After months of renovation, Baisha Bay Visitor Center reopened in November 2022! Kids and Adults can play with the interactive exhibits to learn more about Taiwan's north coast and its ecology through fun activities. Visitors can also enjoy an incredible 9K virtual reality scenic video of the Baisha Bay, shot using 360-degree photography techniques and presented with Optoma's advanced projection technology in the new immersive theater. After knowing more north coast, visitors can walk along Baisha Bay, flex their toes in the white sand, try to spot the creatures they've just learned about, and relax with nature.

4. Longtian Culture Heritage Area | Tainan City

Longtian Culture Heritage Area preserved old railway tracks, remnants of the weighing bridge, the historic Taiwan Salt Company Longtian Depot, and a cluster of warehouses. The Heritage Area was brought back to life with interactive installations and public art. Inside the North Warehouse is an immersive theater based on artist Satoshi Ito’s “Chianan Irrigation.” In interactive mode, the visitors interact with the elements in the projected painting. In theater mode, visitors can see the development of Chianan Irrigation unfolding with an immersive painterly video. Due to vibration caused by passing trains, Optoma paid extra attention to projection stability and precision during installation, and this immersive theater is well worth the effort!

5. Kaohsiung Music Center (KMC) | Kaihsiung City KMC is a landmark for pop music performances in Southern Taiwan offering regular music performances. Inside KMC, a permanent exhibition curated by Brightext titled "POP! POP! POP! An Interactive Journey" provides a compressive perspective on the history of Taiwan‘s pop music with elements of public curation, letting everyone share what pop music means to them. In this exhibition, multimedia is key. Optoma not only provided full projection planning but also challenged itself with “A Stream of Teleportation,” a ten-meter-long, record-shaped projection installation. With data provided by other visitors, visitors can choose and edit visual and audio cues to change how and what this projected soundscape will play. If you haven’t visited KMC before, remember to add it as a stop during your spring break travel plan!
