Just in time for the big ISE show in Barcelona this week, there's a new laser projector joining Christie's HS Series, and it's the first 4K 1DLP projector available with 22,500 ISO lumens (19,000 ANSI lumens). The Christie 4K22-HS joins the DWU23-HS, DWU19-HS, and DWU15-HS that were released last fall, growing the HS Series to 11 different models.
The 4K22-HS is a 4K UHD (3840x2160) 1DLP laser phosphor projector—one of three 4K projectors in the HS Series—that uses a 0.95-inch DMD chip. It has a 3-segment (RGB) color wheel that runs at 4x speed. Included is Christie's updated version of their BoldColor technology, BoldColor+ that delivers improved blacks and more natural colors over the original version. The 4K22-HS is capable of frame rates up to 240Hz in 1080p, and 60Hz in 4K.
All but the 0.84-1.02:1 short throw lens from the WUXGA HS Series of lenses are compatible with the 4K22-HS, including a 0.38:1 UST lens and a 0.65-10.8:1 throw option. The projector also supports active shuttered and passive polarized stereoscopic 3D.
Christie Twist warping and blending is on board, and there's the option to add Christie Mystique—an automated camera-based alignment and calibration software for calibrating, aligning and maintaining multi-projector systems. The projector is also compatible with the new Christie Intelligent Camera for auto-focus, and color calibration and optimization.
