Coperion K 2013

Two global leaders are pooling their expertise. K-Tron is becoming Coperion K-Tron. The introduction and presentation of this new network was the main task of the current 'K Show' in Düsseldorf.

For this purpose, designandsystems developed an interactive wall with a spherical projection as central element. An interactive globe in the center provides localized knowledge and global information graphics regarding different topics.

By using a touch interface close to the wall, visitors were able to interact with the contents shown – by this, the immersive impression of the huge panorama (14 x 6 meters) became not only a great visual impact on the booth, but was also fully controllable by the audience. The application was deployed to the wall using three projectors with a total resolution of 5760 x 1200 pixels. The software, which was made with openFrameworks, features enhanced 3d-rendering methods in order to provide a maximum of visual quality and detail for such a huge projection.

Besides the main presentation, designandsystems developed several interactive plant and product simulations to allocate detailed information of all coperion products. Also, the Augmented-Reality delivery programme was presented in an extended version.
