What is a Water Screen?

A Water screen is when science, nature and creativity come together! Water screens are a fascinating illusion of engineered projection technology paired with playful design, and it uses one of nature’s elements as its showpiece.

If we want to talk in more technical terms, a water screen is a projection medium that uses a thin film of water to project video content, lasers, and other lighting effects onto its surface. The water screen’s unexpected and instant appearance surrealistically placed in a body of water can both surprise and enchant audiences.

Water Screen Options

For Water Screen installations there are two types of screens typically used, The Hydro Screen and The Jet Screen.

1. The Hydro Screen

The Hydro Screen creates a semi circular spray of water suitable for rear projection with lighting, laser and video. The Hydro Water Screen is created by two borehole pumps driving into a single nozzle. These screens are suitable for advertising, big brand activation launches, theme park and leisure attractions as well as large corporate events.

2. The Jet Screen

The Jet Screen consists of trident jet screen modules which can be used to create any width of screen. The Jet Screen gives much greater wind stability than a hydro screen, and is suitable for video, lighting and laser projection.
