Proven 10-bit native HD processing
Utilizing 10-bit processing, the Christie Roadie HD+35K continues to exceed expectations in image quality and reproduction. High bandwidth supports additional functionality such as Picture-in-Picture and seamless switching between sources.
Managing the operation and maintenance of the Christie Roadie HD+35K is easy. DMDs that can be aligned in the field and an optical engine that can be cleaned, give you full control of the projector. Replacement lamp costs are low and we offer the best warranty on the market – three years parts and labor (including light engine).
The LiteLOC™ feature automatically manages your display's brightness levels over time so you can match the brightness of a multiple projector system in tiled or blended arrays. This feedback system continuously monitors lamp brightness; so as the lamp goes through its natural brightness decay, the system increases the lamp power in order to maintain consistent brightness.
High Performance Electronics
Key strengths of the Christie Roadie HD+35K include Christie-designed electronics with HD 4:4:4 capabilities and digital black level control that can be used with built-in edge blending. Additional features include seamless switching, Picture-in-Picture, LiteLOC™ and a motorized lens mount. The built-in RJ-45 networking port also enables monitoring and control through ChristieNET™ to provide complete asset management. The video processing, with artifact-free video and excellent color and contrast, produces unparalleled images.
Motorized lens mount lets you adjust focus and lens position using a remote control.
Portrait Display Capabilities
The Christie Roadie HD+35K has built-in portrait capabilities that are ideal for building and architectural displays, as well as for projection mapping applications. Additionally, Christie offers an upgrade kit that enables you to add the portrait display functionality to existing Christie Roadie HD+35K projectors – in the field.
Monitor and Manage
The Christie Roadie HD+35K supports Christie PowerTools™ – a free client-based software interface that enables you to easily monitor and manage most Christie LCD, 1-chip and 3-chip DLP projectors on your network. This single-user interface supports any number of Christie projectors on the network, regardless of their geographic location.
CDXL high performance short-arc Xenon lamps offer increased brightness in the same form factor as standard Xenon grade lamps.
Christie Twist enables seamless white and black level edge-blending of multiple curved images, faster and more easily than through traditional, manual methods.
