Christie Digital has announced the M 4K25 RGB pure laser projector, designed as the company’s ‘smallest, lightest, and quietest’ all-in-one RGB pure laser projector on the market.
First introduced in 2007, the original M Series was a game-changer for the ProAV industry. “The M Series packed a lot of features in a small package,” said Christie Executive Director for Technology and Custom Solutions, Larry Paul. “Features like the intelligent lens system and embedded Twist for blending and warping were unique at the time, plus its small size and weight, helped it to become Christie’s best-selling line of projectors and lenses.”
The new 25,000 lumen 4K UHD resolution M 4K25 RGB pure laser projector reinvents the series, with Christie engineering packing industry-leading features into a smal form factor weighing in at 92lbs. RGB pure laser technology reportedly delivers twice the colour of the original M Series for vibrant, bright images that approach Rec. 2020 colour volume, a colour standard closest to what the human eye can see.
With TruLife+ electronics all the needed connections are built-in, eliminating the need for optional input cards. TruLife+ also features electronic colour convergence (ECC), which allows users to correct colour convergence imperfections and individually adjust red, green, and blue via remote, so there’s no need to climb a ladder to make adjustments. Christie’s intelligent lens system (ILS1) makes swapping lenses easy for rental and staging, and offers motorised zoom, focus and offset via remote. Christie users can use their M, J and Crimson Series lenses, as well as the M Series rigging frame, with the M 4K25 RGB for added cost savings.
Christie’s proprietary precision pixel-shift technology, which reduces or eliminates typical artifacts found in other pixel-shifting technologies, provides UHD 4K resolution at up to 60Hz. With the optional Mirage upgrade, the M 4K25 RGB can support up to UHD 4K at a full 120 Hz for 2D and 3D stereoscopic applications, and the optional Mirage Pro upgrade can support frame rates up to 480Hz at UHD resolution.
“The new M 4K25 RGB doubles the brightness, doubles the colour volume capability, and quadruples the resolution over our legacy M Series projectors,” said Paul. “With an unprecedented 50,000 hours of illumination performance and a field replaceable light source, we’ve gone way beyond the legacy of the M Series as an industry workhorse in terms of long life and durability.”
Christie M 4K25-RGB ships November 2021.
