Christie has revealed the first device from its new Boxer range of projectors.

The manufacturer announced the launch of the new Christie Boxer 4K30 projector, which the company says sets a new industry benchmark for rental staging and fixed installation applications.

Among the potential uses cited by the firm for the technology are concerts, amusement parks, projection mapping projects, museums and planetariums.

Mike Garrido, senior product manager at Christie, stated that the brightness-to-size and brightness-to-weight ratios of the Boxer 4K30 make it a standout choice of projector in its class.

He said: "This Boxer 4K30 and the Boxer Series is about our customers winning more bids, winning more repeat business, earning more money per project and satisfying the needs of the most demanding clients.

"Boxer is optimised to provide an unprecedented user experience and everything from ease of use to lumens to durability to shipping size to weight has been taken into account."

Jeevan Vivegananthan, senior director of engineering at Christie, added that the Boxer 4K30 is packed with exciting new features, such as allowing users to monitor lamp life levels via their smartphone. The projector even comes with its very own built-in toolbox, he pointed out.

The Boxer 4K30 boasts full connectivity including 3G-SDI, HDBaseT, Display Port, DVI-I, HDMI, VGA, and 5 BNC, along with a complete lens suite and a colour LCD preview panel readout.
