The health sciences park in Beijing, China, chose to use Christie technology for the immersive four-sided CAVE installation inside its new exhibition hall. This aims to showcase the evolution of health sciences and how they have benefitted people’s physical wellbeing.

Working with Christie’s partner Dicction (Beijing) Science and Technology Development Co. Ltd., the park opted for 10 Christie LWU900-DS 3LCD laser projectors, alongside a Christie Pandoras Box Player.

“This is an exciting installation that creates an immersive space featuring amazing visual details that elevates the viewing experience for visitors,” says Leo Zhang, chief executive officer, Dicction.

“We are proud to accomplish this CAVE installation using Christie’s leading-edge solutions that are designed to blend in perfectly with the environment to deliver truly outstanding images that enhance the overall theme of this unique space. Christie’s integrated solutions are chosen for this project as they are renowned for their performance, reliability and after-sales service.”

Advanced projector calibration

This particular CAVE setup was unconventional, being in a trapezoidal-shaped room. This meant that the project called for advanced projector alignment and calibration. The 10 Christie LWU900-DS laser projectors were strategically mounted on the ceiling, each of them covering an area measuring 6 meters long and 3.75 meters high.

“Since this is not a regular-shaped space, image processing is required for the visuals to be properly displayed. We have therefore deployed the Christie Pandoras Box Player to manage the playback, editing of displayed content, projected from the Christie LWU900-DS projectors. In addition, UPS power was installed to ensure uninterrupted operation and to improve energy efficiency,” says Zhang.

The small footprint and omnidirectional capability of the Christie projectors meant that Dicction had unlimited flexibility in installing them for this project. The combination of the projection technology and the high-performing software has led to the CAVE installation becoming a highlight of the exhibition hall, and one which the client was very pleased with.

April Qin, director of sales, Enterprise, Christie China, says, “Dicction has once again set a new standard in innovative CAVE installations with this latest project using Christie’s integrated solutions comprising the DS Series 3LCD laser projectors and Pandoras Box Player. The DS Series offers a combination of affordability, brightness, a truly superior warranty and a rich feature set. This proves that you don’t need to sacrifice performance for price.”

This Christie projector series is a budget-friendly, mid-brightness 3LCD laser projector and an ideal choice for small-to-medium applications. The DS Series is capable of delivering up to 9,000 lumens and 4,000,000:1 contrast ratio in WUXGA resolution and can display several different content types in detail.

Earlier this month, Christie also unveiled a new simpler and more powerful version of its Pandoras Box software for real-time video processing and show control.
