Christie projection front stage at Miami Beach’s impressive New World Center
Spectacular, impressive, amazing – all of these adjectives have been used to excess in the past few weeks while patrons and critics alike discover the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center in Miami Beach. And it’s little wonder. The campus for the New World Symphony training institute boasts cutting-edge Christie projection systems throughout the 100,000 square foot facility, and the technical capabilities of the center are truly ground breaking.
What truly sets the concert hall apart is its unequalled video-projection capacity: A computer-synchronized system that can project moving images on five broad, sail-like ceiling panels from 10 Christie 30,000 ANSI lumen projectors, allowing composers and artists to fully integrate music and video. The sails help to make the room the most sophisticated symphony hall yet for assimilating video into a live musical experience. In addition to this, 5 Christie Roadie HD+30K 3-chip DLP® projectors can feed live concert images to an outdoor venue – the Miami Beach SoundScape Park, adjacent to the New World Center - and onto the 7000 square foot, six-story projection wall. The Center has even coined the phrase “Wallcast®” to describe this exciting new exhibition option.
