Christie’s ‘Future-Proof’ 3D Projectors

Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

With 3D becoming ever more popular, Christie Digital Systems is on top of the trend with its offering of a wide spectrum of compelling 3D and 3D-ready products geared for more markets including corporate and conference rooms, education, large events, rental/staging and more.

Christie’s product range features 3D upgradeable projectors, giving the choice to customers to upgrade when they are ready to future-proof their investment. The products will be shown at the ISE 2011 at the Amsterdam RAI, Feb. 1-to-3.

For customers looking to upgrade their existing Christie M Series projectors to 3D capability, Christie offers an upgrade path for its mid- to high-end 3-chip DLP projectors with the Mirage M Series advanced 3D functionality.

Christie’s successful Mirage Series 3D DLP projector line has therefore expanded with the addition of six models to bring high performance 3D solutions to new markets. The new Christie Mirage M Series projectors offer complete compatibility with today’s 3D standards to support growing demands for 3D displays – from home entertainment and video gaming, to museums, education and rental/staging.

The most compact 3-chip DLP projectors in their class, the six models feature a new dual-input image processor and a wide range of input options to integrate with any 3D signal and format. For 3D entertainment requirements, the Christie Mirage M Series is ready for Blu-ray 3D video, PS3 and other gaming consoles and meets the mandatory 3D spec for HDMI v1.4a. Combined with embedded Christie Twist for advanced image warping and edge-blending, and a full suite of specifically designed lenses, the projectors are easy to use and configure for visually stunning 3D.

“Christie is the first to offer products that are 3D upgradeable,” says George Tsintzouras, senior director, product management for Business Products at Christie. “Our 3-chip DLP projectors are 2D and 3D capable, so whether you need 3D today or tomorrow, we’re ready whenever you are to future proof your investment.”
