Roadie X10 3-chip DLP™ Projector

Part Number: 38-DMD017-XX


Engineered for life on the road, Chrisite's Roadie X10 has set the benchmark for powerful, bright images for large audiences. The Roadie X10 utilizes a 1.9kW Ushio Xenon short-arc illumination system for 10000 ANSI lumens. Based on 3-chip DLP™ technology, the X10 delivers vivid XGA 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 X10 can overcome the most rigorous projection demands.
