2010 World Expo, Shanghai Opens

On-yi Lo

This is the line of people, 08:30 am local Shanghai time, waiting to enter the Shanghai World Expo.

We’ll be watching the event for readers (it’s huge of course) and hope to bring things of interest to your attention.

We noticed the Barco press release ‘Barco illuminates the Shanghai World Expo 2010‘ sent recently – they (Barco) have something like 250 projectors around the Expo.

A local systems integrator told us (he was a man, why do ‘men’ always have to measure things) that Christie had something like 418 projectors in use that they knew of. There would probably be more than that.

The IMAX projector being used in one of the middle east pavilions (either UAE or Saudi) is also Christie we understand.

And of course Christie would have been daft if they hadn’t got any MicroTiles at the event – we believe that there are 168 MicroTiles in the China pavilion alone!
