NAB/Las Vegas (April 24, 2006) - Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, introduces the Christie Roadster S+ 20K DLP® projector, the latest generation of its popular Roadster Series of compact, purpose-built projectors for the rental/staging, live entertainment, trade show and exhibition markets. Driven by a powerful 3-chip DLP SXGA+ engine and delivering 20,000 ANSI lumens, the projector offers superior image quality and increased brightness levels with greater power, performance and lower cost-of-ownership to meet the challenges of the most demanding environments.
The Christie Roadster S+ 20K features a contrast ratio of 1800:1, high quality optics and 10-bit image processing to provide crisp, clean images and perfect color saturation. Rugged and compact in design, with built-in handles and multiple rigging points, the projector is designed to meet the rigors and stress of the staging market, and is ideal for use in houses of worship, concerts, large auditoriums, trade shows and exhibitions, casinos, theme parks, and museums.
The projector’s high bandwidth signal processing supports additional functions such as Picture-in-Picture, HD 4:4:4 and seamless switching between sources. Motorized lens functions provide power focus, zoom, horizontal and vertical offset at the touch of a button, while the Intelligent Lens System (ILS™) provides auto recall for zoom and focus. User-replaceable pre-aligned Xenon lamp modules and bulbs with adjustable lamp power minimize downtime and cost-of-ownership.
“The Christie Roadster Series of purpose-built projectors represents the perfect convergence of size, functionality and power for the Rental/Staging market,” says Mike Garrido, senior product manager, Business Products, Christie. “The new Christie Roadster S+ 20K projector is the brightest projector in its category. It delivers proven 10-bit image processing, an unmatched level of power, performance and versatility, and it is reliable, easy to use – a clear cut above the competition.”
