New HD 3D Projectors From Christie up Resolution by 41 Percent

Christie, again taking a leadership role in yet another vertical market, announced the Christie Mirage HD Series, the first native 1920 x 1080 HD, 3-chip DLP projectors with active stereo. Christie says the series has 41 percent more resolution than previous 3D projection technology.

The company says its new platform allows images to be powered at 120Hz from a regular workstation computer – full, true HD stereo images can be powered by basically any computer graphic card.

There are four models in the series. The Mirage HD3 is specified at 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Mirage HD6 at 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Mirage HD8 at 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the Mirage HD18 with up to 17,500 ANSI lumens. They can be used as single projector systems, or scale up to high-end multi-projector arrays.

Accessories include ChristieTWIST image warping and edge-blending module, input modules for dual SD/HD-SDI, DVI and legacy interface modules, and HD lenses.
