Christie has announced the launch of its new Griffyn 4K50-RGB all-in-one pure laser projector. Delivering 50,000 lumens, the Griffyn Series projector was said to be “turning heads’ during its launch at InfoComm 2022. It will begin shipping in July.
With RGB pure laser technology, and 98% of the Rec.2020 colour space – the colour space closest to what our eyes can see – the 4K50-RGB pure laser projector is designed for “exceptional experiences” and is said to deliver the rich, bright colour that applications including projection mapping, themed entertainment and live events require. Coupled with reliable illumination of 25,000 hours to 50% brightness, the Griffyn 4K50-RGB “sets a new standard” for 3DLP projection.
The most compact and lightweight 50,000 lumen projector currently available, weighing only 197 pounds (89.3 kg), it doesn’t have external chillers or laser racks. Adding to its versatility is Christie’s integrated TruLife+ electronics ‘all-in’ connectivity, which eliminates the hassle of removable options cards. With Christie’s new Electronic Colour Convergence (ECC), users should easily be able to adjust red, green or blue individually via remote control for perfect colour alignment.
“The Griffyn 4K50-RGB is the pinnacle of projection technology for the ProAV market,” said Joel St-Denis, Christie director of product management.
Griffyn 4K50-RGB features integrated Christie Twist, for warping and blending, which enables compatibility with Christie Mystique, Christie’s automated camera-based alignment and recalibration solution to quickly install, align, calibrate and maintain multi-projection systems. For applications that require higher frame rates, including themed attractions, the 4K50-RGB can achieve 4K resolution at 120Hz, and up to 480Hz with HD resolution.
