21 Dec Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club Creates New Rooftop Experience for Guests
With a rooftop pool, cabanas, full-service bar and lounge chairs, the Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club was looking for a way to attract more visitors to this outdoor amenity. Based on his successful experience on a previous project while working at another property, the general manager contracted Bright Light Digital to assist in creating an outdoor movie theater.
Bright Light Digital designed a front projection system that incorporates an enclosed NEC 6500-lumen WUXGA projector matched with a 137″ Draper Nocturne outdoor electric screen installed on the front facade of the rooftop bar. With a 40+ feet distance between the projector location and screen, a long-throw zoom lens together with vertical and horizontal lens shift was utilized to fill the screen from edge to edge.
A commercial HD DVD player was incorporated into the resort’s existing audio system, allowing the hotel staff to switch between the house music and DVD player audio. In addition, the system also includes an additional input for watching live television and streaming content through the Internet.
The new rooftop projection system at the Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club provides a unique experience to its guests seeking an intimate outdoor experience away from the crowds yet with all the amenities one expects from a luxury destination.
