EPIC 360° PROJECTION
The new Jangar Culture & Arts Palace in China’s northwest is a majestic museum that covers more than 6000 square meters, and cost more than US$10 million and four years to complete. A tribute to Jangar, one of the most respected Mongolian folk heroes, the four-story structure features an elaborate showcase of Jangar’s life story and the rich heritage of Mongolian culture. One of its highlights is a permanent 360° display, which recounts the Mongolian Khan’s heroic exploits with spectacular visuals.
Christie and its Chinese partner Wincomn Technology provided the display, a continuous 12m wide by 4m high flat screen using Christie Twist for the seamless edge blending and colour matching. The 10-minute show features highly realistic imagery and sound effects for an immersive experience. Wincomn Technology was responsible for the design, selection, installation and commissioning of the overall audio, visual and control solutions.
“The contents of the projection mapping performance are based on the Jangar Epic, a unique form of Mongolian storytelling and dance dating back to the 15th century,” says Wincomn project manager Zhiqiang Liu. “We are very proud and honored to present one of the three great epics of ancient Chinese literature through projections on a 360° screen, and are pleased that the deployment of eight Christie DS+6K-M projectors have enabled us to provide visitors with a high quality and immersive viewing experience.”
Christie Asia Pacific vice president Lin Yu adds, “We are thrilled that Christie’s robust M Series projectors have been used for the first time to recount the amazing story of Jangar, who was elected Khan at just seven years of age, defeated the monster Mangus with his mighty warriors and established a Mongolian-style utopia. This visually-arresting 360° projection mapping performance is a fitting tribute to Jangar at this magnificent venue and it is an honor for Christie to play a role in breathing new life to this legendary folk hero and helping Jangar Culture & Arts Palace to create memorable shared experiences.”
