Christie transports visitors to Avatar with immersive visuals

The unique dome experience was inspired by Avatar: The Way of Water, with HS Series 1DLP laser projectors bringing to life the movie's fictional planet of Nebula

Christie HS Series 1DLP laser projectors have brought to life Avatar’s fictional planet of Nebula, enthralling audiences with immersive visuals in a dome set up within Dam Sen Cultural Park, a well-known amusement park in Ho Chi Minh City.

Titled “Nebula – The Elemental Lighting Planet”, the AV showcase took place in an inflatable dome measuring 15 metres (49 feet) in diameter and 8 metres (26 feet) in height. It employed various technologies including several Christie D20WU-HS laser projectors, interactive lighting, laser effects, and realistic props to transport visitors to an exciting universe inspired by Avatar: The Way of Water. The concept was conceived and executed by Christie’s trusted partner Alta Media, which specialiwes in systems integration, digital content, and show entertainment technology.

“‘Nebula – The Elemental Lighting Planet’ tells the story of the four elements – air, earth, water, and fire – which are seamlessly weaved together using various technologies to create a compelling show featuring an idyllic universe, planets, and the trees of soul and life that bind everything together,” said Tai Hoang, co-founder & CEO, Alta Media. “Among the highlights of this show were projections accomplished by Christie D20WU-HS projectors installed on opposite sides of the dome. Each projector was equipped with a Navitar fisheye lens and we were able to fill the dome with spectacular images by placing the projectors about 1.8 metres (6 feet) from the ground.”

Hoang noted that the entire production of the project from conceptualisation to installation was completed within 10 working days, a feat not easily matched by systems integrators in Vietnam. “Thanks to our prior experience in large-scale, elaborate shows such as The Masked Singer Vietnam and numerous live performances, we were able to put together this elegant showcase using contents exclusively created in-house. I’m pleased that the contents are perfectly matched with the Christie HS Series projectors, which delivered eye-catching visuals that visitors both young and old can fully enjoy and appreciate during the annual Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.”

Jason Yeo, senior sales manager for Southeast Asia, Enterprise, Christie, commented: “Alta Media has outdone itself with this fascinating AV showcase that combines state-of-the-art technology, immense creativity, and masterful storytelling that captivates visitors throughout its 10-day duration. I’m glad that the Christie D20WU-HS, with its high brightness, BoldColor Technology, compact footprint, quiet operation, and omnidirectional capabilities, has delivered an amazing spectacle that makes visitors believe they have arrived on the fictional planet of Nebula.”
