New Christie TrueIMAGE™ Autocalibration System Revolutionizes Multiple Projection Set-Ups

Groundbreaking Technology Automatically Calibrates Arrayed Projection Displays

Cypress, CA - (May 16, 2006) - Christie, a leading provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, has launched the new Christie TrueIMAGE™ automatic calibration solution, a major industry breakthrough that calibrates arrayed projected displays.  Christie TrueIMAGE™ automatically adjusts image geometry, balances the colors, as well as brightness, gamma correction and edge blending to deliver an optimal viewing configuration within minutes.   It is ideal for Simulation and 3D/Virtual Reality applications, as well as entertainment and rental/staging.

The Christie TrueIMAGE™ is the only autocalibration solution available that effortlessly fine-tunes the images regardless of the size and shape of the display.  It represents a significant technological leap in the Simulation and Virtual Reality markets, where the technology offers substantial convenience and cost-savings by reducing the need for a dedicated technician to manually adjust and fine-tune sensitive equipment on an ongoing basis.  This allows for large-scale arrayed projection environments or displays with minimal additional resources or technical expertise, increasing productivity while reducing display system downtime.

“Christie TrueIMAGE™ is the new standard in display solutions, developed as a direct response to a critical need in the marketplace,” remarked Dave Fluegeman, vice president of Christie’s Visual Environments group. “By removing the technical barriers to having an arrayed projection display running optimally all of the time, Christie TrueIMAGE™ increases customer independence and dramatically expands the creative possibilities for any organization.”

A live demonstration of the Christie TrueIMAGE™ autocalibration solution is available at the Christie ITEC Booth #454. 

“Christie TrueIMAGE™ reflects our continuing commitment to help our customers find solutions that perfectly match their needs and exceed their expectations,” said Fluegeman.

Christie’s sophisticated projection systems are used at Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and DaimlerChrysler, and by oil companies such as Chevron and BP to help identify potential oil deposits.
