ISE 2017: Christie to showcase new and upcoming products1 February 2017
Christie will introduce, preview and showcase a variety of new products next week at ISE, occupying two adjacent stand locations for the first time.
Among the products, the flatpanel systems include the Christie Aspect flatpanel portfolio, which offer three series of LCD panels: Performance, Ultra, and Extreme scaling downwards in bezel size and upwards in performance. Models shown will be the FHD552-X, FHD492-XV, FHD552-XV and the latest addition to Christie’s Extreme Series, the FHD553-XE-H with a 1.7mm combined bezel.
The projectors on show will be models from the L Series, Captiva Series, GS Series, HS Series, Mirage Series and Boxer Series, with between 3,500 and 30,000 lumens and WXGA to native 4K resolution. Launching at ISE this year is the DHD599-GS and DHD850-GS, 1DLP laser phosphor projectors, the latter shown with Christie new ultra-short throw lens.
Christie will also exhibit its MicroTiles LED-illuminated modular and reconfigurable video cubes, which have been installed in product display plinths. There will also be a preview of the forthcoming direct-view LED display series – Christie Ultrascape (pictured), which has been developed to introduce the inherent advantages of direct-view LED required for 24/7 mission critical applications.
Launched last October, Christie Pandoras Box 6.0 media server and Widget Designer 6.0 will also be exhibited. Christie Pandoras Box combines the latest rendering technology with intuitive media and show control. The latest version of Pandoras Box features editable meshes and warps, UV map adjustments and live canvas masking. Widget Designer has also been redesigned with an HTML5 user interface and native HTML support, including CSS styles. Together, Christie Pandoras Box 6.0 and Widget Designer 6.0 allow show managers and integrators to build flexible, fully customisable control interfaces.
In addition Christie Mystique is coming to Europe for the first time following its launch at InfoComm 2016. Mystique simplifies the process of creating large-scale visual experiences; its combination of software, hardware, and services delivers the full range of Christie’s expertise and technology to support integrators in their various projection applications.
Finally, Christie will present its expansion to the Christie Phoenix Series content distribution and management system, as part of a dual showcase with the Christie Phoenix EP (Embedded Processor) and Christie Spyder X20.
