Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ

Part Number: 130-002103-XX

WQXGA 800 ANSI lumens LED illuminated simulation projector

The Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ takes solid state projection for the simulation and training industry to the next level. With high brightness, WQXGA resolution, real-time balancing of color and brightness levels, and advanced smear reduction technology, the Christie Matrix StIM WQ LED illuminated projector provides the most true-to-life image quality in the simulation industry.

Designed with Christie expertise, this simulation projection system has a fully ruggedized chassis for motion platform use. And, it’s designed with solid state illumination – there are no consumables for a virtually maintenance-free system.

Engineered specifically for simulation and training

Christie Matrix StIM WQ is a fully integrated projection system designed to address the requirements of today’s most demanding simulation and training applications. Simulation-specific features include:

  • Christie AutoCal™ – an easy-to-use system that allows users to automatically re-calibrate both geometry and blending with unequalled accuracy
  • Christie AccuFrame™ – smear reduction technology to accurately display high speed simulation content. On the Christie Matrix StIM WQ, AccuFrame is fully adjustable in 1% increments allowing system designers to maximize dynamic image quality over a range of frame rates and training scenarios for the most realistic displays. Christie AccuFrame​ Pro​​ is a first-of-its kind technology which prevents negative training by reducing motion blur at the pixel level while maintaining image brightness. AccuFrame Pro is compatible with the Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie SIM WQ projectors as an optional upgrade​.
  • Christie InfraScene™ for true-to-life NVG stimulation. The unique, dual input architecture of the Christie Matrix StIM WQ makes it the only WQXGA simulation projection system available today that displays separate channels for visible light and infrared spectrum. Using Christie InfraScene, it accurately depicts day and night scenes and independent stimulated NVG images, enabling realistic and relevant training for difficult conditions of limited visibility and night time operations.  It also offers new capability, allowing users to control and optimize the separate visible and IR scenes,  providing the flexibility to tailor and optimize the system to meet specific training requirements.

Another advantage of the Christie Matrix StIM WQ’s dual input architecture is the ability to composite the two 60Hz RGB inputs to deliver true 120Hz RGB operation. This results in dramatically improved image quality without image artifacts or perceived loss of brightness, all while maintaining compatibility with current Image Generator technology, and without the need to make changes to the visual database.
