Projector manufacturer Christie has launched a new 3D projector with WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution.

The Christie Mirage WQ-L is an LED based 1 DLP projector with a brightness of 800 ANSI lumens. It features an LED light engine that provides users with high quality image over 60,000 hours, approximately 6.5 years.

The projector also includes Christie's ArrayLOC technology, which provides synchronised colour and brightness management throughout use, reducing the need for calibration.

According to Christie, the Mirage WQ-L is designed to be cost-effective whilst delivering a flexible display solution for education, entertainment and events.

Christies's Mirage WQ-L also features their KoRE electronics and fireware technology, which supplies the projector with high input capability and a high level of control over the image.

Larry Paul, senior director of technology and visualisation solutions managements at Christie, has announced that the projector's sealed LED based light engine removes the need for filters, reducing the heat and the need for excessive maintenance.

He said: "Its flexibility and low-maintenance design makes it the perfect display solution for a wide range of customers that require a high-performance system that is also eco-friendly and backed by Christie’s reputation for quality and reliability.”
