Christie Launches Matrix StIM WQ and Matrix SIM WQ Simulation Projection Systems

Features Higher Brightness, Higher Resolution and Increased Performance for Maximum Dynamic Image Quality and Most True-to-Life Training Experience

Christie® a leader in simulation projection display and visualization solutions, takes solid state projection technology "to the next level" with the launch of the new Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ, the world's first, fully integrated solid-state, WQXGA resolution projection systems designed specifically to address the requirements of today's most demanding simulation and training applications.


Built upon the unique, dual-input architecture first developed in the groundbreaking Christie Matrix StIM™ LED illuminated simulation projector - the first to provide independent control over both the visible and infrared spectrum - both the Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ provide the highest levels of light output available in an LED-based WQXGA projection system when used in a real-world training and simulation application.

The Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ feature 800 ANSI lumens, 4.1 megapixels of resolution, fully ruggedized chassis, ArrayLOC™ and the latest fully adjustable Christie AccuFrame™ smear-reduction technology for the most true-to-life image quality in the industry. Unlike alternative approaches to "smear reduction," Christie AccuFrame™ is integrated into the Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ and fully adjustable in 1 percent increments over a 0-100 percent range. This allows system designers and customers to maximize dynamic image quality over a range of applications and/or training scenarios.

Like all Christie Matrix series projection systems, the Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ are integrated, scalable environment projection systems purpose-built for simulation applications. Complete system solutions built on Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ along with Christie AutoCal™, directly translates to the highest levels of performance combined with extremely low sustainment cost and maximum life span.

"The introduction of the Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ represents a major leap in technological capabilities in simulation and training that strongly reaffirms Christie's commitment to the industry," said Zoran Veselic, vice president of Visual Environments, Christie. "Solid state projection technology is rapidly evolving, driven by customers' increasing expectations for higher resolution and higher brightness from LED-based projectors. The Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix SIM WQ further strengthen our innovation leadership in simulation and training."

Christie Matrix StIM WQ - "Star" of the Night Sky
The unique, dual input architecture of the Matrix StIM WQ makes it the only WQXGA simulation projection system available today that displays separate channels for visible light and Infra-Red (IR) spectrum for stimulated Night Vision Goggles (NVG) training through Christie InfraScene™. With the ability to separate RGB and IR channel management, the Matrix StIM WQ offers greater system design flexibility, enabling the user to tailor and optimize the system to meet the specific night training requirement. Another advantage of the Matrix StIM WQ's dual input architecture is the ability to composite the two 60Hz RGB inputs to deliver true 120Hz RGB operation. When used with Christie AccuFrame™ smear reduction technology, the result is dramatically improved image quality without image artifacts or perceived loss of brightness while maintaining compatibility with current Image Generator technology, and without the need to make changes to the visual database.

Designed for 24/7 operation and with a platform rated at 50,000 hours Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), the Christie Matrix StIM WQ's rugged design for motion platform use is a durable projection system with no consumables and virtually maintenance-free.

Christie Matrix SIM WQ - A "High Flyer" in Commercial Flight Simulation
The Christie Matrix SIM WQ goes beyond FAA Level D compliance for projectors in Full Flight Simulators with its higher resolution and color matching technology. Solid state, LED-based illumination means reliable, 24/7 operation, with lower power consumption and an extremely low sustainment cost that translates to a low total cost of ownership. Its inherently stable long-life platform doesn't fade over time due to its unique, lamp-less illumination systems that offer unprecedented stability and reliability, with no consumables for reliable, continuous operation.

"The Christie Matrix StIM WQ and Matrix SIM WQ will dramatically expand training options for a wide range of simulation programs," said Veselic. "They are compatible with all simulation motion environments, can be mounted in either landscape or portrait mode and, with Christie AutoCal™, they provide real-time continuous calibration to ensure consistent luminance and color across the entire projection array, and minimum time for system set-up and re-calibration. They are at the true 'front line' of simulation technology, offering performance, value and versatility to meet the most demanding needs of the industry."

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
