Electrosonic uses Christie Projectors for Newseum Project


Recently at the Newseum, a seven-level, high-tech interactive museum which is located in Arlington, Virginia, Electrosonic has provided visual entertainment solutions that include Christie projectors, Steward Screens, and a variety of other technologies. The Newseum shows the history of news reporting from the 16th century to the present, and has around 250,000 square feet of exhibit space with 14 major galleries and 4D time-travel experience. With ceiling-mounted EAW CIS400 speakers and custom Dakota line arrays and Bag End subwoofers in the lobby, it can be concluded that the sound system has been addressed accordingly; in addition to this setup the Gallery has two Sunrise Systems news tickers, which run 100 to 150 respectively along the fronts of the second and third-floor balconies. At the beginning of the tour on the concourse level, the theaters have been outfitted with Christie 3-chip DLP projectors, Stewart screens, Tannoy speakers and Bag End subs.

Continuing on the fifth floor, a long narrow space features display cases surmounted by a frieze created by 20 Standard Definition Christie projectors displaying a collage of video images. In addition to these are five more Christie HD projectors and custom screens that tell individual stories about new history. The fourth floor has a 9/11 Gallery which has a Samsung 24-inch flat panel display from Electrosonic and a screen and a Christie HD projector. On the first floor, there is a 57 x 25-foot custom curved Stewart screen, a pair of Christie Digital CP2000 Projectors, DVS HD Servers and Renkus Heinz, Tannoy and Bag End Speakers. The Newseum opens in Washington, D.C. in April.
