About Us

Since our start in 2012, Chicago Projection Mapping has been a company with a singular purpose – to spread our passion for projection mapping to the world. Based in the heart of a Midwestern metropolis, we’ve been fortunate to engage with clients and audiences both across the country and internationally, but our vision remains the same. As our craft and global awareness of mapping continues to spread, we are thrilled to be a part of this cutting-edge medium, and to bring the unparalleled spectacle of projection mapping to new audiences worldwide.

The Company

Founded by an Emmy Award-winning team of media professionals, Chicago Projection Mapping is the Midwest’s leader in 3D and 4D projection and video mapping. Driven by equal dedication to bleeding-edge technology, innovative and compelling content, comprehensive customer service and peerless visual impact, CPM invites you to experience a calibre of performance and a quality of spectacle unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Choose a scene (Exterior or Interior), then select any element to learn more.

Exterior

Projection Mapping is at its most impressive and impactive when used to transform the exterior facade of a building.

Content

Our 3D exterior content starts with a 1:1 3D model of the building, designed within our software to be animated in 4K Ultra HD. Every surface of the building can be creatively incorporated into the design.

Mapping

High-end media servers provide the processing power behind an exterior display, manipulating the animation to create powerful "mapping illusions" that define this medium.

 

Projectors

Exterior projection requires the brightest projectors on the market. CPM specializes in selecting projection equipment that exceeds visual standards for your display.

Surface

The surface is the canvas for projection effects. An ideal building surface is white/off-white, matte/non-reflective, with few windows. Black, dark brick, and glass make for a challenging surface.

Audio

Top-quality audio accentuates the impact of mapping effects - for instance, heightening the visual of a building collapsing with the sound of falling stone - by spreading the illusion to multiple senses.

Interior

Projection Mapping can be used to elevate any interior stage or venue into a visual wonderland of infinite customization.

Content

Content made for interiors has the luxury of being appreciated close up. CPM's content creation incorporates 2D and 3D animation, photos, videos, procedural content, web generated media, and more.

Mapping

Custom programming allows the evening's content to transform as needs change. CPM media servers allow over sixteen HD projectors in sync to create immersive visual experiences.

Our team understands the "right" projector for every situation. We pride ourselves on selecting high-resolution, high-brightness projectors that deliver crisp and clear visuals, both live and documented.

Custom white staging elements can be infinitely realized as part of projection mapping. The more creative the stage, the more impactful the canvas for mapping.
