Christie Captiva Series of Laser Phosphor Projectors Delivers Big Images to Small Spaces
The low-maintenance Captiva Series from Christie employ a hybrid laser phosphor light engine, along with a DLP chipset to provide users up to 20,000 hours of operational life.
Using a hybrid laser phosphor design, the Captiva Series, which will start shipping in September, is capable of providing 20,000 hours of lamp-free operation with the ability to achieve full brightness within seconds. It can instantaneously shift into standby mode with no cool-down period.
The product line is available with an 0.25:1 ultra-short throw lens to allow dealers to place it within a few inches from a wall or projection screen in portrait or landscape (tabletop or inverted) mode without having to look at shadows from obstructions.
“Christie’s ongoing commitment to solid state illumination continues with the official launch of Captiva Series. Both models place the projector extremely close to the screen which means your audience can engage much closer without creating shadows which disrupt the image,” says Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. “Captiva Series becomes even more engaging for viewers when paired with the Captiva Touch and IR pen interactive options. Christie Captiva is perfect for running one or more applications simultaneously in museums, retail outlets and classrooms. And the high definition provides a beautiful canvas to showcase products, information or, with the optional Captiva Touch, engage customers by letting them interact with the content.”
