Christie Laser Projectors Power the World’s First Robot Theme Park at South Korea



Christie announced that Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land, the world’s first theme park dedicated to intelligent robotics, has installed an extensive range of its laser projectors and real-time video processing and show control systems, which deliver spectacular visuals and enhance the visitor experience.

Located in the city of Changwon on the southeast coast of South Korea, Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land occupies 1.25 million square meters and comprises a research and development center, convention center and theme park. Its main attractions, which combine robotics technology and entertainment, are powered by Christie GS Series and HS Series 1DLP laser projectors, as well as Christie Pandoras Box’s Single and Quad players, Dual and Quad OCTO Servers, Pandoras Box Manager and Widget Designer. These systems were installed by Christie’s Korean partners Star Networks and Digital Line Technology Group (D.L.T Group).

“As the first robot-themed attraction in the world, no effort was spared to deliver the best visual and audio experience to local and international visitors of Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land,” said Seung Won Ham, Head Manager, Star Networks. “Christie’s laser projectors and image processing solutions have been the clear choice from the onset. Besides using high-performance projectors and media servers, we want to accomplish a fully integrated technology solution that the end user can confidently rely on. This decision resulted in the best outcome in terms of usability, performance, reliability and ease of maintenance.”

A total of 48 DWU850-GS and eight D13WU-HS laser projectors were installed throughout the themed zones within the sprawling park, complemented by various Christie Pandoras Box systems providing real-time video processing and show control. The DWU850-GS projectors are used extensively for projection mapping and immersive displays that transport visitors to futuristic worlds aided by high-tech robots.

The D13WU-HS projectors, on the other hand, are deployed for an exhilarating full dome flying theater. Known as “Wing of Cosmos”, this highly-immersive ride features a 20-meter-high full dome screen and 4K-resolution contents produced entirely by D.L.T Group. Combined with surround audio and motion seats, “Wing of Cosmos” has become the most popular attraction in the theme park.

Ham said Christie Pandoras Box forms the backbone of the theme park’s attractions by linking up all audiovisual systems and controlling various aspects of the demonstrations such as projection mapping, blending, multi-channel audio, and lighting. As well, the Widget Designer serves as the main graphic user interface for projectors, audio & video equipment and robotic systems for the respective themed attractions.

“The Christie projectors and Pandoras Box enabled accurate synchronization between the robots and contents to deliver a highly entertaining and engaging show experience that has been widely praised by visitors since the venue’s official opening. If the full score is 100, we want to give Christie a score of 200! We are very satisfied with the end results, and are proud to have strengthened our partnership with Christie through participation in this major project,” Ham added.

Steve Bang, Account Manager, Entertainment, Christie Korea, commented, “We are delighted that Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land has chosen our powerful and dependable 1DLP laser projectors and Pandoras Box for most of its themed attractions. The successful deployment and integration of these Christie products by our partners at the respective zones have aptly demonstrated the versatility and unlimited possibilities of delivering fascinating showpieces for all visitors.”
