Client: Beijing Bei Ao



The EAG05 Opening Ceremony was an international event viewed by some 700 million people across Asia.The Electric Canvas was the sole foreign contractor providing projection covering large areas of the stadium floor and onto a large inflatable sphere.

Eighteen PIGI projectors were used in total, with most installed in custom housings set along the edge of the stadium roof. Scrolling and panoramic scenes and textures were created by our designers as a backdrop to the storyline of the cultural section of the ceremony. The Electric Canvas also provided the client with detailed technical drawings and specifications for custom infrastructure to simplify the challenges of the site.
