Date and Client


These AirOrbs, measuring approximately 100 cm in diameter and filled with helium, featured eight electric motors and small LED markers. ABC Event Production meticulously choreographed their flights, ensuring seamless interaction with a massive LED screen.


To achieve this precision, a specialized optical tracking system was employed to track and guide the AirOrbs along predefined flight paths. A network of 27 strategically positioned cameras around the venue ensured the flawless synchronization between the ten AirOrbs, the LED screen visuals, and the performers, resulting in a remarkable spectacle.
