Christie’s Captiva Series of 1DLP laser phosphor projectors was recently on show at CEDIA Expo 2015, having begun shipping to customers in September.

Previewed at Campus Technology 2015 and at InfoComm 2015, where it earned a Best of Show award, the Christie Captiva Series provides 20,000 hours of high performance lamp-free operation with the ability to achieve full brightness within seconds with the capacity to move instantaneously into standby mode with no cool-down period.

Available with a 0.25:1 ultra-short throw lens, the Christie Captiva Series can be mounted within inches from a screen or wall – in portrait or landscape (tabletop, inverted) mode – without shadows obstructing the image.

Christie boasts that this is the only solid-state projector available with 3,000+ lumens, a 0.25:1 ultra-short throw lens and choice between HD or UltraWide resolutions.

“The Ultra Wide aspect ratio commonly surprises people when they first see it,” comments Curtis Lingard, product manager for the Captiva Series.

“It’s ideal for retail and museums to capture audience’s attention in either landscape or portrait orientation.

“The UltraWide aspect ratio is also perfect for running one or more applications simultaneously on your desktop in meetings or classrooms – you can see several windows at the same time.

“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.” 

Two models from the Captiva Series are available to purchase now.

The Captiva DHD400S offers native 16:9 aspect ratio matching up perfectly with the most common signals used today.

The ultra-wide Captiva DUW350S is designed to bring a new captivating and creative wide canvas for tight spaces and, simultaneously, offer a unique, but practical workspace for everyday activities.

“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,” notes Curtis.

“Captiva Series becomes even more engaging for viewers when paired with the Captiva Touch and IR pen interactive options.”
