Christie laser projectors illuminate Zhenbeitai Tower, China

Christie’s GS series 1DLP laser projection systems were used to deliver visuals on the façade wall of Zhenbeitai Tower, the largest watchtower along the Great Wall of China.

Situated on the peak of Hongshan Mountain in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, Zhenbeitai Tower is widely regarded as one of the three ‘Great Wonders of the Great Wall’ along with Shanhaiguan and Jiayuguan, owing to its strategic location and military significance.

Standing at 30m in height and consisting of four levels, this lookout post was constructed in 1607 during the Ming Dynasty. It originally functioned as an observation site for maintaining order in the locality where the Han and Mongolian people conducted business transactions.

In a move to showcase the artistic charm of Zhenbeitai Tower and create a festive atmosphere during Lunar New Year, the Yulin Municipal Government initiated a large-scale projection mapping show on the facade wall of the famed watchtower, allowing local residents, and tourists to experience an unprecedented night-time spectacle.

Christie’s partner, Jianye Display, was engaged to deliver this ambitious show, and a total of seven Christie DWU1100-GS 1DLP laser projectors were deployed to display images on the tower’s façade wall.

Zhongliang Li, technical director, Jianye Display, said: “The Christie DWU1100-GS laser projector, with a brightness of 11,850 lumens, has been instrumental in bringing the ancient Zhenbeitai Tower to life with this mesmerising light show. Their exceptional brightness and image quality have transformed the facade wall into a captivating canvas, immersing viewers in the rich history and grandeur of the Great Wall. We are proud to have delivered this unforgettable experience, allowing visitors to witness the magic of Zhenbeitai Tower like never before.”
