Audio-visual solutions company Christie has announced it is launching a series of new 3LCD digital projectors.

The company revealed the five new products at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show, which took place in Las Vegas recently.

Christie's five new D Series models have been designed to act as the replacements for the Christie LHD700 and LX700, as well as the Christie LW551i, LWU501i and LX601i.

Frank Anzures, senior product manager at Christie, stated that the aim of the D Series projectors is to allow professional integrators to "fulfil the end user’s situational needs". He added that this is why Christie has come up with the "innovative Single Connect option that removes cords, wires, and unsightly cable covers from view".

The new Christie Connect option is one of the highlights from the new range of 3LCD digital projectors launched by Christie, with the devices featuring a Wireless USB option that provides monitoring and collaboration capabilities in multi-user environments.

Mr Anzures said: "Form and fit are key factors in this market segment and Christie created a solution that is more than simply speeds and feeds. The Ultra Short Throw (UST) lens option gives customers exciting new ways to project and the ability to create beautiful visual environments without worrying about people or objects entering the standard light path."
