The company’s Boxer 4K30 projectors will add a “new dimension” to a number of Rockettes shows, including the upcoming Christmas Spectacular and the 2016 engagement of New York Spectacular, starring the Radio City Rockettes.
Radio City Music Hall, which is based at Madison Square Garden, said it was looking to add more technology to its shows and deliver maximum visual impact to delight audiences.
The versatile Christie Boxer projector was used to create a “unique visual experience” by creating an immersive environment fuelled by a kaleidoscope of colours and imagery onto the archway ceiling and backdrop.
"We did a temporary installation on short notice a few months prior for the 'Adele' live NBC broadcast at Radio City,” said Danny Whetstone, founder of DWP Live, who also worked on the project.
“After some meetings and a demonstration of the Christie Boxer projector, we were thrilled to provide our services to the Madison Square Garden Company to enhance its 2016 production of New York Spectacular starring the Radio City Rockettes at Radio City with our content design upgrades to make the show come to life in a big way and more immersive for the audience.
"When discussing projector options for the upgrade install, we knew we wanted 30,000 lumens and a significant improvement in brightness, contrast and colour depth. The Boxer was chosen as the best option because of its flexibility, lower ambient noise level, and its ability to natively display 4k resolution.”
