Christie announced that Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land, the world’s first theme park dedicated to intelligent robotics, has installed an extensive range of its laser projectors and real-time video processing and show control systems, which deliver spectacular visuals and enhance the visitor experience.
Located in the city of Changwon on the southeast coast of South Korea, Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land occupies 1.25 million square meters and comprises a research and development center, convention center and theme park. Its main attractions, which combine robotics technology and entertainment, are powered by Christie GS Series and HS Series 1DLP laser projectors, as well as Christie Pandoras Box’s Single and Quad players, Dual and Quad OCTO Servers, Pandoras Box Manager and Widget Designer. These systems were installed by Christie’s Korean partners Star Networksand Digital Line Technology Group (D.L.T Group).
A total of 48 DWU850-GS and eight D13WU-HS laser projectors were installed throughout the themed zones within the sprawling park, complemented by various Christie Pandoras Box systems providing real-time video processing and show control. The DWU850-GS projectors are used extensively for projection mapping and immersive displays that transport visitors to futuristic worlds aided by high-tech robots.
Seung Won Ham, Head Manager (System Team TE/ Leader), Star Networks said Christie Pandoras Box forms the backbone of the theme park’s attractions by linking up all audiovisual systems and controlling various aspects of the demonstrations such as projection mapping, blending, multi-channel audio, and lighting. As well, the Widget Designer serves as the main graphic user interface for projectors, audio & video equipment and robotic systems for the respective themed attractions.
“The Christie projectors and Pandoras Box enabled accurate synchronization between the robots and contents to deliver a highly entertaining and engaging show experience that has been widely praised by visitors since the venue’s official opening. If the full score is 100, we want to give Christie a score of 200! We are very satisfied with the end results, and are proud to have strengthened our partnership with Christie through participation in this major project,” Seung added.
