Spotlight on Christie’s new digital projectors15 September 2010
Christie has announced the addition of the DHD670-E and DWU670-E projectors to its extensive product line-up. The new E-Series product platform is said to bring improved performance and value to the fixed installation market.
The Christie E-Series 1-chip DLP projectors deliver up to 6,000 ANSI lumens and 5,000:1 contrast ratio; ideal for small auditoriums, and medium-to-large meeting, training, and conference rooms. The DHD670-E model offers native HD (1920 x 1080) resolution while the DWU670-E provides WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution for maximising image detail.
Both units have dual mercury lamps and each has the capability to optimise its lamp configuration for maximum single-lamp operation. The DHD670-E also utilises a high brightness six-segment colour wheel (RGBCYW), with an optional rich colour wheel (RCGCYM) available when colour precision is crucial. The colour wheel ensures radiant colours while eliminating artefacts from fast-moving content, leaving audiences with only razor-sharp images.
The DHD670-E and DWU670-E come with a three-year parts and labour warranty and are backed by Christie’s renowned sales and service support. The projectors ship in November and are currently available for demonstration. The new projectors were on display at this week’s IBC show in Amsterdam.
