Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment, and industry, launches the latest in its series of powerful and versatile 3-Chip DLP HD resolution presentation products, the Christie Roadie HD+30K and Christie Roadster HD18K projectors. Providing seven powerful new models ranging from 5000 to 30,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and 1600:1 to 2000:1 full-field contrast ratio, Christie projectors power the most demanding presentations in boardrooms, houses of worship, postproduction, broadcasting, and rental/staging marketplaces.
Christie Roadie HD+30K Projector
Generating a 30,000 ANSI lumens of brightness at 2K-resolution (2048x1080), the new Christie Roadie HD+30K projector features sophisticated DLP technology in a native HD+ product. Combined with excellent price/performance on the market and extensive warranties, it’s the world’s brightest and best HD+ image, according to Christie, featuring a unique split-body design, a scooped hood for improved airflow, built-in rigging points, and body handles or optional stacking/rigging frame. With user-replaceable bulbs that can be automatically aligned at the push of the button and user-friendly controls, the Christie Roadie HD+30K is quick to setup and maintain.
Christie Roadster HD18K Projector
The new Christie Roadster HD18K projector is a powerhouse of illumination that delivers 17,500 ANSI lumens, the highest ANSI lumens offered in a native HD product in a compact design, company representatives say. Powered by proven 3-chip DLP technology and Xenon illumination, the projector features a true HD 1920x1080 engine that provides razor-sharp resolution, crisp images, exceptional color, and brightness uniformity, and 1600-2000:1 full-field contrast ratio. Built-in stacking and rigging points make it easy to set up for redundancy or to increase brightness, with user-replaceable bulbs that feature less power consumption than the competition.
Versatile Projectors—Maximum Features
Every projector in Christie’s HD series displays both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios, with HD 4:4:4 capabilities and Digital Black Level control that can be used with the built-in edge blending feature. These projectors include seamless switching, Picture-in-Picture, Christie LiteLOC, which enables constant screen brightness, and the Christie ILS (Intelligent Lens System) for zoom and focus. A built-in RJ-45 networking port uses the ChristieNET networking solution for remote monitoring and control of projectors. True 10-bit image processing ensures superior color and contrast for images of unparalleled quality.
Christie’s HD series product portfolio includes 16:9 offerings ranging from native 720p resolution to the most recent native 1080p models and up to the HD+ resolution (2048x1080)—providing solutions for the needs of the HD market. Christie’s latest HD products include the Christie HD5Kc at 5000 ANSI; the Christie HD6K at 6500 ANSI; the Christie HD7Kc at 6500 ANSI; the Christie HD8K at 8000 ANSI, and the Christie Roadster HD12K at 12,000 ANSI. The Christie HD5Kc and Christie HD7Kc feature color correction to project richer color depth for a film-like experience – ideal for home theater, postproduction and the broadcasting marketplace.
Capping the series are the new standards in high performance 3-Chip DLP technology, the Christie Roadster HD18K with 17,500 ANSI, and the Christie Roadie HD+30K at 30,000 ANSI lumens.
“The Christie series of HD resolution projectors is a virtual tour de force of power, performance, brightness, and features. It continues Christie’s unparalleled history of industry firsts, which include the first high brightness 3-Chip DLP HD projectors, the smallest, high-performance 3-Chip DLP, and the brightest 3-Chip DLP HD projectors in the marketplace,” declares George Tsintzouras, senior product manager, Business Products. “The HD series is a remarkable achievement that meets every budget and presentation need today and beyond, backed by Christie service, technical expertise and solid reputation for quality.”
