At ISE, Christie announced three upgraded Christie G Series projectors, as well as the all new Christie Q Series. Providing 6,000 lumens and WXGA/HD/WUXGA resolution, the three new Christie G Series models are each high brightness 1-chip DLP projectors, while the Q Series ranges from 8,500 to 10,000 lumens and XGA, WXGA, and WUXGA resolutions in a 1-chip DLP package.
Spec’d at 6,000 lumens and a single-lamp design, the upgraded Christie G Series is aimed at higher education, government facilities and houses of worship. They each use a new six-segment color wheel and ship with a standard lens — but offer six optional lenses with various throw ratios. Connectivity includes HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort. The Christie DWU600-G replaces the DWU550-G and the Christie DHD600-G replaces the DHD550-G. Along with a boost in brightness, the new G Series models also offer 33 per cent longer lamp life over the previous models and are equipped with DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode for training purposes. More information on the G Series is here.
The new 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 Christie’s eClarity — an image processing system that the company says offers 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 is also equipped with DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode for training purposes, all in an elegant design.
