  • Available build to order

Build to order, the Christie Matrix WU5 utilizes a Color Purity Filter (CPF™) to enable superior color saturation, and color matching with superior black levels for unsurpassed day and night scene blending. Our SuperCR™ technology provides a contrast ratio of up to 2000:1 allowing for low black levels and incredibly accurate night scene images.

Combined with the highest color uniformity and standard features such as Christie Twist™ image warping and edge-blending, RGB color matching, full control of gamma curves and grayscale tracking, high input bandwidth and less than one frame of propagation delay, the Christie Matrix Series WUXGA models are suited to many applications and are also an ideal CRT replacement solution.
