Christie introduces rear-screen tiling projection system
Wednesday, 15 May 2002
Harnessing two decades of projection engineering know-how, Christie has announced the launch of its new line of single-chip SXGA DLP rear-screen tiling projection systems - the CS70-500Xe stackable display cube and the RPMS-500Xe rear projection module.

Both projection systems are engineered and manufactured at Christie’s IS09001 registered facility and are designed for applications where high reliability, long-term performance and stability are critical. The CS70-500Xe stackable cube displays native SXGA (1280x1024) resolution across a 70in diagonal high-contrast, high-gain screen, manufactured also by Christie. The depth of the CS70-500Xe is only 34". Using a 500W CERMAX Xenon user-replaceable lamp, the CS70-500Xe projects over 700 cd/m2 (nits) ANSI brightness. The double speed, six-segment colour wheel ensures long life and high reliability.

The RPMS-500Xe is the rear projection module component of the CS70-500Xe in a self-contained, industrial-design package (no cube/screen configuration) and designed specifically for customised display wall installations. The RPMS-500Xe displays native SXGA resolution and supports up to UXGA (1600x1200) resolution. It provides 1200 ANSI lumens brightness using the same Xenon illumination system as the CS70-500Xe. Unique to the RPMS-500Xe is its integrated six-axis geometry adjustment system which allows for precise positioning of the optical display head behind the display wall or screen. The versatility of such a system is in the achievement of both 0° and 90° lens orientation of the optical head itself. The projector can be ordered with a 0.76:1 ultra short throw tiling lens or a 1.2:1 short-throw tiling lens.

Christie has also recently launched a new series of display wall controllers. The FRC-5000, the first in the series, is designed to integrate and organize a variety of media sources onto large-screen displays where operators can control their entire network operations.
