Situated in Wong Chuk Hang, in the Southern District of Hong Kong Island, the all-weather Water World Ocean Park opened its doors to visitors on the September 21. The 65,000 square meter (about 700,000 square foot) site is comprised of five different zones, with 27 indoor and outdoor attractions for guests of all ages.
Nestled in the hillside, and overlooking the South China sea, the water park has seen a HK$4 billion (US$513 million) makeover capable of hosting up to 7,000 visitors at a time. This new destination for locals and tourists is set to provide a boost for local employment and will support economic recovery.
Every day the pool displays a variety of wave patterns with waves ranging from 0.3 to 1 meter (1 to 3 feet) high. Overlooking the wave pool is a built-in stage which boasts a 20 meter x 3.8 meter (65.5 foot x 12.5 foot) Optizvision LED screen which at scheduled times, is used to capture guests on a live camera source and deliver the footage across the screen. An interactive ‘kiss camera’ game and branded advertisements are also displayed to guests via AV Stumpfl’s PIXERA two Quad media server.
For this revamp project, Water World Ocean Park trusted system integrators Cosmovision.co., Ltd for the entire AV system design and implementation, including the prominent LED screen.
Cosmovision’s technical sales engineer Jason Yeung, commented: “We had the luxury of pre-programming the PIXERA server in our workshop before deploying the unit onsite. With the project configured and setup prior to installation, aligning the pixel to pixel resolution with the LED screen was very straightforward.”
This project utilized a customized LED solution, as Water World Ocean Park specifically wanted to use black SMD for high contrast and a high brightness of 7000 nits.
