Christie Improves Its Iconic M Series Line with New Features for Even Better Performance and Value

Christie M Series models including Roadster and Mirage models now offer portrait mode and extended 450W lamp life

LDI/LAS VEGAS - (October 22, 2015) – The venerable Christie® M Series​ line of upgraded 3DLP® projectors include enhanced performance, portrait capabilities and a 500 hour increase in the 450W lamp. Building on seven years of success, the updated Christie M Series models continue to be ideal for flat or curved screens in rental staging applications as well as large auditoriums, board and conference rooms, houses of worship, and post production in either single or multiple projector setups. All enhanced Christie M Series 3DLP® projectors​ are 3D upgradable and deliver clean, crisp images on large screens.

Rental stagers will continue to enjoy Christie M Series’ ability to cut through show lighting while both rental staging and permanent installation applications will benefit from the improved high-efficiency 450W dual-mercury lamp, ensuring bright, brilliant images for 1,750 hours before a lamp change.

“Christie M Series has long been considered an industry workhorse and with portrait mode, an improved 450W lamp that adds 500 hours, as well as a new, easier to use remote featuring a greater range, Christie M Series is better than before,” said Mike Garrido, senior product manager, Christie. “There is also a dual input DisplayPort module allowing greater digital connectivity for the enhanced models.”
