Wincomn Technology chases waterfalls with Christie


Wincomn Technology has designed and installed a Christie projector setup at the Tang Paradise theme park in Xi’an that maps onto the Silver Bridge Waterfall, a 35m wide x 16m high attraction that projects the ‘glory of the ancient Tang Dynasty’. The installation comprises four Christie D20WU-HS 1DLP laser projectors.

‘We need a high-brightness projection system that can overcome the outdoor conditions to deliver colourful and lifelike visuals that accentuate the storytelling and fulfil the show’s overall themes,’ said Tony Chen, general manager at Wincomn Technology. ‘The projectors require a reliable and robust light source that can withstand the rigours of daily outdoor use. After much consideration, we decided that the laser-illuminated Christie D20WU-HS is most suitable for this project.’ 

Chen explained that during the site survey, the Wincomn team observed the environmental conditions, such as the uneven terrain and dark tone of the rockery, as well as the rapid flow of water cascading downhill, which could all impact the quality of the projections.

‘We managed to overcome the environmental conditions with the Christie D20WU-HS, which would otherwise be a daunting task for our team. Its high brightness of 20,600 ISO lumens produces brilliant visuals, while Christie’s BoldColor Technology offers enhanced colour performance and saturation over standard laser projection. This ensures colour accuracy and effectively resolves the dark colour tone of the rocky terrain.’

The projectors also feature Christie Twist built in, which made it quick and easy to set up and calibrate for the unconventional surfaces. The projector’s small footprint, light weight and omnidirectional capabilities also helped with the installation process. All four units are housed in two projection towers overlooking the waterfall.
