Christie Mirage HD18

1920 x 1080 resolution - 20,000 lumens


The Christie Mirage HD18 DLP projector sets a new benchmark in stereographic projection as the first and only full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution 3D active stereo solution – utilized in a single projector or multi-projector array. The Christie Mirage HD18 enables a new level of compatibility with computers and infrastructure that supports HD active stereo, up to 120Hz output due to unique image processing technology from up to 60Hz input, without requiring super bandwidth DVI or Analog infrastructure.

With a wider field of view and active stereo from a single projector, the Mirage HD18 is simple to set up and easy to use in large auditoriums for increased brightness and more pixels on the wall. Part of the Christie Mirage HD Series, the Christie Mirage HD18 is the highest brightness HD stereoscopic projector available with 18,000 ANSI lumens, the highest contrast, excellent colour and brightness uniformity control capability.

Light Output Control (LITELOC™) Provides constant brightness tracking and monitors lamp output. It also automatically adjusts the power to ensure constant, uniform brightness across the image – on a multiple-projector screen or multiple-screen display.
Comprehensive Color Adjustment Provides the ability to individually adjust actual RGB channels for even color matching within individual projectors. This produces true color representation across multi-screen applications for a completely blended image.
