Christie adds four advanced technology GS Series laser phosphor modelsChristie BoldColor technology meets Rec. 709 standard for HD color reproduction
More advanced than previous GS models, the four professional-grade models use a grid-based warping and blending processor and also have an option for camera-based warping, blending or stacking to make setups faster and simpler. They can also be rotated 360-degrees and used in portrait orientation, making them ideal for complex setups in rental staging and medium-sized fixed applications. At only 35dBA, users won’t be distracted by projector noise, and the new, sleeker design blends seamlessly into any environment. Lightweight and compact, the four new models deliver stunning images using a laser phosphor light source with a 20,000 hour life for low maintenance and a low cost of ownership.
Christie BoldColor Technology
While all four models tout improved color performance, the 850-GS models incorporate Christie BoldColor Technology for premium color performance. The increase in color balance to improve color accuracy results in the extreme bold colors audiences prefer.
“With two new HD and two more WUXGA laser phosphor models, Christie has a wide-ranging 1DLP® lineup including both lamp and laser phosphor options ranging from 3000 to 13,000 lumens without limiting options to one technology or another,” said Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. “Our customers said they still need the choice between lamps and laser phosphor, and Christie offers that choice.”
Featuring bottom-side HDMI connectivity and rear cover, the new Christie GS models can be ceiling mounted and have a very clean look without all the unused connections, cables and keypad being exposed. All RJ45 connections are fully compatible with the rugged and lockable XLR-shell connection to protect and avoid having to re-terminate cables onsite.
“Designed primarily for a digital workflow, the new models have a 3GSDI, DVI-D and two HDMI inputs but still allow for analog signal via an HD15 connection making the new GS models a perfect fit for live events and fixed installs,” added Lingard.
Available in black or white and backed by a three-year parts and labor warranty, the new Christie GS Series models ship in the summer of 2016.
