New compact and quiet Christie Q Series models deliver more brightness for greater image clarity and performance

Christie DWU1052-Q and Christie DHD1052-Q added to dominant 1DLP and solid state illumination lineup

CYPRESS, Calif. - (January 19, 2016) - Christie® continues as the industry's 1DLP® leader with today's introduction of the Christie DWU1052-Q and Christie DHD1052-Q, both featuring improved warping and blending for more installation freedom, performance and imagery.

For applications including concerts, live theater, lecture halls, conventions, hotels, public spaces, and other venues where bright and precise imagery is key, end users will experience the benefits of the improved blending and warping and portrait or landscape modes whether the image is displayed on a flat or curved surface.

Operational in either single or dual-lamp mode, Christie Q Series is equipped with eClarity™ -image processing that delivers enhanced pictures by providing superior control over sharpness, gloss and shading, making images stand out more than ever. With built-in High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR), even image ‘washout' from high ambient light conditions can be eliminated.

The new Christie Q Series models also feature a built-in automated dual color wheel to quickly select between two performance color wheels to optimize for best color or brightest light.

"The simultaneous blending and warping, combined with the ability to project in either portrait or landscape mode, means the new Christie Q Series models provide greater installation freedom, whether it's a fixed installation or a rental staging application," said Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. "Built into the same small chassis as our existing and very successful Q Series, the 1052-Q models bring even more brightness in the same unbelievably small form factor. This allows it to fit into small spaces and go unnoticed while the focus of the audience remains on the stunning images, all at a low cost of ownership."

Christie DWU1052-Q and Christie DHD1052-Q have:
 10,000 lumens (WU), 9500 lumens (HD).
 Small form factor.
 Super Quiet - Reduced noise levels thanks to a unique cooling design that minimizes the number of fans.
