Christie 360 Experiential Studios, a digital strategy and content powerhouse for Christie®, has joined forces with TCL Chinese Theatre, the most iconic movie palace in the world, to captivate visitors and movie goers with a high-impact multimedia production using the most advanced projection technologies. Designed by the Christie 360 team to enhance the guest experience, the forecourt show was launched before an enthralled audience of Hollywood luminaries, local dignitaries and media. Visuals of ‘forecourt of stars’ handprints, Chinese dragons, and actual movie clips from memorable films that premiered at the Chinese Theatre emerged onto the theatre’s front entrance, which was digitally transformed into an architectural ‘screen.’ “TCL Chinese Theatre has always been a leader in delivering innovation in the cinema experience and we’ve upped the ante with this remarkable addition,” said Alwyn Hight Kushner, President and COO, TCL Chinese Theatres. “Over the next few years our plan is to continue our integration of experiential media as a complement to our core business. The Chinese Theatre is an important landmark in Hollywood and it is crucial to our team that our space stays relevant and continues to be a must-attend for our guests. Christie 360 has shown us a total commitment to our objectives and we are very pleased with the results.” Added Denys Lavigne, vice president, Christie 360, “The Chinese Theatre is such a fascinating environment. When you combine its rich Hollywood heritage, unique architectural signature and the visionary approach of the management team, you allow for so much opportunity to connect and share with the audience. And that is what Christie 360 is all about, helping our clients and partners fully leverage the experience potential of new digital media platforms for the benefit of their brand and their business. We feel very proud to be part of this fantastic adventure in the entertainment capital of the world. ” The transformation from traditional bricks-and-mortar to a digital canvas was achieved through the wonders of ‘projection mapping,’ a technique that uses projected images, blended to fit perfectly onto irregularly-shaped surfaces, to tell stories and ignite action. For TCL Chinese Theatre, teaming with multimedia directors and software specialists working for Christie 360, this involved ‘producing’ several colorful, immersive illusions combining traditional Chinese fireworks and mythological creatures with intense, evocative color and black and white clips of famous movie scenes. The central motif of the show projected onto the Chinese Theatre façade is a Chinese pagoda enclosing a dragon in relief. Dramatic lighting during the projection mapping show highlights the dragon, and animated elements bring it to life on the adjacent walls. The motif is not just physically central but thematically as well, since its lush Chinese-inspired architectural detailing and interior design, a throwback to the showy extravagance of Tinsel Town’s Golden Age, has contributed to making the Chinese Theatre an enduring Hollywood icon. The flipping, cascading tiles in the midst of the projection mapping show are realistic representations of the actual hand- and footprint tiles in the Chinese Theatre forecourt. Almost a century of stars leaving their marks in the wet cement of the forecourt has gone a long way in making the Chinese Theatre the institution it is. Imparting an illusion of depth to the façade, the rotating, cascading and flipping effects are a proven bit of the visual language of projection mapping. The montage of movie clips near the end of the projection mapping show is TCL’s way of tipping its hat (so to speak) to 100 years of cinema history. It also works as a sort of basic timeline of the Chinese Theatre’s history and that of Hollywood Boulevard itself, which matches in large part the history of big screen storytelling. Moreover, most (if not all) of the clips featured are pulled from films that premiered at the Chinese Theatre. Finally, the Theatre ‘crumbling’ at the end of the show exploits another classic trope in projection mapping visual language. Beyond the illusion of depth that the crumbling delivers, the dramatic ending is meant to give the audience a sense of climax and catharsis. As for the ‘gear’ used to merge and deliver the content, it consists of high-brightness projectors (mainly Christie Boxer 3DLP® projectors), processing ‘brains’ (the Christie Pandoras Box media server) that merges all sorts of media and control the show, and intuitive ‘auto alignment’ tools (Christie Twist™) to blend the visuals. Christie’s range of 3DLP projectors are truly industry-leading. With multiple brightness levels, resolution options, illumination platforms and electronics configurations, Christie 3DLP projectors are a mainstay in the projection-mapping world. Specific to the impressive TCL Chinese Theatre spectacle, Christie Boxer projectors, both 2K and 4K resolution varieties, are used. Boxers are well established in sporting arenas, museums, rock shows and just about anywhere that spectacles must be delivered, but the TCL implementation is the first-ever on the outside of a theatre complex in North America! The Christie Pandoras Box family of servers, players and software tools comprises the award-winning, real-time video processing and show control system that delivers the engaging TCL Chinese Theatre spectacle. From project conception to realization - and every step between - Pandoras Box gives users complete control over the entire workflow, maximizing efficiency while unleashing creative possibilities to enable the creation of amazing visual experiences. Christie Twist expertly ‘edge-blends’ multiple curved images seamlessly, on all four sides, for up to six projectors. Twist precisely controls multiple edge-blended images and warp displays to fit seamlessly on almost any projection surface - flat, curved or spherical. The TCL Chinese Theatre is the most iconic movie palace in the world. With over 50 events a year, including movie premieres, imprint ceremonies, and film festivals, the theatre continues to make Hollywood history every day. Visit http://www.tclchinesetheatres.com.

