InfoComm 2019 full of news from Christie, who presented the new Roadie 4K40-RGB and Mirage 4K40-RBG projectors.
The Roadie line of Christie projectors is well known especially for rental applications, thanks to the robustness, reliability and vividness of the images. The new 4K4-RGB laser version of the Roadie line was presented at InfoComm 2019. Similar to the Christie D4K50-RGB model, the Roadie projector needs no external chillers, remote laser racks or special pedestals because everything is incorporated into a compact all-in-one chassis. The specially reinforced frame and ease of assembly make this type of projector a product very suitable for “life on the road.” The compatibility with most of the Christie Boxer lenses, which increases the flexibility of the Roadie line, is also appreciable.
Like the larger model D4K40, Roadie 4K40-RGB requires only a 220V single-phase power supply and produces over 95% of the Rec. 2020 color space. The guaranteed operation touches 30.000 hours with 80% brightness, while the contrast ratio is of 5000: 1. The weight of 135 kilograms makes this projector one of the lightest in its class, lighter than most RGB laser models. Last but not least, the reduction of alignment times, guaranteed by the combination of Roadie 4K40-RGB with Christie Mystique (automated camera alignment software solution) and Christie Guardian, which provides an automatic invisible correction in real time of the images mixed even when the content is playing.
The other novelty of Christie’s InfoComm is the Mirage 4K40-RGB, for 3D projection. The Mirage series, therefore, is enriched with a new all-in-one pure laser projector that provides very detailed images, with built-in deformation and mixing, near-field communication monitoring and a preview screen at a glance.
Mirage, however, is already available on the market, while Roadie will be available from the end of June 2019.
