Christie Awarded QuantaDyn Contract to Supply U.S. Air National Guard With 10 New Christie Matrix StIM WQXGA Projectors For Joint Terminal Attack Controller Program

Christie WQXGA Projectors Provide 120Hz Refresh Rate, Fully Adjustable Smear Reduction and Separate IR Channel for Night Vision Goggle Training

I/ITSEC/ORLANDO, Fla.  – (December 5, 2012) – Christie®, which introduced the world’s first DLP® simulation projection system with LED illumination, today announced that QuantaDyn Corporation, an engineering firm specializing in training simulation, has awarded Christie the contract to provide the projection system for the First Article Unit of the Air National Guard’s Advanced Joint Terminal Attack Controller Training System (AAJTS) Development Program. The 10 new Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ 1-chip DLP® solid state, LED-based projectors will power Immersive Display Solution’s semi-portable simulator dome with a field of view of 240 by 90 degrees. Battlespace Simulations Inc., will supply Model Air Combat Environment (MACE) software used for scenario/entity generation, and MetaVR will provide its Virtual Reality Scene Generator™.

The Christie Matrix StIM WQ is an integrated scalable environment projection system with the capability to display independent RGB and IR channels through Christie’s InfraScene™ technology at WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolution.  It features 800 ANSI lumens, 4.1 megapixels of resolution, fully ruggedized chassis, Christie proprietary technology such as ArrayLOC™, which allows a seamless and uniform performance across a projection array, MotoBlend™ to maximize system contrast and optimize dark scenes, robust and easy to use AutoCal™ to maintain the alignment to precisely match and blend arrays, and the latest fully adjustable Christie AccuFrame™ smear-reduction technology for the most true-to-life image quality in the industry. Unlike alternative approaches to “smear reduction”, Christie AccuFrame is integrated into the Christie Matrix StIM WQ  and is fully adjustable in 1 percent increments over a 0-100 percent range. This allows system designers and customers to maximize dynamic image quality over a range of applications and/or training scenarios.

 Engineered for simulation and training needs, the Matrix StIM WQ’s unique dual input architecture is capable of providing a true 120Hz output at full WQXGA resolution that allows users to maximize image quality without compromising system brightness.  
 
Christie is at I/ITSEC in Orlando, Fla, December 3-6 to showcase several new simulation solutions including the Christie Matrix StIM WQ at booth #2549.
