Christie announced the new LX1000, what the company says is the ultimate 3LCD projector for staging. At 10,000 ANSI lumens, the dual-lamp LX-1000 includes 10-bit image processing that delivers natural color-tone reproduction, good picture stability, and flawless video playback. The inorganic LCD panels also result in less color degradation over time than conventional LCDs and are designed for maximum longevity. In addition to delivering true 10,000 ANSI lumens, the LX1000 produces deep, rich blacks without compromising brightness through its inorganic 3LCD technology. It works with any video format, including SDTV and HDTV and any computer input, allowing the highest level of detail possible for large-venue projection.
In a unique step, recognizing that cost of ownership is a significant consideration for many in the 10,000 lumen market – especially in rental and staging – Christie designed the LX1000 for maximum cost efficiency and low cost of ownership. In addition to the longevity of its inorganic 3LCD panels, the projector includes a 10,000-hour auto-filter system and has a lamp life of up to 3,000 hours; with an optional input card, it can easily network with an existing projector inventory.
The LX-1000 was introduced at the ISE Show in Amsterdam this week, but you can read all about it here.
This really does sound like a great projector, and I can think of lots of applications for it. I especially like that attention is being paid to overall cost of operation. But one note: In an arena where our applications are as diverse as our companies and clients are, I personally refuse to concede that there’s an “Ultimate” anything.
