SHANGHAI – Christie® and its distributor Zhongqing Yingye Group are jointly organizing a series of roadshows across nine cities to showcase its latest projection and integrated solutions for various applications including cultural tourism, staging and performing arts, theme parks and attractions, corporate venues and showrooms, as well as museums and science centers.
Targeted at prospective clients from various industries across China, the roadshows will be held in Guangzhou, Beijing, Nanjing, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Changsha, Hangzhou, Jinan and Xi'an over a three-month period beginning May 17. This is the second year that Christie is bringing its suite of leading-edge projectors, content management, image processing and automated calibration software solutions directly to clients following a highly successful tour in five cities last year.
"These roadshows had been tremendously popular as we're literally showcasing our newest technologies right at the doorsteps of our customers, allowing them to experience our products and solutions like never before," said Michael Bosworth, executive vice president, Enterprise, Christie. "We see a lot of value in organizing these roadshows. Not only can we maintain close ties with our partners and old friends, they also provide us with opportunities to reach out to new customers, reaffirm our strong commitment to this marketplace, and strengthen our brand presence."
Attendees can check out Christie's state-of-the-art projection solutions, including the high-performance Christie Griffyn 4K32-RGB pure laser projector equipped with 34,000 lumens while operating at less than 46dBA at full brightness. Designed for demanding large venue applications, it features an all-in-one design, omnidirectional capability and an exceptionally wide color gamut, achieving more than 96% of the Rec. 2020 color space for rich, vibrant and true-to-life visuals.
Another highlight is a tech preview of the upcoming Christie Inspire Series laser projector. Designed for showrooms, training centers, and meeting rooms, the Inspire Series has brightness options of up to 9,600 ISO lumens, and provides up to 20,000 hours of reliable, virtually maintenance-free operation for a worry-free, low total cost of ownership. Together with the tried-and-tested GS Series and HS Series, these 1DLP® laser projectors offer powerful, reliable and cost-effective options for almost any high-use application.
Also on show is a fascinating 3D projection mapping demonstration on a model of an ancient tower measuring 6 meters in length and 3 meters in height, made possible using three 20,000-lumen Christie HS Series 1DLP® laser projectors, Christie Pandoras Box and Christie Mystique – an automated camera-based alignment and recalibration solution, enables users to quickly install, align, calibrate and maintain multi-projector systems.
A captivating half dome projection further demonstrates the prowess of Mystique as images displayed on complex screen shapes and surfaces are swiftly aligned in minutes, instead of hours. As well, Mystique can be integrated directly with Christie Pandoras Box for real-time video processing and show control. Pandoras Box products have been used at various events and installations in China, such as the Yellow River Tower light show in Lanzhou, Light & Shadow Cube 3D immersive visualization project in Qingdao, and the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup opening ceremony in Beijing.
