Special-event specific content creation, paired with strategic design of the optimal infrastructure and placement of the baseball-field projection installation was essential for a successful presentation following the Home Run Derby.
It included highlights from that evening’s Home Run Derby, including recap, recognition and close-ups of the evening’s most memorable players and events, and Washington, D.C. landmarks.

Innovation for Immersive Live Events
Quince Imaging designed a custom media server solution, configuring full 3D- workflow with all virtual projection and cameras within the 3D environment to obtain optimal projection on the field.
Additionally, Quince created premium 3D animated content, complete with iconic Washington D.C. artifacts, as well as recap, recognition and close-ups of the evening’s most memorable players and events. Major League Baseball first began inquiring about deployment of projection image mapping at baseball venues in 2016, when the Washington Nationals connected with Quince Imaging to design a creative concept for Nationals Park. That start eventually resulted in MLB’s decision to select projection image mapping following the Derby, setting a milestone as the premiere image-mapping event in the history of Major League Baseball.
The biggest difference between standard arena activation and a field activation is media server configuration. Syncing the full 3D-workflow with all virtual projection and cameras within the 3D environment is key. In an arena environment, the overhead rigging allows for additional projector and camera angles that are not available on the field. Using 3D workflow allows us to account for the extreme angles in advance, reducing alignment time onsite.
