The 3DLP projectors of Christie, together with its Pandoras Box server and Spyder X80 processor make up the technology that Europalco has used to 'give life’ a spectacular 360º screen and circular format.
Designed by event companies Global Challenge and Europalco, the last corporate event of Deloitte in Portugal, held in the Carlos Lopes Pavilion lisbon, had a spectacular staging, for which integral solutions of Christie to power a large 86-inch screen×6 metre, in circular format, around which the stage and tables were arranged.
