Christie is pleased to announce that its product, Christie Eclipse, has been named the recipient of a Thea Award for “Outstanding Achievement – Technical Innovation” by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), a global industry association. Christie Eclipse is Pro-AV’s first true HDR 4K RGB pure laser projector.
The TEA Thea Award 2020 recipients were announced during a press conference at IAAPA Expo 2019. The Thea Awards recognize and celebrate achievement and excellence within the themed entertainment industry around the world.
The TEA Awards Committee noted that Christie Eclipse “…is a true step into the future of projection, particularly for our themed entertainment industry. This projector has been developed by a Christie R&D group that has for many years focused on projection advancement designed to meet the specific needs of our themed entertainment industry. It is appropriate that this group be celebrated for their specific contribution and continuing interest to support our industry with uniquely relevant technologies.”
“We’re deeply honored to have Christie Eclipse named to receive the prestigious TEA Thea Award and for TEA to recognize not only the product but also Christie’s innovation and dedication to the global attractions industry,” says Bryan Boehme, Executive Director, Global Sales and Business Development, Entertainment, Christie. “We are tremendously proud of Christie Eclipse – it’s the culmination of years of research and development, working closely with our partners, which has resulted in a product that is unmatched in the industry.”
The Christie Eclipse projector pushes the boundaries of projection technology. It is a true HDR, true 4K RGB pure laser projector that can display a contrast ratio up to 20,000,000:1, which ensures that the finest details are visible in content even in the extreme black and white ranges. Capable of frame rates up to 120Hz, Christie Eclipse delivers smooth, dynamic content without any distracting motion blur, which is critical for immersing guests in experiences including dark rides and flying theaters.
Larry Paul, Executive Director, Technology and Custom Solutions, Christie, and the product manager for Christie Eclipse, says, “We designed Christie Eclipse to enable attraction designers, planetariums and giant screen theaters to immerse guests in content in a way that hasn’t previously been possible. We’re thrilled to be recognized with this award.”
Christie will formally accept the award on April 18, 2020 at the 26th Annual Thea Awards Gala, a black-tie event held at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.
