Christie Unleashes the Christie D4K40-RGB Projector

Large venues, sports facilities, domes, giant screens, planetariums and theme park attractions are among the many facilities that will benefit from the new Christie D4K40-RGB 3DLP projector.

Designed with Christie TruLife electronics and Christie RealLaser illumination, the Christie D4K40-RGB produces greater than 90%  of the Rec. 2020 colour space for rich, vibrant true-to-life visuals -all built into a projector weighing less than half of its closest competitor.

“Thanks to Christie’s engineering expertise, we created the smallest and lightest high-brightness, omnidirectional, all-in-one RGB laser projector on the market without compromising image quality or durability,” said Mike Garrido, Senior Product Manager, Christie.

“There are no heavy external chillers, remote laser racks, or special pedestals; everything is incorporated into a single, all-in-one solution. This is a pure laser, pure performance and pure excellence all rolled into one projector that our customers are going to love. Our customers will also love that the D4K40-RGB is compatible with most Christie Boxer lenses, resulting in further cost savings.”

Delivering over 30,000 hours of operation to 80% brightness, 5000:1 contrast ratio, and up to 120 frames per second, the Christie D4K40-RGB also features a new, patented, sealed optical path. For typical installations, this translates into 8-plus years of stable, uncompromised, virtually maintenance-free operation. Powerful yet energy efficient, the Christie D4K40-RGB operates on single-phase 220V power, making it significantly more cost-effective than competitor models.

Featuring the latest advancements in laser technology, RealLaser achieves breakthroughs in brightness, colour reproduction, image uniformity, ultra-high contrast ratios, and operational lifetime. Christie TruLife supports a video-processing pipeline of up to 1.2 Gigapixels per second, enabling 4K DLP at 120Hz performance. With its 12G-SDI, DisplayPort, Christie Terra SDVoE input card, Christie Link and more, connecting numerous sources is stress-free.

The Christie D4K40-RGB ships in December 2018 with a 3-year part and labour warranty.
