Christie in LED projection first26 January 2010
Purpose-built for control room and video-wall applications, Christie Entero LED is an LED-illuminated, 1-chip DLP product line that features a ‘zero maintenance’ design. The LEDs are rated at above 60,000 hours – the equivalent, says Christie, to almost seven years of dependable operation.
Moreover, with no consumable components such as lamps, filters or colour wheels to replace, the system is said to deliver ‘the ultimate in uninterrupted, 24/7 performance for exceptional reliability and low cost of ownership’.
The specifications of the Christie Entero LED projection units include built-in Christie LiteLOC and Christie ColorLOC for automatic, independent brightness and colour management, as well as Christie ArrayLOC, which automatically matches colour and brightness levels for every cube across the entire display wall on a continuous basis.
Meanwhile, the 600 ANSI lumens Christie Entero LED projection engine is capable of illuminating Christie’s 50in, 67in and 72in display cube platforms.
Jim Gavloski, director of product management at Christie, commented: "The new Christie Entero line of LED-based rear projection modules has no equal in the industry for long life and dependability. They are as close to ‘worry free’ as you can get in a videowall display solution. It marks a major new development in reliable, high-performance videowall solutions that are easier to maintain and more economical to operate."
