Christie's projection technology has been used by an automotive company to create a giant HD powerwall.

The company's Christie Mirage 4K25 3DLP 4K 3D projectors were used in conjunction with Christie Twist and Christie AutoCal at GM's Vehicle Engineering Center.

Dave Muscat, senior director for the Americas region in visualisation, simulation and control room solutions at Christie, stated that the firm was "honoured" to have been chosen for the project.

He explained that the technology used for the powerwall - the first Christie Mirage 4K DLP projector prototype - is the "only 3D projector in the world capable of displaying native 4K resolution at true 120Hz".

The 240-square-foot HD glass powerwall also features Christie technology that provides automated blending and alignment for high performing projection.

Christie also noted that the Mirage 4K25 3DLP 4K 3D projectors used for the project features up to 25,000 centre lumens running at a high frame rate of 120Hz.

To complete the installation, Christie Spyder X20 video processors were fitted at the powerwall to "provide 20 megapixels of bandwidth for mixing, blending and windowing source formats", the manufacturer added.

The idea of the powerwall is to provide a 3D interior of a car, in which GM engineers can examine and make changes to the vehicle.
