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.
This easy-to-use LCD keypad includes:
- Contextual menus providing a fully-featured, intuitive interface; removing the need for a cluttered keypad
- Large, four line LCD display
- Adjustable brightness and timed LCD off mode
- Intuitive keypad design that lights up when features are active – making it user friendly
- Active keys that are color-coded amber to indicate that selections will result in changes visible to the audience
Expanded Lens Suite
With the addition of a short zoom (1.25-1.6:1 SX+/1.16-1.49:1 HD) and a long zoom (7.5-11.2:1 SX+/6.9-10.4:1 HD), this expanded suite provides the broadest range of HD lenses in this marketplace.
Motorized Yellow Notch Filter
The motorized yellow notch filter optically expands the color gamut for richer greens and yellows. Since you lose some brightness by improving the greens and yellows, this is a channelconfigurable option which enables you to decide when it is needed. This filter, available on M Series HD and WUXGA models only, is ideal when video is being displayed.
Ideal for video applications, the dynamic iris is a channel-configurable option. It automatically adjusts an internal iris to extend the range of blacks and provide richer details during dark scenes for true image reproduction. A variable contrast ratio of 2500-10,000:1 produces a picture with a rich, dynamic appearance.
Embedded Christie Twist
Standard in all Christie M Series models, Christie Twist enables seamless edge-blending of multiple curved images faster and more easily than through traditional, manual methods. Controlled by an easy-touse GUI, users can expertly control and edge-blend or stack multiple curved images. As well, images can be warped to fit virtually any dimension or shape display. Embedded Christie Twist ensures that all M Series projectors work with value-added accessories, such as Christie AutoStack.
Christie Twist offers enhanced warping and blending for exact geometric mapping regardless of the shape or surface.
External processors are not required for simple, small tiled and blended arrays, therefore lowering your costs for installation. 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 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.
Comprehensive Color Adjustment (CCA)
When used with multiple projectors, this feature ensures accurate color matching and uniformity across the entire image.
Sound and Output Frequency
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.
This feature lowers the cost of ownership by reducing power consumption and extending lamp life when the projector is not in use. In this mode, if a signal is not detected, the projector will close the shutter and reduce power to the lamps. If there is still no signal, the system will go into standby mode. If a signal is detected during the ramp-down phase, the unit will revert back to its full power, dual lamp mode.
Lamp Power Management (LPM)
When a presentation depends on the full attention of the audience, noise from a projector can be distracting. The filterfree design with auto-sensing fan and temperature sensors automatically adjust for a virtually noise-free operation.
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.
Wide screen ratios provide a multitude of benefits in a variety of different projection applications. Carefully matching the pixel format of the projector with that of the sources to be displayed will ensure the best image quality and maximum impact. The M Series offers 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 models to match the aspect ratio requirements of any application.
Christie AutoStack is a software driven, camera-based system that enables stacking and blending of projector arrays in a fraction of the time it takes to do manually and automates the regular maintenance of a blended display. It is designed for use on a flat screen and supports various screen sizes and aspect ratios, using screen points for quick geometric calibration. An optional curve module (sold separately) is also available for curved screen applications.
Dust Sealed Engine
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 – literally – 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; 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 J Series and M Series projectors. 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.
If the environment you're working in requires more than the protection of our dust sealed engine, choose from one of two filters (coarse dust and fog juice). Help extend the life of your projector and protect your investment from dirt, dust, sand as well as fog, smoke, hazers and pyrotechnics. Each Christie M Series projector is equipped with two removable side panels that are designed to hold a filter, if required.
Portrait Display Capabilities
M Series 200W and 350W models have built-in capabilities to project in portrait orientation – no additional equipment required. Legacy M Series models require the latest firmware to enable portrait capabilities.
