Camera-based alignment for flat screens and surfaces

Christie® Mystique Install – Essentials Edition is a single camera warping and blending tool designed to simplify the deployment of multi-projector systems on flat surfaces by allowing users to easily and accurately align Christie 3DLP® content across multiple projectors in minutes. With support for more than 12 projectors in a 2x3 double-stacked configuration, Essentials Edition is ideal for staging production companies and integrators 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.

Christie Guardian

Christie Guardian​ stays vigilant so you don’t have to. A powerful optional feature of Mystique Install Essentials and Pro Venue Editions​, Guardian constantly monitors a blended projection system for any misalignment. If Guardian does detect a misalignment, it automatically calibrates the image in real-time, quickly, invisibly, and without interruption, even when content is playing. Because Guardian eliminates the need for visible structured light patterns, audiences are unaware of any problem. Unique to Christie, there is no other technology that compares.
