Christie has debuted a brand-new range of laser phosphor projectors at Live Design International in Las Vegas. The Christie Crimson Series 3DLP laser phosphor projector delivers 25,000 lumens, and boasts 60Hz processing and the company’s BoldColor technology.

Positioned as an upgrade from the M Series and J Series projectors, the Christie Crimson WU25 and HD25 allow customers to forgo the need to purchase new lenses, while still enjoying the lamp-free technology afforded by the new laser range. The company says that this should lead to a low cost of ownership for rental, staging, and fixed installation customers.

Christie Crimson Series 3DLP laser phosphor projectors are expected to ship in February 2018.

More Christie Crimson Series features:

  • Utra-fast processing of Christie TruLife electronics
  • Built-in warp and blend capabilities of Christie Twist
  • By adding Christie Mystique, users will reduce multiple projector calibration times from hours to minutes, saving both time and labour costs
  • Crimson Series is built-tough and is easy to ship, handle and install thanks to its compact form factor, quiet operation and 360-degree orientation
  • Features an IP5X sealed, solid-state laser light source
  • Applications include theme parks, indoor and outdoor arenas and stadiums, entertainment venues, mega events, public spaces, and more
  • Almost identical chassis as the bestselling Christie Boxer
  • Features 20,000 hours of long life light
  • Customers needing higher frame rates and up to 120Hz for 3D visualisation or simulation applications, the new Christie Mirage HD25 and Mirage WU25 fit the bill

“Audiences will see an appreciable difference in both colour richness and brightness with Christie Crimson, never mind the 25,000 lumens,” says Curtis Lingard, senior product manager, Christie, in the press release.

“And with its long-lasting brightness, rock-solid reliability, TruLife Electronics, and BoldColor Technology, the Christie Crimson Series combines the best in laser phosphor technology with the brightness and colour that both fixed and live events stagers demand in today’s ever-evolving marketplace.”
