Roadie S12 DLP™ Projector

Part Number: 38-DMD017-XX


Engineered for life on the road, Chrisite's Roadie S12 has set the benchmark for powerful, bright images for large audiences. The Roadie S12 utilizes a 1.9kW Ushio Xenon short-arc illumination system for 12000 ANSI lumens. Based on 3-chip DLP™ technology, the S12 delivers vivid SXGA images with picture-perfect color reproduction. With a built-in shutter, easy set-up with no convergence, rugged selfstacking chassis and motorized zoom, focus and horizontal/vertical lens offset, Christie's S12 can overcome the most rigorous projection demands.
