Christie’s booth featured a projection mapping display utilising four Christie Roadster S+22K-J models, all with onboard Christie Twist. Featuring content designed and mapped by Bartkresa design, Christie’s projection mapping display at InfoComm illustrated the effect of mapping onto a pyramidal structure with deep facets and dramatic angles.
“Nine new Christie M Series projectors, two new 3LCD platforms and a new Pro AV 4K projector join a wide range of display options – including standard and custom-sized, stackable displays and LCD flat panels – to send a clear message,” commented Kathryn Cress, vice president, global and corporate marketing, Christie. “And that message is that Christie remains the only single source manufacturer that supplies proven, leading-edge technology and products for business, all backed with substantial warranties and industry-leading service and support.”
Designed for small-to-medium sized venues in higher education, corporate environments and government agencies, the new Christie projectors LW401, LWU421, LWU501i and LW551i (3LCD) projectors all feature wide-screen capabilities and provide various resolutions and brightness. These models are designed for multi-screen applications. They feature both Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture, allowing end users to display two input signals or video teleconferencing for collaboration. And with the lens memory recall, users can lock-in and quickly recall lens-shift positions settings, making these projectors ideal for multi-screen applications.
Nine new additions to the dual-lamp, Christie M Series platform – including three Mirage models – comprising the Christie DS+14K-M, Christie HD 14K-M, Christie WU14K-M, Roadster S+14K-M, Roadster HD14K-M , Roadster WU14K-M, Mirage DS+14K-M, Mirage HD14K-M and Mirage WU14K-M projectors were made at InfoComm 2012. These 14.000 lumen projectors target auditoriums, boardrooms, conference rooms, houses of worship, post-production and live event users who need high brightness and 3-chip DLP technology. Featuring built-in Christie Twist, which enables edge-blending and warping capabilities, as well as shipping standard with built-in portrait mode capabilities, the new M Series projectors are also equipped with ‘hot swappable’ mercury lamps.
Targeting high resolution markets including amusement parks, automotive designers, museums, broadcasters, simulation, 3D users and planetariums, the Christie D4K25 projector offers 3-chip DLP technology, native 4K resolution for precision image detail, while providing 25.000 lumens of brightness and the flexibility to use different lamp powers, depending on application needs.
The Christie Entero LED 70” Display System is a HD LED stackable display system featuring a new based on a proven platform that was first introduced by Christie in 2009. Owing to the use of solid-state illumination, the Entero LED 70” has no lamps to replace, no moving parts and no consumables. It is said to be a zero-maintenance design.
It also features Christie ArrayLOC automatic brightness and colour balancing technology, which monitors and adjusts colour and brightness levels across the display wall in real time.
Rounding out Christie’s new offerings is the Christie TVC-1700, the latest generation of Christie video wall processors. Based on Windows 7 and running on a 64-bit OS architecture, it supports single- and dual-link DVI inputs and a wide range of video inputs. Its PCIe bus architecture is suited for capturing and displaying high-resolution, high frame rate (HFR) content, while providing processing power to support multiple inputs and outputs simultaneously. It powers large arrays for controlling every display device over the entire screen. The TVC-1700 is managed through Christie MASTERSuite software – an application suite providing access to any source of visual information found in a control room.
