Purpose-Built Rental/Staging Solution Automatically Stacks and Blends up to 12 Projectors Amsterdam/INTEGRATED SYSTEMS EUROPE – (January 29, 2008) – Christie, a global leader in visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, introduces Christie AutoStack(tm), a powerful, yet cost-effective and easy-to-use image-blending solution that automatically calibrates and blends multiple projector displays with unsurpassed speed and accuracy. The first of its kind to be purpose-built for the Rental/Staging market, Christie AutoStack addresses the market’s “need for speed� in the set-up of increasingly complex projector arrays, utilizing a minimal level of technical expertise to achieve quality, professional results. Today’s staging events demand ever more sophisticated visual displays that employ intricate networking, blending and stacking. Christie AutoStack features an innovative, camera-based solution and intuitive user interface that achieves highly accurate blending of up to twelve projectors in an average of just two minutes per projector – faster than manual set-ups by the best professional. Used in conjunction with the industry-leading Christie Twist™ warping and blending solution, the system supports various screen sizes and aspect ratios, utilizing screen points for quick geometric calibration. In addition, it supports horizontal and vertical blending, with a live camera preview to aid in quick set-up. Christie AutoStack is also ideal for blended and stacked projection displays that are permanently installed. End users can tweak and align their systems to maintain optimal performance and image quality without spending excess time and labor. “The experience level required to create and maintain blended systems in today’s sophisticated staging venues is very high, while at the same time the cost of experienced labor makes it difficult to stay on budget,� observed Joel St-Denis, value-add product manager, Business Products. “With Christie AutoStack, less experienced users can simply point the projector to overlap the desired screen area, set up the Christie AutoStack camera, input their instructions, and the software does the rest. It’s a powerful, economical solution that solves one of the industry’s most critical challenges.� He noted: “Christie AutoStack is ideal for many of our customers. It represents the competitive edge that will allow them to cost-effectively meet the needs of their most demanding clients, while maintaining the highest standards of quality.� Christie AutoStack is part of the Christie TrueIMAGE(tm) family of integration solutions that includes the industry-leading Automatic Display System Calibration and Motorized Optical Blending for projection arrays. Visit Christie at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2008, Stand F82, for a demonstration of the new Christie AutoStack.
