Christie’s rental staging partner Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd has ignited the Christmas spirit by delivering spectacular visuals that captivated thousands of spectators who turned up for the official lighting up ceremony of the highly-anticipated Christmasland in New Taipei City event on 19 November.
The stunning projection mapping performances, which run nightly until 2 January 2017, are planned and executed by Hexogon Solution using a total of 42 Christie Boxer 4K30 3DLP projectors. A slew of bright and vibrant visuals depicting Christmas adventures of the Santa Bear and Fang Tou Bear family project onto the façade of the 30-storey New Taipei City Hall building in Banqiao District, as well as a fascinating 360-degree projection on a 36m-high cone-shaped Christmas tree in front of the building.
Not only does this mark the debut of Boxer 4K30s for a major event in Taiwan, it is also the biggest ever projection mapping performance to be held there – with a projection area of 5,239sq.m (the size of a football pitch).
Adrian Goh, group managing and artistic director, Hexogon Solution, said, “We are immensely honoured to be given this opportunity to create this visual spectacle for the New Taipei City Government, by deploying 33 Boxer 4K30s for projections on the building’s surface and nine projectors for mapping around the cone-shaped Christmas tree.
“Our objective is to create a world-class performance for the enjoyment of Taiwanese spectators during this festive period. At the same time, we wish to set the standard of what it takes to deliver a good projection mapping show in terms of technology, brightness and image quality in Taiwan.
“We’re pleased with the performance of the Boxer 4K30s and are also delighted to accomplish our objective of delivering the biggest projection mapping performance in Taiwan. The client is also happy that whatever we suggested has all been fulfilled and proven correct. Hopefully this will set a new standard and customers’ expectation for future shows in Taiwan,” Goh said.
Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, commented, “As one of the most prominent rental stagers in the region, Hexogon Solution is continually improving its capabilities and know-how to deliver spectacular and truly memorable visual experiences. I’m delighted that our Boxer 4K30 projectors have once again played an important role in the staging of the largest ever projection mapping performance in Taiwan. I congratulate Adrian and his team for delivering another fantastic show during this festive season, and look forward to more exciting projects from Hexogon Solution in the near future.”
