Hexogon Solution Expands Projector Fleet with World's Largest Purchase of Christie Boxer 4K30 Projectors
Record number of newly acquired Christie Boxer as well as Roadie 4K45 projectors to be used for the rental staging company's various large scale outdoor events in the region
SINGAPORE - (February 25, 2015) - Hexogon Solution, a Christie partner based in Singapore, has set itself apart from the competition by adding 80 units of the groundbreaking Christie Boxer 4K30 and 15 units of the highly-rugged Christie Roadie 4K45 3DLP projectors to its impressive fleet of Christie projectors to further boost its rental staging capabilities.
This acquisition of 80 Christie Boxer 4K30s, the largest-ever single purchase in the world to date by a rental staging company, is poised to raise Hexogon Solution's profile as one of the most advanced Christie rental partners in Southeast Asia. The newly-purchased Boxers and Roadie 4K45s will be used for the company's various large scale outdoor events scheduled to take place in Singapore and the region.
As well, Hexogon Solution also invested in the award-winning Pandoras Box product family from coolux, which was acquired by Christie in January 2015, to deliver impactful 3D visualization and compositing solutions through the Christie Boxer 4K30 projectors. Hexogon Solution's purchase of the Pandoras Box media system is the largest ever for coolux products in Southeast Asia. The Boxer 4K30-Pandoras Box combo enables the rental staging firm to create both continuous and non-continuous digital canvases, and manage the content that flows onto these canvases.
"We are thrilled to be the first rental staging company in Asia to be equipped with Christie's latest and most advanced visual solutions that will provide us with the competitive edge," said Adrian Goh, managing director, Hexogon Solution. "With our acquisition of the Christie Boxer 4K30, Christie Roadie 4K45 and Pandoras Box media system, we'll be capable of delivering even more exciting projection mapping contents and effects for our clients in the region. As a longtime user of Christie products, I'm confident that these new and innovative visual solutions will continue to offer the high performance and reliability that we can depend on."
Ken Wheatley, director of sales, Christie Asia Pacific, commented, "We are proud to support Hexogon Solution's investment in all of Christie's products, most notably the Christie Boxer 4K30 and Roadie 4K45 family - two of our newest projectors with a high lumen level and high resolution - which fully meet the company's need to bring a myriad of visuals to life."
Lin Yu, vice-president, Christie Asia Pacific, added, "We're proud to have an experienced rental staging partner like Hexogon Solution on our side for years, and acquiring our latest and cutting-edge solutions with confidence. With its years of expertise in staging outdoor events, we look forward to seeing the projectors and Pandoras Box media systems deliver fascinating visuals that create memorable shared experiences."
Hexogon Solution has used Christie's visual solutions in a number of prominent large-scale events in Singapore, such as the National Day Parade at the Marina Bay Floating Platform over the past three years where it provided projection mapping and multimedia contents for the main performances using the Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3DLP projectors. It was also responsible for delivering a stunning projection mapping show on the façade of the famous Fullerton Hotel and the iconic Merlion Statue during the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2015 event on 31 December 2014. The extravaganza, which officially kicked off celebrations to commemorate Singapore's golden jubilee, set a new record for the largest number of Christie projectors ever deployed for an event staged in Singapore to date.
Weighing in at less than 150lbs (68kg), Christie Boxer 4K30 is a 30,000 lumen, high-resolution, projector designed for high impact live events. Boasting 4K (4096 by 2160) native resolution and 3DLP quality, and built-in Christie TruLife image processing to provide the highest bit depth and fastest frame rate, the Boxer is easy to use and offers optimum feed and performance flexibility.
The Christie Roadie 4K45, introduced in November last year, is the brightest lamp-illuminated projector on the market. Rugged, reliable, and road tested, the 45,000 lumen Christie 4K45 offers a higher level of image brightness for rental stagers to use in concerts, sports events, themed entertainment, conventions, live events, annual meetings, casinos, and more. Similar to the Boxer 4K30, it features Christie TruLife for the clearest, most true-to-life image quality.
