Commissioned by Art’Otel hotel Amsterdam, MVIE Audiovisuele Techniek, together with Hugo Janzen AV Projecten, installed an innovative projection system. Here, WATCHOUT feeds 16 projectors on 2 projection surfaces in the staircase of the recently renovated hotel. The projection surfaces, which the public can walk through, are made from silicone wires that show the projection on both sides. The interactive creative content is produced by Present Plus.
In the Railwaymuseum Hulskamp Audiovisueel installed a WATCHOUT system that was used to make the award winning attraction ‘the Fire Test’.
The gardens of Linnaeus
For the Depot Sculpture Gallery Stijn van der Loo realised the documentary “the gardens of Linnaeus; Hinkeloord and the Dreijen” about the Arboretum in Wageningen, the Netherlands. This movie is shown over three screens with the aid of a single WATCHOUT computer with surround sound for an intense experience.

In a small realistic bus, sized to fit children, inside a real citybus, Judith Nab has created a 37 minute journey for a group of 30 small travellers. Watchout provides drawn and animated views in every direction from all around the world.
