Every evening at 8-9 p.m., tourists and locals gather to witness the fountain show that takes place at Kangbashi Fountain Square in Kangbashi District, Ordos, in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
The fountain itself consists of 2,970 sub-fountain nozzles and 1,678 underwater lights reaching up to 230 meters (754.5 feet). Music plays in sync with lighting and projections.
This year, to celebrate the National Day festival, the show’s organizers enlisted the help of Digital Projection to achieve a dream-like, water curtain projection show.

To bring the spectacle to life, 28 M-Vision Lasers (21000-WU) were introduced to the installation to cast content onto a vast “screen” of water, created by multiple water jets measuring 200 meters long and 20 meters tall.
Mark Wadsworth, Vice President of Global Marketing, Digital Projection attributes the ColorBoost and Red Laser technology as one of the many reasons why the M-Vision Lasers were selected for the project: “The customer needed the very best and reliable projectors to display content onto the waterfall-like curtain,” he says. “The intelligent color processing delivers the most realistic and saturated colors, something very important for a unique project of this complexity and grandeur”.
The M-Vision Laser projector — boasting 21,000 lumens output and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio — has been designed so that the optical components are 100% protected from the outside world, from light source to lens, something that was critically important in an outdoor environment like this.
