Christie Matches Color with Projection Arrays
Christie announced the availability of Christie Advanced Color which achieves uniform calibration of simple to complex arrayed displays.
Christie announced the availability of Christie Advanced Color, a new way to color-match projector arrays in advanced visualization and simulation environments. As the latest addition to the company's TrueIMAGE line of integration solutions, Advanced Color achieves uniform calibration of simple to complex arrayed displays, company officials said.
The system integrates a precision light meter with the company's advanced proprietary software to perform calculations of light output measurements. By pointing a handheld light meter at various targets on the projected array, the user captures light output measurements with a single click. The software's graphic user interface performs the core calculations for precise results and calibrates the projectors to a high level of uniformity for color matching. The color uniformity doesn't change until the user chooses to re-tweak the system.
"We put our customers at the center of the process in developing new solutions for today's sophisticated visual displays so they can set the pace and focus on the display, not on maintaining it," said Larry Paul, senior director, solutions & product management for Christie's Visual Environments division, in a statement. "Christie Advanced Color is a unique offering that takes the complexity out of color matching multiple projector arrays--saving on time, resources, maintenance, and system downtime, while still delivering expert results. With no technical expertise required, any number of users can maintain the display."
The TrueIMAGE suite of integration solutions includes the AutoCal automatic display system calibration, and MotoBlend motorized optical blending. Christie Advanced Color can be ordered as part of the AutoCal solution or as a stand-alone option with a Christie integrated display. All TrueIMAGE solutions are compatible with Christie's current line of Matrix and Mirage 3-chip DLP projectors.
