Queensland convention centre deploys “Australia’s first” Griffyn 4K32-RGB


Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre (MECC) has deployed a Christie Griffyn 4K32-RGB pure laser projector for its facility, which is said to be Australia’s first install of the product. Having decided to upgrade its ageing lamp-based projectors, the MECC turned to Diversified Australia for the integration of a future-proofed solution.

MECC is a major event and performing arts venue catering to a diverse customer base from multinational mining companies to local dance schools. Facilities at the MECC include a 1,000-person main theatre, a large flat floor convention centre with multiple meeting rooms and a total of nine spaces for hire. The Griffyn 4K32-RGB is currently serving the main theatre to deliver projections onto a 10m wide screen. In addition, three meeting rooms have been upgraded with Christie D13WU-HS 1DLP laser projectors. The 12,000 ANSI-lumen models are equipped with a long-life laser light source providing up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation.

“We’re pleased to have the feature-rich Christie D13WU-HS laser projectors fitted in our convention centre to deliver bright and high-quality visuals that will mesmerise our clients and guests,” said MECC head of AV, Mark Blake.

Describing the installation process as a seamless changeover from the existing projectors, Blake noted that his team was able to install the Griffyn 4K32-RGB within the same space as the previous projector without impacting existing services and sightlines. This was accomplished with the creative use of aluminum truss and mounting hardware for the Griffyn 4K32-RGB. The 34,000 ANSI-lumen Griffyn product is Christie’s first projector to offer electronic colour convergence (ECC) that can adjust colour alignment via remote control.

Following the successful integration and commissioning in August 2021, Blake concluded: “I am certainly happy with the outcome as not only are we able to meet the current demand for quality images but can continue to keep up with clients’ rising expectations in the near future.”
