PALM EXPO INDIA/MUMBAI – (May 29, 2013) – Christie® and its partner, Modern Stage Service, are pleased to showcase a live demo of projection mapping at Palm Expo India May 30 – June 1, 2013. Highlighting the Modern Stage Services’ booth #C69 are projection mapping on a flat screen and a pyramid structure using Christie Roadster HD10K-M, Christie Roadster HD18K and Christie Roadster HD20K-J.
Belonging to the Christie’s 3-chip DLP® projector series, Christie Roadster HD10K-M, Christie Roadster HD18K and Christie Roadster HD20K-J use light efficiently to ensure brightness uniformity throughout the images that are projected onto irregularly-shaped ’screens’ such as buildings, interior spaces and natural landscapes. Embedded with Christie Twist™, the projectors allow users to expertly edge-blend and warp multiple curved images seamlessly on all four sides to almost any projection surface – flat, curved or spherical.
At Palm Expo India, the projection mapping masks the flat screen and pyramid structure to become a dynamic video display of 2D and 3D images that can transform what is reality for the audience into illusions and images of infinite possibilities.
In India, Christie has worked with Modern Stage Services to bring Purana Qila, a 500-year-old Old Fort of the Mughal Empire, to life with a 55-minute multimedia show using projection mapping that depicts Delhi through the history of its 10 cities, beginning from the 11th century to the present.
Christie’s projectors are also used in the newly opened Adlabs Imagica, the largest entertainment theme park in India, to empower visitors with close-to-reality experiences.
