Christie 4K projection and auto calibration solutions make “digital curtain”


Christie®  announce that Senzoku Gakuen College of Music(SGCM) has adopted its4K projection and auto calibration solutions for the “digital curtain” of its new theater, namedMUSIC POOL CINO,whichopened on August 17.

SGCM chose to use a “digital curtain” instead of installing a traditional Japanesetab curtain – made from a single or several pieces of fabric with elaborate embroidery widely considered to be a work of art – to provide entertainment and boost MUSIC POOL CINO’spublic image, as well as to surprise, impress and uplift audiences before a performance. This “digital curtain” is the first of its kind to be installed in an educational institution in Japan.

The large curtain measuring 19 meters wide and 4.84 meters high is used to project digital content. Projector delivery and control is accomplished byUshio Lighting Inc. using two Christie Boxer 4K30 3DLP® projectors installed at the rear of the theater. Both projectors are equipped with Christie Mystique, an automated camera-based alignment and recalibration solution that enables quick installation, alignment, calibration and maintenance of multi-projection systems.

Professor Makoto Shinohara, Head of Musical Theatre Course, SGCM, said, “When audiences enter MUSIC POOL CINO for a performance, astill image is displayed so it looks like a normal stage curtain.The surprise comes when visuals on the curtainbeginto move a few minutes before the show starts.”

A spokesperson from Ushio Lighting Inc. added, “Since images are projected on the curtain, itsedgesmay shift back and forth under the influence of air conditioning or atmospheric pressure, resulting in distortion or deviation of the portion where two images blend. Christie Mystique software has been introduced to overcomethese misalignments. The ability to quickly adjust and maintain multiple projector projections makes troubleshooting easy for the user.”

Content was produced for the digital curtain by Naked Inc.and is based on “NanbanByobu” byrenowned 15th century Japanese painter Naizen Kano. This “Byobu”, or the folding screen itself, is from the Azuchi-Momoyama period in the late 1500s, which depicts colorful and gorgeous Nanban (foreign) ships, buildings and people that arrived in Japan from ports in places such as Spain and Portugal.

Prof. Shinohara noted that the digital curtain of MUSIC POOL CINOhas been designed to draw attention to art, not only for visitors but also for current students of SGCM, students preparing to enter the university, and international students. 

“Musicals are a stage art that originated in the West and are often performed around the world. In addition to traditional musicals, we are also creating original musicals in Japanese. This is why we selected “NanbanByobu”, which is a mixture of Japanese and Western styles, and the projector reproduces the details of this elaborate work brightly and vividly,” he added. 

Michael Bosworth, executive vice president, Enterprise, Christie, commented, “We are delighted that SGCM has chosen our Boxer 4K30 projectors and Mystique to deliver extraordinary digital projections on the stage curtain ofMUSIC POOL CINO. This is a brilliant demonstration of how Christie’s various technologies can breathe new life to a traditional artform, and enable our partners and customers to transform their creativity into reality.”

Weighing in at less than 150lbs (68kg), Christie Boxer 4K30 is a 30,000 lumen projector designed for high impact live events, rental staging, conference rooms and large halls. Boasting 4K resolution, built-in Christie TruLife™ image processing, and omnidirectional deployment capabilities, the Boxer is easy to use and offers optimum feed and performance flexibility.
