Christie display technology impresses the crowds at Barfoot & Thompson’s 90th birthday extravaganza

Christie Roadster Series projectors created a 360-degree projection mapping during the event in New Zealand

As the sun sets over the majestic Sky Tower in downtown Auckland, the ASB Showgrounds located next to the city’s scenic Cornwall Park is buzzing with activity as thousands of invited guests stream in for an unforgettable night of festivities to mark the 90th birthday of New Zealand’s leading real estate company, Barfoot & Thompson.

Besides tucking in to a sumptuous meal and flavorsome beverages, the 4,000 guests were treated to a spectacular 360-degree projection mapping show that not only recounted the rich history and accomplishments of the company, but also showcased exciting and stimulating visuals that impressed everyone who were there. The 360-degree screen created a seamless background of various scenic and iconic landmarks of New Zealand as live musicians welcomed the guests with an animated ensemble. During a live performance of New Zealand’s national anthem, the projections changed into waving flags, accompanying the patriotic vibe.

To ensure that all guests around the room were able to witness the activities on stage, live feed broadcasting was displayed on the screens. As the familiar tune of the Happy Birthday Song was played during the cake-cutting ceremony, the images onscreen transformed into large birthday candles that created an immersive environment for the guests who joined in the tradition of blowing out the candles. Projections of an impressive fireworks display ended the evening’s celebrations in a literal big bang.
