  • Big power in a small package - the new Christie HS series

    Christie has set another industry benchmark with the launch of the world’s brightest 1DLP® laser phosphor projector: the Christie HS Series which is not only the world’s first 13,000 Lumen 1DLP laser phosphor projector but it also brings the industry amazing colour balance  with a new proprietary solution, BoldColor Technology.

    The two models, Christie D12HD-HS and Christie D12WU-HS, respectively deliver HD and WUXGA resolution in a compact chassis that is the quietest 10,000+ lumens laser phosphor projector on the market.

    Christie has developed BoldColor Technology that enables the HS Series to produce excellent colours with exceptional colour balance. Building on the versatility of the H Series launched  last year, the laser-phosphor HS Series is also extremely small, low profile, light and extremely quiet  (a mere  40db). It’s a package that makes the HS Series not just the most flexible 1DLP laser phosphor projector but an exceptionally affordable laser phosphor projector at this brightness level.

    Perfect for those needing bright and rich images including rental stagers, corporations, hotels, public spaces, and entertainment venues, the Christie HS Series is capable of 360-degree orientation and portrait mode with colour matching and advanced blending, warping and stacking software built in, making it extremely flexible. The Christie HS Series also offers a full (six) lens suite covering 0.84:1 up to 7.2:1,  3GSDI and DVI-D loop through connections so signals can be daisy chained without external boxes, and optional fog filters.

  • The upgraded Christie Q series - brighter and quieter than ever before

    The new compact and quiet Christie Q Series models deliver more brightness for greater image clarity and performance  

    The Christie DWU1052-Q and Christie DHD1052-Q, both feature improved warping and blending for more installation freedom, performance and imagery.

    For applications including concerts, live theatre, lecture halls, conventions, hotels, public spaces, and other venues where bright and precise imagery is key, end users will experience the benefits of the improved blending and warping and portrait or landscape modes whether the image is displayed on a flat or curved surface.

    Built into the same small chassis as the existing  Q Series, the 1052-Q models bring even more brightness in the same unbelievably small form factor. This allows it to fit into small spaces and go unnoticed while the focus of the audience remains on the stunning images, all at a low cost of ownership.

    Christie DWU1052-Q and Christie DHD1052-Q have:

    • 10,000 lumens (WU), 9500 lumens (HD).
    • Small form factor.
    • Super quiet - reduced noise levels thanks to a unique cooling design that minimises the number of fans.
    • Built-in automated dual color wheel for best colour or brightest light.
    • e-Clarity image processing.
    • High Dynamic Contrast Range.
    • Versatile lens suite including 0.38:1 ultra-short throw.
    • Edge blending and warping capability and instant configuration.
    • Easy connectivity with 3GSDI and HDBaseT.
    • Built-in LCD display for status and monitoring.

    We expect to be stocking the new Q series from April 2016.
