Christie Enthralls Visitors With a Real-Life Ship Sailing Experience at Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea Fishery Experience Zone

YEOSU, Korea – (August 10, 2012) – Christie® immersive technology simulates a close-to-real-life 4D stormy sea scenario at the Fishery Experience Zone of Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea where visitors are empowered to navigate the ship as a captain.

Christie’s immersive technology, provided by four Christie DWU670-E WUXGA 1-chip DLP® projectors, is housed within a 2000-ton ship in the Energy Park to showcase a 4D simulation of a ship sailing in the waterfront of Yeosu. After a presentation on traditional and modern shipping, the presenter invites visitors to the dock to navigate and steer the ship amidst high tidal wave and sea traffic in a role-playing scenario.

“The Fisheries Experience Zone promotes the need for marine ecosystem restoration, and provides opportunities to learn about the marine fisheries industry. Shipping is an inseparable part of the marine culture. To enhance a visitor’s experience at the zone, we rebuilt a 2000-ton ship and installed Christie’s projectors to simulate a stormy sea. Thanks to Christie’s immersive technology, the stormy-sea scenario turns out close to reality,” acknowledged Dae-Jae, Ji, manager, Fisheries Experience Zone.

“The Fisheries Experience Zone presented the many possibilities of Christie’s visual technology that go beyond cinematic art,” commented Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. “This is where we fully realize the potential of visual technology in helping mankind to simulate real-life scenarios and how to deal with them. Christie’s immersive technology has been very successful in providing these simulation scenarios for the defence, medical and education industries, to name a few.”
