Christie Joins HDBaseT Alliance, Intros HDBaseT-Enabled Projectors

Q-Series-main-0414Projector manufacturer Christie has joined the HDBaseT Alliance, announcing that some of its projectors are now HDBaseT-certified. HDBaseT, powered by the Valens chipset, enables all-in-one connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays through a single 100m CAT5e/6 cable, delivering uncompressed high definition video, including 4K, audio, Ethernet, control signals and up to 100 watts of power.

The Christie Q Series 1-chip DLP platform — with brightness options ranging from 8,500 to 10,000 lumens and XGA, WXGA and WUXGA resolutions — is equipped with eClarity, which Christie says offers advanced image processing that enhances images by providing greater control over image sharpness, gloss and shading. With built-in High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR), image “washout” in high ambient light conditions is eliminated by adjusting the dynamic contrast to recapture detail lost by excess ambient light on the screen. The Christie Q series features HDBaseT Connectivity for simplifying installation and management by allowing for video content, audio and control to be delivered over low cost CAT5/6e cabling to HDBaseT compatible products. Christie Q Series is also equipped with DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode for training purposes.
