Epson and 4Wall Entertainment Light Up UNLV Pregame Show
Epson Partners with Leading Event Equipment Company to Deliver an Immersive Fan Experience Through Laser Projection Mapping
LONG BEACH, Calif. – March 7, 2018 – Epson and 4Wall Entertainment help deliver the ultimate projection mapping experience for UNLV Runnin’ Rebels basketball fans. 4Wall Entertainment, a leading event equipment company specializing in providing quality lighting and video equipment, chose Epson Pro L25000U Laser WUXGA 3LCD projectors to power UNLV’s immersive pregame experience through the art of projection mapping across Tarkanian Court at the Thomas & Mack Center.
To bring Tarkanian Court to life, 4Wall Entertainment and Epson joined forces to identify and deliver a reliable laser projector solution that seamlessly merged with oogoog productions content and distribution system. Utilizing the pixel mapping technique for accurate tracing of all lines of the court, and alpha mask creation for pinpoint accuracy, the pregame show includes 3D modeling, motion graphics, video and text overlays. Eight Epson Pro L25000U laser projectors are installed above the court and programmed to converge together displaying one large image over the entire court. From sharper images and brilliant colors, to flexibility without drawbacks of restrictive technology equipment, Epson laser projectors provide the utmost support needed for a larger-than-life pregame experience.

“We’re excited to take our pregame show to another level with this innovative technology. We see this as a game changing opportunity that engulfs our fans into a show comparative to one they might experience in a professional sports arena,” said Megan Caligiuri, UNLV Associate Athletics Director, Content Creation & Fan Engagement. “At the same time the projectors are flexible enough for a simple change in content and use elsewhere within the university, including sponsorship logo displays, important announcements and more – creating an all-around convenient and reliable display solution.”
“As a company that always delivers top-of-the-line technology and reliable technical assistance, we are excited to partner with Epson on this project,” said Dan Abdalla, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for 4Wall Entertainment. “Understanding the need to deliver that wow-factor fan experience in the city of entertainment, Epson’s laser projector technology is the topmost solution to cohesively work with oogoog productions for creating the ultimate projection mapping display.”
“Delivering innovative and reliable products is a top priority for Epson and the rental and staging market is a major focus for us,” said Gavin Downey, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. “We value our partnership with 4Wall Entertainment, and continue to work hard to deliver the most technologically advanced solutions that our partners can not only depend on, but also provide them with confidence in the products they are recommending to their customers.”
