High-brightness performance. Light weight design.

1DLP laser projector with the best lumen-to-weight ratio.

Christie D20HD-HS 1DLP laser projector

Part Number: 140-064101-XX

1DLP laser projector. HD resolution. 18,500 ISO lumens

There is no other 1DLP® projector with a better lumen-to-weight ratio. Achieving 18,500 lumens and weighing less than 100 lbs.(42 kg), the Christie® D20HD-HS is the lightest and brightest 1DLP laser projector on the market. The powerhouse performance makes D20HD-HS a viable alternative to similarly bright 3DLP projectors.

The D20HD-HS is not only bright. It produces amazing, true-to-life visuals too. This is thanks to the enhanced color accuracy of Christie’s patented BoldColor Technology and HD resolution.

Featuring the built-in Christie Twist​ warping and blending engine and compatible with Christie Mystique automated camera-based alignment solutions, the D20HD-HS offers users the tools needed to quickly and easily set up, align and maintain irregular screens and multi-projector displays.

Its light weight makes it easy to lift, ship and install, especially when used with the optional rigging frame while the omnidirectional capability gives you installation flexibility.​
