The Roadster M Series S+14K-M SXGA+ 3DLP Projector from Christie is designed with stages in mind. Each of the Roadster models ships with more input cards than other M Series models, as well as a stacking frame. S+14K-M projector offers embedded warping, blending, and color matching. It features a dual lamp design, and when using both lamps provides 14,000 center lumens for maximum brightness. S+14K-M supports a maximum resolution of 1400 x 1050, and a dynamic contrast ratio of 2500:1.
Intelligent Lens System (ILS)
The ILS automatically recognizes and calibrates a lens when it is installed. Stepper motor-based encoding ensures that motor drift does not occur, as typically found with DC encoded motors, providing accurate and repeatable recall of all lens offset, zoom and focus positions. This lens system ensures that the images adjust to optimize screen coverage and maintain alignment in applications with moving screens or variable aspect ratios.
Multi Window/Screen Processing
External processors are not required for simple, small tiled, and blended arrays. This reduces TCO. Each M Series projector has the ability to send signals to multiple projectors (up to a 3x3 array) without any additional hardware or software. The projectors in the tiled array can then show only the portion of the signal that they need to project.
Embedded Christie Twist
Christie Twist enables seamless edge-blending of multiple curved images more quickly and easily than traditional, manual methods. Controlled by an intuitive GUI, users can control, edgeblend, or stack multiple curved images. Images can also be warped to fit virtually any dimension or shape display. Embedded Christie Twist ensures that all M Series projectors work with optional accessories such as Christie AutoStack and AutoStack Premium, camera-based software used to easily and accurately align content across a projection array in minutes.
Embedded Edge Blending and Color Matching
Advanced blending capabilities and Comprehensive Color Adjustment (CCA) ensure digitally accurate color matching and uniformity across multi-screen blended or tiled images.
The LiteLOC feature automatically manages your display's brightness levels over time so that you can match the brightness of a multiple projector system in tiled or blended arrays. This feedback system continuously monitors lamp brightness, so that as the lamp goes through its natural brightness decay, the system increases the lamp power in order to maintain consistent brightness.
Projector Control and Management
Users can access all projector menus and control through a web interface (via Ethernet) without disrupting the live presentation. This allows for real-time adjustments and monitoring of each projector on the network, regardless of geographic location.
Easily align Christie 3DLP content across multiple projectors in minutes with Christie AutoStack camera-based software. In conjunction with Christie Twist, images can be warped and blended seamlessly in a single flat screen display, supporting as many as twelve projectors, configured up to 2 high by 3 wide and then double-stacked as necessary for additional brightness or redundancy. Christie AutoStack Premium expands the capabilities of Christie AutoStack, working with more than twelve projectors in a single display on flat, curved/cylindrical, or portrait display screens.
Christie M Series projectors can operate filter-free because of dust-sealed engines and optics. Since dust and dirt cannot affect the system, and filters are not required, image quality is maintained and maintenance costs are lower. Removable side panels enable the addition of optional coarse dust and fog juice filters for projectors that are exposed to harsh environments.
Wireless Projection Control
Christie wireless projector control brings projection management to your fingertips with wireless projector control applications for Apple iOS and Android-based mobile digital devices. The Christie InControl app lets you control Christie projectors directly from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod, while the Christie Virtual Remote app offers the ability to manage Christie projectors using your Android-based mobile device. The two applications are designed to control any Christie M Series projector. Each projector can be controlled individually, or grouped together and controlled simultaneously. The Christie InControl app is available as a free download from the Apple App Store. The Christie Virtual Remote is available as a free download from the Google Play store.
