Following a recent successful showcase of the Christie Nitro YK50 on its stand at PLASA 2012, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) has been appointed by Christie as sole UK & Ireland distributor for its new Nitro Solutions series of integrated motorised yoke and projector systems.
Initially, AC-ET will concentrate on the dual-arm yoke Christie YK50, the smallest in the three product range, designed to support the Christie LHD700 3LCD, full HD projector, and LX700 XGA LCD projector — both offering a 7,000 ANSI lumens output.
“AC-ET has been a Christie partner for many years and is delighted to add another high performing product to our distribution portfolio,” said A.C. video division’s sales manager, Peter Butler. “The YK50 performed extremely well during testing and provides an exceptional quality of video with an extremely accurate yoke.”
In addition to the YK50, other models in the Nitro series include the YK100, a single-arm yoke designed for the Christie M Series and LX1500, and the YK200, a dual-arm design that supports the Christie Roadster Series (SXGA+ and HD models).
AC-ET will have a dedicated salesperson on the road that will be available to demonstrate the Nitro YK50, either with the LHD700 or LX700 upon request. They will also be showcasing it at major trade shows, such as the recent PLASA 2012 show.
“We are delighted to be extending our long relationship with AC-ET as we continue to make an impact in the staging and events markets,” said Dominique Denis, Christie EMEA market development manager for Nitro Solutions. “This latest move will make the unique Nitro series more accessible to LD’s and visual designers in this core market, and thereby extend their creative scope.”
