Christie Light Up Landmarks in Hong Kong
Christie® together with its partner Avollusion, are presenting stunning light installations and video projections at various landmark sites and buildings during the Lumieres Hong Kong festival. Among the highlights is an eye-catching projection mapping performance on the façade of the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, one of the most exclusive luxury hotels in the world located on Connaught Road in Central. The projection canvas, measuring 34 meters in width and 33 meters in height, is lit using 10 Christie Boxer 4K30 3DLP® projectors, and managed by Christie Pandoras Box servers, with contents entirely designed and produced by Christie 360. The result is a highly entertaining show exemplified by bright, colorful and dynamic visuals. “Due to the scarcity of space, we have had to come up with unique solutions to counter the challenges of executing projection mapping projects in Hong Kong,” said Justin Choy, Managing Director, Avollusion.
