New panoramic experiences created in Los Angeles using Christie projectors
Some 1,000 feet above the city of Los Angeles is Skyspace LA, which is the tallest open-air deck in California. It allows for a full panoramic, 360-degree views of Los Angeles.

To get to the deck, visitors have to transfer between elevators. To get visitors excited, the company behind the deck had to create an exciting transition. To do this, they created a 360 Landscape and Reflection Wall experiences.

The 360 Landscape is a 50 by 30-foot projection mapped space, which surrounds visitors with a visual representation of LA from the top of the tower where the deck is located. The visitors can then press the displays to trigger graphics which show further points of interest. The projectors used by Stimulant, the company behind the project, were Christie Digital DWU-600-G projectors. The primary reasons for this were Christie’s superior image quality and quiet operation when the projectors are running. The audio system was provided by JBL speakers.

In terms of the Reflection Wall aspect of the exhibition, this is an interactive segment that uses pixels to create reflective images. It does this by capturing visitors’ movements and then translating them into graphics. The Wall is using for projectors, the same Christie DWU-500-G projectors.

Stimulant CEO, Darren David, said of the project: ”The vision for space necessitated sophisticated engineering within a very complicated set of constraints. WorldStage brought deep experience and innovative solutions to the project every step of the way, and together we delivered a set of skills that far outshone everyone’s expectations.”
