Christie laser projectors have transformed the beautiful Southeast Flower Paradise into a nighttime illumination wonderland, delighting visitors with spectacular projections at four different venues across the sprawling park known for a wide collection of flora unique to the region.

Located in Zhangzhou city, the flower themed park spans 650 hectares and is categorized as a national tourist attraction. To attract more visitors and enhance the city’s image, the provincial government developed the venue into a nighttime attraction filled with colorful illuminations using 22 Christie GS Series 1DLP® laser projectors installed and commissioned by Christie’s longstanding Chinese partner Wincomn Technology, which is also responsible for the projection design.
The four venues include “Dreams of the Flower Fairy” show, “Garden of Dreams” (Phantom of Lake Heart, and the Flower Fairy sculpture – all of which highlight the park’s floral themes.
“The end user required a bright and dependable projection system that could overcome the outdoor conditions to deliver colorful, lifelike visuals that amplifies the natural beauty of the park,” said Tony Chen, general manager, Wincomn Technology. “After a detailed site survey by our technical team, we decided that the laser-illuminated Christie GS Series was most suitable for this project due to its compact footprint, low noise, high usage reliability and robust light source that can withstand the rigors of daily outdoor use.”
Chen said the projection mapping component is aimed at increasing foot traffic at Southeast Flower Paradise to boost the night tourism economy.

“The trees in the park are very dense, so we had to be cautious when setting up the projection towers to avoid damaging the park’s original landscape. We also had to create an innovative design for the projection light path to avoid casting shadows on the projected canvases,” Chen explained.
The projectors are housed in special enclosures to protect them from inclement weather. “In view of the high humidity levels, the projectors are required to demonstrate very high stability and reliability. And since the projectors are installed at close proximity to visitors, they need to operate at low noise without impacting the audience experience. I’m glad that the Christie GS Series projectors met all these requirements and surpassed our expectations with their astounding performance,” he added.
The management of Southeast Flower Park is delighted with the end results, which met its vision of effectively combining the existing landscape with the state-of-the-art projection mapping effects to enhance the look and feel of the park after dark, providing an unprecedented and mesmerizing night tourism experience to all visitors.
Michael Bosworth, Executive Director, Head of Enterprise for APAC, Christie, commented, “I applaud Wincomn Technology for delivering another top-notch installation using the Christie GS Series laser projectors at the Southeast Flower Park in Zhangzhou. It’s heartening that Christie’s high-performance and dependable projectors featuring solid state illumination continue to be the trusted choice of cultural and night tourism venues across China.”
