Christie®, a leader in visual display technologies, today announced the release of software version 6.5 for its award-winning Christie Pandoras Box® media server. Version 6.5 comes with many added benefits for integrators and end users including a powerful new render engine for greater performance, that is able to handle more video files or higher resolutions at a time and also avoid color banding. The 10-bit color depth playback delivers the Rec.2020 color gamut for HDR applications and 4K resolution, while preserving the full color palette (4:4:4) without any chroma subsampling for the best image quality.
“Customers will be amazed by the image quality we can now deliver across our Christie products,” said Markus Zeppenfeld, product manager, Christie. “Providing artifact-free 10-bit images in 240 fps lifts solutions to an entirely new quality level. It’s stunning to see those perfect colors projected or on an LED video wall. Using DPX sequences directly in Pandoras Box eases the workflow as it requires no additional encoding. Colors are kept perfect and lossless, while it minimizes the user’s involvement and allows for the best playback performance.”

Pandoras Box is a family of hardware and software tools for real-time, high frame rate 3D stereoscopic video playback and processing. With its accurate and powerful 3D compositing, warping, rendering and interactive capabilities, visuals are perfectly integrated whether it’s for a live event, on uneven outdoor structures or on visual displays such as LED video walls. And, with accessories like AirScan, an IR-laser multi-touch sensor, motion-controlled user interfaces can be added to create an interactive multimedia display. AirScan, combined with Christie Widget Designer interactive application builder, enables touchless digital content interactivity with the display only a few feet in front of the user.
Christie is the only manufacturer to offer source-to-display solutions for integrators, consultants, dealers and end users. From single displays to more complex multi-display spectaculars, the Pandoras Box family of media servers seamlessly integrates with Christie Spyder X80, Christie Terra, Christie RGB projectors and Christie MicroTiles LED and is trusted by content and projection designers and rental stagers around the world, including the Xpark Aquarium in Taipei, National Opera in Amsterdam, Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land in South Korea, Lufthansa’s 100 anniversary and FIBA Basketball World Cup.
