CYPRESS, CA – (July 22, 2009) – Christie®, well-known for industry-leading warranties, is raising the service and support bar once again by increasing its global warranty program to a full three years for Christie’s proven 3-chip DLP® projectors. Available globally and at no extra cost, this three-year warranty applies to select Christie 3-chip DLP business projectors sold through the Christie Business Products channels.
As a testament to the quality, reliability and performance of its high performance 3-chip DLP projectors, Christie is proud to extend its warranty program to the widest selection of 3-chip DLP projectors available on the AV market today. These Christie projectors range from 2,300 ANSI lumens to 30,000 ANSI lumens and are equipped with either xenon or mercury illumination, fulfilling the business requirements for applications of any size and budget.
Clients also benefit from selecting Christie projectors that have claimed prestigious titles in the AV industry. These award-winning projectors include the Christie Roadie HD+30K and the Christie Roadster HD18K. Both received top honors from New Bay Media’s Rental & Staging Systems magazine and InfoComm International® in 2007, claiming the titles of “Best Video Projection Product/High Lumen” and “Best HD Production Product”, respectively.
The recently awarded and internationally recognized Christie M Series projector is also included in the three-year warranty program.
