Christie brought the Roadie 4K45 and upgraded Christie Twist software to its line-up at the Live Design International (LDI) show in November. Christie also demonstrated the benefits of using automatic projection mapping tools using a 3D digital sandbox and Christie G Series 1-chip DLP projectors. The booth also displayed the Christie MicroTiles in a 1-unit by 5-unit display and Christie M Series.
Christie Roadie 4K45 is a bright lamp-illuminated projector. Rugged, reliable, and road tested, the 45,000 lumen Christie 4K45 offers a higher level of image brightness for rental stagers to use in concerts, sports events, amusement parks, conventions, live events, annual meetings, casinos, and more. It features Christie TruLife for a clear image quality.
The upgraded Christie Twist family presents three options– each for different application requirements. ‘Christie Twist’ software is a free download from the Christie website. ‘Christie Twist Premium’ and ‘Christie Twist Pro’ are paid upgrades and provide additional functionality for more complex projects.
For either fixed or rental staging applications including live events, theme parks, and other applications, the Christie HD10K-M, part of the Christie M Series, has built-in image blending and warping capabilities, operates in full portrait mode, and offers a 3D upgrade path. A Christie Spyder X20 managed the content.
Christie partnered with Show Management, coolux and Da-Lite. At LDI 2014, Show Management was using two Christie J Series and two Christie E Series projectors while the coolux booth featured six Christie J Series and one Christie Mirage WU14K-M projector. Da-Lite used one Christie HD14K-M.
