The Christie Boxer 4K30 ships in April
The Netherlands - A combination of the most lumens, the highest number of pixels, and 3DLP quality, combined with the smallest, lightest, yet most rugged design available, defines the new Christie Boxer 4K30 projector. This makes its worldwide debut at ISE Amsterdam this month.

The first offering from the new Boxer Series, the Boxer 4K30 is designed for rental staging and fixed installation applications including concerts, amusement parks, projection mapping projects, museums, planetariums and more.

The Boxer 4K30 has six 450W mercury lamps delivering 30,000 centre lumens. Weighing less than 68 kg, the Boxer 4K30 can be carried by two individuals and offers 4K native resolution and awarding winning Christie Tru-Life image processing. The Christie Boxer delivers undisputed performance and heavyweight presentation capability in a middleweight package. And is already a global hit with 200 units sold worldwide before launch.

Housed in two three-lamp cartridges, the six long-life mercury lamp modules are easy to handle, maintain, and change and stock, which means a better return on investment and less consumables. Users can monitor the lamp hours and serial numbers through Near Field Communication (NFC) with each lamp - simplifying the effort required to track lamp-life and the ability to make fast changeovers. Users can even monitor lamp life levels using a smartphone.

Boxer's Christie TruLife electronics package is equally at home supporting the most demanding high bit depth, high frame rate, native 4K signals as well as seamlessly supporting HD signals with on-board upscaling, making it a simple task to fit it into existing HD workflows. And with the latest evolution of Christie Twist built-in, images can be blended and warped from multiple projectors onto curved or irregular surfaces without requiring an external solution.

"The brightness-to-size and brightness-to-weight ratios of the Boxer 4K30 is second-to-none in this lumen level of projector - which translates to not only the lightest projector at 30,000 lumens, but also reduced shipping costs and on-site handling." says Mike Garrido, Christie's senior product manager for the Christie Boxer. "This Boxer 4K30 and the Boxer Series is about helping our customers to win more bids, more repeat business, earning more money per project and satisfying the needs of their most demanding clients."

Jeevan Vivegananthan, senior director of engineering, Christie; added: "With the Boxer 4K30 and the entire Boxer Series, the omnidirectional orientation capability means greater installation and placement flexibility. Whether it points up or down, or at any angle, the image maintains its integrity and uniformity throughout the performance or presentation.

"It is optimised to provide an unprecedented user experience and everything from ease of use, to lumens, to durability, to shipping size to weight, has been taken into account."