The Organization will be Presenting its Maintenance-Free Wireless Solutions, Creating a Network for the Integrated Control of IoT Applications Based on the Seamless Integration of Self-Powered Sensors and Switches with Local Controls, Gateways and Building Management Systems SAN RAMON, CA and PHILADELPHIA, PA / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2017 / At LIGHTFAIR International 2017 (Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, May 9-11, 2017), the EnOcean Alliance, as well as 16 of its members, will demonstrate the benefits of the interoperable EnOcean ecosystem for integrated building control and self-powered Internet of Things (IoT) applications. At Booth #836, the EnOcean Alliance presents a complete automation system based on the EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard. It will include all necessary maintenance-free, wireless components for intelligent lighting control and HVAC control, as well as energy management. The solutions presented help optimize the utilization of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective. With IBM and Vertuoz by ENGIE as new promoter members, the extensive ecosystem of the EnOcean Alliance continues to grow and promotes the standardization of intelligent building solutions for the Internet of Things. About 20% of the total energy production worldwide is used for electric lighting. With a modern lighting control system it is possible to save about 20-30% in a typical building. Daylighting is required by an increasing number of industry standards, such as ASHRAE 90.1-2010, or governmental energy code requirements, such as Title 24 in California. Daylight Harvesting Based on EnOcean Technology Daylight harvesting is a great way to combine energy savings, cost savings, and physical and mental well-being of workers in a building. Lighting control systems employing this technique measure natural light available in a building and only add as much artificial light as necessary. LED lighting control based on energy harvesting technology is a key component for intelligent buildings to fit these requirements. An EnOcean-based daylight harvesting system typically consists of wireless relay controllers, energy harvesting wireless occupancy sensors, light level sensors, and wall switches. The controller communicates via the EnOcean radio standard in 902 MHz. This allows setting up a system using maintenance-free batteryless sensors and switches, which are highly flexible to position. "Today, the awareness of environmental issues and energy costs is constantly rising and lighting is understood to be one of the key factors for energy savings and increasing comfort in intelligent buildings worldwide. The key advantages of wireless control are the ease of upgrading existing buildings and expanding a system at any time. Wireless control systems can even provide greater installation flexibility if units within the system do not require dedicated cabling or batteries for power. Energy harvesting wireless sensors, switches and controls, therefore, perfectly fit in with the sustainable characteristics of energy-saving lighting and LED technology. This makes EnOcean one of the most important wireless standards for maintenance-free applications for modern lighting control," says Graham Martin, Chairman and CEO of the EnOcean Alliance. At booth #836, the EnOcean Alliance will show an integrated building system covering the following areas: Self-Powered Switches and Sensors Intelligent lighting control can be covered on the basis of three main wireless components: kinetic-powered light switches, including dimmers, solar-powered light sensors, and solar-powered occupancy sensors. This system can additionally support a wireless daylight harvesting application, which is a lighting controls system that automatically adapts the light level to the amount of available natural light in a room measured by light level sensors. In a typical commercial building with such an automated lighting control system, it is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 30%. Wireless sensors can also lay the foundation for energy savings, increased comfort, and healthier living through automated HVAC control. Self-powered temperature, gas, and climate sensors combined with hydronic heating valves form a wireless network that supplies heat or cool air depending on individual needs and behavior or when room conditions need to be adapted to predefined set points. Gateways and Local Controllers The approach of seamlessly integrating the control of different building areas can be realized with gateways and local controllers. These directly communicate with the self-powered wireless devices and with each other to process the delivered data and information for a synchronized building management system. This results in better energy efficiency while increasing comfort and security at the same time. Building Management Systems These same gateways can bridge the EnOcean standard to work also with other established protocols such as BACnet, LonMark, WiFi, or the cloud. This provides maximum flexibility to installing professionals to expand and adapt building automation systems based on other protocols at any time with wireless components and to centrally control the whole system. EnOcean Alliance connects building