Powerhouse Brightness and
Flexibility in a Portable Package
Christie’s Roadster X9 delivers a staggering 8500 ANSI lumens
output from its compact, portable chassis by way of a 1500W Xenon
CERMAX® illumination system making the X9 the brightest and most
cost-effective XGA projector in its class. With exceptional image
clarity and color uniformity – the X9 is a portable presentation
powerhouse that excels in even the most challenging environments.
The X9 features a super-reliable power supply and lamp ballast that
provides consistent power to the lamp, reducing the need for
external power regulators in even the most extreme brown-out
conditions. The X9 flawlessly adapts to power fluctuations to deliver
