Christie Pandoras Box powers immersive sci-fi experience in China

Christie technology powers two themed experiences, Space Rescue and Space Dinosaur Base, for young people, at ZGC Science Fiction Industry Innovation Centre, Beijing

Christie Pandoras Box and Widget Designer power the exciting visuals of an immersive entertainment experience targeted at teenagers and young adults, in China. Located at the ZGC Science Fiction Industry Innovation Centre in Beijing, visitors to the Wonderland Science Fiction Exploration Hall are sent on a sci-fi adventure set in deep space. Divided into two themed experiences, Space Rescue and Space Dinosaur Base, participants engage in specific tasks and games to successfully complete their missions.

By utilising the industry technology and digital interactive tools from Christie Pandoras Box, the attraction fuses digital and real spaces, creating an immersive experience with diverse thematic explorations that are tailored for young visitors. Pandoras Box Software and Widget Designer were supplied and installed in this facility by Christie’s partner, Beijing De Yi Jia Chuang (Audiovisual).

Christie Pandoras Box facilitates the transition of distinct gaming scene effects for both immersive adventures, integrating multi-scene audio and video content with Widget Designer’s control algorithms, which adapt to various environments. The software is installed in two customised multimedia servers, each dedicated to immersive audio and visual integration for the respective themed experiences.

Space Rescue tasks participants with piloting a replica return capsule, docking with a space station, and restarting a control system at a biological base, all while wearing exclusive astronaut attire. Meanwhile, Space Dinosaur Base presents a dual challenge of bravery and intelligence as participants explore a chaotic space dinosaur base.

“We’re delighted to be involved in this groundbreaking project, which is part of a larger initiative to develop Beijing’s burgeoning science and technology industry cluster,” said Daiyuan Wang, general manager, De Yi Jia Chuang. “Choosing Christie Pandoras Box to drive the visuals in this facility was a natural choice, given its proven track record in delivering versatile and high-performance show control and playback solutions that create breathtaking visual experiences.”

Wang added: “This setup allows for precise control of multi-scene storyline effects and efficient network distribution, ensuring unified reception of multi-channel input/output signals and optimal control of game modules. This empowers the operator to achieve real-time and precise playback control of various audio and video content.”

April Qin, senior sales director for China, enterprise, Christie, commented: “We’re thrilled to see Pandoras Box shine at the Wonderland Science Fiction Exploration Hall. This project’s success reinforces the value of our award-winning Pandoras Box media and show control systems, particularly in ensuring the reliability of software and hardware for entertainment solutions and live events. This success also instills greater confidence by Beijing De Yi Jia Chuang to implement similar projects in the future.”
