June 1, 2021 — Today Christie® announced the launch of the Christie Inspire Series, a family of fixed zoom lens 1DLP® laser projectors in three brightness options designed for small to mid-sized environments, including classrooms, boardrooms, museums, houses of worship and more.
The Inspire Series offers professional-grade features in a budget-friendly package. A range of brightness options, starting at 6000 lumens, as well as 7200 lumens and 8100 ANSI lumen options (7150, 8500, and 9600 ISO lumens respectively), brings bold images in WUXGA resolution to any application. And with laser illumination, the Inspire Series offers up to 20,000 hours of low-maintenance operation to 50% brightness.
Easily integrate the Inspire Series into spaces that require a simplified projection solution, like meeting rooms and briefing rooms, with AMX and Crestron connectivity. Audiences will appreciate the Inspire Series’ whisper quiet operation, and omni-directional installation capabilities allows for added installation flexibility.
“The Inspire Series offers a winning combination of low-maintenance performance and value, without sacrificing advanced capabilities,” says Chris Kee, executive director, Enterprise product development, Christie. “Motorized lenses offer easy zoom, focus and offset from the remote control, and our DWU960ST-iS 8100 ANSI lumen model is one of the brightest short throw projectors currently available.” The Inspire DWU760A-iS 6000 ANSI lumen model is TAA compliant for government applications, like briefing rooms and meeting spaces.
The new series goes beyond standard projector blending with Christie Twist™, a proprietary built-in image warping and blending software for up to six arrayed projectors and up to 81 grid control points, and is compatible with Christie Mystique™ Lite, an automated camera-based alignment software for up to three Christie projectors. Mystique Lite is available for download at no additional cost.
Christie’s range of 1DLP projectors are trusted by customers globally, and deliver amazing experiences including engaging students at the Naval Academy Athletic Association’s Akerson Theater, transporting visitors at Daxing International Airport’s digital experience pavilion and entertaining guests at Alboa’s entertainment centers.
Christie Inspire Series will be available beginning in August 2021.
