Christie Technology Displays Northern Lights Across Canada’s Parliament Hill

New projection mapping show continues celebration of Canadian nation building, partnership, discovery, valour, pride and vision
Posted 2/16/2016

The ‘Northern Lights’ will be visible on Canada’s Parliament buildings again this summer thanks to a striking new projection mapping show delivered by 17 Christie® 3DLP®​ projectors with content provided by id3. The half hour ‘Northern Lights’ show celebrates Canadian history, achievements, the majesty of its vast landscape and the diversity of its people. The 2016 show runs from July 9 to September 10.


With this revised mapping, ‘Northern Lights’ is twice as bright with twice the contrast compared with its predecessor ‘Mosaika​’ - which used nine Christie projectors. The new presentation immerses the audience into the Canadian experience with a 7.1 audio track with full narration, 44 moving lights and over 100 LED lights. This thrilling thematic journey through Canada’s history unfolds on the 472-feet long, six-story high Parliament Building and 302-feet tall Peace Tower.
