Christie, with the launch of two new free software solutions (Christie Mystique Lite and Christie Conductor), simplifies the installation and management of images, as well as the monitoring and control of its projection systems
Multi-projector matrices, projection mapping and screens with complex surfaces require a certain complexity of configuration, alignment, deformation and fusion of images, all operations that can take hours of work.
Christie Mystique is a camera-based Christie projector solution capable of installing, aligning, calibrating and maintaining multi-projection systems. Like other versions of the Mystique family software, Christie Mystique Lite removes the costly job of aligning images in multi-projector matrices, and in addition it’s a free downloadable software, that works with an inexpensive third-party webcam, and allows you to merge and align up to three Christie projectors in a single horizontal array. The intuitive interface automatically detects the projectors and the webcam, allowing users to easily mark the corners of the screen to align, blend and deform an image. For more complex applications, there is a simple upgrade path to any of the other editions of Mystique.
Christie Conductor, on the other hand, is an advanced (but always free) monitoring and control software solution for up to 256 Christie 3DLP projectors. Conductor allows end users to proactively diagnose technical problems, perform repetitive processes with a single click, and maintain projectors optimally, reducing the risk of downtime and saving hours of manual labor.
Originally designed to monitor and control the 252 Christie D4K40-RGB projectors installed in the Al Wasl Plaza dome at Dubai Expo 2020, Conductor allows operators to simultaneously perform remote firmware updates of many projectors, view the health status of multiple projectors via a list or status map, as well as automatically turning projectors on and off, all from their desktop.
“Both software” – points out Brad Martin, Christie’s senior product manager – “are available for our new 3DLP projector, Griffyn 4K32-RGB, which is not only the smallest and quietest 32.000 lumen RGB laser projector on the market, but now it’s also the easiest to manage. Mystique Lite and Conductor software save time, simplify the operation and maintenance of complex projection systems, eliminating hours of manual work.”
