SHANGHAI – Christie® is pleased to announce that its DWU2022-HS 1DLP® laser projector has been named Best Product for the Show Lighting category at the Alighting Awards 2021. The DWU2022-HS is a variant of the HS Series specifically developed for the Chinese market.
Currently in its 9th edition, the annual Alighting Awards is a prestigious event held in conjunction with the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition to recognize global enterprises for developing innovative illumination products that combine cutting-edge technology with creative and outstanding designs. The Christie DWU2022-HS had impressed the panel of judges with its high brightness, small form factor, enhanced color accuracy, long-life laser light source and comprehensive installation flexibility.
"We’re absolutely delighted that the Christie DWU2022-HS has clinched the Alighting Awards for the Show Lighting category, which recognizes not only the product but also our innovation and dedication to the cultural tourism sector that we are deeply involved in," says April Qin, sales director for China, Enterprise, Christie. "Although this is the first time that we are participating in the Alighting Awards, we’re tremendously honored that this projector’s capabilities are acknowledged by esteemed members of the ProAV industry in southern China."
Qin added that this accolade would not have been possible without the strong support from Christie’s partners and distributors, which have deployed the DWU2022-HS in numerous cultural tourism, performing arts, and entertainment projects across China. These include the Jiangsu Garden Expo Park light show in Nanjing, "Dreaming in Hometown" cultural show in Wuyuan, and the Yellow River Tower light show in Lanzhou. The projections have enhanced the storytelling element and delivered amazing visuals that mesmerized audiences at these venues.
Achieving 20,6?00 ISO lumens and weighing less than 42 kg (100 lbs.), the Christie DWU2022-HS is one of the lightest and brightest 1DLP laser projectors on the market. And thanks to the enhanced color accuracy of Christie’s BoldColor Technology, the DWU2022-HS produces stunning, true-to-life images, while omnidirectional capabilities make it the perfect choice for challenging, space-limited installations. In addition, with the onboard Christie Twist?™ warping and blending engine and optional Christie Mystique?™ automated camera-based alignment tools,? the process of setting up, aligning and maintaining multi-projector systems using the DWU2022-HS is quick and easy.
Christie will formally receive the award at the 26th Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, which will be held at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou city on a date yet to be announced by the organizers.
