Christie® is bringing its visual display solutions to life at the Worship Facilities Conference and Expo (WFX) 2014, which takes place October 1-2 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.

The Christie Spyder X20 video processor will manage all content.


A Christie display solution for every need
Making its WFX debut is the Christie DHD555-GS. Part of the 1-chip DLP® Christie GS Series, the DHD555-GS eliminates the need for lamp and filter replacements, providing 20,000 hours of low-cost operation. It features wireless connectivity and a suite of optional lenses for greater installation flexibility. Christie GS Series provides clean, radiant images with up to 5400 ANSI lumens with Picture-in-Picture functionality, making it ideal for houses of worship. Easy to install, the Christie DHD555-GS includes display port, HDMI, DVI and HDBaseT connectivity.

The booth also features the Christie DHD951-Q. Part of the Christie Q Series, the 1-chip DLP® projector is usable in either single or dual-lamp mode, and equipped with eClarity™ - advanced image processing that enhances images by providing greater control over image sharpness, gloss and shading. Moreover, with Q Series' built-in High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR), image 'washout' in high ambient light conditions is eliminated.

Two blended Christie HD14K-M 3-chip DLP® projectors will display content on a wide aspect ratio curved screen using the Christie Spyder X20. Combining unparalleled image quality and low cost of ownership, Christie M Series provides incomparable results in houses of worship. Available with WXGA, SX+, HD and WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution and providing up to 10,000:1 contrast ratio, the industry-leading Christie M Series is equipped with Christie Twist™, which enables edge blending and warping for smooth, clean images from multiple projectors.

The LED edge-lit Christie FHD651-T will be showcased at WFX. Featuring a 2.7-inch deep profile, the elegantly designed LCD flat panel has the reliability and image quality needed for houses of worship where it will complement any d©cor. Delivering, bright, brilliant images, the congregation's message will be visible every seat without interruption.

Featuring up to four simultaneous touches, the Christie FHD651-T has high-accuracy infrared touch technology with superior touchscreen performance in a fully integrated package.

The Christie booth will also display the multiple award-winning Christie MicroTiles in a 1 by 5 array. Christie MicroTiles deliver clean, saturated, precise colors on a nearly seamless digital canvas. Their unique modular design allows them to be configured into any shape or size, creating the perfect blend of architecture and technology.
