4youreye and Rezac employed PIXERA media servers for this year’s most anticipated charity fund raising event in Austria, Austria for Life, which involved complex media playout and advanced projection mapping setups. The Austrian landmark par excellence, the Stephansdom cathedral in Vienna, was beaming not just with the enthusiasm of the countless helpers on the 28th May, but also due to the impressive usage of modern media playout display technologies. The 90‐minute‐long live TV charity fundraising show was broadcast on ORF 2 and Krone.tv. The project, which had been initiated by the LIFE+ chairman Gery Keszler, supports the aid organizations Caritas, Diakonie, Hilfswerk, Red Cross, Samariterbund and Volkshilfe. LIFE+ itself supports socially relevant projects that fight epidemic diseases and helps people impacted by them. A variety of well‐known Austrian artists invited the Austria for Life audience to follow them on a trip through Austria’s past, that highlighted the different ways in which the country had successfully dealt with great challenges throughout the centuries. The Stephansdom’s complete south view was bathed in spectacular video content and light, courtesy of a large number of acclaimed visual artists, using Christie projectors. A large 200m2 LED display acted as a frame for the stage and visually connected the cathedral and the cathedral square below.
