Performance for opennig ceremony of 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia

For the opening and closing ceremonies of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, The Electric Canvas, Australian company specialising in large-scale projections, managed the AV projection by relying on Modulo Pi’s media server,Modulo Kinetic.

The 21st Commonwealth Games took place in April 2018 at the Carrara stadium in Queensland, Australia. Produced by Jack Morton Worldwide, the opening and closing ceremonies were shows with 4.000 volunteer performers.  Combining theatre, dance, and music, the shows were created to reflect the Gold Coast culture.

After winning the tender, The Electric Canvas prepared the event over six months. To achieve the large-scale video projection in the stadium, it chose 20 x Christie Boxer projectors, as well as Modulo Kinetic.

Peter Milne, director of The Electric Canvas, said: “I’ve been involved with Yannick Kohn - founder of Modulo Pi - and his technology for nearly 20 years now. When he launched Modulo Pi in 2010, we were very keen on adopting his latest system, Modulo Player”.
