Kitchener, Ontario: Toronto’s George Brown College, one of Canada’s largest colleges, has decided to use Christie’s visualization solutions for its BIM Lab in the Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies (CCET) at the Casa Loma campus.
BIM Lab can be used by industry professionals, business partners as well as students to develop 3D digital models and visualize them on a custom Christie-designed demonstration solution, driven by three 120Hz stereoscopic 3D DLP Christie Mirage WU7K-M projectors. The college aims at staying ahead of trends and technology in the construction industry with continued innovation, improved practical as well as theoretical teaching & learning. And this mission of the college is well supported by the enhanced, immersive, simulation space.
Christie’s improved stereoscopic Mirage WU7K-M projector, with WUXGA resolution at 6,300 ANSI lumens from dual lamps offers clear images, bright colors, uniform brightness, and with Christie Twist, users can control warping and blending to ensure that the image fits any dimension or shape. And the George Brown College has opted to use Christie’s visualization solutions after realizing that using the latest technology can facilitate learning and prepare their students for the future.
Zoran Veselic, Vice President of Visual Environments, at Christie, said that the Christie Mirage M series projectors are compact, very competent, and offer a low cost of ownership.
Pietro Ferrari, who is the professor and coordinator at the School of Architectural Studies at George Brown College, informed that the college will provide a program of BIM-related courses, which will also include an extensive post-graduate BIM Certificate program. This modern facility will provide learning opportunities to cover all aspects of virtual design and construction starting from project procurement to building processes and facility management.
