Wincomn Technology deploys Christie HS projectors at Dongyi Culture Museum
Wincomn Technology has delivered stunning visuals using the Christie® HS Series 1DLP® laser projectors for an integrated multimedia show at Dongyi Culture Museum in Linyi City, Shandong Province. Touted as the first large-scale multimedia show in Shandong Province that incorporates projection, laser, fog and audio effects, the projection is accomplished by over 20 Christie D20WU-HS projectors displaying vivid and lifelike visuals on the outer walls of the museum. Dongyi Culture Museum is surrounded by three curved outer walls that have uneven surfaces and varying heights, which resulted in challenges during the installation process, such as an irregular projection light path and occlusion. However, the Wincomn team overcame these issues with the Christie D20WU-HS projectors through simulation using an accurate three-dimensional model. Chen noted that the team managed to attain vivid visuals by utilizing the powerful depth of field
processing capability of the HS Series projectors, while enabling the contents to be displayed in their entirety in a continuous and attractive manner. In addition, there were very high expectations on the color reproduction and image quality of the projected visuals due to the huge projection canvas. The extensive use of reds for the show’s contents also brought about challenges in color calibration. “This is where the strengths of the Christie D20WU-HS really shone with its BoldColor Technology, which creates the color balance needed to reproduce colorful images, without sacrificing brightness. We also double-stacked the projectors and this arrangement enabled us to fully maximize the quality of the projected images on the large projection canvas,” Chen added. The results saw the D20WU-HS projectors delivering bright, accurate and realistic colors during the projection segment of the multimedia show, which drew audiences further into the story. Through the comprehensive application of other audiovisual elements, the show had a surreal quality filled with transpiring effects, providing the audience with a fantastic visual experience.
