Power, Performance and Portability in Compact Design

NAB/LAS VEGAS – (April 24, 2006) – Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, introduces the new Christie DS+26 digital projector, the smallest, high resolution, single-chip DLP® projector available on the market. The Christie DS+26 features true SXGA+ 1400x1050 resolution, a powerful 2500 ANSI lumens and a 2500:1 full field contrast ratio to deliver images of exceptional brightness, sharpness and clarity. The Christie DS+26 is the only compact DLP projector on the market with 100% vertical lens shift for distortion-free imaging. Ideal for unobtrusive installations, the DS+26 compact size and quiet operation is ideal for smaller conference rooms, boardrooms and training rooms.

The Christie DS+26 projector's high performance optics features a wide-range zoom lens that provides for ultimate flexibility in virtually any installation configuration. Simplified inputs offer maximum connectivity with most analog, digital and video sources, including HDTV. SXGA+ resolution makes it compatible with laptop computers and high-end workstations.

"At under four inches high and just over six pounds with 2500 lumens brightness, the DS+26 is powerful enough for mobile presentations and cost-conscious installations," remarked Neil Wittering, director of product management, Business Products, Christie.

The Christie DS+26 also features front-access lamp replacement and up to 3,000 hours of operation from a single lamp, providing a low cost-of-ownership. The projector's built-in RJ45 port enables monitoring and control over any TCP-IP network.

The Christie DS+26 projector will be demonstrated at Christie's NAB booth South Lower Hall # 1519 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27, 2006.
