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 2500
to 7000 ANSI lumens. Our SuperCRTM technology 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 ChristieTWIST TM 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 Matrix Series
is suited to many applications and is also an ideal CRT replacement solution.
Recreate reality with the Christie Matrix Series.
Matrix Series
The Canadian Marine Institute (CMI) is
part of the Memorial University of
Newfoundland, and is Canada’s foremost
fisheries and marine training facility.
Established in 1964, the complex is used
extensively for training a variety of
scenarios ranging from applications based
around navigating the Atlantic Ocean at
various times of the day (both full daylight
and night-time scenarios), as well as
difficult winter and Arctic environments.
The Christie TotalVIEW™ solution
operated by CMI is a Full Mission Bridge
Simulator (FMB) comprised of a full 360˚
field-of-view screen that is 24' tall, with
the ship bridge being mounted on a full
motion platform. The upgraded display
now produces almost 15 million pixels,
and is powered by Christie Matrix Series
projectors – the world’s leading purposebuilt DLP® simulation projection technology.
The TotalVIEW™ solution also features
ChristieTWIST™ – a state-of-the-art edgeblending and image warping technology.
Display Technology
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.
Image Quality
The Matrix S+5K and all Matrix HD projectors
are driven by Xenon illumination and deliver
superior image quality and the ability to colormatch 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 TM) to enable
superior color saturation, color matching and
superior black levels for unsurpassed day and
night scene blending.
Image Processing
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 lets the user
match the blended (gutter) black levels with
the non-blended black levels.
Ease of Use
A user-friendly Graphic User Interface (GUI)
makes operation and set-up of the entire
Christie Matrix Series uncomplicated. The GUI
enables full and easy control of the projector.
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 TM 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.
Operation and maintenance of the Christie
Matrix Series is easy as well with lower power
consumption, fewer lamp changes and less
down-time. Field-alignable 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).
