The range of Christie’s RGB laser projectors is expanding with the arrival of the new 50.000 lumen Mirage 4K model
The new Christie proposal for pure laser projectors achieves a brightness of 50.000 lumens, which maintains the same small and flexible form factor as the original 35.000 lumen Mirage SST. However, the sharp increase in brightness of the new model opens up further applications and creative possibilities.
Featuring an ultra-compact, fiber-coupled projection head weighing just under 51 kilograms and a remote light source that can be positioned up to 50 meters away from the head, the new Mirage SST is specifically designed for demanding applications that require a high brightness projector with high image fidelity, even in confined spaces and exposed to the elements.
Among the main features of the new Mirage SST model, it is worth noting TruLife, a proprietary electronic platform that allows, with an optional license, a frame rate of 120 fps in 4K resolution and up to 480 fps in 2K resolution. 2020 color space, true 4K resolution and the sharpness of RGB laser projection deliver immersive and realistic images. The wide available range of lenses (ten high-brightness 4K lenses) also increase the flexibility of installation of this projector: the range goes from an ultra-short throw with a 0: 38:1 ratio to a 7:69: 1 ratio, going through eight intermediate steps that deliver improved contrast performance from 2000: 1 to 5000: 1.
Finally, the new Mirage SST is compatible with Christie Mystique, the automated camera-based alignment solution that eliminates many difficulties in building even very complex multi-projector installations.
A final comment is given to Larry Paul, Christie’s Executive Director of Technology and Custom Solutions. “The new Mirage SST” – he said – “is a concentrate of power in a very small form factor. With the cooling system and light source installed away from the projection head, and with the ultra-low output of 2501 BTU, it provides users with a flexible and quiet solution for theme parks, mapping shows, domes and planetariums.”
