Designed for small and mid-sized applications to provide 20,000 hours of operation, Christie has developed the Captiva DWU500S 1DLP ultra short-throw laser projector. As the third generation of the Captiva Series, improvements include a 50% increase in maximum screen size, a significant increase in brightness and upgraded WUXGA resolution. The Captiva DWU500S provides 4,500 ANSI lumens and can display 1920x1200 resolution images up to 3.8m diagonal in landscape or portrait orientations. With its 0:25:1 ultra- short-throw lens making it suited to installations where space is limited, the four-corner geometry can be adjusted to present precise images. Available in black or white, the new wall mount promotes a more horizontal and vertical offset.
Available in a range of five pixel pitches (0.9mm, 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 1.8mm and 2.5mm), the Core Series II LED videowall tiles offer ease of installation for videowalls of any scale. Weighing 6.5kg each, the new tiles are 23% lighter than the original Core Series tiles. Featuring a slimmer 38mm depth form factor together with an ADA-compliant, direct-mounting structure and concealed cabling, Core Series II videowalls are designed to be easier to install and completely front serviceable. Core Series II produces vivid, clear and detailed images that are 33% brighter than its predecessor, at 800 nits calibrated brightness. When paired with Christie’s optional E600 HDR10-compatible controller with image processing, the Core Series II delivers content in 4K@60Hz with low brightness enhancements.
The Ultra Series of LCD displays for tiled videowalls has been extended with the creation of the 55-inch FHD554-X. Designed for control rooms, security and surveillance centres and critical viewing environments, the new model combines a 3.5mm bezel width with an ultra-thin profile. The electronic feature set includes high bandwidth together with HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.2 inputs that support streaming of 4K content and 4K UHD signals at 60Hz to deliver content to videowalls. Display Port 1.2 outputs promote the daisy-chaining of 4K@60Hz sources creating large videowalls up to 25 panels in size. An OPS slot further simplifies setup by allowing sources like PCs and media players to be directly integrated into the display.
Available in 6,000, 7,200 and 8,100 ANSI lumen brightness options in WUXGA resolution, the Inspire Series is a family of fixed zoom lens 1DLP laser projectors. Incorporating laser illumination, the three projectors offer up to 20,000 hours of low-maintenance operation to 50% brightness. Room meeting flexibility is enhanced with AMX and Crestron connectivity. With the built-in proprietary Christie Twist image warping and blending software, up to six projectors can be arrayed with up to 81 grid control points. The Inspire Series is also compatible with the Christie Mystique Lite automated camera-based alignment software for up to three Christie projectors.
In brief, Christie has announced the release of Version 2.5 of Christie Mystique, introducing Mystique Essentials and Pro Venue Editions as two new features to improve overall image fidelity and uniformity in blended projector arrays when projecting on a flat or curved surface.
