By combining the strengths of ARISTA’s Video Projection Mapping Turnkey System, which incorporates a 4U rack mount computer powered by an Intel Xeon 10-core processor combined with the company’s ARD-5816 HDBaseT transmitter, ARISTA brings a compact, powerful, all-in-one technological solution to the video projection mapping environment. The creative expertise of TLC Creative, which creates the jaw-dropping moments that push the boundaries of entertainment production, compliments Arista’s technical expertise.

Video projection mapping is a projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. These objects may be complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings, small indoor objects, or theatrical stages. TLC Creative has proudly provided innovative event impact for 40 years, with light-up wristbands, award-winning reveals, projection mapping, and live special effects entertainment. TLC’s custom designed effects and shows have been featured at live events of every kind, and on tv and media around the globe.

Kevin Bilida, TLC Creative’s CEO / Owner, commented on his company’s new strategic partnership with ARISTA Corporation, “The creative possibilities for video production made possible by projection mapping technology are pushing the boundaries of art and technology in new directions. With Arista’s compact and highly capable projection mapping system, much of the guesswork commonly encountered as part of the creative process is minimized. At TLC, we believe this partnership will enable us to take projection mapping to an even higher level and, as more people get exposed to the artistic and technological power of projection mapping, the entire industry benefits.”

Paul Shu, President of ARISTA Corporation, shares Ward’s enthusiasm, “Projection mapping offers entertainment and facility design professionals a unique opportunity to take even the most ordinary external building façade or multi-purpose spaces and turn these areas into brilliantly lit, eye-popping environments. By combining the visions of the artistically inclined with our projection mapping system, the results can be visually stunning—fosters even greater creativity in the process. All of us at ARISTA are pleased to be working with TLC Creative to further the unlimited creative potential of projection mapping technology.”
