Christie Announces 4K Projectors for Business Customers

Christie Twist 4K4K projectors are typically reserved for the cinema market, though there has been an increasing desire for their use in other applications, mainly business. As a result of this growing demand, Christie has announced the official launch of the Christie Twist 4K projector at the International Broadcasting Convention 2012, otherwise known as IBC 2012, which recently took place in Amsterdam.

The Christie Twist 4K was designed for Christie 4K, 3-chip DLP projectors used in business applications and enables the warping, blending and color matching of multi-projector displays in large-screen, fixed installation applications. This means use in places like amusement parks, automotive designs, museums and planetariums that require exceptionally large images in a multi-channel format.

The Christie Twist 4K creates uniform, tiled images with superior color consistency across the entire display whenever you are using multiple projectors. According to Senior Director of Product Management Business Products at Christie George Tsintzouras, “Whether it’s a flat or curved surface, with Christie Twist 4K, ProAV professionals can now blend and color match images from multiple 4K projectors, easily creating large, ultra-high resolution canvasses that will amaze audiences like never before.”

The Christie Twist 4K is equipped with Quad DVI input, which allows for the use of standard DVI sources. “With Christie Twist 4K, Christie Expands its 4K solution offerings and gives end users the ability to create large, high-pixel density panoramas that show their content with the finest detail, without distortion,” Tsintzouras added.

There has yet to be any official word on pricing for the Christie Twist 4K, though a rough release date has been announced. According to the company, the Christie Twist 4K is set to ship out to customers sometime in October 2012.

DPI Upgrades the Brightness of All LED Projectors

Digital Projection International logoDPI, known formerly as Digital Projection International, has just upgraded the brightness across the board for every single one of its LED projectors. The company’s entire range of LED projectors, which includes the M-Vision and dVision series, has been outfitted with Helmholtz-Kohlrausch (H-K) effect, allowing an increased brightness.

The Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect has been defined as “a change in brightness perceived color produced by increasing the purity of a color stimulus while keeping its luminance constant within the range of photopic vision” by The International Electrotechnical ┬áCommission.

Each of DPI’s LED projectors is now capable of delivering a far greater luminance. In addition to that, certain models, like the ones that are priced between $13,000 and $40,000, are even breaking right through the 1,000 lumen threshold. This new ability to increase the luminance also comes as a result of newly available components and tailored engineering.

Other projectors from DPI that come with the increased brightness also include the new dVision 35 series LED models. These models also have 3D capabilities and, like all of the company’s products, offer ‘Lifetime Illumination’, meaning that a lamp will never need to be replaced.

DPI also asserted that all of these projectors use a tiny amount of the power to run compared to traditional UHP lamp-sourced projectors. That basically means that not only are you getting an increased brightness output but you are also consuming less energy, making for a brighter, greener viewing experience.
