Christie introduces Crimson Series of 3DLP laser phosphor projectors with 25,000 lumens and BoldColor Technology

Roadworthy and reliable with 360-degree orientation benefits both staging and fixed installation applications

CYPRESS, Calif. – (November 15, 2017) – The new Christie® Crimson Series of 3DLP® laser phosphor projectors, introduced today and showing at LDI 2017, delivers up to 25,000 ISO lumens, 60Hz processing, and Christie BoldColor Technology in a compact and rugged package delivers low cost of ownership for rental, staging and fixed installation customers. For further cost savings, customers can upgrade from their existing Christie M Series and Christie J Series to experience the lamp-free technology of the Christie Crimson WU25 and HD25 without needing to purchase new lenses.

Users will appreciate the ultra-fast processing of Christie TruLife™ electronics and built-in warp and blend capabilities of Christie Twist™. Moreover, by adding Christie Mystique, users will reduce multiple projector calibration times from hours to minutes, saving both time and labor costs.

Designed with the technician in mind, the Crimson Series is built-tough and is easy to ship, handle and install thanks to its compact form factor, quiet operation and 360-degree orientation. Featuring an IP5X sealed, solid-state laser light source, Crimson projectors provide years of reliable, low-cost, and virtually maintenance-free operation while delivering vibrant, lifelike colors in theme parks, indoor and outdoor arenas and stadiums, entertainment venues, mega events, public spaces, and more.

Using an almost identical chassis as the bestselling Christie Boxer and featuring 20,000 hours of long life light, Christie Crimson Series can withstand the rigors of the road and high-usage applications. For customers needing higher frame rates, and up to 120Hz for 3D visualization or simulation applications, the new Christie® Mirage HD25 and Mirage WU25 fit the bill.

“Audiences will see an appreciable difference in both color richness and brightness with Christie Crimson,” said Curtis Lingard, senior product manager, Christie. “And with its long-lasting brightness, rock-solid reliability, TruLife Electronics, and BoldColor Technology, the Christie Crimson Series combines the best in laser phosphor technology with the brightness and color that both fixed and live events stagers demand in today’s ever-evolving marketplace.”

Christie Crimson ships in February 2018.
