Christie expands 1DLP range with four GS Series laser projectors11 April 2016
Christie has added four GS Series laser phosphor projectors to its 1DLP lineup, including two HD models with BoldColor technology.
The new models are designed for discreet installations in corporate meeting rooms, trade shows and entertainment venues. They use a grid-based warping and blending processor and also have an option for camera-based warping, blending or stacking.
In addition, each projector can be rotated 360° and used in portrait orientation for more complex setups in medium-sized fixed applications. The laser phosphor light source provides 20,000 hours of low maintenance operation and a low cost of ownership.
The two 850-GS models incorporate Christie BoldColor technology for improved colour performance, which meets the Rec. 709 standard for HD colour reproduction.
“With two new HD and two more WUXGA laser phosphor models, Christie has a wide-ranging 1DLP lineup including both lamp and laser phosphor options ranging from 3,000 to 13,000 lumens without limiting options to one technology or another,” said Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. “Our customers said they still need the choice between lamps and laser phosphor, and Christie offers that choice.”
Featuring bottom-side HDMI connectivity and rear cover, the new Christie GS models can be ceiling mounted and all RJ45 connections are fully compatible with the XLR-shell connection to protect and avoid having to re-terminate cables onsite.
“Designed primarily for a digital workflow, the new models have a 3GSDI, DVI-D and two HDMI inputs but still allow for analogue signal via an HD15 connection making the new GS models a perfect fit for live events and fixed installs,” added Lingard.
Available in black or white, the new Christie GS Series models ship in the summer of 2016.
