Christie Introduces Its Most Advanced 3D Projector Yet: The Dual Lamp Christie Mirage WU7K-M

CYPRESS, CA – (June 23, 2010) – Christie®, the first to market a fully stereoscopic 3D DLP projector nearly a decade ago, announces the latest edition of its popular Christie Mirage Series, the Christie Mirage WU7K-M. Featuring a full WUXGA resolution display and dual lamps for excellent uniformity, the Christie Mirage WU7K-M is a compact, 6,300 ANSI lumens powerhouse.

With dual-link DVI support at 330MHz full bandwidth and up to 10,000:1 contrast, the projector delivers crisp images, vibrant colors and uniform brightness – all at the lowest cost of ownership. The Christie Mirage WU7K-M stereoscopic 3D display system meets the precise needs of the energy markets, life sciences, government, education and medical research where performance, reliability, easy maintenance and low operating cost are critical to project success.

Built on proven 3-Chip DLP® technology, the Christie Mirage WU7K-M is versatile and efficient, with three modes of 3D input: standard frame rate of up to 120Hz, as well as frame-doubled content for maximum source compatibility and flicker-free operation. With the addition of a second input module, the Dual Input 3D mode enables the display of a frame-locked, passive stereo source for high-performance, active stereo at 120Hz without the need for an external passive to active converter. It features an extended lamp life of up to 3,000 hours per lamp, low power consumption of only 20W in standby, and filter-free, auto-sensing fans and temperature sensors, making it the industry’s most efficient “green” advanced visualization projector.

“Christie has built a global reputation as a pioneer in the field of 3D, from the world’s first 3D active stereo 3-Chip DLP projector in 2001 to today’s cutting edge 3D digital cinema technology,” said Zoran Veselic, Vice-President of Christie's Visual Environments. “Our proven expertise lies behind the development of the Christie Mirage WU7K-M, whose stereoscopic image quality and reproduction consistently exceed expectations.”

The Christie Mirage WU7K-M can project on virtually any screen or surface, with a full suite of specifically-designed lenses and a standard built-in Christie Twist™ that enables advance image warping and edge-blending capabilities. The dual lamp platform provides greater choice and installation flexibility with a more optimal aspect ratio.

Christie also offers fully scalable and customizable visualization solutions. The new Christie Mirage WU7K-M projector will be on display at Christie’s booth, 23-14, at IVR in Tokyo, Japan from June 23 to June 25, 2010.
