The Christie® HS Series projectors are illuminating the façade of the Cathedral of Tuxtla, one of the most iconic buildings in Chiapas, Mexico. The rental company Puntos Audiovisuales is responsible for executing the mapping, organized by the Tuxtla Gutiérrez City Council through the Municipal Tourism Bureau.
The projection aims to highlight the culture, music, and traditions of Chiapas, and continue promoting tourism in the city. The show runs every day at two times (20:00 and 21:00 hours) and has already become one of the main attractions for visitors to the historic center of the city.
To make it possible, two Christie DWU15-HS projectors – supplied by Christie's partner Wesco Anixter – have been mounted on separate metal tower structures in front of the cathedral at a throw distance of 37 meters to create a mapping of 17 meters wide and 11 meters high.
This 1DLP® laser projector model has 15,750 lumens and WUXGA resolution, equipped with Christie BoldColor+™ technology, providing enhanced color performance with deeper blacks and more natural and realistic on-screen visuals.
We chose these units for their laser technology and low maintenance, and of course, for their quality and power. They are proving to have great color fidelity, offering vibrant and bright images, all with quiet operation and high reliability. With just these two units, we have been able to create a stunning audiovisual experience that immerses the audience in a world of light and color, in such an iconic location as the Cathedral of Tuxtla, says Víctor Bermúdez, CEO of Puntos Audiovisuales.
The Christie HS Series consists of high-performance 1DLP laser projectors with brightness levels ranging from 7,600 to 23,650 lumens and resolutions including WUXGA and 4K UHD. It offers a powerful, reliable, and cost-effective option for almost any intensive use application.
