Embedded Christie Twist™
Standard in all M Series models, Christie Twist™ enables seamless white and black level edge-blending of multiple curved images, faster and more easily than through traditional, manual methods. Controlled by an easy-to-use GUI, users can expertly control and edge blend or stack multiple curved images quickly and seamlessly. Images can be warped to fit virtually any dimension or shape display. Embedded Christie Twist™ ensures that all M Series projectors work with value-added accessories, such as AutoStack™ and AutoStack™ Premium.
Each M Series projector has the ability to send signals to multiple projectors (up to a 3 x 3 array)* without any additional hardware or software – lowering your installation cost. The projectors in the tiled array can then show only the portion of the signal that they need to project.
* Subject to input bandwidth limitations.
This easy-to-use LCD keypad includes:
- Contextual menus provide a fully-featured, intuitive interface; removing the need for a cluttered keypad
- Large, four line LCD display
- Adjustable brightness and timed LCD off mode
- Intuitive keypad design that lights up when features are active – making it user friendly
- Active keys are color-coded amber to indicate that selections will result in changes visible to the audience.
Embedded edge blending and color matching
Advanced blending capabilities and Comprehensive Color Adjustment (CCA™) ensure digitally accurate color matching and uniformity across multi-screen blended or tiled images.
ChristieNET™ web interface
ChristieNET enables users to access all projector menus and controls through a web interface without disrupting the live presentation. This allows for real-time adjustments and monitoring of each projector on the network - regardless of geographic location.
In total, there are four input card slots available. Each projector is equipped with a standard set of input cards.
i) Dual SD/HD - SDI input card
The Dual SD/HD-SDI input card accepts both standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) serial-digital interface (SDI) signals, and enables the user to connect two of either types of signal. Both single-link HD and dual-link HD signals are accepted. This card also has two SD/HD-SDI outputs to enable “loop-through” for its respective input.
ii) Analog input card
The Analog input card accepts an analog video signal input over a 5 BNC connector interface. It can accept RGBH&V signals over five connectors, as well as component YPbPr signals on the RGB inputs.
iii) Dual-link DVI input card
The dual-link DVI input card has a 15-pin VGA connector for analog signals and a DVI-I connector which can support a single- or dual-link DVI HDCP video signal. The card can simultaneously support a digital signal on the DVI input and an analog signal on the VGA port.
iv) DMX512 interface card
This interface card supports the DMX512 communication standard through two 5-pin XLR connectors.
v) Video decoder input card
The Video decoder input card accepts various types of standard definition (SD) video, including CVBS (composite video), S-video, and component. It accepts NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.4, PAL, PAL-N, PAL-M or SECAM formats. This card has two mini-DIN
connectors (for S-video signals) and four BNC connectors that can be grouped to allow combinations of CVBS, S-Video, YPrPb or RGB video sources.
vi) Twin HDMI™ input card
The Twin HDMI input card accepts two HDMI inputs and provides 12-bit deep color handling on the input. Additionally, advanced loop-through allows any input on any input card to be looped through to the two HDMI outputs on the card.
vii) Twin DisplayPort input card
The twin DisplayPort input card accepts digital image data from one or two DisplayPort inputs. It supports signals compliant to the VESA DisplayPort version 1.1a standard and is also HDCP compatible. This card also has two DisplayPort outputs to enable loop-through for its respective input.
The dual-frequency (38 kHz and 455 kHz) receiver ensures the projector receives signals at increased distances between the remote and projector, and reduces the effect of interference from lighting.
This feature lowers the cost of ownership by reducing power consumption and extending lamp life when the projector is not in use. In this mode, if a signal is not detected, the projector will slowly dim the lamps then shut off one lamp, and finally if there is still no signal, the system will go into standby mode. If a signal is detected during the ramp-down phase the unit will revert back to its full power, dual lamp mode.
When your presentation depends on the full attention of your audience you don't want them focused on the noise from your projector. The filter-free design with auto-sensing fan and temperature sensors automatically adjust for the quietest operation possible.
