TOKYO– (June 25, 2014) – Christie® is previewing the latest addition of its Mirage 4K platform, the Christie Mirage 4KLH. This new model builds on all the benefits of the Mirage platform, but adds Christie Solid State Laser illumination technology, driving a new range of brightness and flexibility. The Mirage 4K platform is ideal for 3D applications for advanced visualization in automotive, location-based entertainment, government, military, oil and gas and more.
Christie laser projectors provide industry-leading brightness, wider color gamut capabilities, higher contrast, and dramatically reduced maintenance requirements, resulting in a better experience for all 2D and 3D applications.
The Mirage 4KLH supports both full 120Hz active stereo and passive stereo with optional external filters and polarized passive glasses with 3P illumination. The Mirage 4KLH system is also configurable with Christie's latest 6P illumination source, providing support for an unprecedented 120Hz per eye when used in a 6P passive configuration.
Like the existing lamp based Mirage 4K projectors, the Mirage 4KLH is anchored by the unique Christie TruLife™ electronics platform with proprietary 1.2 Gigapixel per second, floating point architecture, offering full 4096 by 2160 resolution at 120Hz for 3D and integrated Christie Twist for warping and blending. The preview of the Mirage 4KLH takes place in the Christie 3D showroom located adjacent to the IVR conference at the Tokyo Big Sight, Japan's largest exhibition technology and high definition image technology, June 25-27.
"Christie, as the global leader in the visualization market has the first and only projector in the world to provide full 4K DLP® resolution at a true 120Hz. With this new Mirage 4KLH, Christie has raised the benchmark even higher with high performance visualization solutions currently available on the market," said Larry Paul, senior director of Technology and Visualization Solutions, Christie.
Mamoru Hanzawa, director of Christie Digital Systems, Japan, added, "Christie designs the most functionally-advanced and intuitive 3D projection for visualization display solutions. Enhancing the Mirage 4K with laser illumination will expand the capabilities for new applications. Christie once again is demonstrating its leadership position and dedication to customers with solutions and services that our customers have come to expect. Our mission at Christie is to help our customers create the world's best shared experiences."
By introducing the world's first stereoscopic 3-chip DLP® projector in 2001, Christie set new standards for 3D performance and changed the way people looked at stereoscopic images. For 12 years Christie has led numerous Mirage innovations to facilitate the use of 3D visualization for multiple applications, including visualization of advanced computer-generated models, and presentation of engaging content at location-based entertainment venues, opening the doors to enhanced human perception and understanding.
