Christie Helps Set GUINNESS WORLD RECORD

christie-guinness-0615Christie told us today that its valued partner, Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd, used Christie visual solutions to accomplish a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title achievement for the Greatest light output in a projected image ever produced in a single event.

This stunning feat was achieved with 160 Christie Roadster HD20K-J and S+22K-J 3DLP projectors deployed for a projection mapping performance at the opening ceremony of the Southeast Asian sporting event at Singapore’s new National Stadium. Boasting a total brightness of over 3,200,000 lumens, it beats the previous record of 1,169,000 lumens, set by Freightliner Trucks (USA) at Hoover Dam, in Boulder City, Nev., USA, on May 4, 2015.

Guinness World Records spokesperson said, “This is a fantastic GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title achievement by Hexogon and Christie and we welcome them to our record breaking family.”

The amazing spectacle was made possible by Hexogon Solution, which installed the projectors on 20 towers situated around the National Stadium where a slew of colorful images and multimedia content were projected on the stadium floor. This is also the world’s largest number of Christie projectors ever deployed for an event. All show contents displayed by the projectors are driven by 18 award-winning coolux Pandoras Box Media Servers, which are renowned for creating compelling large-scale, multimedia experiences.

Participated in by 7,000 athletes from 11 nations, this is the fourth time that this regional sporting event is being held in Singapore since the event began in 1959. More than 40,000 spectators are expected to attend the opening ceremony tomorrow, which promises to be a spectacular showcase of mass displays comprising 5,000 performers, props supported by an aerial system, and most notably, multimedia projections as well as light and sound displays for a rousing and captivating visual treat.

Hung from specially-built towers above the highest seating area in the stadium, the entire fleet of projectors was carefully set up by the experienced team of engineers and technicians from Hexogon Solution. They spent long hours blending and calibrating the projected images that displayed in stunning 4K resolution. Two dedicated control rooms were set up above the seating area – one on each side of the stadium – to house the Pandoras Box Media Servers and other equipment that supplied the contents to all projectors.

Christie is here. Hexogon Solutions is here.
