Christie Claims It Has the World’s First 4K DCI RGB Laser Projector with HDR

Christie just launched the Christie Eclipse, a 4K RGB pure laser projector featuring Christie RealLaser illumination with HDR — aimed at the ProAV market. According to Christie, the Eclipse is capable of a degree of detail and depth of color that has never been possible with any ProAV projection system. With true HDR, Christie Eclipse can process and reproduce HDR content on screen, in 4K DCI resolution (4096×2160), at both high and low brightness levels. The result is a contrast ratio of up to 20,000,000:1, which ensures that the finest details are visible, even in extreme black and white ranges.

With a color gamut approaching the full Rec.2020 and Rec.2100 color space, Christie Eclipse exceeds the Rec. 2100 200,000:1 contrast ratio specification by 100x with a frame rate capability of up to 120fps. Inputs include two 12G-SDI, two HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort and one HDBaseT.

Christie Eclipse offers the flexibility to customize the brightness level to suit the environment, from 2000 lumens up to 30,000, features Christie TruLife electronics for 4K at 120Hz performance and Christie Twist software for warping and blending capabilities. An optional Christie Terra input card is available to directly to a Christie Terra AV-over-IP SDVoE system.

Christie Eclipse also supports Christie Mystique an automated, camera-based warping and blending tool that simplifies the deployment and maintenance of multi-projector arrays. Here are the detailed specs.
