AKUMENDO and its partner ArScénique unveiled the future of the immersive image on board yachts with the architecting of a 16m immersive LED Tunnel installed on board SY ARTEXPLORER, a Sailing catamaran of 47m.  It is built at ADMIRAL shipyards – TISG and represented by FRASER YACHTS Projects Management Team.

The boat will host an itinerant digital art museum exhibition offered by the Art Explora foundation, around the Mediterranean sea from October 2023 and then to other destinations and continents.

 AKUMENDO knew how to design and implement a unique technical solution bringing to the extraordinary collective adventure of Art Explora and its museum boat, which will crisscross the seas and oceans to meet the public, an unprecedented artistic experience.

During their visit to the METS 2022 in Amsterdam, Bruno Julliard Director of the Art Explora foundation and Philippe Rivière Digital Director in charge of the Digital Strategy told us that 12 months ago the service providers consulted, despite the experience and references presented to Superyacht shipyards, only offered them a projection of images on large screens, far away to seduce the ambitions of Frédéric JOUSSET, founding president of the philanthropic foundation Art Explora. Indeed Art Explora wishes to provide free and open access to immersive and sound experiences.

Art Explora was approached by Akumendo, the AV/IT partner of Fraser yachts for the Entertainment part of the ARTEXPLORER boat, with its partner ArScénique they offered a 3m2 outdoor LED screen, an immersive LED tunnel 16m long and 5m wide and 2m2 LED screens at each end. Founder of AKUMENDO, Jean-Pierre CASANOVA cannot veil his satisfaction regarding the interest shown by superyacht industry representatives having visited on the show. “AKUMENDO brings its know-how and an unlimited offer of tailor-made proposals: We provide new audio visual experience for Entertainment, Art, Gaming, using indoor or outdoor screens. It can be on Classic Yachts, Explorer Yachts, Shadows boats to view images of live events, private content like NFT, Yacht on board movies (drones, submarines, Personal Watercraft ) they are full of possibilities of application. A new era of immersive images is coming aboard yachts. The technology offered by Leyard makes it possible to respond to very specific technical constraints such as limited space, vibrations, and to fit curved displays on walls or ceilings. Art Explora Foundation have allow our group to achieve a fantastic project”.

In collaboration with the ADMIRAL TISG construction yard located in Marina di Carrara in Italy and under the supervision of Fraser Yachts Projects Management Team, in charge of the construction management and the operational management of the boat, AKUMENDO achieved the performance to integrate a 16m long immersive LED tunnel which will fit the interior shapes of the 47m Catamaran lounge intended to welcome visitors. For this true technical prowess AKUMENDO, ArScénique and LEYARD skilled engineers team have been able to meet the specific constraints of the boat thanks to theirexperience. They brought Creativity, attention to detail, precision, ergonomics and visual comfort in order to provide to the visitors the LED display able to offer a truly immersive experience. It is an incomparable shape for an LED Tunnel of this size, installed on a convex structure treated in aluminum alloy and providing rigidity and flexibility. Hundreds of Carbon Light CLI-FLEX LEDs panels with a Dot Pitch of 1.5 (distance between two contiguous pixels on a screen) will be installed on shock absorbers to dampen vibrations and accept forces of up to 29.46 m/s, i.e the equivalent of a thrust of 3G.

Thanks to its partnership and collaboration with SON VIDEO, ARSCENIQUE, CONNECTING TECHNOLOGY, CRESTRON, LEYARD, AKUMENDO design very promising and custom innovative projects.
