Featuring high-quality DLP® technology, the Christie DS+ Series has proven to be the world’s favorite 3-chip, DLP® projector series. Highly reliable, low maintenance, DLP technology delivers high brightness and uniformity, unsurpassed color and control capabilities. The 3-chip SXGA+ engines are driven by Xenon illumination and deliver superior image quality and color repeatability.
Image Quality and Processing
With 10-bit image processing, the Christie DS+ Series offers high bandwidth signal processing, supporting functionality such as Picture in Picture and seamless switching between sources.
For added ease of blending in tiled applications, Digital Black Level Adjustment lets you match the blended (gutter) black levels with the nonblended black levels – whether multiple projectors on a single screen, or multiple screen displays.
Ease of Use
A user-friendly Graphic User Interface (GUI) makes operation and set-up of the entire Christie DS+ Series uncomplicated. The GUI enables full and easy control of the projector. Multiple control options let you choose what’s best for your application – built-in IR and wired remote keypad; RS-422 or RS-232 control; or through ChristieNET via the Ethernet port. Motorized lens functions provide power focus, zoom, horizontal and vertical offset – all at the touch of a button. Auto set-up instinctively recognizes sources and sets up correct brightness, contrast and position.
Operation and maintenance of this Series is easy as well. Field-alignable DMDs and a cleanable optical engine put full control in the hands of the user. Replacement lamp costs are low and Christie offers the best warranties on the market – 2 years parts and labor (excluding lamp).
With either 1.0, 1.2, 2.0, 2.4 or 3.0kW the Christie DS+ Series features user-replaceable, CERMAX® Xenon pre-aligned lamp modules with adjustable lamp power for lower brightness. The stable color temperature over the course of the lamp life and the power range provides the best lamp technology for color matching across multiple screens.
The Christie DS+ Series features a contrast ratio of 1600-2000:1 full field (450:1 ANSI minimum). With the motorized IRIS, you can adjust for high contrast ratio and better black levels, making these projectors ideal for any given application.
An optional suite of specifically-designed high performance lenses includes both fixed and zoom lenses ranging from 0.73:1 through to a 7.3:1 zoom and features a durable lens mount with motorized horizontal and vertical offset. With built-in light shutter, internal variable contrast aperture and quick lens insertion, the Christie DS+ Series is easy to work with.
The Christie DS+ Series offers installation flexibility and compatibility with any data, video or HDTV source in use today, from VGA to QXGA. The multi-standard video decoder and, horizontal and vertical scaling of all inputs gives you the ability to connect to virtually anything.
