Christie’s New, Advanced Turnkey Visualization Solutions Offer Fast, Smooth Integration

Christie CAVE™ and Christie HoloStage Mini® introduced, underpinned by expanded 3D stereo projector line

I/ITSEC/ORLANDO, FL – (December 1, 2010) – Christie®, a leader in professional displays and 3D visualization solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of three new turnkey visualization solutions that maximize the latest Christie M Series projectors to achieve outstanding quality and enviable performance in compact, easy-to-integrate packages.
 
The turnkey solutions are a complement to Christie’s existing custom visualization solutions and round out the complete integrated offerings. The Christie CAVE™ is a compact, standard room-sized advanced visualization solution whose iterations combine Christie’s renowned 3-chip DLP® high-resolution stereoscopic projection with motion tracking, interaction capabilities and real-time 3D computer graphics in a complete turnkey solution.

“Our latest solutions are the easiest and fastest way to provide more accurate decision-making for our customers,” said Larry Paul, senior director, technology and visualization solutions management, Christie. “The Christie CAVE delivers a large field of view for enhanced discovery and high-efficiency, high-performance 3D visualization while providing stereo projection for advanced 3D performance. At the same time, it reduces overall operational and maintenance costs, resulting in an impressive reduction in the cost of ownership.”
 
World-Class Engineering Delivers High Performance

“Christie's years of system design and integration experience of spatially immersive displays, combined with our breadth of technologies and engineering strength, make best-in-class  preconfigured visualization solutions easily accessible to our customers,” said Zoran Veselic, vice president, Visual Environments, Christie. “With these turnkey solutions, customers receive the best quality and highest performance in a cost-effective package.”

The Christie HoloStage® Mini is a complete turnkey visualization solution that is specifically designed for a compact space with two screen surfaces, a wall and a laminate floor, and features 4.6 megapixels of immersive resolution. Economical, compact and easily deployed, the Christie HoloStage Mini enhances discovery and decision-making while keeping costs low and space requirements in check.  

 

 

Available as a standard four-sided 8 feet x 8 feet configuration with a 1:1 aspect ratio and 7.7 megapixels or a high-resolution four-sided system measuring 8 feet x 10 feet 6 inches configuration featuring a stunning 14.75 megapixels of immersive content, both Christie CAVEs offer a complete visualization display system. Lightweight for quick installation yet rigid for structural integrity, the design incorporates projection displays, screens, head tracking and interaction technology in one all-inclusive package.
 
The footprint for all of these systems fits into a compact facility. Capable of both active and passive stereo support, the result is visualization with impact - crisp, detailed images, excellent color with brightness uniformity and control capability.
 
The Christie Mirage M Series 3D stereo projection technology is now available in an expanded series of six models that offer a wide spectrum of choice, for the high-performance 3D displays required to meet advanced visualizations needs. Built on the award-winning Christie M Series platform, the projectors come in SXGA+, HD and WUXGA model variants and offer dual image processing power at full 120Hz active stereo, as well as built-in backwards compatibility to replace stacked passive 3D solutions.
