When done well, a single display using multiple projectors produces large, bright, high-resolution images. Done poorly, the display from multiple projectors will show a visible band where the projected images overlap.
Edge-blending technology solves that problem. The video signal from one projector is gradually faded out through the banded zone, while the adjacent projection or channel is faded up. The appearance of banding is eliminated and a single image is created across the screen.
What can blending and warping solutions offer?
Harness the power of multiple projectors – blending technologies make it fast and easy to get perfectly-blended displays.
Seamless, edge-blended displays – blend the edges of multiple curved images with repeated accuracy and speed.
Create ultra-high resolution displays - By combining multiple projectors, content creators can move beyond the inherent resolution limitations of single projectors by creating massive, seamless displays with incredibly high resolutions.
Project on any surface – Leveraging image warping allows the projected images to be adjusted to look correct on surfaces of any shape – from flat to curved to complex geometry like buildings and shapes.
Christie’s edge blending and image warping solutions
Designed with end-user applications in mind, Christie Twist lets you expertly edge blend multiple, curved images seamlessly, on all four sides, for up to six projectors. Precisely control multiple, edge-blended images, and warp displays to almost any projection surface – flat, curved or spherical.

The camera-based software automatically aligns and blends multi-projection systems in minutes with unsurpassed accuracy. Mystique is available in four application-specific editions to support automatic alignment for a variety of installations such as flat, cylindrical and curved screens, ice and court projection mapping, dome theaters, theme park dark rides and 3D projection mapping on buildings, landmarks and objects.
A powerful optional feature of Mystique Install is
Christie Guardian which monitors a blended projection system for any misalignment, automatically calibrating the image in real time, quickly, invisibly, and without interruption, even when content is playing. Guardian is exclusively available on Christie
Boxer 4K20, Crimson Series,
