With no moving parts and no lamps to change, sustainment costs for a Christie Matrix StIM simulation system are extremely low. No lamps means no replacements, no system set-up and balancing and a conservation of resources, a technician’s time and other costs required for proper disposal and maintenance of a lamp-based simulator. With full RoHS compliance and years of continuous operation, the Christie Matrix StIM is a virtually maintenance-free, environmentally-friendly arrayed simulation display system.
If a simulation trainer goes down, the amount of time lost can directly translate into fewer training hours, lower quality training and higher maintenance costs – and lost revenue. Based on a 3-channel display running 8 hours per day, 5 days a week and operating for a duration of 11 years, only the Christie Matrix StIM provides a virtually maintenance-free lifetime on the display. With 50,000 hrs MTBF on the illumination package, no moving parts, no lamps or filters to change – the Christie Matrix StIM is virtually maintenance-free. High MTBF and ease of support provide a near order-of-magnitude savings in sustainment cost.
Supportability – minimized maintenance costs
The Christie Matrix StIM is the first digital simulation projector that utilizes solid state illumination. Designed with extraordinarily long life, stability, reliability and continuous brightness and color matching, the Christie Matrix StIM incorporates many technological benefits never before available for an overall reduced sustainment cost.
Built on an inherently stable long-life platform that doesn’t use polarization filters or fade over time, Christie’s unique lamp-less illumination system offers unprecedented stability and reliability. With no consumables, the Christie Matrix StIM provides years of continuous operation.
The comparatively low Mean-Time-Between Failures (MTBFs) of previous projection systems effectively put a ceiling on projection array scalability for simulation. The technology and systems engineering incorporated into the Christie Matrix StIM also enables unprecedented levels of maintenance-free operation. With Christie Matrix StIM, we haven’t just “raised the bar” on scalability, we’ve revolutionized it!
