Christie announced the addition of the DHD670-E and DWU670-E projectors to its product line-up. The new E-Series product platform is designed to offer performance and value to the fixed installation market, company officials said.
The Christie E-Series single-chip DLP projectors deliver up to 6,000 ANSI lumens and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, making them ideal for small auditoriums, and medium-to-large meeting, training, and conference rooms, according to Christie. The DHD670-E model offers native HD (1920 x 1080) resolution while the DWU670-E provides WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution for maximizing image detail.
Both units have dual mercury lamps and each has the unique capability to optimize its lamp configuration for maximum single-lamp operation. The DHD670-E also uses a high-brightness six-segment color wheel (RGBCYW) with an optional rich color wheel (RCGCYM) available when color precision is crucial, according to the company. The color wheel is designed to maintain bright colors while eliminating artifacts from fast moving content.
“Christie listened carefully to its customers and the projectors are just what the mainstream fixed installation market asked for: superior, feature-rich, single-chip projectors,” said George Tsintzouras, senior director of product management for Business Products at Christie, in a statement.
The Christie DHD670-E and DWU670-E come with a three-year parts and labor warranty. They are scheduled to ship in November.
