Christie, a leader in simulation projection display and visualization solutions, announces a revolution in simulation and training with the introduction of the Christie Matrix StIMâ„¢. An industry breakthrough, the Christie Matrix StIM is the first customer-driven, arrayed projection display system with LED illumination that simultaneously renders simulated environments in both the visible and infrared spectrums. Its modular architecture features Christie self-maintenance technology for exceptional stability, scalability, and sustainability. Easily achieving eye-limiting resolution, itâ€™s an innovative solution that enables unparalleled realism and flexibility in training.
The Christie Matrix StIM features Christie ArrayLOCâ„¢, an innovative technology that automatically adjusts and balances the brightness, color space and black levels of all the projectors in the display in real-time with no additional latency. The technology creates an exceptionally stable platform that provides the ultimate in scalability, with the LED light source and solid-state technology delivering more than 50,000 hours mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) for years of continuous, virtually maintenance-free operation.
â€œThe Christie Matrix StIM is a true game-changer. Itâ€™s a paradigm shift that challenges industry assumptions about simulation and training,â€? remarks Zoran Veselic, vice president, Visual Environments at Christie. â€œWeâ€™re offering smaller, more reliable projection modules that work as one system and better meet the requirements for eye-limiting resolution, rather than higher resolution single units that have trouble working in arrays. The Christie Matrix StIM is packed with innovations that set new standards of performance for simulation environments of virtually any size and configuration.â€?
A total, purpose-built solution
The Christie Matrix StIM allows for total simulation integration, with limited impact to existing systems, enabling the widest possible field of view and field of regard. It offers maximum fidelity for mission rehearsal, planning, and training for specific environments. Furthermore, with independent control of both the visible and infrared spectrums, the user can train seamlessly in both environments. It is ideal for mission-critical applications in the military as well as the civil markets, such as first responders.
â€œThe Christie Matrix StIM will enable a level of NVG stimulation and corresponding training fidelity never before possible,â€? agrees Quaid â€œQâ€? Quadri, F-16 subject matter expert, BGI, LLC.
The Christie Matrix StIM is a scalable environment display system based on DLPÂ® technology and InfraRGBâ„¢ LED illumination. As a lamp-less system, there are no mounting or orientation restrictions. The LED light source also means very low power consumption that directly translates to lower operating heat, less cooling requirements and savings in electricity for a dramatically reduced sustainment cost.
â€œThe Christie Matrix StIM represents an eloquent, cost-effective simulation solution that launches a new era in night vision training,â€? declares Veselic.
Part of the Christie TotalVIEWâ„¢ solution, the Christie Matrix StIM is the first arrayed simulation system designed and engineered with Christie expertise featuring exceptionally long life, stability, reliability, quality and ease of use.
