In celebration of the ‘Year of Zayed’, the UAE has welcomed yet again a new addition to its collection of record-breaking achievements.
The Wasl Asset Management Group organized the world’s largest aerial projection screen in commemoration of the UAE’s founding father.
Guinness World Records representatives also witnessed the landmark event.
Augmented reality tracking
The screen, which soared Dubai skies for 90 minutes, measured a whopping 42.15 meters by 92.49 meters. To make this iconic incident possible, a range of augmented reality tracking and live projection mapping, reported Gulf News.
The screened video displayed a short film about the Year of Zayed. With a Bell 212 helicopter projecting the video onto the blank screen, residents around the emirates were able to watch the floating display anywhere within a 3km radius from the statement piece.
Speaking to the newspaper, CEO of Wasl Asset Management Group, Hesham al-Qasim, said: “We are delighted to have celebrated the ‘Year of Zayed 2018’ in a memorable and ambitious way that captures the late founding father’s pioneering spirit and strengthens Dubai’s reputation as a leader in achieving world firsts.”
