Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of using a Christie 4K projector?

The benefits of using a Christie 4K projector include the resolution, or quality, of the image due to smaller pixels and a higher pixel density when compared to an HD resolution projector or screen of the same size. Christie 4K projectors are also equipped with a variety of features such as advanced color management, lens memory, and geometric warping for flexible installation and easy integration.

What technology does a Christie 4K projector use?

Christie 4K projectors use DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology, which offers better color control and light efficiency than any other projection technology.

Can Christie 4K projectors handle high frame rate video?

Yes, Christie ProAV 4K projectors are capable of high frame rate (HFR) content playback. Our ProAV projectors are capable of displaying 60 Hz standard. Our 3DLP models offer Mirage, our proprietary optional software upgrade license that allows the projectors to display 4K at 96–120 Hz.

For cinemas, Christie pioneered the development of HFR for the latest advanced formats such as Cinity. The CineLife+ electronics platform on all Series 4 projectors can display 4K content up to 120 Hz. We are the only manufacturer capable of showing 4K, 3D, and 120 fps per eye on a giant cinema screen.

Native 4K vs 4K UHD in projection: What's the difference?

The most obvious difference is in the resolution, which is the number of individual pixels that make up the image on the screen.

A 3DLP native, or true 4K projector achieves the full 4K resolution pixel count of 4096 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high.

By comparison, 4K UHD images are 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high. A 1DLP or 3DLP 4K UHD projector uses pixel-shifting technology to rapidly shift pixels in the projected image by a fraction of a pixel to simulate 4K UHD resolution which is higher than the projector’s native resolution.

4K UHD images are visually appealing and detailed, meeting the needs of many applications. However, 4K UHD images have a slightly softer appearance than a native 4K image, which provides a higher level of detail and sharpness and a higher pixel density to provide a more lifelike, immersive visual experience.

What is pixel-shifting?

Pixel-shifting technology is typically used in 4K UHD projectors to enhance image quality and resolution by simulating a higher resolution (4K UHD) than the projector's actual native resolution.

It works by rapidly shifting pixels in the projected image by a fraction of a pixel, creating "in between" pixel locations in the same positions as the pixels would have been in the target higher resolution image. This process is done at high speed and is imperceptible to the naked eye.
