Christie is demonstrating a broad range of solutions on stand 1-H70 including the company’s latest development in AV-over-IP system architecture and performance, the newest laser phosphor projectors in the Christie stable, plus a new videowall solution and the latest extra narrow pixel pitch display range.
Christie Terra is described as a complete native 4K, 4:4:4 content delivery system – from player to display – which helps customers leverage the benefits of AV-over-IP systems. Built on standardised SDVoE technology, it delivers a standardised approach to maximise the scale, scope and user-experience while maintaining the integrity of a creator’s source material without degradation, compression or latency, says the maker.
Terra supports video formats up to 4K at 60Hz and provides high-quality transport and processing of uncompressed, zero-frame latency, artefact-free video over affordable 10G Ethernet components.
The new Christie Crimson Series of 3DLP laser phosphor projectors deliver up to 25,000 ISO lumens, 60Hz processing, and Christie BoldColor Technology in a compact and rugged package with a low cost of ownership for rental, staging and fixed installation customers. Christie says users will appreciate the ultra-fast processing of Christie TruLife electronics and built-in warp and blend capabilities of Christie Twist. Moreover, by adding Christie Mystique, users will reduce multiple projector calibration times from hours to minutes, saving both time and labour costs. Christie says the 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. Featuring an IP5X sealed, solid-state laser light source, Crimson projectors are designed to provide years of reliable, low-cost, and virtually maintenance-free operation while delivering vibrant, lifelike colours.
The new Christie Velvet CorePlus LED video walls have been created to deliver design flexibility for a value-priced LED video wall solution. Ranging in pixel pitches from 1.2 to 4.0 millimetres, the single architecture scales to popular resolutions including 4K, is fully customisable with remote and on-board options, and can be both installed and serviced from either the front or back.
Good for public spaces, casinos, theme parks, houses of worship, broadcast, control rooms, and conference rooms among many other applications, its direct mount system allows for a narrow installed depth of less than 100 millimetres.
CorePlus includes a direct mount system, making for quick and easy installation directly onto flat walls – eliminating the need for an additional mounting structure and thereby further reducing total system cost. Moreover, with the new E600 Controller, end users can easily scale to 4K at 60Hz.
Also compatible with the E600 controller is the Apex 0.9mm LED video wall, a new member of the Christie Velvet Apex Series. Now available in ultra-fine pixel pitches from 0.9mm to 2.5mm and featuring a 16:9 aspect ratio, the Apex Series displays content in high detail, making it a good choice for applications where image quality and clarity is paramount. The new offering allows for scaling to popular resolutions in a smaller square metre area as well as reducing optimum and minimum viewing distances.
