, thrilling audiences all over Germany with entertaining holographic footage.
Birger Wunderlich at Bluebox stated “We chose to install the Optoma ZU850 models because we needed a consistent light output over the duration of the installation and Optoma have delivered us this on an exceptional level.”
Janine Kunze, an Actress from Germany stated “The hologram at the beginning was really special. You will always remember the Roncalli circus once you’ve been.”
Visitors of the Roncalli circus are left mesmerised and inspired by the effects produced by the Optoma projectors.
Katja Burkard, a TV Presenter from Germany found the hologram the most entertaining part of the show. She stated: “I found it very contemporary – I especially loved the fact the hologram could replicate real animals in a very good way”.
