Christie GS Series 1DLP laser projectors have been utilised to deliver vivid, lifelike visuals in a new dome theatre located in Xiong’an New Area, a self-sufficient and sustainable city in Hebei province, China.
The Five Senses Bubble boasts a diameter of 8.5 metres and a height of 6.3 metres, and is constructed using air-film reinforced concrete. Inside, the visuals are powered by five Christie DWU8902-GS projectors fitted discreetly around the dome to display images measuring 3.2 metres in height. The projectors’ built-in warping, blending, and colour matching capabilities are said to have resulted in a “relatively smooth” installation process.
The installation was undertaken by Zhongqing Yingye Group, which was appointed distributor of Christie’s 1DLP projection systems in 2020. The company has extensive experience in professional audio and visual systems integration.
“The Five Senses Bubble dome theatre is a unique structure that integrates technology with arts and culture to strengthen community bonds in this new city,” a spokesperson for Zhongqing Yingye Group commented. “We are pleased to be involved in the projection component of this project, and the Christie GS Series laser projectors have been our top choice since day one. Not only do they deliver stunning image quality, realistic colour reproduction and reliability, their quiet operation and small footprint also make them remain ‘invisible’ during the shows.”
April Qin, director of sales, Enterprise, Christie China, added: “Kudos to Guangzhou Zhaocheng Electronic Technology for completing this amazing dome installation with our tried-and-tested Christie GS Series, which is the go-to projection system that offers brilliant colour and premium image quality for high-usage environments. This is a great combination of technology and culture that provides a highly immersive visual experience for all visitors.”
