Water screen

The water screen, a magical projection effect on water !

Contact us

In total levitation in the air, emerging from the dark, appearing and disappearing, the water screen gives the image a surreal and mysterious character

This water effect developed by our engineers and patented by Aquatique Show at the end of the 80s, has been the highlight of many shows such as Fantasmic at Disney World, in the Seaworld parks in the United States, the water show on the lake at Futuroscope in Poitiers and Puy du Fou in France.
Its transparency creates a depth of field that integrates the real environment; the image then seems to be part of reality. Its volume gives a 3D impression to audiovisual projections, but also to lasers; Thus, the water screen allows mysterious and fantastic characters to emerge in the spectator's reality.
Available for rent for temporary events or for sale for permanent installations, the water screen can be installed on floating structures for an exploitation in a lake or at sea, but also in a pool.

Dimension of the water screen

The standard water screen rental dimensions allow projection on surfaces of +/- 6 meters and height of +/- 15 meters, with an opening of +/- 20 meters up to +/- 45 meters wide.

Water screen as background scenery

The water screen can be a perfect projection support for the presentation of a product, a brand, for a visual rather than a narrative communication. This water effect creates a unique and magical setting for your event, a living scenery background that is modifiable at will.

Water screen : invisible structure

Finally, the water screen will be the perfect multimedia option to integrate into an water, fireworks or other show, offering to see images without any visible infrastructure: a simply magical water effect.

In 2018, the Universal Studio theme park in Orlando, Florida has integrated 7 water screens into its water show as a tribute to cinema with screenings of the greatest Hollywood studio films, creating a projection facade of more than 150 meters behind the musical fountains.

Frequent questions about the Water screen



What are the dimensions of the water screen?

The water screen is a semi-circular surface whose length is 3 times the height.
For rent, we propose water screen heights up to 15 meters

What type of projection can be made on a water screen?

The water screen can receive video projection and laser projection. The pressurized and semicircular water surface of the water screen requires a specific, denser and precise projection content at the heart of the water screen where the quality is maximum.

Can the projection on water screen be done from the front?

Any projection on a water surface, thus on the water screen, must be done with rear projection to benefit from all the luminous power of the projector; the projector must be installed at the back of the water screen, facing the public, while taking care to avoid the hot spot.

Is the water screen wind resistant?

The water screen is subject to wind because its surface is composed of a pressurized water that is not as strong as the wind; the quality of the surface of the water screen will be proportional to the strength of the wind

Can we use a water screen in seawater?

The water screen can be used in seawater unlike our water curtains. For a long-term exploitation, however, it will be necessary to plan a rinsing of our equipment in fresh water.
On sale, we can propose equipment with materials adapted to the salinity of the water

What is the standard installation of a water screen?

The water screen can be installed in a receiving pool which must be longer than the length of the screen and wider than the height of the screen.
It can also be installed on our floating structures to be exploited at sea or in a lake, or in an existing pool or on a barge provided by you.

Can we use the water screen by daytime?

Like any other projection support, the projection on the water screen is not possible by day since the projector's light source is not powerful enough for daylight.

Can the water screen be used indoor/outdoor?

The water screen is designed for outdoor use.
With enough space for a large pool, and important ceiling heights, the water screen can sometimes be installed indoor.

Rear projection is necessary since front projection does not work on this type of screen, except with powerful projector and dark environment with no light interferences.

What is the difference between a water screen and an Aquavision water curtain?

The water screen is produced by water projected at very high pressure in a semi-circle from the surface of the water. The water screen can only be used outdoors. The Aquavision water curtain is created by water falling from distribution piping set at a height ranging from 1 to 30 meters. The Aquavision water curtains can be used indoors or outdoors.
