South Korea's Everland ResortChristie has installed a Solaria CP2230 DLP digital cinema projector for the Space Tour 4D Theater at South Korea's largest theme park, Everland. Its Korean partner, Eugenetek Corporation, assisted Christie in the installation. The effort is part of the renewal process for the immensely popular Space Tour 4D Theater.

There visitors are transported to an exciting virtual world where they experience realistic 3D images, dynamic motion seats, and special effects such as strong winds as they explore the space frontier and enjoy vivid adventures in a totally immersive environment. The upgraded Space Tour 4D Theater officially reopened April 25.

"We're excited to install the Christie Solaria CP2230 projector in our Space Tour 4D Theater to offer the highest quality visuals and immersive 4D experience to all our guests," said Hyunjoo Won, resort planning & development, Everland. "I'm also grateful to the team from Christie and Eugenetek for their help, support, and professional teamwork in completing the installation and allowing us to open this attraction on schedule to great enthusiasm and response from our visitors."

Besides the Space Tour 4D Theater, Everland also uses Christie technology for its other attractions. The Pororo 3D Adventure, a fun-filled 3D theater performance starring the adorable TV character, deploys two Christie Solaria CP2230 projectors to display 3D imagery. Another popular attraction named K-POP Hologram, combines technology and K-POP cultural contents to enable visitors to "meet" their favorite Korean pop stars in an entirely new medium through three-dimensional hologram made possible with two Christie Roadster WU20K-J 3-chip DLP projectors and five Christie DWU670-E 1-chip DLP projectors.

Henry Khang, general manager of Christie Korea said, "We are very pleased to work with Everland once again on the installation of the Christie Solaria CP2230 projector to provide visitors from Korea and overseas with the best and most memorable visual experience at the Space Tour 4D Theater. It is heartening to know that our customers recognize that our projectors, in addition to having exceptional image quality, offer the best light efficiency, the lowest operating costs, and upgradability both now and in the future."
