Part Number: 38-VIV210-XX


The Christie LW40 LCD digital projector provides a native 16:9 aspect ratio and an incredible 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness from a dual-lamp light engine for bright, high-resolution images. The native 16:9 WXGA panel provides 44% more pixels on the screen than an XGA resolution projector displaying 16:9 content. The latest 3D digital video processing produces sharp video images from analog and digital sources, 90% brightness uniformity and a 900:1 contrast ratio take your image presentation to the next level. The lens mount provides up to 12° horizontal image offset which provides a perfectly square image in standard cinema configurations with offset projection port locations. The LW40 provides excellent balance of performance and value for your largest cinema screens.
