Thanks to another successful participation in the tender, AVL Projekt was given the opportunity to deliver a high quality Christie projector with accompanying video equipment. The projector was delivered to the Municipal Cultural Center in Apatin.

  • Client: Cultural Center Apatin
  • Date of project: 2017

It is a cultural institution which deals with the organization of cultural and artistic programs at the municipality area of Apatin and which implements programs from artistic disciplines like fine art, film, theater, literature and music.


About the client's need and the delivered solution


The programs are realized in the space of more than 1,500 m2, which among other things, consists of the Grand Hall with 258 seats and the accompanying necessary rooms. The supplied projector is intended for the use primarily in the Great Hall and for cinema projections.


However, the client's intention is to use it also for other purposes: for conferences, promotions, presentations, and the like. For this reason, Christie LWU701i projector has been selected with the output power of 7000ANSI lumens and a contrast of 10000:1 (HDCR technology). This enables the projections of excellent visibility at higher ambient light levels, which fulfills the customer's requirement for the delivery of a multifunctional projector. Its lens can meet the needs of multipurpose use and serve for various programs, from different positions: from the front of the balcony or the passage of the floor, or from the existing cabin.

From the existing cabin, an image of 700x437cm is projected, from a distance of 20m, to an existing motorized projection screen.


The 3D BluRay Player is available for playback, which can also be set up at a remote location in the cultural center thanks to the supplied HDMI HDBaseT extender Aten VE812 that allows the transfer of 4K content from a distance of 100m.


With the supplied free LiveViewer software, it is extremely easy to share audio and video content with the projector directly from a computer or laptop and via a local area network or wirelessly which requires an optional USB adapter.


An important advantage of the supplied projector is the extremely low noise level in operating mode, which is of great importance for the theater performances.


Also the Harman Kardon AVR 171S audio-video receiver has been delivered. This device has the ability to play music via USB port from hard disk or USB memory. Also, the HK AVR 171 has support for AirPlay, which allows wireless streaming of music from Apple devices (iMac, iPhone, iPad, iPod). Streaming music from other smartphones, tablets or computers is enabled through the integrated Harman TrueStream Bluetooth technology.

Each of the 6 HDMI inputs supports 3D materials and 4K resolution, as well as audio standards Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio ™. Thanks to the patented Harman EzSet/EQ technology and the supplied microphone, automatic calibration of the audio system is enabled depending on the speaker position in the room, which ensures the best audio performance of the system.
