LINYI, China – Christie's longstanding Chinese partner Wincomn Technology has delivered stunning visuals using the Christie® HS Series 1DLP® laser projectors for an integrated multimedia show at Dongyi Culture Museum in Linyi City, Shandong Province.
Touted as the first large-scale multimedia show in Shandong Province that incorporates projection, laser, fog and audio effects, the projection portion of "Da Mei Yi Song" (Tribute to the Great and Beautiful Dongyi culture) is accomplished by over 20 Christie D20WU-HS projectors displaying vivid and lifelike visuals on the outer walls of the museum. The visuals perfectly complemented the other multimedia elements to deliver an enchanting performance that accentuates the heritage and beauty of Dongyi culture, its origins dating back thousands of years.
Tony Chen, General Manager, Wincomn Technology, said, "Dongyi culture is an important source of Chinese civilization known for its independent system, unique style, continuity and long-lasting cultural influence. It holds an important historical position and has made huge contributions to the process of historical development and cultural creation in Chinese civilization. It is for these reasons that Wincomn sees much value in participating in the 'Da Mei Yi Song' multimedia show, and we are pleased to be involved in the design and installation works for the projection showcase."
Dongyi Culture Museum is surrounded by three curved outer walls that have uneven surfaces and varying heights, which resulted in challenges during the installation process, such as an irregular projection light path and occlusion. However, the Wincomn team overcame these issues with the Christie D20WU-HS projectors through simulation using an accurate three-dimensional model. Chen noted that the team managed to attain vivid visuals by utilizing the powerful depth of field processing capability of the HS Series projectors, while enabling the contents to be displayed in their entirety in a continuous and attractive manner.
In addition, there were very high expectations on the color reproduction and image quality of the projected visuals due to the huge projection canvas. The extensive use of reds for the show's contents also brought about challenges in color calibration.
"This is where the strengths of the Christie D20WU-HS really shone with its BoldColor Technology, which creates the color balance needed to reproduce colorful images, without sacrificing brightness. We also double-stacked the projectors and this arrangement enabled us to fully maximize the quality of the projected images on the large projection canvas," Chen added.
The results saw the D20WU-HS projectors delivering bright, accurate and realistic colors during the projection segment of the multimedia show, which drew audiences further into the story. Through the comprehensive application of other audiovisual elements, the show had a surreal quality filled with awe-inspiring effects, providing the audience with a fantastic visual experience.
Bryan Boehme, Executive Director, Global Sales & Business Development, Entertainment, Christie, commented, "Our partner Wincomn Technology has been known to push the boundaries of digital projection for many of its major projects across China. With the innovative deployment of our Christie D20WU-HS projectors for this large-scale multimedia show focusing on Dongyi culture, and putting the HS Series' capabilities such as BoldColor Technology to good use, Wincomn has demonstrated how technology can be harnessed to enhance the showcase of ancient history and culture through captivating visuals."
With a brightness of 20,000 lumens and weighing less than 100 pounds (42 kg), the Christie D20WU-HS is the lightest and brightest 1DLP® laser projector on the market. It offers a powerful, reliable and cost-effective option for almost any high-use application, and sets the benchmark in brightness, color accuracy, power requirements and form factor. Equipped with Christie's BoldColor Technology and WUXGA resolution, the D20WU-HS a viable alternative to similarly bright 3DLP projectors.
