The Christie APS Series, launched on January 7, is being shown for the first time at a public show. Featuring an efficient laser illumination system and patented optical light path design that uses only one motor, the APS Series provides up to 20,000 hours of operation at a low cost of ownership. Backed by a five-year warranty and a competitive price-point, the APS Series looks to be a 5,000-6,500 lumen class leader.
Ten Zones with one common theme
Unique to Christie is that all of its visual displays – including at ISE 2019 – are powered and driven by Christie’s own content management and processing tools. Rather than engaging with numerous suppliers for their visual display needs – often resulting in longer lead and installation times – Christie customers can get it all under one roof.
Zone 1 and Zone 2 feature the next evolution of Christie MicroTiles with a preview of Christie Pandoras Box 10-bit color depth image quality while Zone 3 – the Hospitality Zone – showcases Christie Access Series flat panels and Christie Captiva ultra-short throw projectors, which are located near the main reception area.
The Christie stand also features a full complement of LCD walls in both Zone 4 and Zone 6, which will include Christie Access Series, Extreme Series and the stunning Christie FHQ981-L UHD flat panel.
Zone 5 is where ISE visitors can see Christie View for the first time in a tech preview, as well as Christie Mystique automated camera-based alignment software for 3D projection mapping.
Over in Zone 7, Christie is featuring a demonstration of its unique Christie Guardian automatic, real-time, invisible alignment tool and is showcasing its content management and video processing with demonstrations that include automated content generation software using artificial intelligence to generate new content from existing content.
Zone 7 also features Christie Pandoras Box, Christie Terra, and Christie Spyder X80 – the world’s most powerful multiscreen windowing processor. The trio of tools will be controlling the content, providing AV switching and distribution, and all image processing throughout the Christie stand, delivering an extraordinary visual experience.
Zone 8 – the projection zone features not only the aforementioned APS Series, but also Christie Boxer, Christie HS Series, and Christie Crimson Series. Rugged and versatile, the 3DLP Christie Crimson Series is easy to ship, handle and install thanks to its compact form factor, quiet operation and 360-degree orientation. Ranging from 7,000-20,000 lumens and resolutions including WUXGA, HD and 4K UHD, Christie HS Series offers a powerful, reliable and cost-effective option for almost any high-use application. Setting benchmarks in brightness, color accuracy, power requirements, and form factor, the HS Series pushes the envelope of 1DLP capabilities.
In addition to the European debut of the Christie D4K40-RGB projector, Zone 9 also features the Christie Boxer 4K30 lighting up the lower half of the legendary Christie wolf head with a kaleidoscope of images. Visitors can look up and see truss mounted projection in Zone 10 where two Christie Boxer 4K30 and two Christie D20WU-HS Series projectors will light up the top and sides of the wolf head.
Christie is also pleased to partner with Da-Lite, which will provide the screens for the Christie stand while both the LANG AG and SDVoE stands are demonstrating interoperability with Christie Terra, and other SDVoE-member products, to demonstrate a flexible AV over IP system.
