Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Christie Mirage 4K?

The Christie Mirage 4K platform is the world’s first and only 4K DLP projector that can display 2D or 3D , full-frame 4K content at 120Hz.

What type of 3D content does the Mirage 4K support?

The Mirage 4K will support 4K 3D content in three different modes:

  1. 120Hz 4K in/out
  2. Dual input 3D uses two 60Hz frame-locked (quad) inputs (one input for left eye and the other for right eye). The projector will combine (interleave) each 60Hz progressive channel into a 120Hz progressive scan image (60Hz per eye)
  3. Frame doubling – the projector will accept 60Hz progressive scan content (30Hz per eye) and the projector will show each pair of frames twice. The image refresh rate and 3D glasses operate at 120Hz for a flicker-free experienc

What physical input connectors are included with the Mirage 4K?

The Mirage 4K comes with four input card slots and all four slots are populated from the factory. The standard configuration is with four Twin DisplayPort input cards. Each card can accept two DisplayPort 1.1a signals. In addition to the dual input connectors, there are dual loop output connectors for loop-through. These quad DisplayPort cards will support any of the three modes of 3D content described above.

What physical input connectors are included with the Mirage 4K?

The Mirage 4K comes with four input card slots and all four slots are populated from the factory. The standard configuration is with four Twin DisplayPort input cards. Each card can accept two DisplayPort 1.1a signals. In addition to the dual input connectors, there are dual loop output connectors for loop-through. These quad DisplayPort cards will support any of the three modes of 3D content described above.

Does the Mirage 4K require frame-locked signals?

Yes. The source system must be frame-locked before the signal is sent to the projector. The Mirage 4K uses multiple signals (either four or eight channels) from sources that are delivered to the projector at the same exact time. This synchronization is called "frame lock." This frame lock is accomplished in the computer system or playback server system, via internal or external methods, depending on the source type. Please refer to the source supplier to understand how to configure the source properly to ensure proper frame lock in the source playback system.

What optional cards are compatible with the Mirage 4K?

Optionally, one can remove the four Twin DisplayPort input cards and replace two or four of them with Twin HDMI™ input cards, Dual Link DVI-D input cards or 3G HD-SDI input cards. Please note: if only two cards of any one type are installed, only method 3 (frame doubling) 60Hz (30Hz per eye) content is compatible. Four cards of the same type are required for supporting methods one or two.

What is DisplayPort?

DisplayPort is the most advanced, flexible and capable digital interface signal standard established by Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). The standard size DisplayPort connector features a locking connector and has been designed to ultimately replace the older VGA, DVI and FPD-Link formats. DisplayPort is sometimes referred to as “DP.”

The Mirage 4K comes standard with four DisplayPort 1.1a input cards. Each of the four twin DisplayPort cards also features a pair of output connectors. These outputs can be used to mirror the display content on an external display. Please note: Because the Mirage 4K uses quadrants, only one portion of the content will appear per segment. The Mirage 4K can use either four or eight channels for true 120Hz operation. It can also accept four channels of 60Hz for use at 30Hz per eye.

The 120Hz (60Hz per eye) version with either four or eight channel connection approach for DisplayPort 1.1a will be capable of 120Hz at 4:4:4 eight or ten bit and 4:2:2 at eight, ten or 12 bit color depth.

The frame doubled approach of 120Hz output from 60Hz (30Hz per eye 3D) will support 4:4:4 at eight or ten bit color. Only two cards are required if frame doubling is required. Mini DisplayPort can be adapted to a full-size DisplayPort with an appropriate adaptor.

What is HDMI?

HDMI is an acronym for High Definition Multimedia interface. The Mirage 4K can accept optional HDMI input cards. Four cards with eight frame-locked channels are needed if true 120Hz (60Hz per eye) is desired via HDMI. Only two cards are needed if the frame doubled approach is used. The color depth is 4:4:4 eight or ten bit and 4:2:2 if eight bit is used.

Each of the four twin DisplayPort cards also features a pair of output connectors. These outputs can be used to mirror the display content on an external display. Please note: Because the Mirage 4K uses quadrants, only one portion of the content will appear per segment.

What is DVI?

DVI is an acronym for Digital Video Interface and was the first widely adopted digital signal standard developed in 1999. The Mirage 4K can accept optional DVI-D Dual Link input cards. Four cards must be used if true 120Hz is to be achieved. Eight bit color is supported over DVI-D.

