This fall, Christie will launch the Captiva DWU500S 1DLP ultra short throw laser projector, designed for classrooms, conference rooms, museums, retail stores and other small-midsize applications. The DWU500S is the third generation of the Captiva Series, and it delivers a host of improvements over its predecessors, including a larger maximum screen size, a significant brightness increase and upgraded WUXGA resolution for sharper all-round performance, while providing 20,000 hours of operation with laser illumination.
“We’re pleased that we’ve been able to provide significant enhancements to our popular Captiva Series while ensuring value to our customers; delivering more brightness and better performance at no extra cost,” says Chris Kee, executive director, Enterprise Product Management, Christie. “Its ultra-short throw lens makes it suitable for a variety of environments, maximizing space without sacrificing visual impact. We expect these latest enhancements to be a welcome upgrade for partners seeking a projector to deliver on price and performance.”
The Captiva DWU500S provides 4,500 ANSI lumens and can display 1920×1200 resolution images up to 12.5 feet (3.8 meters) diagonal in landscape or portrait orientations. The instant on/off functionality allows users to immediately focus on captivating audiences with content rather than worry about setup times.
The Christie Captiva DWU500s is available in black or white and will be available in September 2021.
