Christie continues setting the bar higher at NAB Show 2013
Christie is showcasing its newest offerings at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show from April 8-11 including the world premiere of 3-chip DLP technology displaying 4K resolution at 60 Hz with the introduction of the new Christie D4K2560 and Christie D4K3560 projectors.
These new 4K resolution products are the first to include the new Christie TruLife Electronics platform – a quantum leap in video-image processing and a breakthrough in high frame rate/high resolution video projection for the ultimate in hyper-realistic images.
The Christie D4K2560 is displaying full 4K resolution at 60 Hz and, along with the Christie D4K3560, the Christie D4K2560 provides precision image detail and video with smoother motion and transitions for a more vibrant and appealing visual experience. Featuring flexible 4K inputs, both projectors are ideal for applications requiring high brightness and 4K resolution with immaculate video and image quality.
Innovation Theatre provides Sneak-Peek at the Future of 3D Cinema. The spacious and inviting Christie booth also features the Entertainment Solutions Innovation Theatre presenting a ground-breaking comparison between 3 F.L. and 14 F.L. while emphasising the benefits of higher brightness 3D.
The Christie booth also features the ultramodern Christie broadcast set with a concave backdrop of 138 Christie MicroTiles. The 48 centre tiles feature Christie Interactivity Kit and Christie Jumpstart while two portrait-mounted 55-inch Christie FHD551-X flat panels with damage-resistant, optically bonded Corning Gorilla Glass frame the sides of the fully integrated exhibit. All display technology is mounted using rp Visuals custom-mounted display solutions with two Christie Spyder X20 video processors managing the content.
Utilising thin and lightweight Gorilla Glass, Christie is the only brand to offer a bonded solution that retains the LCD flat panel’s sleek, narrow-bezel design without increasing the image-to-image gap between panels.
Located in the Business Products zone is the new Christie LW720 3LCD projector. Building on the successful Christie LW650, the Christie LW720 is a compact and affordable LCD projector with 7200 ANSI lumens and 2500:1 contrast ratio for high brightness and deep, rich blacks. The single-lamp LW720 has one of the largest lens shift ranges*, giving customers the ability to place the projector in a variety of locations in museums, houses of worship, large conference rooms and rental/staging applications.
Also at NAB for the first time is the Christie FHD551-W outdoor flat panel. Introduced earlier this year, the rugged 55-inch Christie FHD551-W with optically-bonded glass is a professional grade full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) solution for a wide range of applications including outdoor sporting events and venues, architectural applications, entertainment parks, the hospitality and resort industry, transportation, and other outdoor environments not usually applicable with standard LCD panels.
Following on the heels of a successful launch late last year, Christie is pleased to showcase the Christie DHD775-E and Christie DHD550-G 1-chip DLP projectors. Fast becoming go-to solutions for displays in board rooms, classrooms and meeting spaces in government facilities, both the E Series and G Series comes with native HD resolution models and easily connect to today’s computers either wired or via wireless connectivity option. The Christie DWU775-E features an optional dual processor warp module for blending and warping images, colour matching and an optional stacking system – making it ideal for applications requiring geometric adjustments and/or multi-projector setups and rental and staging applications. For fixed applications, the Christie DHD550-G provides exceptional image quality boasting 5000 lumens from a single mercury-lamp design. With high brightness and better price/performance than other projectors in its class, the Christie G Series is an excellent choice for myriad display applications where value and image quality are deciding factors.
The Business Products Zone also includes two Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projectors demonstrating their ability to flawlessly blend and warp images.
Christie Products will also be at five additional locations. A 3-unit tall by 2-unit wide array of 72-inch WU cubes will be displayed at the Vizrt booth while the Quantel booth features a Christie CP4230 DLP Cinema projector using a Christie Spyder X20. At the Autodesk booth, two Christie Roadster HD14K-J 3-chip DLP projectors and a Christie Spyder X20 will be displayed while, at the Alcorn McBride booth, 24 Christie MicroTiles will be showcased. Creator of the Pandoras Box media player, coolux Media Systems is featuring the Christie YK50 dual-arm projector yoke supporting the Christie LX700 projector, 12 Christie MicroTiles and four Christie HD10K-M 3-chip DLP projectors.
Finally, The Ryerson School of Media will have dozens of students travelling around the show floor in their phosphorescent orange shirts, encouraging visitors to stop at the Christie booth.
