Supplying 4.7 Million People with Dependable Power

Yangzhou’s vast electrical network is monitored using 16 Christie CS70-500XeF 1-chip DLP™ projection cubes in an 8x2 SXGA-resolution display configuration.

Christie’s FRC-5000 16-channel wall display controller manages the numerous signals from the networks and video cameras on the system grid. This power facility provides electrical service to East China’s city of Yangzhou in Jiangsu Province – a region of three jurisdictions, 6,638 square kilometers in size, and a population of 4.7 million people.

The Control Room Solution

Since opening its offices in Shanghai and Beijing, Christie's high performance projectors have been the display force behind major mission-critical control room installations in China, one of the latest being Yangzhou Electric Power Company.

The power company covers East China’s city of Yangzhou in Jiangsu Province – a region of three jurisdictions, 6,638 square kilometers in size, and a population of 4.7 million people.

This vast network is monitored using 16 Christie CS70-500XeF single-chip DLP™ projection cubes in an 8x2 SXGA-resolution display configuration. Christie’s FRC-5000 16-channel wall display controller manages the numerous signals from the networks and video cameras on the system grid.

Using a superior 500W CERMAX Xenon user-replaceable lamp, the CS70 projects over 700 cd/m2 (nits) ANSI brightness across each of the 70-inch high-contrast, high-gain screens. The Xenon illumination system is significant in providing and maintaining the brightness level across the display area.

The unique double speed, six-segment color wheel ensures long life and high reliability. Images are uniform, bright and color-matched across the entire 46-foot display as a result of Christie’s proprietary technologies such as LiteLOC™ lamp power control, primary color adjust and color uniformity adjust.