automation with the Internet of Things Due to strong partnerships with leading organizations of the IT industry, such as the Open Connectivity Foundation, and industry leaders IBM and Vertuoz by ENGIE, the EnOcean Alliance opens the world of energy harvesting wireless communication to develop interoperable self-powered wireless solutions as a standard for the Internet of Things (IoT). Together, IBM and the EnOcean Alliance will provide sensor information in the Cloud and develop energy harvesting solutions as the open standard for maintenance-free wireless solutions to be used in cognitive buildings. These solutions can be used for various applications such as asset management, ambient assisted living projects, insurance or hotel and campus projects, giving maintenance-free wireless switches and sensors based on EnOcean technology. With the French energy giant Vertuoz by ENGIE joining the EnOcean Alliance, the ecosystem of the EnOcean Alliance continues to grow and promotes the standardization of intelligent building solutions for the Internet of Things. Together, Vertuoz by ENGIE and the EnOcean Alliance develop intelligent building solutions and build bridges towards a global network in the Internet of Things.

At Booth #836, the EnOcean Alliance presents a complete automation system based on the EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard. It will include all necessary maintenance-free, wireless components for intelligent lighting control and HVAC control, as well as energy management. The solutions presented help optimize the utilization of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective. With IBM and Vertuoz by ENGIE as new promoter members, the extensive ecosystem of the EnOcean Alliance continues to grow and promotes the standardization of intelligent building solutions for the Internet of Things. About 20% of the total energy production worldwide is used for electric lighting. With a modern lighting control system it is possible to save about 20-30% in a typical building. Daylighting is required by an increasing number of industry standards, such as ASHRAE 90.1-2010, or governmental energy code requirements, such as Title 24 in California. Daylight Harvesting Based on EnOcean Technology Daylight harvesting is a great way to combine energy savings, cost savings, and physical and mental well-being of workers in a building. Lighting control systems employing this technique measure natural light available in a building and only add as much artificial light as necessary. LED lighting control based on energy harvesting technology is a key component for intelligent buildings to fit these requirements. An EnOcean-based daylight harvesting system typically consists of wireless relay controllers, energy harvesting wireless occupancy sensors, light level sensors, and wall switches. The controller communicates via the EnOcean radio standard in 902 MHz. This allows setting up a system using maintenance-free batteryless sensors and switches, which are highly flexible to position. "Today, the awareness of environmental issues and energy costs is constantly rising and lighting is understood to be one of the key factors for energy savings and increasing comfort in intelligent buildings worldwide. The key advantages of wireless control are the ease of upgrading existing buildings and expanding a system at any time. Wireless control systems can even provide greater installation flexibility if units within the system do not require dedicated cabling or batteries for power. Energy harvesting wireless sensors, switches and controls, therefore, perfectly fit in with the sustainable characteristics of energy-saving lighting and LED technology. This makes EnOcean one of the most important wireless standards for maintenance-free applications for modern lighting control," says Graham Martin, Chairman and CEO of the EnOcean Alliance. At booth #836, the EnOcean Alliance will show an integrated building system covering the following areas: Self-Powered Switches and Sensors Intelligent lighting control can be covered on the basis of three main wireless components: kinetic-powered light switches, including dimmers, solar-powered light sensors, and solar-powered occupancy sensors. This system can additionally support a wireless daylight harvesting application, which is a lighting controls system that automatically adapts the light level to the amount of available natural light in a room measured by light level sensors. In a typical commercial building with such an automated lighting control system, it is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 30%. Wireless sensors can also lay the foundation for energy savings, increased comfort, and healthier living through automated HVAC control. Self-powered temperature, gas, and climate sensors combined with hydronic heating valves form a wireless network that supplies heat or cool air depending on individual needs and behavior or when room conditions need to be adapted to predefined set points. Gateways and Local Controllers The approach of seamlessly integrating the control of different building areas can be realized with gateways and local controllers. These directly communicate with the self-powered wireless devices and with each other to process the delivered data and information for a synchronized building