Extreme projection on the roof of the world

When partner Landsky asked us if it was possible to help them with a projection for the square in front of the ancient Jokhang Buddhist temple in Lhasa, Tibet, we thought “Sure, why not?” The only problem is that it is located at over 3,700m (12,000 feet) altitude.

Would projectors even be able to deal with the lower pressure at this altitude? After some field tests, the answer was yes, the UDX definitely can stand up to the extreme conditions that combine extreme high altitudes, low temperatures and low pressure. It was important that the projectors offer great visuals and do so reliably in the extreme conditions. 

The result? A truly superb interactive projection that uses 9 UDX projectors to give the many visitors a clear understanding of the temple’s remarkable history. It is also an opportunity for the monks to spread their message through visual storytelling.

Dating from about the year 650, Jokhang is considered the holiest temple in a region that includes the iconic Potala Palace. The region as a whole is sometimes referred to as "the roof of the world". 

So the next time someone asks how far we go for our partners, reply 3,700 meters – straight up!
