Christie highlights at Prolight+Sound 2016: From super-bright laser phosphor projection to the latest Pandoras Box
Germany – Visitors to the Christie booth at the Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt, Germany 5th - 8th April will experience several new solutions for entertainment, integrated systems and content creation from the leader in visual display technology.
Christie continues to supply long-lasting projectors with its HS Series, which tests at 12,500 centre lumens. The 1DLP Christie HS Series – which will be prominently displayed at the booth – is compact and delivers a wide selection of features and connectivity. In Frankfurt, visitors will see the rich and vivid colours generated by a 3x faster colour wheel and the integrated BoldColor Technology that enables the HS Series to produce excellent colours with exceptional reproduction. With more than 12,000 lumens in HD and WUXGA resolution, these 1DLP projectors belong to the world’s brightest available products in their class.
Christie is also demonstrating the versatility of the multi award-winning and multi-directional Boxer, which set an industry benchmark. The expanded family now includes the new Boxer 2K20, 2K25, and 2K30 all of which are upgradeable to true 4K at 120Hz. Some of the extended family will be on the booth and, at the show, for the first time, Christie is presenting a demonstration of just how whisper-quiet the multi-award winning Boxer 4K30 is. A Christie Boxer will be at head-height so visitors can hear for themselves how Christie has hugely reduced the Boxer Series’ noise levels.
Christie will also showcase its versatile Christie Velvet LED Series, which are perfect for a variety of indoor applications including architectural, entertainment and critical viewing environments. Christie Velvet is certified at the system-level and offers 24/7 operation and 100,000 hours of service-life.
The new Pandoras Box 5.9 will be managing and controlling the content. Pandoras Box Version 5.9 now encodes files up to four times faster, delivers additional codec information through the file inspector, and includes a completely redesigned Patch-Tab and new templates that deliver faster workflow for remote control from a lighting desk. Users can create their own profiles, as well as export and import patch templates with exceptional ease. A Cues Tab has also been introduced for an overview of all cues, which can be used to navigate through the timeline and leave individual notes per cue. The new Kiosk Mode can act as a simple stand-alone playback device that can be set up and operated without special training by anyone without ‘digging deep’ into the menu.
At the show you can see ID tagging in action. The ID Tag Tracking is a smart and easy way to track people on stage to be followed by moving lights or to create trackable stage props for freely moving projection mapping.