management system. This results in better energy efficiency while increasing comfort and security at the same time. Building Management Systems These same gateways can bridge the EnOcean standard to work also with other established protocols such as BACnet, LonMark, WiFi, or the cloud. This provides maximum flexibility to installing professionals to expand and adapt building automation systems based on other protocols at any time with wireless components and to centrally control the whole system. EnOcean Alliance connects building automation with the Internet of Things Due to strong partnerships with leading organizations of the IT industry, such as the Open Connectivity Foundation, and industry leaders IBM and Vertuoz by ENGIE, the EnOcean Alliance opens the world of energy harvesting wireless communication to develop interoperable self-powered wireless solutions as a standard for the Internet of Things (IoT). Together, IBM and the EnOcean Alliance will provide sensor information in the Cloud and develop energy harvesting solutions as the open standard for maintenance-free wireless solutions to be used in cognitive buildings. These solutions can be used for various applications such as asset management, ambient assisted living projects, insurance or hotel and campus projects, giving maintenance-free wireless switches and sensors based on EnOcean technology. With the French energy giant Vertuoz by ENGIE joining the EnOcean Alliance, the ecosystem of the EnOcean Alliance continues to grow and promotes the standardization of intelligent building solutions for the Internet of Things. Together, Vertuoz by ENGIE and the EnOcean Alliance develop intelligent building solutions and build bridges towards a global network in the Internet of Things.

Christie®, the world leader in creating and sharing the best visual and audio experiences, is pleased to announce that its Roadster HD20K-J projectors and the Christie Pandoras Box show control systems have played a critical role in the mapping projections screened on the city’s most emblematic buildings during the recent GDLUZ festival of light held in Guadalajara, Mexico. GDLUZ, held for the very first time this year, is the largest festival of lights in Mexico and the country’s most unique audiovisual event. For the duration of five days, and within the framework of the 475th anniversary of the founding of Guadalajara, the city’s old quarters were lit up with multimedia technology, thanks to projection mapping, synchronized fireworks, multimedia shows and a gigantic sphere of light, among other installations. The festival was driven primarily by the Mexican company Altea Corp, specialists in development and content for multimedia events and one that has designed shows for brands including Coca Cola, Volvo, Adidas, Nike and Chivas, coupled with the support of the city council of Guadalajara and private support. Christie technology was used in three of the festival’s installations. The first, held in Plaza Tapatía, projected real-time captures of the audience, displaying gigantic 12-meter high faces, complete with humorous captions. Another of the interactive projections, called Laser Mapping, was also held in Plaza Tapatía. Here, using a laser pointer, the audience was able to draw shapes and images, which were projected in real time using Christie projectors on one of the walls of a building with a surface area of 360 square meters. The third projection using Christie technology was an interactive mapping on the esplanade outside Hospicio Cabañas, a building named a World Heritage site. Using a proprietary application designed by Altea Corp, which included custom-built servers to process images and movement sensors, the audience was given the opportunity to create a video mapping by “painting” the façade of Hospicio Cabañas in real time. In this case, the projection area was 462 square meters. Altea Corp was absolutely thrilled with the performance of the Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors used in GDLUZ. “The performance of the projectors was excellent, and the quality of the image was truly superb,” declared Carlos Márquez, Altea Corp’s director of projection. “The projector’s on/off times are optimum, as well as the duration of the lamp,” he added. These are 3DLP® projectors, delivering 20,000 lumen and HD resolution. Christie Pandoras Box also played a critical role in managing the shows. More specifically, Altea Corp used Pandoras Box Players and Pandoras Box Managers to run the projections and control the shows, the lighting and the fireworks. “Pandoras Box was a crucial element in the development of the three interactive mappings. Its guaranteed reliability makes it such an excellent product,” said Carlos Márquez. Attracting over 460,000 people during the five days, the festival is now the latest new attraction for the city of Guadalajara. “We wish to congratulate our partner Altea Corp for their excellent work on this project, said Ernesto Armus, Christie director for Mexico. “Christie works tirelessly to provide its partners with the most effective and intuitive solutions for complex large-scale projections.” Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. is a global visual and audio technologies company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ushio Inc., Japan (JP:6925).
