Three upgraded versions of the Christie Twist technology have been showcased by digital display manufacturer Christie at the recent Live Design International (LDI) show, held this year in Las Vegas.
Full image projection warping and advanced edge blending in Christie 3-chip DLP projectors is achieved by using the Christie Twist solution, which is capable of controlling and blending numerous curved images on any surface.
The upgraded technology is simpler to use and offers a more precise pixel-to-pixel alignment than the previous technology allowed for. It boasts three tiers of specialised Twist software, with each one aimed at a different set of application requirements, according to the company. While Christie Twist Premium and Christie Twist Pro are paid-for upgrades, Christie Twist can be downloaded for free from the Christie website.
Christie Twist and Christie Twist Premium are ideal for use at live theatre and events venues, along with projection mapping, tradeshows, entertainment venues and corporate boardrooms. Meanwhile, Christie Twist Pro is able to offer unlimited arbitrary placement points, making it the ideal option for use in venues such as flight simulators.
Joel St-Denis, product manager, Christie Digital Systems USA Inc., said: "Christie has developed a more advanced Christie Twist family and added a new category with Christie Twist Premium. Each version of Christie Twist is tailored to specific needs: from simple flat screen multi-projector warps and blends to highly multifaceted applications. Whether the surface is cylindrical, curved, jagged, or any other non-flat shape or surface, Christie has the right Twist solution for the project."
