Why buy a Christie clearance item?

​Christie's Clearance Centre offers incredible savings backed by a comprehensive warranty and the skill and expertise of our factory trained technicians.  If you are willing to accept a few exterior scratches and a lamp with a higher number of hours on it, a Christie clearance item may be the perfect cost saving solution for you and your business application. 

What is Christie's clearance inventory?

Christie's clearance inventory comes from one of two different sources:

  • New products that have been recently discontinued
  • ​Factory refurbished product that Christie has previously used for tradeshows and customer demonstrations

What is Christie's product refurbishing process?

Christie refurbishes our digital projection equipment with our trained technical support technicians and many of our products are introduced back into the production line for final re-assembly.  Outlined below are the basic steps a projector will go though during the refurbishment process:

  • Physical inspection
  • Lamp inspection and lumen output measurements
  • Convergence testing
  • Pixel defect testing
  • Search for optical defects and clean surfaces
  • Inspect all inputs
  • Test RS232 commands
  • Upgrade required components and firmware to latest versions
  • Final system testing

What is Christie's lamp policy for refurbished products?

If the Christie refurbished projector is attaining less than 75% of the specified lumen output, or if the lamp has more than 300 hours of use on it, the lamp is replaced with a new one.

What is the difference between a refurbished product and a prime product?

Outside of the reduced brightness due to a partially used lamp and some cosmetic defects caused by the transportation and rigging of our demo equipment, very little is different between a refurbished and a new projector. All systems and components are rigorously tested, and if found to be below standard, are replaced with new.  For detailed information pertaining to the condition of the product on the Clearance Inventory listing, click the linked product or accessory name.

Who pays for shipping?

The customer pays for shipping from the indicated warehouse location.

 All of Christie's refurbished products and accessories are only refurbished by trained Christie support technicians.

 Many projectors get placed back into Christie's ISO 9001 certified production line for final re-assembly during the refurbishing process.

If the Christie refurbished projector is attaining less than 75 percent of the specified lumen output, or if the lamp has more than 300 hours of use on it, the lamp is replaced with a new one.

 All Christie projectors going through the refurbishing process are rigorously tested before they are put back in the box and shipped to customers.
