Christie brings Magic Castle to life with 3D mapping extravaganza

Six-minute nighttime 3D mapping spectacular lights up South Korea's Lotte World

Christie has announced that Lotte World, a major entertainment and recreation complex located in South Korea’s capital, has chosen its projection, auto calibration, image processing and SDVoE solutions to bring its iconic Magic Castle to life with a brand new 3D multimedia mapping show.

Designed by international digital experts d’strict, based on the formative characteristics of Lotte World Magic Castle’s architectural structure, the six-minute nighttime graphics-based, 3D mapping spectacular made its debut in August on the 41-metre-high Magic Castle, part of Lotte World’s Magic Island outdoor theme park.

The visuals were achieved using three Christie D4K40-RGB pure laser projectors; Christie Mystique, Large Scale Experience (LSE) Edition; two Christie Pandoras Box servers; a Pandoras Box Manager and Widget Designer; and as three sets of Christie Terra transmitters and receivers. The equipment was installed by Christie’s trusted partner Star Networks, which delivered several highly-acclaimed large scale projects in Korea.

“The Magic Castle 3D multimedia mapping show is a large-scale, dynamic spectacle that requires a fully integrated solution that not only delivers excellent visuals and colour fidelity, but also a powerful content management and AV-over-IP system that offers long-term reliability,” said S.H. Ham, general manager, Star Networks. “The Christie solutions installed are perfect for this venue as they have an excellent track record in terms of performance, level of integration and dependability.”

Paul Lee, sales manager, enterprise, Christie Korea, added: “We are delighted that the Lotte World Magic Castle 3D multimedia mapping show has been well-received since its debut. This is a clear testimony of the high performance and integration demonstrated by Christie’s laser projection, auto calibration, image processing and SDVoE solutions, which have set a new benchmark for large-scale outdoor projection mapping projects in Korea.”
