Video mapping refers to a process where there is use of special computer software to create a special theme which can be cast onto any surface by a projector to achieve images and motion pictures that can be used to display a particular activity. The difference between video mapping and normal projection is the fact that this method uses any surface even if it is rugged to map the images and videos on as opposed to traditional projection which only works if the target surface is white and also flat. The projected images and videos can also have underlying narrations or audio content which will help to pass the message to the audience for them to understand what is being displayed.
There are many areas where projection mapping can be used when there is a large group of people waiting to be communicated to by the interested individual or company.
