Ultimate design freedom. Spectacular visual experiences.

High performance RGB laser projection system featuring an ultra-compact, fiber-coupled projection head and TruLife™ electronics.

Christie Mirage SST fiber-coupled RGB laser projection system

Part Number: 168-001102-XX

35,000 lumens, 4K resolution, 120fps high frame rate performance, 5,000:1 contrast ratio
Engineered specifically for complex, high-end applications like planetariums, dome theaters and theme park attra​ctions, the Christie® Mirage SST combines unmatched system design flexibility with incredible image fidelity to enable the creation of the next-generation of entertainment experiences.

Design and installation freedom
With its innovative fiber-coupled, ultra-compact and lightweight projection head, the Mirage SST provides several design and installation advantages. Its small form factor allows it to be installed independently, or as part of a multi-projector array, into tight, challenging environments. The remote light source also allows the chilling equipment to be located away from the projector head where noise won’t impact the audience’s enjoyment of the show.

Unprecedented high frame rate performance
Featuring Christie TruLife™ electronics, the Mirage SST delivers high frame rates of 120fps at 4K resolution. For customers wanting even higher frame rates, an optional license can be purchased enabling 480fps at 2K resolution performance. High frame rates immerse audiences in smooth, highly-detailed, ultra-realistic video by removing motion blur and strobing effects in fast-moving images.

Deep, saturated colors
Reproducing an expansive color gamut that approaches the full Rec. 2020 color space, the Mirage SST produces deep, highly-saturated colors. Content creators now have access to an entirely new palette to choose from while audiences benefit from stunning, true-to-life visuals.​
