The spectacle is accomplished using eight Crimson Series laser projectors and four Griffyn 4K32-RGB pure laser projectors
India - Christie has announced that its high-brightness 3DLP laser projectors are employed for a projection mapping showcase on the newly inaugurated Statue of Equality in Hyderabad, which commemorates the 11th-century Bhakti Saint Sri Ramanujacharya.
The spectacle, which highlights the life journey and teaching of Sri Ramanujacharya, is accomplished using eight Crimson Series laser projectors and four Griffyn 4K32-RGB pure laser projectors. They were installed and commissioned by Christie’s longstanding partner, Tricolor India Schauspiel, a systems integrator specialising in architectural 3D projection mapping and son et lumière. The Crimson Series projectors were installed within two towers to deliver bright and intensely colourful images on the statue’s surface, while the Griffyn 4K32-RGB projectors were used to display captivating imagery on the gates and walls surrounding the statue.
Located in Hyderabad, the capital city of Telangana state in south-central India, the 216ft-tall Statue of Equality is one of the world’s tallest metallic statues in sitting position. It is mounted on a 54ft-high base building named Bhadra Vedi, which houses a digital library and research centre, a theatre, as well as an educational gallery detailing many works of Sri Ramanujacharya. The majestic structure was officially inaugurated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during an elaborate ceremony on 5 February.
“This is a landmark project and we’ve spared no effort in bringing this highly anticipated projection mapping showcase to fruition using a very capable and dependable projection system that can withstand inclement weather conditions,” comments Himanshu Sabharwal, creative director, Tricolor India Schauspiel. “The Christie Crimson Series is our preferred choice due to its excellent track record in India, particularly in terms of performance, reliability and service support. We are also delighted to deploy Christie’s Griffyn 4K32-RGB projectors for detailed projections on various structures overlooking the Statue of Equality.”
ishubh Nayar, sales director for India, Enterprise, Christie, comments: “We’re deeply honoured that our 3DLP and RGB pure laser projectors have been chosen to illuminate the Statue of Equality, which symbolizes Sri Ramanujacharya’s ideals of equality in all aspects of living and driving home the message of equality for all. Our heartfelt congratulations to the Tricolor India Schauspiel team for putting together a spectacular show that aptly demonstrates the capabilities of our high-brightness laser projection systems, which has built a solid reputation for delivering numerous large-scale projection mapping projects in India.”
