“By providing from 5,000 to 60,000 lumen
brightness, 4K resolution and on up to the Rec. 2020 color space for the best color
reproduction in the industry, Christie’s RGB laser systems are setting new
standards for incredible brightness, wider color gamut and astounding

The Christie® laser projection system
used in all models is based on a scalable laser light source with a choice of projection
heads and a fiber cable that connects the laser light source with the
projection head. The complete laser projection system is engineered to produce
high brightness levels and exceptional color utilizing a high bit depth 4K
resolution imaging engine.
The Christie Freedom laser illumination
system’s modularity allows for 5000 lumen increments (‘steps of light’) output per
module in a rack-mounted array of modules. The Laser Module consists of
multiple RGB lasers, a cooling system and a fiber connection, which allows each
module to be self-contained; therefore providing modular redundancy to the
Christie Freedom laser illumination system.
