PaintScaping, a world leader in 3D projection mapping, will collaborate with Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America to create a 3D projection mapping on Winterthur, the 4th largest house in the United States, for the holiday season. At 96,582 sq. ft. and 175 rooms, Winterthur was the private home of Henry Francis du Pont, of the famous du Pont family. Now a museum, Winterthur will present the 12 days of Christmas 1920s style-show from December 1 to December 12, 2020. Attendees will be able to view the show outside while maintaining social distancing practices.

The Los Angeles-based PaintScaping is no stranger to high-profile projects. This summer, it produced the world’s first mapping on an operational rocket, at Cape Canaveral. In 2018, it created the largest mapping ever in the USA, for Britney Spears, in Las Vegas.

Similarly, Panasonic has a legacy of providing immersive entertainment experiences with cutting-edge projection technology. For Winterthur, PaintScaping will deploy the PT-RQ50KU 3-Chip DLP® SOLID SHINE laser projector, the world’s smallest 50,000 lumens 3-Chip DLP® SOLID SHINE projector with True 4K+ resolution. With the projector’s bright, crisp visuals and powerful color reproduction, guests will see the 12 days of Christmas come to life before their eyes.

“Although scale is important, it really is all about emotion. About bringing this incredible mansion to life, in ways people have never experienced,” says Philippe Bergeron, President and CEO of PaintScaping. Indeed, we will see du Pont preparing his yearly holiday event, which attracted the haute société from the East Coast.

“PaintScaping is exceptional at visual storytelling, and we are thrilled that Panasonic projection technology is able to bring their vision to life,” says Rob Goldberg, Sales Director–Visual Systems, Panasonic Systems Solution Company.

PaintScaping’s other famous – and infamous – mansions include the Winchester Mystery House, the Playboy Mansion, and Stan Hywet, the 20th largest mansion in the USA. Other iconic mappings include an enormous narrative show at the famed San Diego Zoo, voted #1 zoo on the planet; Rodeo Drive; Sony Pictures; Tiffany; Porsche; and Ritz-Carlton.
