Christie scored another technical knockout today with the introduction of three new Boxer models featuring 2K resolution, 20,000, 25,000 and 30,000 center lumens.
Now available in multiple software performance configurations, the Christie Boxer Series offers choices based on resolution, brightness and budget requirements. With an upgrade path to higher brightness, resolution and performance capabilities, users pay only for what they need today, with an eye to the future.
“When Christie introduced the first Boxer projector we knew we had created a champion. Engineered, designed and built from the ground-up in our world-class research and development facility, the Christie Boxer is the culmination of years of experience working closely with leading rental stagers and AV professionals to understand their specific needs and expectations,” said Mike Garrido, senior product manager, Christie. “The three new models are built to the same quality and engineering standard as the multiple award winning Boxer 4K30 and include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, 12G-SDI and fiber input.”
Pound-for-pound, the Christie Boxer Series represents the smartest, brightest and lightest high-performance professional projectors available. Weighing-in at a trim and compact 160 pounds and including single-phase power, built-in warping and blending, omnidirectional installation capabilities, and a full-range of connectivity, the Boxer Series packs a punch for high-impact visual events. Christie Boxer is available in multiple software performance configurations, delivering various options to meet budget, brightness and resolution needs.
A standard feature on all 2K Boxer models, Christie TruLife Lite delivers 300 Mpx/s and provides superior video processing for 2K and HD sources. Featuring a floating-point processing engine with the equivalent of 25 bits fixed point processing resolution, Christie TruLife Lite provides increased dynamic range and superior scaling for an exceptional visual experience.
Field-upgradable, each upgrade takes only minutes until users can access the increased performance capabilities of any Boxer Series projector.
