Global visual and audio technologies company, Christie Digital Systems, has provided projectors to a new national heritage park in China’s Henan province.
The five Christie GS Series laser phosphor projectors provide an impressive back drop to a 130 square meter sand table model of the ancient city of Luoyang.
The 1:800 scale model is located in the Sui and Tang Luoyang City National Heritage park that contains full scale reconstruction of the original nine story Ming Tang and Tian Tang Towers.
Full HD resolution brings life-like visuals such as blue skies, birds in flight, ships sailing on the river and mountains in the background to life on the projected backdrop of the model, installed by Christie’s partner Wincomn Technology.
"The end user decided on Christie projectors due to their impressive performance, outstanding track record in China and numerous accolades, " said Tony Chen, General Manager, Wincomn Technology.
"The deciding factor was its 20, 000 hours of low-cost operation, which was exactly what the end user was looking for. At the same time, the GS Series' other advantages such as long-lasting brightness, accurate colour reproduction, image quality, 24/7 reliability, as well as blending and warping capabilities for curved surfaces, make it the perfect projection solution for such location-based entertainment venues, " he added.
Lin Yu, Vice President, Christie Asia Pacific, commented, "We are honoured and excited that our GS Series laser phosphor projectors are selected for use in the new Sui and Tang Luoyang City National Heritage Park. At the same time, we're very pleased to work closely with our valued partner Wincomn Technology on the installation".
“Over the last few years, interest in lampless projectors has been increasing within the ProAV industry and Christie is well-positioned to deliver these high quality and reliable products to the market. We are optimistic that visitors at this new attraction will be able to appreciate the rich history and heritage of the Sui and Tang Dynasties through these mesmerising visuals."
