Powerhouse simulation display solutions
Today’s simulation environments are more demanding than ever
before. With extreme specifications including high contrast and
brightness, and the need to project onto a variety of screen shapes
and sizes... each system is unique. The Christie Matrix Series
is purpose-built to handle even the most challenging of today’s
simulation display requirements.
Offering the highest resolution and the highest contrast ratios,
the Christie Matrix Series is based on DLP ® technology and offers
a range of 2300 to 7000 ANSI lumens. Our SuperCR technology
TM
provides contrast ratios up to 5000:1 allowing for low black levels for
incredibly accurate night scene images. Combined with the highest
color uniformity and features such as Christie Twist image warping
and edge-blending, RGB color matching, full control of gamma curves
and grayscale tracking, high input bandwidth and less than one frame
of propagation delay, the Christie Matrix Series is suited to many
simulation applications and is also an ideal CRT replacement solution.

Standard accessories
Featuring high-quality DLP technology and true
SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) and full HD (1920 x 1080)
resolutions, the Christie Matrix Series is highly
reliable and will accept signals from VGA to QXGA
(2048 x 1536) resolution. DLP® technology delivers
high brightness and unsurpassed color, brightness
uniformity and control capabilities. As well, this
proven digital technology is low maintenance and
completely compatible with 4:3, 5:4 and 16:9 content.
With 10-bit image processing, the Christie Matrix
Series offers high bandwidth signal processing for
excellent reproduction of the source without motion
artifacts and smearing. For added ease of blending
in tiled applications, Digital Black Level Adjustment
(DBLA ) lets the user match the blended (gutter)
black levels with the non-blended black levels.
• IR keypad (w/batteries)
Ease of use
• Fixed and zoom lenses available

A user-friendly Graphic User Interface (GUI)
makes operation and set-up of these projectors
uncomplicated. Multiple control options let the user
choose what’s best for their application – built-in,
IR and wired remote keypad; RS-422 or RS-232
control; or through ChristieNET via an Ethernet
port. Motorized lens functions provide power focus,
zoom, horizontal and vertical offset – all at the touch
of a button. Auto set-up recognizes sources and
sets up correct brightness, contrast and position.

The Matrix S+5K and all Matrix HD projectors
are driven by Xenon illumination and deliver
superior image quality and the ability to
color-match multiple projectors for extremely
bright, color rich, uniform images – whether
multiple projectors on a single screen, or
multiple tiled screen displays. The Matrix 3000
features dual Osram P-VIP® lamps for increased
brightness, reliability and cost-effective
operation. The Matrix S+2K, Matrix S+5K and
All Matrix HD models utilize a Color Purity Filter
(CPF ) to enable enhanced color saturation,
color matching and superior black levels for
unsurpassed day and night scene blending.
TM
New for 2008, the Christie Matrix S+2K and HD2
include an extended contrast iris to provide even
more realistic night scene operation.
The Christie Matrix Series features the widest
source compatibility and has built-in Ethernet
networking for full compatibility with
ChristieNETTM for total projector monitoring
and control capabilities.

Serviceability
Operation and maintenance of the Christie Matrix
Series is easy as well with lower power consumption,
fewer lamp changes and less down-time. Fieldalignable DMDs and a cleanable optical engine put
full control in the hands of the user. Replacement lamp
costs are low and Christie offers the best warranties on
the market – 2 years parts and labor (excluding lamp).

Military simulation and aviation specialists, CAE recently completed their
third upgrade of the Central Air Traffic Control School (CATCS) simulator
at RAF Shawbury. Replacing old Electrohome Marquee 8500 CRT projectors,
the five compact Christie Matrix 2000’s are pole-mounted in the original
positions vacated by the Marquees. The display itself is 13.5m wide and
2.16m high at SXGA resolution, creating a 210-degree panoramic
Field-of-View of the virtual airfield. This entire environment simulates
the movement of 3D aircraft and vehicles around the airfield.
As Flt Lt Dave Harvey, in charge of the base’s VIS/SIM facility explained,
“There was a requirement for upgrading the projectors, based on feedback
received from the instructors. The next logical step after CRT projection was
into DLP ®. We asked CAE to investigate and come up with a solution, and
they recommended the Christie Matrix 2000.”
Fed from five Evans & Sutherland simFUSION image generators, the
projectors must deliver unprecedented realism and minimize downtime.
