Christie Holostation Combines High Performance with High Resolution for Maximum Visualization

Compact and Self-Contained 3D Stereoscopic System Delivers Lifelike Images in Variety of Applications

Christie®, a global leader in visual display solutions, announced at SIGGRAPH the launch of its Christie HoloStation™, a fully self-contained, personal visualization system that provides ultra high performance 3D and high resolution display for an immersive experience in small spaces and for "on-the-go."


"With its low maintenance and low cost of ownership, the HoloStation system is one of the most affordable immersive display solutions on the market. Its portability and compact footprint contains all the components required to operate a personal immersive visual display for scientific research or oil and gas exploration, among many other applications," said Larry Paul, senior director of Technology and Visualization Solutions, Christie.

The Christie HoloStation comes complete with projection displays, screens, tracking and interactive technology and displays up to 16.8 Megapixels of data in a 3D stereoscopic and interactive, tracked environment. It provides the functionalities of a full-size Christie CAVE™, but in a scaled down (85-inch by 108-inch by 101-inch footprint), completely self-contained personal immersive environment that fits into a standard office or cubicle. With interactive 3D content and graphic cards as options, it features external graphics processing designed for large-scale 3D visualization and full Dual Link DVI-D bandwidth. Easy to deploy and use, the Christie HoloStation can be set up in almost any facility, and with its head-tracking sensors and interactive tools, it is ideal for applications including aircraft design development, architectural walk-throughs and product design reviews, maintenance and service training, medical training and as a 3D virtual trainer.

The HoloStation system showcased at SIGGRAPH 2013, July 23-25, is powered by four Christie Mirage WU-L WUXGA DLP® 3D projectors that deliver high resolution and rich pixel density, as well as continuous system calibration, in a small footprint unit capable of advanced 2D-3D visualizations. The Mirage WU-L with RGB LED is the first Mirage Series projector to use solid-state LED illumination, providing precise, lifelike, vibrant colors and consistent performance over an estimated 60,000-hours (approximately 6.5 years) life cycle. The compact, four-sided Christie HoloStation system allows visitors at the booth to become fully immersed and interact using the controls. The tracking system enables the 3D models to change their perspective at the slightest turn of the user's body, making the virtual reality as close to real life as possible.

Christie's commitment to bringing cost-effective solutions for small spaces makes this workstation affordable for companies whose daily tasks involve research, exploration and training, whether on the manufacturing floor or in a cubicle.

The HoloStation is available now.
