True 120Hz Operation

Maximize dynamic image quality for real-world simulation content

​Simply increasing the number of pixels doesn’t always equal higher image quality – in fact, it can create more blur. But when you combine pixels with a higher update rate of 120Hz, you’ll dramatically reduce motion-induced artifacts. The result: stunning, true-to-life images.

A system approach to reducing artifacts using higher update rates

A typical 60Hz update rate is suitable for some applications. But, as the complexity and detail of the simulation increases, so can unwanted motion-related visual artifacts.

Two common artifacts that can occur as a result of low update rates: Motion-Induced Blur (MIB) and Spatio-Temporal Aliasing (STA).

We need to address these issues and allow simulation systems to develop beyond the current standard. And we need to do this while still meeting the brightness requirements without affecting image quality and simulation complexity. We're able to do this by using simulator systems capable of producing 120Hz update rates.

The Christie® Matrix projector offers a unique, dual-input architecture that gives users the ability to deliver true 120Hz RGB operation. This results are dramatically improved dynamic image quality and resolution without image artifacts or perceived loss of brightness, while maintaining compatibility with current Image Generator technology and without having to change the visual database.
