A group of media workers had the chance on Sept 16 to have an early glimpse of the upgraded Sky Screen at SIP’s Harmony Times Square. They were amazed by the 3D displays.
The Sky Screen, with a length of 500 meters and a total area of 16,000 square meters, was first lit up in January 2009. It is Asia’s longest and largest screen of its kind. The square operator began to renovate it early this year in the hope of making it more beautiful and interactive.
The upgraded Sky Screen along with a set of ground lighting and projection facilities offers a wide range of fantastic 3D pictures from those of the outer space and local cultural elements to world-famous paintings.
“The resolution of the pictures is seven times that before the upgrading, but the energy consumption can decrease by 35 to 40%. After it is formally put into operation, there will be three displays every night during weekdays, each lasting half an hour, and more during weekends and holidays,” said the operator, revealing that a series of bazaars and other events will be held under the Sky Screen to help boost nighttime consumption.
