Star Dome: A New Star City Attraction Powered by Epson

Wazzup Pilipinas!

There’s a new dragon that made its secret lair inside the Star City Amusement park in Pasay, and this one has a beautiful story behind it.

Star DomeStar City’s newest attraction, was launched last December 2014 and features holographic technology and dome projection to tell a timeless, compelling story about a prince, a princess, and a dragon.

“We are very proud to showcase the power of Epson’s projectors in this one-of-a-kind show. Star Dome is the first and only installation of its kind in the country and Star City is only the third in the world today to feature this attraction,” said Epson Philippines Corporation’s (EPC) President/Country manager, Toshimitsu Tanaka.

For its dome style projection, Star Dome is using the Epson EB-Z8450WU projector – a high-end unit capable of a 360 degree installation, projects HD-quality WUXGA images, and sports a 7,000-lumens lamp. With its proficiency for geometrical corrections and accurate color matching (edge blending), the Epson EB-Z8450WU is perfect for unique installations.

“As the Number 1 global projector brand, Epson is proud to lend our innovative technology to highlight the creative projection applications that Star Dome uses,” added Tanaka.

Aside from the dome set-up, the attraction features an interactive giant book that users can manipulate by swiping, giant ‘talking’ heads animated through projection mapping, and live-action/holographic technology hybrid story telling.

When asked why Epson projectors were chosen for this theme park attraction, Lyn Lizarondo, EPC’s Product Manager for Visual Instruments, explained that the strength of Epson projectors lies in the company’s proprietary 3LCD technology.

“Compared to our competitor’s similarly-priced 1-chip projectors, the colors that Epson 3LCD projectors provide are usually three times brighter. With brighter colors, stories come alive, presentations make a bigger impact, and entertainment – your HD movies and 3D games – becomes much more immersive,” said Lizarondo.

The International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM) reviewed the initial work done by Epson and scientists working for 3LCD. The committee concluded that customers should consider Color Light Output (CLO) as a relevant metric when buying a projector. A higher CLO means more vivid and realistic colors. On the other hand, 1-chip projectors cannot claim the same since they can only produce 1/3 of Color Light Output vis-à-vis their White Light Output. As such, for customers to get their money’s worth, they should insist on the Color Light Output specs for their projector purchase.
