ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
For years on end, the Dubai Film Festival has been working closely together with ShowTex Middle East to offer its numerous visitors the ultimate cinema experience.
This year, the festival decided to replace the main movie screen with a brand-new FP SuperMat projection screen, perforated with microscopic holes for an excellent sound transparency. The large 9 by 19 metre PVC fabric was secured in an aluminium ShowTex ScreenFrame and ensured the highest possible image quality for all spectators present.
But it did not stop there! The fascinating opening ceremony had ShowTex written all over it, as a 9 by 9 metre FP White projection screen was the base for striking video and 3D animations by JBM Productions. Together with a white DanceCarpet Double floor cover, the screen formed a three-dimensional projection box in which a live performer could magically interact with the mapped content. A stunning effect!
As there was a very short change-over time between the opening ceremony and the main event, an ultra-fast HiSpeed 8000 Roll-Up system made sure the temporary projection surface smoothly disappeared out of sight.
To keep all ambient light out, ShowTex installed various blackout curtains in the screening room and finished off the high-gain movie screen with black DekoMolton borders all around.
