CYPRESS, CA – (September 11, 2009) – Christie® is pleased to unveil the Christie Roadie HD+35K, the world’s brightest projector. This new addition to the Christie Roadie family of projectors shines with 35,000 center lumens (32,500 ANSI lumens) and features Christie’s unique, flexible split-body design with separate lamp ballast.
The Christie Roadie HD+35K is the crown jewel in Christie’s expansive three-chip DLP® product line with native 2048x1080 HD resolution and 10-bit image processing. It delivers stunning images in their size, brilliance and quality. “There is no comparison in terms of resolution, brightness and performance,” says George Tsintzouras, director of product management, Christie.
True to its name, the Christie Roadie HD+35K is built for the road. It sets up quickly and easily and is tough enough to withstand frequent installs. New to this model is a motorized lens mount. “The Christie Roadie HD+35K features a new motorized lens mount, making it even more installation-friendly,” notes Tsintzouras. “This new addition enables users to focus and adjust the projected image position with a remote control from the floor; a very welcome improvement to our award-winning Christie Roadie projector line.”
In addition, a lens conversion kit is available, allowing users to motorize their existing Christie Roadie lenses so that they are compatible with the new Christie Roadie HD+35K. A factory service upgrade is also available to add the new motorization lens mount to the Christie Roadie HD+30K projector. These upgrade options enable owners to benefit from the motorized lens mount while protecting their investment in projectors and lenses.
The feature-rich Christie Roadie HD+35K offers many additional product benefits that Christie Roadie users have come to expect. These features include, but are not limited to the following:
User-replaceable lamps can be automatically aligned at the push of a button
User-friendly controls to ensure easy maintenance and servicing
Built-in body handles for handling and rigging
Optional Christie Twist™ to enable warping and blending of curved displays
Optional Christie AutoStack™ ; a software driven, camera-based system which works in conjunction with Christie Twist to stack and blend images through the software interface instead of relying on manual alignments
Christie also recently introduced a new three-year warranty on all its three-chip DLP products. “Customers will be pleased to learn that the Christie Roadie HD+35K is included in the three-year warranty program, adding even more value without additional cost,” says Tsintzouras. “We are confident that with its new features, the three-year warranty and Christie’s industry-leading service and support, the Christie Roadie HD+35K will offer end-users a rock solid performance.”
Global shipment of the Christie Roadie HD+35K is scheduled to begin in Fall 2009.
