Shining light on laser phosphor illumination
Over the last few years, interest in laser projectors has been increasing within the
ProAV and cinema industries. Touted as a major technological development that could
eventually replace traditional lamp-based systems, manufacturers are bringing various
laser-based projectors to market and describing them using terms such as pure laser,
laser phosphor, and laser phosphor hybrid. For customers, laser illumination provides
several benefits over lamp-based projectors, however, it’s important to understand
some of the differences between these new systems.
Christie HS Series
Available in WUXGA and HD resolutions, with up
to 13,500 lumens, Christie BoldColor Technology,
a compact design and super-quiet operation.
Pure laser, also known as RGB laser, generates
light directly from three individual red, green
and blue lasers. The primary benefit of a
RGB laser system is light output while also
achieving higher performance in other
standard image quality parameters such as
color gamut, contrast ratio and dynamic range
when compared to standard lamp-based
systems. As such, RGB laser is ideal for largescale applications and giant screen cinema.
Laser phosphor illumination, such as what’s
used in the Christie® GS Series, Captiva Series
and the HS Series uses blue laser diodes as
the light source instead of a high-intensity
discharge (HID) lamp.
To generate the three primary colors in a
1DLP® laser phosphor projector, the laser
diode shines laser light onto a phosphor
wheel to create yellow light, while blue
laser light passes through an opening in
the phosphor wheel. The projector then
sends the yellow light through a color wheel
to generate red and green, while the blue
laser light passes through a diffusion window.
These red, green and blue colors are then
directed onto an imaging surface, such as a
DLP chip, which directs the light through a lens
and onto the projection screen. The primary
advantage of a laser phosphor projector is the
long life of the illumination system before it
reaches 50% brightness. As a lampless system,
laser phosphor also eliminates the need for
lamps and, in many designs, filter replacements,
reducing the down-time, maintenance and
costs associated with lamp-based projectors.
The long life and low maintenance of laser
phosphor projectors make them ideal for
high-use settings like boardrooms, classrooms,
houses of worship, museums and locationbased entertainment venues.
Christie Captiva Series
Ideal for tight spaces, comes in standard
HD and ultra-wide aspect ratios, and offers
multiple mounting positions, interactivity
capabilities and a host of easy-to-use features.
A laser phosphor hybrid projector is similar to
a laser phosphor system, but with the addition
of other non-laser light sources (usually LED)
to boost the amount of one of the primary
colors being produced. Although not
considered a hybrid projector, the Christie
HS Series and Christie DHD850-GS projector
both feature BoldColor Technology which
employs blue and red laser diodes as well as
a patented optical chamber and specialized
software to produce enhanced color and
saturation compared to typical laser
phosphor projectors.
Christie GS Series
Combine laser phosphor illumination
and 1DLP technology for excellent image
quality, reliability and 20,000 hours of
low-cost operation.
Certain manufacturers claim laser phosphor
projectors provide “maintenance free”
operation. Although it is true that laser
phosphor illumination systems are solid
state and do not require any maintenance
throughout their lifecycle, this only applies
to the light engine. Laser-based projectors
are still subject to regular maintenance such
as cleaning fans and lenses to maximize
efficiency and performance.
With increased brightness, performance
capabilities and long-life, customers will be
able to reap the benefits of these new systems.
