Christie debuts ‘world’s first’ 4K projectors in Japan
JAPAN: Christie has unveiled its Mirage 4K25 and Mirage 4K35 projectors at the 21st 3D & Virtual Reality Expo (IVR) at Tokyo Big Sight, which concludes on June 21st. According to Christie, these are the ‘world’s first and only 4K resolution three-chip DLP projectors running at 120Hz’.
‘With the launch of the Christie Mirage D4K25 and D4K35, Christie continues to demonstrate its leadership position and dedication to customers with solutions and services that our customers have come to expect,’ said Mamoru Hanzawa, director of Christie Digital Systems, Japan. ‘Our mission at Christie is to help our customers create and share the world’s best visual experiences.’
‘Christie is the first and only projector manufacturer in the world to provide full 4K DLP resolution at 120Hz,’ confirms Larry Paul, senior director of Technology and Visualisation Solutions, Christie. ‘This image processing is complemented by Xenon lamp technology from Ushio in Japan. With these two new Mirage projectors, Christie has truly set the bar high for visualisation solutions currently available on the market.’
The Christie Mirage 4K25 and 4K35 provide flexibility in brightness ranging from 10,000 to 35,000 lumens, a variety of input options including DisplayPort, HDMI and HD-SDI, and built-in Christie Twist for curved screens and blended array visualisation applications.
The projectors have been designed to offer ‘significant benefits’ to the global business and visualisation markets that rely on both 3D and single or multiple channel immersive displays. Their image quality, colour and uniformity enable visual accuracy in the vehicle development process, which can reduce risk and costs for research and prototyping, from concept to final design.
The stereoscopic capability of the Mirage 4K25 and 4K35 enables engineering work collaboration and visualisation of complex data sets for oil and gas, military or aerospace, museums, academia, government, national labs, heavy machinery and science and biotechnology industries.
