Christie® Mystique™ Essentials Edition is a single-camera warping and blending tool that simplifies the deployment and maintenance of multi-projector systems by letting users easily and accurately align content on flat screens and surfaces in minutes. With support for up to 12 projectors in a 2x3 double-stacked configuration, Essentials Edition is ideal for staging production companies, integrators and end users looking for an easy way to create simple stacks and blends on temporary or fixed installation applications.
A simple interface guides users through a step-by-step process and provides real-time feedback. Users can achieve professional, high-quality results working with complex projection arrays with no experience required. Working in conjunction with Christie Twist®, Essentials Edition enables the seamless warping and blending of a single display in less than two minutes per projector.
Automated color and brightness uniformity1 – At the click of a mouse, you can adjust color and brightness uniformity across projectors in multi-projector blended arrays to display one seamless image2, ensure a quality audience experience and save time when setting up your display.
Background compensation1 – Need to project on a less-than-ideal background? Using a color camera to detect large contrast differences on your screen or projection surface, Mystique makes automatic adjustments to compensate for visual imperfections such as smudges, dirt or other surface anomalies to provide a more uniform projected image and maintain image fidelity.
1 Requires Mystique Version 2.5 or greater and a single, color camera. Supported projectors: Boxer® 4K30, Mirage 304K, Griffyn® 4K32-RGB, D4K40-RGB, Mirage 4K40-RGB, Mirage SST, and Mirage SST-6P

A powerful optional feature of Mystique Essentials and Pro Venue Editions, Christie Guardian constantly monitors a blended projection system for any misalignment. If Guardian detects a misalignment, it automatically calibrates the image in real-time, quickly, invisibly, and without interruption, even when content is playing, so audiences are unaware of any problem.
