Christie laser projections light up Yellow River Tower in Lanzhou

Christie, the global visual and audio technology company, contributed to a stunning light show at the Yellow River Tower in China with its laser projection technology.

Christie is pleased to announce that its laser projectors were used to light up an iconic watchtower overlooking China’s Yellow River in Lanzhou as part of a special light show, designed to promote the local culture and boost the tourism industry.

The 90-metre-high Yellow River Tower is the focus of a new night-time spectacular called The Great Lanzhou, which launched on 29 September ahead of the country’s 71st National Day celebrations. During the show, visitors can enjoy cutting-edge 3D projection mapping, as well as stage lighting, lasers, atmospheric effects and live performances.

This all comes together to tell the story of the Yellow River basin.
