It delivers a powerful 6,500 ANSI lumens and combines SXGA+ resolution with a contrast ratio of up to 7500:1. BrilliantColorâ„¢, DNXâ„¢, and the latest-generation 10-bit image processing technology produce dramatic color rendering and video reproduction, broader color bandwidth, and significantly reduced image noise. â€œThe Christie DS+655 draws upon cutting-edge technologies and features the latest powerful electronics and video processing that define image excellence in the market,â€? observes George Tsintzouras, senior product manager, Business Products, Christie. â€œBest of all, it meets our customersâ€™ specific needs for brightness and depth of color, while ensuring excellent installation flexibility, long lamp life and the best price/performance on the market.â€? AV installers have the choice of six motorized, high-performance lens options with a throw ratio range from 0.8:1 through 7:1.
