Showcasing Full Range of Digital Display Solutions to Fill Customer Needs
SIGGRAPH/ANAHEIM, Calif. – (July 18, 2013) – Christie®, a world leader in 3D visual display technology, will project a dominant presence at SIGGRAPH 2013 with a wide array of innovative visual solutions featuring powerful LED and DLP® projection technology, cutting edge 3D stereoscopic systems, and ultra-high resolution displays to meet the most demanding needs of the visualization, postproduction, exhibition, and immersive markets. A Platinum Sponsor of SIGGRAPH, Christie’s visual solutions will be found at booth #159, as well as at the Computer Animation Festival, Siggraph Art Gallery, partner exhibits and events, and throughout the Anaheim Convention Center.
The enhanced Christie HoloStation, a fully self-contained, personal visualization system for small spaces and the 84-inch Christie QuadHD84 LCD flat panel are among the solutions Christie will launch at SIGGRAPH this year.
“Christie visualization solutions are used in a wide range of industries that include academia, national laboratories, oil and gas, government, automotive and manufacturing. Our success is a direct result of our drive to provide our customers with the most innovative tools to meet their unique and demanding visualization needs,” said Zoran Veselic, vice president of Visual Environments, Christie.
World’s First and Only 4K DLP Resolution at 120Hz – the Christie Mirage 4K25 Projector
The recently launched Christie Mirage 4K25 will light up the Christie booth in brilliant high-resolution. Part of a series that also includes the Christie Mirage 4K35, the world’s only 4K resolution 3-chip DLP projector series running at true 120Hz. The Christie Mirage 4K25 is anchored by the new Christie TruLife™ electronics platform with proprietary 1.2 Gigapixel per second processing, floating point architecture and full 4096 by 2160 resolution at 120Hz for 2D and 3D. Rave Computer’s powerful Render Cube is driving content on the Mirage 4K25 at the show.
Designed for high performance, high resolution 3D immersive visualization applications, the Christie Mirage 4K series provides 10,000 to 35,000 lumens brightness flexibility, a variety of input options including DisplayPort, HDMI and HD-SDI, and built-in Christie Twist™ for curved screens and blended array visualization applications.
Christie HoloStation 3D Personal Visualization System – a Truly Compact and Self-Contained Design
Featuring an improved and enhanced design, the Christie HoloStation is a personal visualization system displaying up to 16.8 Megapixels of data in a 3D stereoscopic and interactive tracked environment in a compact (85-inch by 108-inch by 101-inch) footprint. With interactive 3D content, workstations and tracking system as options, it showcases the exact same type of powerful graphics processing designed for large-scale 3D visualization on a display solution optimized for one-to-three users in a small footprint. Easy to deploy, the Christie HoloStation is self-contained, affordable and easy to use. It is ideal for applications including aircraft design development, architectural walkthroughs and product design reviews, maintenance and service training, medical training and as a 3D virtual trainer.
Christie QuadHD84 Flat Panel
The Christie QuadHD84, an 84-inch LCD flat panel display offers quad high definition with 3840 by 2160 resolution and 1.07 billion colors for rich, pristine and detailed images even up close and for the ultimate realism. A unique quad interface coupled with a true 60Hz refresh rate provides flexible connectivity and smooth, real-time motion display of 2D content with 50,000 hours LED illumination life for reliability and cost-effectiveness.
“At SIGGRAPH, we seek to illustrate the exceptional versatility of this extra-large, yet easily deployable and affordable, ultra high-definition display. The native resolution of the panel is driven by four frame-locked HDMI or DVI sources at 60Hz. Users can quickly connect to high-performance workstations or image processors for greater flexibility,” said Larry Paul, senior director of Technology and Visualization Solutions, Christie.
Bundled Multi-Touch Collaborative Solution
Christie will preview its innovative interactive flat panel visualization bundle, with quad high definition, and multi-touch interactive technology providing unmatched resolution and performance capabilities in a size that can accommodate the most demanding performance and collaboration needs of research and development, government, education, business, and industry. At SIGGRAPH, Christie will showcase six-points of touch for a two-user experience, ideal for collaboration and video conferencing in high performance, professional visualization applications. Additional bundling options will help solve many common limitations of the typical large-screen display, including poor viewing angle options, low or no sound quality, and a lack of portability that can severely limit its placement in many collaborative environments.
Preview of the Christie Mirage WQ-L for Lifelike Colors
With consistent performance over an estimated 60,000-hours (approximately 6.5 years) life cycle, the LED-based 1-chip DLP Christie Mirage WQ-L projector features precise and lifelike colors with WQXGA (2560 by 1600) resolution. Cost-effective and highly flexible, the Christie Mirage WQ-L includes Christie ArrayLOC™ for synchronized color and brightness management and provides high performance 3D content at up to a true 120Hz refresh rate.
Christie Visual Solutions Dominate the Conference Floor
At SIGGRAPH’s “Computer Animation Festival,” Christie CP4230 and CP2230 Solaria® Series digital cinema projectors and several Christie HD14K-M 3-chip DLP projectors take “center stage” at two festival venues. The award-winning Christie HD10K-M, with its built-in warping, blending, color matching and portrait capabilities, is lighting up the SIGGRAPH art gallery and a third venue.
With the engaging interactive Christie Design Studio display at the NVIDIA® booth #803, engineers and designers will see how the imagination can become reality. The display uses an array of Christie MicroTiles® to create a stunning backdrop for four Christie G Series 1-chip DLP projectors onto a 3D-printed Audi R8 miniature.
Christie is also providing a Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP projector – featuring Xenon illumination with full HD resolution – and two Christie HD14K-M projectors for NVIDIA’s session sponsorship events. Combining 4K resolution and high frame rates at 60 frames per second for razor-sharp image detail and video with smoother motion and transitions, the Christie D4K2560 projector will be on display at the AMD booth #521.