There is no output on the Dual Link DVI-D card. The Dual Link DVI-D card used in the Mirage 4K also has an HDMI™ receiver although the connector is physically a DVI-D type. There is also an analog VGA connector on this card, but it is not compatible with the Mirage 4K.

There are several variations of a DVI connector including Single and Dual Link DVI-D, DVI-A, DVI-I. Only DVI-D signals are compatible with the Mirage 4K and Dual Link format must be used if true 120Hz performance is to be achieved with the DVI-D interface.

If there are two inputs on the DisplayPort card, why do I need four cards to support 3D stereo content?

While there are two inputs per card, the bandwidth on only two cards exceeds the bandwidth required to drive the projector at 120Hz in/out. You must have four cards to drive the Mirage 4K with method 1 or 2.

How do I connect my source for method 1 (true 120Hz in/out performance)?

    The Mirage 4K can support method 1 via four frame-locked 120Hz signals from either four DisplayPort cards or four DVI Dual Link DVI-D cables. Each channel is to be configured to output 2048 x 1080 @ 119.88Hz or 2048 x 1080 @ 120Hz. Each channel must be frame-locked at the source.

How do I connect my source for method 2 (dual quads of 60Hz left-right content combined for true 120Hz performance)?

The Mirage 4K can support method 2 via eight frame-locked 59.94Hz signals or 60Hz. Each channel must be frame-locked at the source. Each group of four channels is a mono signal of either left-eye or right-eye content. The projector combines (interleaves) them to make a full 120Hz 4K image.

Can you connect a Christie Spyder X20 to a Mirage 4K with full 120Hz 3D support?

The Christie Spyder X20 with the Spyder stereoscopic option (SSO) option is compatible to drive the Mirage 4K if the optional four Dual Link DVI-D input cards are installed.

Can I upgrade to a Mirage 4K from a 60Hz D4K projector?

Yes. For an additional fee, there will be a method to upgrade a 60Hz D4K projector to Mirage 4K specifications.

Can I upgrade to a Mirage 4K from a 24/30Hz D4K projector?

No. There is no upgrade path from a 24/30Hz D4K projector to Mirage 4K specifications.

What resolutions are compatible with the Mirage 4K?

The Mirage 4K is compatible with signals that combine to be either “4K” (4096 x 2160) or Quad HD (3840 x 2160). At this time, no other resolutions are compatible. Throughout this document, if there is a reference to 4K, it is compatible with Quad HD. If resolutions of 2K (2048 x 1080) are discussed, it is also compatible with HD (1920 x 1080).

Does the Mirage 4K support the Christie Twist?

The hardware to fully support Christie Twist functionality (warping, blending, scaling etc.) is included with the product. However, the firmware to enable the functionality will not be available until the end of 2013. This firmware will be a free update as soon as it is available.

Is the Mirage 4K HDCP-compliant?

Yes. The Mirage 4K is HDCP-compliant.

Will the Mirage 4K support Blu-ray or 3D Blu-ray DVD content?

Not at this time. There will be support for Blu-ray DVD content after the firmware that supports Christie Twist is available. There is no support for 3D, Blu-ray DVD content.

Will the Mirage 4K support single-channel sources, including 3D, Blu-ray DVD content?

At this point, 3D Blu-ray DVD content is not compatible. However, after Christie Twist is available and scaling is enabled, compatible single-channel sources, including Blu-ray DVD, will be supported.

Does the Mirage 4K support analog signals?

There is no current direct support for analog signals.

Will the Mirage 4K support 24-60Hz mono content?

Yes. The Mirage 4K will support the same connections that the Christie D4K 60Hz platform does. However, there will be limitations on supporting 3D content that can be shown via method 1 or 2 unless the projector has four identical input cards.

Does the Mirage 4K support DCI specifications?

No. There is no support for encrypted DCI content.

What 3D sources are compatible with mode 1 or 2?

The Mirage 4K is compatible with any sources that can frame-lock four or eight channels of compatible signals. This can be clusters of computers with frame-locking ability, a single computer that has four or eight identical outputs with frame-locking ability or clusters of frame-locked video servers that can support either four or eight properly formatted video signals. If four channels are used, a 3D sync signal must be generated from the source.

What 3D sources are compatible with mode 3?

The Mirage 4K is compatible with any sources that can frame-lock two to four channels of compatible signals. This can be clusters of computers with frame-locking ability, a single computer that has two to four identical outputs with frame-locking ability or clusters of frame-locked video servers that can support either two to four properly formatted video signals. If method 3 is used, a 3D sync signal must be generated from the source.
