Hexogon Solutions using Christie Boxer 4K30 for projection mapping performances at National Day Parade and Sentosa Merlion
SINGAPORE – (August 11, 2015) – Christie® projectors played a crucial role at Singapore’s 50th birthday celebrations by providing spectacular visuals that captivated tens of thousands of spectators who attended the festivities on August 9, 2015. The stunning projection mapping performances were planned and executed by Christie’s rental staging partner Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd at three locations: the Padang (venue of the National Day Parade), the world famous Sentosa Merlion and the iconic Fullerton Hotel.
More than 120 Christie projectors comprising the Boxer 4K30 and Roadster HD20K-J displayed rich and colorful multimedia content, including 3D effects, that enhanced the scale and grandeur of the celebrations befitting of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, also known as SG50. This is the first time Christie Boxer 4K30 projectors were used for a national event in Singapore since launching in January 2015.
Adrian Goh, managing director, Hexogon Solution, commented, “The SG50 celebration is one of our key projects for this year and we wanted to deliver an unforgettable projection mapping spectacle during the National Day Parade (NDP). This is the first time that we are using the Christie Boxer 4K30 projector and I’m pleased to note that it offers stable performance, a smaller footprint, and allows us to obtain at-a-glance status updates via its intuitive preview screen. This translates into a shorter setup time, which is critical since we executed the performances at different locations.”
For the National Day Parade, 64 Christie Boxer 4K30s were installed above the National Gallery of Singapore, creating a 100-meter by 70-meter canvas on the performance floor. Besides displaying visual contents exceeding 4K resolution, the clarity and brilliance of the images allowed the team from Hexogon Solution to create beautiful motion graphics that complemented the movements of the 3,500 performers on the two-tiered stage.
