The WIDIVERSUM adventure land, which is located over 2,000 metres above sea level in the skiing area Hochoetz, Austia recently opened a new 180-degree 5D cinema, in which visitors can experience the world of “Widi“, the Oetztal mascot (an adventurous mountain sheep). The simulator attraction was realised by the German advertising and internet agency aufwind Group in cooperation with Austrian AV Stumpfl company. Ten persons at a time can enjoy the eight-minute-long WIDI adventure on a 180-degree projection screen. In addition, the attraction features multisensory effects as well as digitally steered flight and float moments.  

A simulator platform with a 360-degree swivel joint was installed for content playout. The “PIXERA“ mediasoftware with integrated “VIOSO“ auto calibration and “AVIO“ show control from AV Stumpfl is used for the video mapping. For the projections four short-throw 5000 lumen projectors from Optoma were installed in the attraction. (eap)
