Onionlab created an immersive 360-degree video for the Cloud City stand at the Mobile World Congress 2021, in collaboration with Landscapes art agency.
The video, projected on the four walls and the floor of a 215m2 room that was located in the stand, created a truly immersive audiovisual experience for the visitors.
The projection combined visual effects such as mapping and particles, created with X-Particles and Notch along with footage and texts that synthesized the innovation that the Public Cloud offered to telecommunication operators.
The projection was carried out with the Modulo Pi media player and with 16 projectors of 14,000 lumens.
