Christie Mystique – Pro Venue Edition

Part Number: 900-100286-XX

Camera-based alignment for flat and curved screens and surfaces

Christie® Mystique™ Pro Venue Edition is a single-camera warping and blending tool that simplifies the deployment and maintenance of multi-projector systems on flat or curved screens and surfaces by letting users easily and accurately align content in minutes. The Pro Venue Edition can support an unlimited number of projectors in a single array where a single camera can capture the entire screen in its field of view. 


Pro Venue Edition is ideal for staging production companies, integrators and end users looking to easily and quickly align and recalibrate multi-projector arrays, including stacks and blends in temporary or fixed installations, as well as stages and sports playing surfaces.

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™, Pro Venue Edition enables the seamless warping and blending in a single display in less than two minutes per projector.

Add the additional security and constant vigilance of Christie Guardian

A powerful optional feature of Mystique Essentials and Pro Venue Editions, Christie Guardian​ constantly monitors a blended projection system for any misalignment. If Guardian detects a misalignment, it automatically calibrates the image in real-time, quickly, invisibly, and without interruption, even when content is playing so audiences are unaware of any problem.

Marked surface alignment

The marked surface alignment feature leverages the pre-set markings on a surface to align the projectors rather than relying on LED or laser-based marker systems. This makes it ideal for applications such as stages for live performances and ice or court projection mapping where the surface has known features such as face-off circles, hash marks and other distinct markings. To make the process even easier, Pro Venue Edition recognizes small changes in the position of the projectors, camera and even the projection surface and automatically resets the alignment to the original position, simplifying and accelerating regular maintenance with the click of a button.​
