Located in Wong Chuk Hang in the Southern District of Hong Kong Island, the all-weather Water World Water Park opened its doors to visitors on September 21. The 65,000 square meter (approximately 700,000 square foot) venue is made up of five different zones, with 27 indoor and outdoor attractions for visitors of all ages.
Nestled into the hillside and overlooking the South China Sea, the water park has undergone a HK$4 billion (US$513 million) makeover capable of handling up to 7,000 visitors at a time. This new destination for locals and tourists is expected to boost local employment and support economic recovery.
Each 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 featuring a 20m x 3.8m (65.5ft x 12.5ft) Optizvision LED screen which, at scheduled times, is used to capture guests on a live camera source and broadcast the images to 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 redesign project, Water World Ocean Park trusted the system integrators Cosmovision.co., Ltd for the entire design and implementation of the AV system, including the prominent LED screen.
Jason Yeung, Technical Sales Engineer, Cosmovision, commented, “We had the luxury of pre-programming the PIXERA server in our workshop before deploying the unit on site. With the project set up and configured before installation, aligning the pixel-to-pixel resolution with the LED screen was very easy.
This project used a custom LED solution as Water World Ocean Park specifically wanted to use black SMD for high contrast and high brightness of 7000 nits.
