Mercedes AMG Petronas fitted with Epson’s high brightness laser projection
Brackley in West Northamptonshire is the home to the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team, a state-of-the-art technology centre covering an area of 60,000 square metres facilitating the design, development, manufacturing, assembly and operation of Championship-winning Formula One cars.
In March 2021, the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team completed an 18-month project to revamp the Race Bays of their facility in order to maintain the cutting-edge prestige of their facilities. Located on the ground floor of the centre, the Race Bays are used for the car builds, as well as companywide debriefs after each race weekend, new announcements, celebrations and so on.
At the start of the project, Epson looked at installing its highest brightness laser projector, the EB-L25000U, but as the project progressed Epson released the even brighter 30,000-lumen projector, the EB-L30000U, which key partner Tateside, gladly apportioned to this project. As such, Tateside became the first to install Epson’s highest brightness laser projector across the whole of Europe.
Bobby Van Druff, Business Support Operations Director, Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team: “Epson have been a long-serving and integral partner to our Team. Since 2015 we have enjoyed many successes together and through their technology have been able to operate more efficiently, bring our people together, and enhance our AV capabilities. Being able to work closely with Epson during the implementation of the EB-L30000U has allowed us to showcase it in its most practical and aesthetic manner.”
