FPS Image AnyPlace 200
Christie and Flexible Picture Systems (FPS) have formed the Flexible Partner Program. The program offers Christie dealers the opportunity to combine the geometry correction and edge blending of the Image AnyPlace-200 standalone scaler product with Christie's single-chip DLP and LCD projectors. Company officials said that through the Flexible Partner Program, Christie dealers receive preferred pricing on the Image AnyPlace-200, priority customer service, and extended hours of technical support.
"We are really excited to be able to provide our high-performance geometry correction and edge blending to Christie's customers," said Steve Wood, president and CEO of Flexible Picture Systems, in a statement.
"The Image AnyPlace-200 product is an excellent complement for our single-chip DLP and LCD projectors," said Frank Anzures, product manager of Christie Business Products, in a statement. "With Image AnyPlace, we can now add precision warp and blend features to any projector in these product lines."
Image AnyPlace-200 is a 1U rack-mount box with multiple video inputs and outputs. Its geometry correction features enable the precise fitting of projected images to flat, curved, spherical, and irregular screens, providing accuracy in projector-stacking and passive 3D applications. Image AnyPlace's edge blending capabilities provide bit-mapped or rectangular-blend zones before or after geometry correction.
Officials said the Image AnyPlace-200 provides flexibility in designing multiprojector installations for house of worship, government, and higher education markets. Under the agreement, Christie customers in these markets can take advantage of the trend for creating seamless display environments on curved screens and unconventional projection surfaces, according to the company.
