Christie Mirage WQ-L
1DLP WQXGA 800 Lumen 3D Projector
LED DLP reliability, resolution and 2D/3D flexibility
The world's only 120Hz, WQXGA projector with built-in Christie Twist™ and Christie ArrayLOC to provide long-life stability for your most demanding 3D visualizations.
The Christie Mirage WQ-L delivers visually stunning 3D for entertainment, museums and education, scientific research, manufacturing, oil and gas exploration and, stereo simulation training. With WQXGA resolution and high pixel density, this small-footprint projection system offers dual-input 3D mode for passive to active conversion, providing the highest performance 3D video content at 120Hz. It is also an exceptionally reliable system with continuous system calibration for a cost-effective 2D/3D-capable, flexible visualization solution.
When combined with collimation, the high fidelity stereoscopic visuals of the Christie Mirage WQ-L enable true-to-life, depth-specific training with infinite focus. Your eyes don’t have to change focus – objects and scenarios such as the following are represented as ‘real life’: flight refueling, helicopter pilot training, carrier landings, crane simulators, helicopter gun port trainers, and search and rescue.
LED illumination provides precise, life-like vibrant colors, no color wheel artifacts and reliable performance for years of virtually maintenance-free display. With optional lenses, embedded Christie Twist, any-orientation projector placement and industry-leading Christie warranties, service and support, the Christie Mirage WQ-L is the perfect blend of high-performance and ease-of-use for 3D users.

1-chip DLP LED Illumination
With Christie's single chip DLP LED illumination platform, we provide high resolution, pixel density and reliability, and continuous system calibration in a costeffective flexible platform that offers 2D/3D capability or, NVG stimulation. Utilizing solid-state LED illumination, provides precise, lifelike, vibrant colors and consistent performance over its lifecycle.
Advanced color matching from simple to complex arrays, regardless of the level of experience. Christie Advanced Color is a user-assisted tool that enables advanced color matching from simple to complex arrays, regardless of the level of experience. Using a precision light meter, computer and software with a simple user interface, the operator is automatically guided to point the meter at the screen and data is fed into the computer. The computer performs the calculations and places the color mapping information on the projectors – that information stays on the projector until you choose to re-tweak the system.
Christie ArrayLOC manages the brightness and color levels of all projectors within an array to a common level, in real-time with no additional latency. Synchronized color and brightness level balancing self-adjusts in as little as two seconds, reducing the amount of 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 expert image display adjustment capabilities at your fingertips, a stabilized, consistent display with reduced system maintenance and downtime will achieve increased productivity.
With the expertise of Christie AutoCal, arrayed projection displays are easily configured and maintained.
An easy-to-use option to manage arrayed projectors, Christie Twist allows pixels to be mapped to any projection surface with proper geometry and perfect pixel-to-pixel alignment. Christie Twist provides the enhanced warping and expert blending required for arrayed projectors to operate as a single, uniform display.
Christie Twist offers enhanced warping and blending for exact geometric mapping regardless of the shape or surface.
Christie's MotoBlend solution maximizes system contrast and optimizes dark scene applications. Developed around Christie's extensive experience with dynamic content utilized in today's advanced visualization displays, Christie's motorized optical blending helps maximize the best of both worlds when it comes to life-like images and DLP based displays and environments – system contrast and optimized dark scene applications.
Developed using our extensive experience with dynamic content, Christie MotoBlend provides motorized
optical blending that maximizes system contrast and optimizes dark scene applications.
Developed specifically to address the simulation market, Christie AccuFrame enables the customer to reduce perceptible image smearing due to image retention and eye motion. Fully adjustable to support various frame rates and environments, the unique advanced electronics in all Matrix Series projectors come standard with AccuFrame to accurately display high speed simulation content for the most true-to-life displays.
Active and Passive Stereoscopic Displays
3D content is supported in three different modes of 3D input: Dual Input 3D, full frame rate 3D input1 and frame doubled 3D for maximum source compatibility and high-performance, flicker-free operation without a passive to active converter.
- Mode 1: Dual input 3D – Two frame-locked inputs (one input for the left eye and the other for the right eye), that are combined (interleaved) in the projector @ 120Hz output
- Mode 2: Frame doubling – The projector will accept 60Hz progressive scan content (30Hz per eye) and will show each pair of frames twice
