Christie HS Series projectors are illuminating the façade of the Cathedral of San Marcos. Organised by the City of Tuxtla Gutierrez with the Municipal Tourism Bureau, the show was managed by Puntos Audiovisuales, a rental and staging company.

The projection seeks to highlight the culture, music, and traditions of Chiapas, and to promote tourism in the city. The show runs every day at 8pm and 9pm.

Two Christie DWU15-HS projectors, supplied by Christie’s partner Wesco Anixter, were mounted on metal tower-like structures in front of the cathedral at a throw distance of 37 meters to create a 17-meter wide by 11-meter high canvas.

This 1DLP laser projector has 15,750 lumens and WUXGA resolution and comes equipped with Christie BoldColor+ technology.

“We chose these projectors for their laser technology and low maintenance, and of course for their quality and power. They are demonstrating great colour fidelity offering vivid and bright images, and all with quiet operation and great reliability,” says Victor Bermudez, general manager of Puntos Audiovisuales.

“With only these two projectors we have been able to mount a stunning audiovisual experience that immerses the audience in a world of light and colour, and in a place as emblematic as the Cathedral of Tuxtla,” Bermudez added.
