CYPRESS, Calif. – Christie® today announced the M 4K25 RGB pure laser projector, the smallest, lightest, and quietest all-in-one RGB pure laser projector on the market. The new M 4K25 RGB continues the original M Series legacy of reliability, ruggedness, and innovation.
First introduced in 2007, the original M Series was a game-changer for the ProAV industry. "The M Series packed a lot of features in a small package," says Larry Paul, executive director, Technology and Custom Solutions, Christie. "Features like the intelligent lens system and embedded Twist for blending and warping were unique at the time, plus its small size and weight, helped it to become Christie’s best-selling line of projectors and lenses."
The new 25,000 lumen 4K UHD resolution M 4K25 RGB pure laser projector reinvents the series, with Christie engineering packing industry-leading features into a small, market-leading form factor weighing in at 92 lbs. RGB pure laser technology delivers twice the color of the original M Series for vibrant, bright images that approach Rec. 2020 color volume, a color standard closest to what the human eye can see.
With TruLife+ electronics all the needed connections are built-in, eliminating the need for optional input cards. TruLife+ also features electronic color convergence (ECC), which allows users to correct color convergence imperfections and individually adjust red, green, and blue via remote, so there’s no need to climb a ladder to make adjustments. Our intelligent lens system (ILS1) makes swapping lenses easy for rental and staging, and offers motorized zoom, focus and offset via remote. Existing Christie owners can use their M, J and Crimson Series lenses, as well as the M Series rigging frame, with the M 4K25 RGB for added cost savings.
Christie’s proprietary precision pixel-shift technology, which reduces or eliminates typical artifacts found in other pixel-shifting technologies, provides UHD 4K resolution at up to 60Hz. With the optional Mirage upgrade, the M 4K25 RGB can support up to UHD 4K at a full 120 Hz for 2D and 3D stereoscopic applications, and the optional Mirage Pro upgrade can support frame rates up to 480Hz at UHD resolution.
"The new M 4K25 RGB doubles the brightness, doubles the color volume capability, and quadruples the resolution over our legacy M Series projectors," says Paul. "And with an unprecedented 50,000 hours of illumination performance and a field replaceable light source, we’ve gone way beyond the legacy of the M Series as an industry workhorse in terms of long life and durability."
The original M Series projectors are trusted around the world, including at The Barbican in London, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and China’s Dai Show Theater, to deliver bright visuals in a reliable and rugged package.
Christie M 4K25 RGB ships November 2021.
