Christie Gathers Multiple Projector Technologies

Christie really put together a show in itself in the design of its multi-story booth with 2D models on one side, a 3D demo area on the other side and upstairs they were showing curved screen edge blending that can be calibrated easily. If one projector gets bumped into the wrong alignment, a quick click can have it reset for perfect edge blending again in seconds. I was impressed with the massive machines and their easy command. The 3D demos seemed to draw the biggest crowd and there were visible and audible reactions as the demo videos got to the places where the 3D effects really jumped out. At least no one got dizzy and fell over but I did see a few swaying as the video loop got to the good parts. It seems that 3D is still in the “prove it to me” stage but the Christie demo apparently got some positive attention and won over some converts as I watched the action there. The setup of their booth was a marvel in itself with just under a week to get it all built and everything up and working. I learned that it wasn’t tested all-up anywhere until it was in place at the show so that was really hanging it over the edge!
