Medina Azahara, outside Cordoba, was known as the “shining city”. Built in the late 900s, it was a Caliphate seat of great power and beauty.
The Spanish event specialist Congress System was charged with creating a spectacular projection mapping to celebrate the first anniversary of the city’s status as a UNESCO world heritage site. They focused their attention on the impressive portico of the Plaza de Armas.
To create a suitable effect while interfering as little as possible with the site, they called on two of the latest Barco UDX-4K32s for the ease of installation and superb color rendition.
The remarkable history of the site was told with 3D animations, photos and videos. An 8,000-watt sound system supported the soundtrack.
