For a past generation “COD”–or Christmas on Display had been part of the holiday celebrations much like the simbang gabi and the noche buena. Its that time of the year when parents bring their kids to Cubao to witness a puppet show at the Department Store aptly called COD. The tradition has since moved to the Greenhills Shopping Center, but this year EPSON takes the COD concept to the next level with a Spectacular 3D Projection Mapping show.
As a way of giving thanks to the Filipino for making them the brand of choice in projectors, Epson, in partnership with Ortigas & Company, Limited Partnership, is currently holding “An Epson Spectacular Christmas Celebration”– the first Christmas 3D projection mapping to take place in Philippines. The shows take place at the Capitol Commons Park in Ortigas Center, Pasig on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday weekly from December 11 until January 3.
“This is our first time to hold this kind of activity, and it’s all about giving back to the Filipino people. We want to bring back the good old memories of watching a street Christmas show like the ones we used to see in Cubao at the COD mall façade when we were still kids. We also want to treat today’s children with a different kind of entertainment – a special kind of wonder they can only get during the Christmas season,” said EPC Product Manager Lyn Lizarondo.
Powering this one-of-a-kind Christmas spectacle are Epson’s high brightness projectors. With their vivid colors, stark blacks, and sharp images, Epson’s projectors will bring to life a unique Christmas story designed to delight children of all ages.
Bringing projection beyond the boardroom, Epson’s high brightness projectors have an equal color and white brightness level of 11,000 lumens. The EB-Z11000 series offer superior image quality and its geometric correction capabilities give users the ability to project on practically anywhere, including curved surfaces or corner walls.
Epson has also achieved a breakthrough in their beyond Full HD projectors with the EB-Z10000U, which has a brightness level of 10,000lm, the highest in its range. Flexible installation options mean that users are no longer restricted to projecting in landscape format, as the EB-Z9000/11000 series can project in portrait mode. Moreover, with seven interchangeable lenses (including one short throw lens), installation options are greatly increased.
“Image quality has always been of very high importance for us,” states Siew Jin Kiat, General Manager, Epson Visual Instruments Division. “As such, we are focusing on providing high brightness and high color brightness projectors that come with a wide array of installation options. With this new range of large venue projectors, we’ve provided our customers with the highest quality images delivering vivid and sharp colours, bringing a whole new level of experience to viewers.”
The first Spectacular Christmas Show held last December 11 was exclusive for the company’s guests, partners, and employees. The award-winning all-male choir group, The Boscorale, will also perform for the guests.
Succeeding runs of the Epson Spectacular Christmas Show will happen for free public viewing every 30 minutes from 7pm to 12 midnight on weekends until January 3, 2016.
