San Diego Zoo

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.

“It was clear to the decision makers and our staff that the Christie projector was best suited for this environment.”
