The Electric Canvas lights up the National Carillon with Christie Crimson projectors


The National Carillon, a 50‐meter high musical instrument, is situated in Australia’s national capital, Canberra. The iconic landmark’s unique tower like structure makes it an ideal venue for outdoor projections at night. It was for this reason that Christie’s valued Australian partner, The Electric Canvas (TEC) – well known for its experience and expertise in large scale events – was approached by the National Capital Authority (NCA) to develop architectural projections on the Carillon’s façade in support of National Reconciliation Week 2020. TEC surveyed the Carillon and created a wireframe model in order to plan a projection layout. With all preparatory work completed, the next important step was the selection of appropriate projection system s that could deliver the optimal visuals at all vantage points. TEC chose to deploy 12 Christie® Crimson 3DLP® laser projectors from its fleet to deliver the bright, impactful projections onto the Carillon. TEC set up four projection towers, with each of them housing three 25,000 lumen Christie Crimson WU25 laser projectors running in portrait mode. Media was handled by TEC’s Modulo Kinetic media server system with full hot back up. TEC was able to set up their site office in the comfort of the viewing gallery atop the Carillon and, from there, the operator could monitor the entire 360‐degree projection from cameras mounted in each of the projection towers.
