Conception and Planning
Selecting an Image
There are three main configurations of ceiling images available for MRI and CT Rooms; 6 Panel Rectangular, 8 Panel Square, and 9 Panel Cascading. There is a standard range of images available to licence that suit each configuration, and an option to commission a personalized images based on your preferences.
A commissioned image will generally take longer to acquire and there will be consultation and planning involved to create an image. The standard range of images have been captured, processed, and quality assured, ready to be printed immediately.
Once you have selected an image send through the image code. The image will then be proofed and checked for suitability with your room layout.
Stock images are captured from pretty much anywhere I travel as a camera is always in hand. If the weather is good and I find an interesting landscape I will look for the composition and capture it in high resolution.
Commissioned images are generally reserved for the Cascading Images, however commissioned standard size ceiling images can be created. After deciding on the image scope and general location in Australia and New Zealand. I then start scouting suitable locations and researching best times and conditions to shoot.
Once onsite I will work through the best compositions to showcase the main subject while obtaining the best composition to give the effect of a canopy overhead.
Post Production and Proofing
Once I have captured the scene from all angles, the image files are uploaded and backed up prior to sorting. Stock images may contain several images in order to maintain colour, contrast, shadows, highlights, and fine details.
Each cascading image generally consists of 20 to 100 images which are stitched using state of the art software to provide a distortion free vertical panoramic image. Once the image is together I will then enhance the scene as needed before combing through to ensure there are no technical defects such as chromatic aberrations, ghosting, flares, and artifacts.
Prior to printing you will be sent a proof image to approve before the image is sent to the printers.
Print and Delivery
When selecting an image you are purchasing the rights to print a copy of the image, you will not receive a digital file unless it is in the agreement for a commissioned piece.
The final image is delivered and installed in your room as a complete lighting system. For MRI rooms this consists of MRI compatible LED lights, light boxes and the printed image. CT Rooms and other modalities are similar in installation using conventional LED panel lights.
Images are printed by one of the leading Brisbane sign writers with diffused films applied to perspex. The perspex images are quality checked before they are sent to site to be installed.
