SINGAPORE – (June 2, 2015) – Christie®, a global leader in visual display solutions, and its valued partner Total Solution Marketing are jointly showcasing advanced visual solutions for various applications at the annual BroadcastAsia 2015, taking place at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, June 2-5.

At Total Solution Marketing’s booth 4D2-19, Christie is featuring industry-leading DLP® technology and solutions that offer superb performance, backed by years of proven industry experience and technical expertise. Visitors at the booth can check out how the Christie Roadster HD14K-M and Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3DLP® projectors are deployed to present an eye-catching projection mapping showcase and real-time tracking ID-tags driven by the coolux® Pandoras Box Media Server.

Two Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors are used for projection mapping and touch-free interactivity via the coolux AirScan system on a 3D surface, while two Christie Roadster HD14K-M projectors are set up for a fascinating demonstration of interactive floor projections and stage tracking using specially-designed real-time tracking ID-tags controlled by the Pandoras Box Media Server.

“The coolux Pandoras Box Media Server and Christie Roadster Series projectors are the perfect combinations to stretch the boundaries of possibility to create spectacular, colorful images and giving lighting and stage designers the freedom to turn dreams into reality,” said Glenn Wong, managing director, Total Solution Marketing. “We are proud to collaborate with Christie once again at this year’s event to showcase the high performance link between projection and digital image compositing offered by coolux media servers. I’m confident that the high quality contents and visuals generated will impress visitors of BroadcastAsia.”

Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, commented, “We’re pleased to work with our dedicated partner, Total Solution Marketing, to showcase the powerful coolux media servers and our visual solutions together in such an innovative manner at BroadcastAsia 2015. Now that coolux is part of the Christie family, there is greater synergy to helping our customers transform their visions into reality. Through Total Solution Marketing, we are committed to serving the end-users more fully and to increase the total value-added offering, which include simplifying projection mapping workflows specifically and improving the creation of compelling large-scale, multimedia experiences in general.”

Christie, which acquired coolux earlier this year, has forged a closer partnership with Total Solution Marketing – distributor of coolux products in ASEAN – to offer a more comprehensive range of visual solutions to rental stagers and owners of performing venues. This collaboration elevates Total Solution Marketing to the status of an authorized partner where it can provide Christie visual solutions, such as 3DLP® projectors, with coolux media servers, as a complete package to perspective clients for various applications.

The award-winning coolux Pandoras Box Media Server system offers the best high performance link between projection and digital image compositing. It is a turnkey solution that perfectly unites state-of-the-art rendering technology with intuitive media and show control, and features the most powerful render-engine that offers real-time compositing in 3D, and allows for projection onto any shape and any surface.

Equipped with DLP® technology, high-quality optics and 10-bit image processing, the Christie Roadster Series projectors use light efficiently to ensure brightness uniformity throughout the images when projected onto irregularly-shaped ‘screens’ such as buildings, interior spaces and natural landscapes. Embedded with Christie Twist, the projectors allow users to expertly edge-blend and warp multiple curved images seamlessly.

Combined with the scalable and reliable Pandoras Box Media Servers, Christie Roadster projectors deliver crisp, clean images with perfect color saturation and spectacular video that create fully immersive visual experiences. Besides being showcased at BroadcastAsia 2015, the Pandoras Box Media Servers and Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors will also be deployed extensively for an impressive projection mapping display during the opening ceremony of a major Southeast Asian sporting event to be held in Singapore on June 5, 2015.
