Now shipping, the new Christie Mirage WQ-L is an LED-based 1-chip DLP projector with WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution and 800 ANSI lumens brightness. Described as the first and only true 120Hz full WQXGA stereoscopic projector in the world, it has an LED light engine that is said to deliver stable image quality over its lifetime of 60,000 hours (approximately 6.5 years).
It is said to offer sharp images and exceptionally accurate and lifelike colours. The Mirage WQ-L includes Christie ArrayLOC for synchronised colour and brightness management, which reduces calibration requirements.
Described as a powerful but cost-effective and flexible display solution, Christie is targeting the Mirage WQ-L at a wide range of markets, from aerospace and automotive to oil and gas, government, academia, and entertainment.
“We received positive reviews when we previewed the Christie Mirage WQ-L at SIGGRAPH 2013,” said Larry Paul, senior director of technology and visualisation solutions management, visual environments, Christie. “The projector’s sealed LED-based light engine eliminates the need for filters, reduces heat and makes it virtually maintenance-free. Its flexibility and low-maintenance design makes it the perfect display solution for a wide range of customers that require a high-performance system that is also eco-friendly and backed by Christie’s reputation for quality and reliability.”
The projector operates off Christie’s KoRE electronics and firmware platform, which is claimed to provide the most extensive level of input capability and control flexibility available for advanced visualisation systems.
