an interactive game experience.

The 2013 European Shell Eco-marathon, held at the Ahoy in Rotterdam saw XL Events work with creative agency Imagination to supply an AV package to produce an interactive game experience.

The event, held annually in Europe, America and Asia, is a competition for science, design, engineering and technology students is to design, build and drive the ultimate energy efficient vehicle.

More than 50,000 visitors attended the event, which saw XL supply a video system for one exhibit for the ‘Stress Nexus’, an interactive game based on National Geographic questions.

Questions were triggered wirelessly by the host via a touch screen tablet and displayed on to an 8×4.5m screen via XL’s Barco HDF W26 projectors. Competitors had 10 seconds to select an answer and physically move into their chosen answer zone.

Their movements were tracked using cameras and software, linked to Pandora’s Box HD Pro media servers, allowing real-time answer percentages to be displayed on-screen.

Once the correct answer was revealed, data was stored and collated on the media servers to reveal the overall result of each game. Lighting states and audio for the game were triggered via MIDI from the Pandora’s Box media servers.

Audio for the challenge was also supplied by XL, with D&B Q7’s and E18 sub speakers, a Shure Q5 radio microphone system, and DPA microphones all controlled by a Yamaha LS9 mixing desk.
