Challenge: The Podziemne Miasto Osówka compound is an original underground network of tunnels and caves dug out by prisoners during WWII in Poland. It is one of the largest and most incredible underground mazes and caves created within the mountains. Its purpose is still unclear but many people believe it was used secretly by the Nazis to create nuclear weapons. Deep down within the eerie, cold, silent mountain, Podziemne Miasto Osówka wanted to re-create the WWII atmosphere using projected imagery and videos on the uneven cave and tunnel walls.
Solution: 7x Optoma ZU510Te laser projectors, 2x Optoma ZU500TST laser projectors were installed.
Results: The Mayor of Głuszyca, Roman Głód stated: “Our main goal was to modernise and expand Podziemne Miasto Osówka exhibition like other advanced and spectacular museums in Poland. By incorporating the modern Optoma ZU510Te and ZU500TST projectors and other interesting architectural elements, our venue has become extremely popular.” He added: “Using cutting-edge multimedia technologies with voices of very famous Polish leaders has allowed younger generations to better understand the incredible history and hardship of WWII within these tunnels and caves.”
