Laser projections charm visitors at Nanxun Old Town
Christie® laser projectors have revitalized Nanxun Old Town, with spectacular projections that brought a number of ancient structures to life, delighting visitors and raising its profile as a popular destination. To promote the town’s timeless beauty and transform it into a nighttime attraction, the provincial government engaged Quansheng Li, Lighting & Artistic Director of North China Municipal Engineering Design & Research Institute, to put together a multimedia show comprising digital projections, stage lighting, lasers, fog and water screen effects. The digital projections are accomplished using 17 Christie GS Series and HS Series 1DLP® laser projectors installed by Christie’s longstanding Chinese partner, Wincomn Technology. Christie’s GS and HS Series laser projectors met all the stringent requirements and emerged as the ideal systems for this installation.
The projectors are fitted in custom built enclosures to protect them from inclement weather and to ensure stable operation over the longer term. Among the main highlights of the multimedia show are stunning digital projections on the façades of the famous Baijianlou or “100 Houses Complex”, spanning over 100 meters. A fleet of Christie GS Series laser projectors, comprising the DWU850-GS and DWU1075-GS, are strategically installed on the opposite bank of the waterway to deliver bright and vivid visuals. Over at Tongjin Bridge, visitors are treated to a mesmerizing water screen show that showcases beautiful images such as swimming koi fish. Measuring 28 meters in length and 7 meters in height, Tongjin Bridge is the largest stone arch bridge in Nanxun Old Town, known for its distinctive semicircular design. Visuals displayed beneath the bridge are powered by Christie D13WU -HS laser projectors, each equipped with a brightness of 13,500 lumens and BoldColor Technology to enhance color accuracy and exhibit the most realistic colors. As well, the built-in Christie Twist® enables quick and easy alignment to deliver highly accurate and pin sharp images on the water screen.
