Lighthouse Technologies Brings Splendor to Hong Kong International Film Festival
Lighthouse installed a R4-S 4mm screen in a 3.84m (w) x 2.88m (h) configuration
As one of the Asian film industry’s most prestigious events, the Hong Kong International Film Festival is devoted to a tradition of “uncovering and promoting the best in Chinese language films”. The 34th HKIFF runs from 21 March to 6 April, 2010. Over 240 films from over 50 countries will be on show at 11 venues in Hong Kong, of which 65 are world, international or Asian premieres. The opening ceremony this year premiered two movies, “Crossing Hennessy” and “Like a Dream,” providing an exceptionally magnificent prelude to this year’s festival. Film stars Tang Wei, Daniel Wu, award-winning actress Paw Hee-ching, and Andy On were on hand for the opening ceremony, and Lighthouse as well as a number of celebrities were on hand to witness the historical moment.
As display sponsor, Lighthouse installed a R4-S 4mm screen in a 3.84m (w) x 2.88m (h) configuration at the center of the main stage. In addition to the lightweight design, the screens also allowed event organizers to manipulate the video content in real time as needed, ensuring celebrity reaction shots were caught promptly and vividly.
Film is an art form highly dependent on excellent visuals
The ultra high resolution R4-S display also played an important role in sharing many precious moments from the “Crossing Hennessy” premiere with event guests. Excellent image quality, thanks to Lighthouse’s own M4 color uniformity technology, ensured the film retained its vivid look and emotional power.
Ivy Shiau, senior operations & events manager of the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, said, “As the main display sponsor of Asia’s most prestigious film festival, Lighthouse Technologies has a proven record for providing outstanding quality and service. The stunning visuals gave the opening ceremony a splendid splash of color. I hope Lighthouse Technologies continues to support the Asian film industry and more spectacular film events in the years to come.”
“Film is an art form highly dependent on excellent visuals, a trait that resonates strongly with the Lighthouse slogan, “create impact,” said Peter Chan, general manager of Lighthouse. “We are committed to developing more LED display solutions that deliver excellent visual quality and reliability to better meet market demand, and I personally look forward to pursuing future sponsorship opportunities in support the of the arts, in Hong Kong and around the world.”
