Further examples of his recent work:

2009 - Jan was involved for several months in initial consultations for an unusual and very high-resolution project, the Saudi Arabia pavilion, to be built for the Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China, featuring the world's largest single projection screen composed of 20+ HD projections.

His report was used as the basis of evaluating the actual production, technical, and budgeting requirements, for creating and producing content for such a large screen, and to give the client a clear direction in how to realize their vision. Inside the pavilion, as it has now been completed, the actual enormous featured screen can be seen in these YouTube clips:
