Christie enters the fourth dimension
KOREA: A Christie Solaria digital cinema projector has been installed at South Korea’s largest theme park, Everland. The projector is being used as part of the recently upgraded Space Tour 4D theatre and was installed by the manufacturer together with its partner in the region, Eugenetek Corporation.
The Space Tour 4D show aims to engage all senses as audience members experience 3D images, motion seating, and special effects such as strong winds while they explore the frontier of space. Christie’s 33,000 lumen Solaria CP2230 projector was selected for the theatre upgrade.
‘We’re excited to install the Christie Solaria CP2230 projector in our Space Tour 4D Theatre to offer the highest quality visuals and immersive 4D experience to all our guests,’ said Hyunjoo Won, resort planning and development, Everland. ‘I’m also grateful to the team from Christie and Eugenetek for their help, support and professional teamwork in completing the installation and allowing us to open this attraction on schedule to great enthusiasm and response from our visitors.’
Besides the Space Tour 4D Theatre, the park also uses the manufacturer’s visual solutions for its other attractions. The Pororo 3D Adventure deploys two Solaria CP2230 projectors to display 3D imagery and lively performances, and another popular attraction, K-Pop Hologram, combines technology with Korean popular culture. For this show two Roadster WU20K-J 3-chip DLP and five DWU670-E 1-chip DLP projectors are used.
‘We are very pleased to work with Everland once again on the installation of the Christie Solaria CP2230 projector to provide visitors from Korea and overseas with the best and most memorable visual experience at the Space Tour 4D Theatre,' commented Henry Khang, general manager of Christie Korea. ‘It is heartening to know that our customers recognise that our projectors, in addition to having exceptional image quality, offer the best light efficiency, the lowest operating costs and upgradability both now and in the future.’
