Tirpitz museum Denmark

The new Tirpitz Museum boasts four exhibition rooms and is linked underground to a large bunker from World War Two, which was part of the Atlantikwall. Once inside the museum, you tune into the natural rhythm of West Jutland, into the heartbeat of the region. In the central room, the movement is visualised in a pulsating projection, showing the symbols of a seafaring nation, directing the visitors to the exhibitions.

Every room has its own rhythm, beating in sync with its storyline: high and low tide, night and day, good and bad, hot and cold, the passing of time. The Gateway to the West, the room that focuses on local history, is turned into a night-time 4D theatre once an hour. The audio-visual theatre has visitors sit down in a lifeboat before taking them on a tempestuous journey through time.

For this project we engineered the show control for the 4D show, including immersive projection mapping, 9.1 surround audio, light and atmospheric effects.

To keep all projection technique on a high quality level throughout the years to come, we’ve integrated an automatic calibration system for the 11 laser-phosphor projectors which will keep all projections mapped pixel precise.
