Christie extends Mirage projector seriesThe Christie Mirage WU-L targets the professional market
UK - Christie has extended its Mirage Series projector line with the launch of the Christie Mirage WU-L.

The Christie Mirage WU-L delivers "high resolution and rich pixel density, as well as continuous system calibration, in a small footprint unit capable of advanced 2D-3D visualisations". Targeted to the professional market, the Christie Mirage WU-L is suitable for all applications from entertainment, to museums and education, scientific research, manufacturing, and oil and gas exploration facilities, says the company.

The 1-chip DLP with RGB LED is the first Mirage Series projector to use solid-state LED illumination, providing precise, lifelike, vibrant colours and consistent performance over an estimated 60,000-hours (approximately 6.5 years) life cycle.

"The Christie Mirage WU-L is an ideal solution for visualisation professionals whose prime concern is the minimisation of servicing and maintenance costs," said Larry Paul, sr. director of technology and visualisation solutions management, visual environments, Christie. "The Mirage WU-L is lamp-free and the LED-based light engine is sealed, which eliminates any need for filters. No lamps also mean no restrictions on positioning, which really opens up mounting options."

The LED light engine also reduces heat and energy consumption. When combined with the absence of consumables like lamps and filters, and full compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, the Christie Mirage WU-L is destined to be a hit with customers worldwide who are looking to meet eco-friendly targets with their facilities.

The advanced warping and edge-blending capabilities of Christie Twist™ II is standard on the Christie Mirage WU-L, providing extra flexibility, control and ease of set-up without incurring additional set-up costs. The light engine's embedded Christie ArrayLOC™ feature ensures automatic colour and brightness management, reducing the need for recalibrations.

The WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution Christie Mirage WU-L offers dual input 3D mode for passive to active conversion, maintaining the highest performance 3D video content at 120Hz. The unit also supports frame-doubled 3D content from 48-60Hz per eye. Rated at 600 ANSI lumens, the Christie Mirage WU-L provides up to 1400:1 contrast ratio full on/full off.

"This product reflects the future of high-end data projection, with Christie engineers delivering a solution with an extraordinarily long life and 24/7 reliability, while meeting the demanding levels of performance quality that customers expect from Christie products," added Paul. The Christie Mirage WU-L is now shipping.
