Christie to Debut 60,000 Lumen Projector Next Week

christie-laser-0415Christie is setting a new visual display standard at NAB in Las Vegas with a brand-new 60,000 lumens using 3P laser. Yes, 60,000. It will be demo’d in the Christie Innovation Theater where — using RGB laser technology in a large, open theater — Christie will demonstrate Rec2020 content and 60,000 lumens of brilliant light using 3P laser. Rec2020 color provides a better representation of real world color than the commonly used color spaces for television and cinema.

Also at NAB, the Christie D Series 3LCD single-lamp digital projector series with brightness ranges of 6,000-8,000 lumens and 10,000:1 contrast ratio, will debut in the USA. A new 0.38:1 Ultra Short Throw (UST) lens with an all-glass element lens that Christie says offers greater thermal stability and reduced image drift compared to lenses using plastic lens elements for greater flexibility in designing panoramic multi-projector displays, while providing high brightness and lifelike images.

We will report more on those as they are officially rolled out, but this is a heck of a scoop!

Christie is here.
