Christie launched its new LWU505 digital projector at Integrated Systems Europe 2011 in Amsterdam. The LWU505 targets educational facilities, corporations, government agencies and houses of worship applications that require a high-brightness and cost-effective widescreen WUXGA, 1920x1200 native resolution) LCD projector at 5,000 ANSI lumens.
Suitable for small to large meeting and multi-use rooms, small auditoriums, and training and conference rooms, according to the company, the Christie LWU505 presents full HD in a 16:10 aspect ratio, 2,000:1 contrast ratio, and with 10-bit image processing for grayscale rendering and artifact-free images. The motorized lens shift and zoom give customers the ability to fine-tune images for optimal viewing, while the projector's mechanical lens shutter instantly blocks all light instead of simply blacking out the projected image.
"The WUXGA resolution is designed for HD video and high-resolution data for use with personal computers, laptops, and the newest touch and tablet technologies," said Frank Anzures, Christie Business Products product manager, in a statement.
Customers will also benefit from the LWU505's 3D keystone technology, a four-corner geometry correction tool for image alignment on flat or simple curved screen projection. "With 3D Keystone technology, users have more flexibility in projector placement without sacrificing image quality," Anzures said. "Each corner independently adjusts to compensate for any keystone distortion caused by the projector's placement.
The Christie LWU505 is suited to simple curved screens applications and environments where standard horizontal or vertical keystone adjustments don't meet requirements. It comes with a three-year parts and labor warranty and ships this month.
