Christie Matrix SIM WQ
800 ANSI Lumen 1DLP WQXGA LED Illuminated Simulation Projector
World's Brightest, WQXGA Simulation Projection System
The Christie Matrix SIM WQ is a fully integrated projection system engineered for commercial flight simulation requirements and goes beyond FAA Level D compliance for projectors in Full Flight Simulators.
Built on the same stable, long-life RGB-LED illumination platform as the Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ, the Christie Matrix SIM WQ offers a virtually maintenance-free option for commercial aviation as well as military training applications where NVG stimulation is not required.
The Christie Matrix SIM WQ takes solid state projection for the civil aviation sector to the next level. With higher brightness, WQXGA resolution, real-time balancing of color and brightness levels, and advanced, user-adjustable smear reduction technology, the Christie Matrix SIM WQ LED illuminated projector exceeds FAA standards, providing the most true-to-life image quality in the simulation industry.
Designed with Christie expertise, this simulation projection system has a fully ruggedized chassis for motion platform use. With no consumables the Matrix SIM WQ is a virtually maintenance-free system which boasts extremely low sustainment costs for a low total cost of ownership.
And, it’s designed with the same solid state illumination platform as the original Christie Matrix SIM which has been successfully integrated and proven on commercial simulators with FAA qualification approval for complete unrestricted training.
Engineered specifically for simulation and training
Christie Matrix SIM WQ is a fully integrated projection system designed to exceed Level D compliance for projectors in Full Flight Simulators. Simulation-specific features include:
- Christie AutoCal – an easy-to-use system that allows users to automatically re-calibrate both geometry and blending with unequalled accuracy
- Christie ArrayLOC – for real-time balancing of color and brightness levels
- Christie AccuFrame – smear reduction technology to accurately display high speed simulation content. On the Christie Matrix SIM WQ, AccuFrame is fully adjustable in 1% increments allowing system designers to maximize dynamic image quality over a range of frame rates and training scenarios for the most realistic displays.
Christie Matrix SIM WQ offers you peace of mind
Built on an inherently stable long-life platform that doesn’t fade over time, Christie Matrix SIM WQ is a lamp-less illumination system that offers unprecedented stability and reliability at an extremely low sustainment cost that translates to a low total cost of ownership.
Designed for 24/7 operation, the Christie Matrix SIM WQ provides years of continuous operation with no consumables and is virtually maintenance-free.
- Visual display solution meets FAA Level D simulator standards
- Integrated, extraordinarily fast LED illumination with a lifetime greater than 50,000 hours to 50% output
- No consumables – no lamps for longer life, longer reliability and lower cost of ownership than traditional lamped projectors
- Solid state technology with single DMD™ – provides unmatched picture reliability, filter-free design and no color wheel for high reliability
- Unlimited mounting options – removes restrictions of a lamp for any orientation mounting
- Ruggedized motion platform kit – to withstand 5g shock load
- Increased color gamut – for more dynamic and realistic rendering of the training environment
Developed using our extensive experience with dynamic content, Christie MotoBlend provides motorized optical blending to ensure seamless blends, optimized for night training applications.
Christie AccuFrame enables you to reduce perceptible image smearing due to image retention and eye motion. Fully adjustable to support various frame rates and training environments, all Matrix Series projectors come standard with Christie AccuFrame to accurately display dynamic simulation content for the most true-to-life imagery.
Christie ArrayLOC manages the brightness and color levels of all Matrix solid-state projectors within an array to a common level, in real-time and with no additional latency. Synchronized color and brightness level balancing self-adjusts, reducing the time, labor and costs associated with maintaining a simulation display.
Christie AutoCal calibrates any arrayed projection display, from flat to cylindrical to spherical, and adjusts it to its optimized viewing configuration. With automated image display adjustment capabilities at your fingertips, a stabilized, consistent display with reduced system maintenance and downtime will help you increase productivity.
An easy-to-use option to manage arrayed projectors, Christie Twist allows pixels to be mapped to any projection surface with proper geometry and accurate pixel-to-pixel alignment. Christie Twist provides the high-quality warping and blending required for arrayed projectors to operate as a single, uniform display with maximum image quality and minimum system latency.
Christie Twist offers high-quality warping and blending for exact geometric mapping regardless of the shape or surface.
Minimum Processing Latency
With Minimum Processing Latency (MPL), there is less than a single frame of latency between projector input and display. The result is the realistic, realtime performance needed to simulate highly-dynamic environments.
Maximizing Image Quality for Real-World Simulation Content
The Matrix StIM, Matrix StIM WQ and Matrix J Series projectors use their unique, dual-input architecture to provide the ability to composite the two 60Hz RGB inputs to deliver true 120Hz RGB operation. This results in dramatically improved dynamic image quality and resolution without image artifacts or perceived loss of brightness, while maintaining compatibility with current Image Generator technology and without having to change the visual database.
Designed for Simulation Motion Environments
All Christie Matrix Series projection systems are built to order and can be supplied with a fully ruggedized chassis to withstand the shock loads associated with motion platform use for extreme system stability.
