Walking with elephants is a reality with Christie projection

When the San Diego Zoo wanted to enhance their visitors’ experience with their Elephant Encounters exhibit, Christie answered the call and an Elephant Odyssey was born!

A single Christe HD10K-M was selected to do the job. The projector was mounted in the middle of the tunnel in a custom Chase enclosure with a plexiglas sheet in front to protect it from patrons reaching into the beam of light. A Mac-based computer was installed and integrated as the platform for audio and video content, while an A/V rack located on one end of the tunnel in a room with AMX control QSC amplifiers, as well as 8 surroundsound Bose speakers in the tunnel all add to the experience.
