Erdman Anthony was chosen by Madison Square Garden Entertainment (MSGE) to
scan and model the entire interior of Radio City Music Hall. This historic
setting is a landmark of the Art Deco movement in downtown Manhattan.
Erdman Anthony used two scanners over three days to collect over one billion
points in 46 scans. Following the scanning, modeling and registration took three
weeks. The finished model included features not common to typical survey
projects: organically shaped arches; 5,933 seats; and unique details such as
railings, house lighting, stage lighting, choral risers, signs, and speakers.
The final model was utilized by MSGE to design images for projection onto the
curved walls and ceilings. With the model, MSGE first used these images, without
distortion, in the production of the 2011 Radio City Christmas and New York
spectaculars. The producers now have the ability to simulate – in virtual
reality – the appearance of projections from every seat and possible vantage
point in the house.
