Christie Technology Takes Visitors on Spectacular Coast to Coast Visual Journey

Christie® technology is taking people on an unforgettable journey across Canada – without flight delays, congested airports or jetlag. A spectacular new flight simulation ride called Fly Over® Canada launches guests into a thrilling immersive experience including the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rockies, cosmopolitan cities, the rugged East Coast and more via the Christie D4K35603-chip DLP® projector and images produced by Sherpas Cinema.

Christie Projectors are used in Fly Over Canada

Installed at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Fly Over Canada also features Uplift, a preshow presentation produced by the award winning Montreal-based Moment Factory using eight Christie DWU675-E 1-chip DLP® projectors.

Christie: The Brightest and the Best Choice
“As we built up the company we started talking to Christie about various aspects of this project. Moment Factory then specified Christie for the preshow projectors so that got us hooked up with the (Christie) DWU670-E projectors,” said Eric Sambell, director, construction &technology, Soaring Attractions.

“After considerable research by the technical and creative team at Soaring Attractions, the owner/operator of Fly Over Canada concluded that Christie was also the clear 4K projector choice for the main ride.

“We chose the Christie D4K3560 projector solution because we needed the brightness and intensity to light a 19-meter diameter surface area. Obviously we needed the brightest projector and as much resolution as we could get,” continued Sambell. “That meant a 4K solution but because it’s a motion ride we needed 60 hertz to avoid motion blur – which led us to the D4K3560.”

The Christie D4K3560 projector is part of the Christie TruLife™ electronics platform offering customers superior image and video quality for the most comfortable and realistic viewing experience.

Christie Steps up and does it Right
“The projector sits out on a perch, which made it a bit of challenge but the installation went smoothly and Christie made sure everything was perfect; they came through with everything right when we needed it. Everyone, from the Christie field application engineers to Geoff Chick (central and western regional sales manager, Canada), really stepped up and made things right.”

The show opened last summer and, according to Sambell, ran at capacity on weekends and well-exceeded expectations in the months that followed. He said people have returned up to ten times and the reaction from people of all ages has been overwhelmingly positive.

Christie DWU675-E1-chip DLP® projectors provide trusted performance, reliability and exceptional image quality. Ideal for small auditoriums, boardrooms, classrooms and houses of worship, the Christie DWU675-E delivers image blending and warping, stacking capabilities and precision color matching for use in either fixed or rental staging applications.
