Christie, the global visual and audio technology company, has announced the launch of the latest version of Christie Mystique, an automated camera-based alignment software solution that simplified and automates the process of warping and blending multiple projectors into a single canvas.
The update includes two new features designed to enhance overall image fidelity and uniformity in blended project arrays when protecting on either a flat or a curved surface.
New automated features
A dirty or non-uniform projection surface can spoil an installation. However, the new background compensation feature can detect large contrast differences on the surface and then made adjustments to compensate, resulting in a uniform projected image with no distracting background issues.
In addition, Christie Mystique Version 2.5 has a new automated colour and brightness uniformity feature. This allows users to quickly make adjustments across projectors to make sure that the blend areas cannot be seen. The camera-based accuracy of this solution means users are able to easily display one seamless image.
“Christie Mystique saves both set-up time and costs while delivering freedom to project almost anywhere,” says Joel St-Denis, senior product manager, Christie. “Mystique takes the guesswork out of multi-projector systems so that the focus is on delivering an amazing experience for audiences. It is an essential tool for anyone installing a blended projector array.”
Mystique is available in five editions: Mystique Lite, Essentials, Pro Venue, Premium and Large Scale Experience Editions. Christie Mystique Version 2.5 is available for download now.
Recently, Christie officially became a technology partner for the redevelopment of BAFTA’s headquarters in London. Meanwhile, earlier this month the company also unveiled the latest addition to its successful Captiva series, the Captiva DWU500S 1DLP ultra-short-throw laser projector. This is suitable for a wide range of small to midsize applications, from classrooms and conference rooms to museums and retail.
