Online Glossary Simplifies 3D Video Mapping Terms for Agencies and Creatives

Agency Creative Collaboration for Projection Mapping - Chicago Projection Mapping
"This will help bring teams up to speed and communicate clearly about their objectives.” - J Matthew Nix, Project Lead for Chicago Projection Mapping.

Chicago Projection Mapping (CPM), a Chicagoland-based content and 3D projection company, announced today the release of a quick-reference glossary of terms for projection mapping. Written by the CPM team, the guide was designed for agencies, creative firms, and marketing groups looking to quickly bring themselves up to speed with the terms behind projection mapping. The glossary is available today through Chicago Projection Mapping’s website.

By using their years of experience within the projection mapping field, Chicago Projection Mapping created this glossary based on the terms a client is most likely to encounter in the span of a conventional mapping project. The glossary takes a no-nonsense approach by simplifying the terms of art into plain English, drawing on all aspects of the creative, mapping, and technical process. For event marketers looking to communicate clearly with an audio/visual team, or an ad agency striking out on their first project with a projection mapping company, everything from lumens to window treatments are explored and explained.

“By streamlining this glossary based on what a client is likely to encounter on an actual project, we’re creating the most practical guides on the internet,” said J Matthew Nix, Project Lead for Chicago Projection Mapping. “This will help bring teams up to speed and communicate clearly about their objectives.”

Chicago Projection Mapping continues 2014 with new permanent and promotional displays and installations. CPM remains at the forefront of Midwestern projection mapping, including architectural projection mapping, activations for event marketing, 3D and 4D video mapping displays, and projection mapping for trade shows and corporate events.
