Presented by WorldStage, the hands-on work session illustrated the different levels of image quality achieved by comparing HD projection to 4K projection. A state-of-the-art Christie Digital HD20K-J HD projector and Christie's new flagship projector, the Boxer 4K30, went head-to-head displaying the same content. WorldStage engineers created a content stream that allowed the audience to compare HD video with native 4K video in 30 and 60 fps formats.

Presenter Josh Weisberg, President and COO of WorldStage, walked the audience of 125 clients and associates through different content forms and formats, pointing out where 4K projection may provide a significant benefit over HD video projection. Guests learned all they needed to know about 4K display, workflows and components.

The demonstration was supported by WorldStage's Barco E2 screen processing system; content was played out using d3 Technologies' 4x4 Pro media servers, which WorldStage recently acquired. The main focus of the demo was the new Christie Boxer 4K30 projector, a 30,000 lumen, high-resolution, 3DLP projector billed as the smallest, smartest and most efficient 30K projector available. It features omni-directional operation, single-phase power, a full range of input connections, built-in warp and blend functionality, and stunning color reproduction.

"After the audience reviewed pre-recorded content, the final demonstration compared a live HD video and live 4K video," Weisberg explains. "You could hear the crowd murmuring in astonishment at how detailed and lifelike the 4K camera image appeared on the 4K projector."

The WorldStage presentation of 4K display magic was co-sponsored by Rentex equipment rentals, Clark Media, Christie Digital and Six-Point Brewing company.

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
