Christie Twist

Manage arrayed projectors to display virtually any image, anywhere with Christie Twist.

Christie® Twist gives you three software options for warping and blending on any Christie 3-chip DLP projector. This software allows pixels to be mapped more easily onto any projection surface, maintaining proper geometry and accurate pixel-to-pixel alignment. This solution provides the high-quality warping and blending required for arrayed projectors to operate as a single, uniform display with maximum image quality and minimum system latency. Christie Twist technology also provides networked projector control by allowing the user to launch a virtual remote from within the Twist software with all the functionality of standard infrared remotes.

Each version of Christie Twist is tailored to specific needs: from simple flat screen multi-projector warps and blends to highly multifaceted applications. Whether the surface is cylindrical, curved, jagged, or any other non-flat shape or surface, Christie has the right Twist solution for the project.
