Panasonic’s 4K laser projectors were used to bring the latest adventure to life
Panasonic, the Official Projection Technology of the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, continues that collaboration with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, a new attraction within the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and Disneyland Park in California.
“When we first began speaking with Disney about the size and scope of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, it became clear this was going to be a groundbreaking attraction,” said John Baisley, Senior Vice President of Professional Imaging & Visual Systems, PanasonicSystems Solutions Company of North America. “Working with Disney, we developed and designed a Panasonic 4K visual technology solution that helps Disney seamlessly integrate physical and visual elements throughout the entire experience.”
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance brings guests into an epic battle against the First Order. As part of this thrilling new adventure, Disney worked with Panasonic’s 4K laser projectors, featuring crisp, vivid color rendition, superior resolution and dynamic contrast.
“Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most ambitious, advanced and immersive experiences that we have ever created,” said Paul Bailey, technical director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “With the help of Panasonic laser projection technology, we were able to bring a First Order Star Destroyer and other visual details to life, pixel by pixel.”
Disney has used Panasonic technology to bring captivating fan experiences to life for more than 20 years. In addition to supporting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attractions Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Panasonic’s projection technology is part of experiences across Disney Parks.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is now open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. It will open at Disneyland Resort in California on January 17, 2020.
