On 1 October 2017, to celebrate the country’s birthday and add to the festive atmosphere of the National Day holiday, the creation team of the ‘Amazing China’ documentary − which showcased China's economic and social achievements since the 18th National Congress − arranged a grand urban light show in 33 cities around the country.

In Beijing, huge, luminous, colored characters spelling ‘Amazing China’ and ‘Bravo! China’ were projected on the new CCTV and the China World Towers landmark buildings. The glorious images attracted lots of attention from passers-by, who eagerly shared this experience via their mobile phones.

Exquisite visual experience

More than 30 Barco UDX-4K32 projectors were deployed to project the images onto the CCTV building. The Barco UDX-4K32 is a laser projector equipped with 3-chip DLP® technology, up to 31,000 lumens light output and 4K UHD resolution.

Featuring Barco Pulse 4K image processing technology and a high-contrast optical engine, the projectors offer an intuitive interface and flexible, user-friendly, embedded control software. The UDX-4K32 presents exquisite visual experiences with images of the highest quality.

The projector of choice

For such a high-visibility national performance, the first priorities are ultra-high brightness and image stability. The Constant Light Output (CLO) functionality provides constant brightness and color over time to ensure a successful performance. In addition to brightness, color calibration, and stability, the UDX-4K32 projector not only outperforms the Rec. 709 color space, it provides the widest color spectrum in the industry. No wonder it has become the projector of choice for stage performance and outdoor light shows.
