Spatial Requirements

Spatial Requirements

The MK devices can be used in a wide range of indoor spaces with controlled lighting: bedroom, living room, classroom, hotel room, hospital room, trade fair booth, lobby, fitness center, dome, …

Spatial requirements

  1. Area: 10-100 m2
  2. Ceiling height: 2.5 - 3.5 m
  3. Lighting: Complete darkness
  4. Projection surface:
    1. Planar or curved
    2. Smooth and even surface
    3. White or light grey color
    4. Reduced furnishing
    5. Do not project over windows, glass or reflecting materials

MK device and viewer positions

  1. MK device position: directly opposite and perpendicular to main projection wall. The main projection wall should be the one with the largest dimensions.
  2. Distance to main projection wall: 2,5 - 7 m
  3. Viewer: seated in front of or standing next to the MK device facing the main projection wall.

Operating conditions

  1. Use in dry, clean and ventilated environments
  2. Ambient temperature: 12-28°C (54-82°F)
  3. Ambient humidity: max. 70%
  4. Max continued use time: 8h

Dome Projection

The MK device is suitable for dome projection and has been tested with 6-12m domes.

Place the MK device against the dome's wall next to the entrance and facing the back of the dome. The image will cover most of the dome leaving a small halo surrounding the MK device without projection.

Set the warping preset to "Dome" using the MXControl. Depending on the characteristics of the dome, the vertical offset of the integrated projector module may need to be adapted. Please inform us prior to purchase if you plan to use the MK device mainly in a dome so we may preconfigure the unit accordingly.

The MK device is not compatible will content in Fulldome format, but the pre-loaded or user provided 360° videos will display correctly in a dome.

Using multiple MK device units

Two or more MK units can be used simultaneously to project over a larger surface. 

The MK units are synchronized over local network.
One unit acts as "Master" and the other as "Slaves".
The video transport and 360° navigation funtions are passed on from the "Master" to all the "Slaves".
The initial view point and warping configurations are defined for each unit.

All the MK units must be connected to the same WiFi network or router over Ethernet cable (recommended).
All the MK units must be configured remotely to allow multiple device projection. 

Please note the edge blending will not be perfectly accurate, seams and some deformation may appear when projecting a 360° image using 2 MK units back to back.

Space design and construction

Broomx does not provide consulting for designing or building a space for using the MK devices. Too many factors come into play such as type of content, user profile, budget, technical conditions, lighting conditions, etc.

Our Barcelona showroom has been designed with optimal conditions under the following specifications:
  1. Width: 8m
  2. Depth: 5m
  3. Height: 3m
  4. Lighting: complete darkness
  5. Corners: rounded with diameter 50cm
