Also showing is the Christie D13HD-HS, a 1DLP® laser projector producing 13,000 lumens with HD resolution. With built-in camera-based warping and blending, this projector is easy to set up, whether on its own or as part a multi-projector array. Its compact and lightweight form factor, omnidirectional capabilities and optional rigging frame make the D13HD-HS perfect for challenging installation spaces.

Making its first public appearance in the Middle East will be the Christie Spyder X80, the most powerful multi-screen windowing content processor and management solution available, and winner of the Best Rental/Staging Product for Live Events at InfoComm 2017.
