Christie D4K40-RGB – A triumphant projection mapping technology

VOLGOGRAD, Russia – Every year on May 9, Russia celebrates Victory Day, marking the end of the Second World War and the triumph over fascism.

Even though this year’s Victory Day celebrations took place in a more limited format, thousands of spectators still participated via a live broadcast from the Battle of Stalingrad Museum and Preserve.  They had a sight to behold: The Motherland Calls, the majestic monument that stands proudly on Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd, had never looked so vibrant and spectacular.

To map images onto this 87-meter-tall sculpture, specialists from Dreamlaser turned to the most advanced equipment in their arsenal: 16 Christie D4K40-RGB pure laser 40,000 ANSI lumen projectors featuring the Christie® TruLife™ electronics platform and Christie RealLaser™ illumination system. This enabled the team to capture more than 90% of the Rec.2020 color space and create vibrant, colorful, and realistic imagery.

"We’ve been preparing ‘Light of the Great Victory’ installations for several years now, but this year was a special one. First of all, we now have the technical capability to illuminate a monument of this scale using only a very small number of projectors. The color transmission quality, richness, and intensity of RGB laser technology are what made all the difference for us," Dreamlaser co-founder Denis Chuchko explained. "This was also important from a television picture perspective, as we knew that thousands of viewers would be watching the live broadcast and recordings of it following the event. This was also the year that we introduced an AR component to the show. We installed an additional 26 spotlights at the top of Mamayev Kurgan and covered the hill with a ‘burning field’ using thousands of LED bars."

The celebrations were organized by Region_34 (the Volgograd Regional Government), the Agency for the Organization of Mass Cultural Events, and the Battle of Stalingrad Museum and Preserve.

Erected in 1967 and recently restored, The Motherland Calls monument remains among the world’s top ten tallest statues in the world. It retained the title of world’s tallest non-religious statue until 2018, when construction of the Statue of Unity in India, was completed. At night, the Statue of Unity can be viewed for miles as a result of projection mapping using Christie technology.
