Christie projectors power Russia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

Christie’s 3DLP projectors were selected to power “The Mechanics of Wonder” installation at the Russia Pavilion located at Expo 2020 in Dubai.

The centrepiece of the pavilion is “The Mechanics of Wonder” immersive installation, using seven Christie 3DLP projectors and Christie Conductor software to projection map visuals onto a model of a human brain.

The installation was conceptualised and planned by Simpateka Entertainment Group, with video content produced by dreamlaser and equipment and technical support provided by Big Screen Show.

Maintenance and support of the system is provided by Christie Professional Services.

Seven Christie Boxer 4K30 projectors were used to map the brain, with six projectors suspended from above and one below the model.

Alexander Shagov, project manager, Big Screen Services, commented: “As it turns out, the structure is non-static and can be opened up. This made the task somewhat more challenging and determined the final positioning of the projectors in relation to the décor.”

“Thanks to the wide range of lenses available for the projectors, we had no problem dealing with the fact that there are places inside the pavilion where it is physically impossible to install projection equipment. And the correct placement of the projectors is essential. The ultra-short throw lens comes in handy here.”
