Christie staging solutions at Prolight+Sound
13 March 2013
Germany - Having been involved with the exhibition for a number of years, Christie this year returns to exhibiting in its own right at Frankfurt Prolight+Sound 2013 ( booth # 9.0, C57) presenting a number of advanced rental staging solutions for the industry touring and corporate event segments.
Products from the popular and powerful Roadster J and M Series 3-chip DLP projectors, along with Christie Nitro Solutions integrated moving yokes and digital projector systems will form the centrepieces on the stand - accompanied by Christie MicroTiles in different shapes and formats.
The Christie Nitro YK100 is a single-arm yoke that has been purpose designed for the Christie M Series and Christie LX1500 to provide a range of brightness levels (5,700 to 15,000 ANSI lumens) to choose from. This flexible system includes an interchangeable head system that enables users to replace the video projector with another Christie projector on the yoke - with movement and control manageable via DMX protocol. Also present will be the ChristieYK50, a small, dual-arm yoke, which supports the Christie LX700 and Christie LHD700 projectors.
These yokes can be flown, rigged or set up at floor level, according to application requirements. To demonstrate this versatility Christie will stage a comparison between the YK100 and a standard automated discharge light - positioned next to each other and running off the same DMX console.
This is designed to prove conclusively the benefits rental stagers and lighting designers can derive from using a yoke-based system to show video content that can be changed on the fly rather than having to create new gobos for the fixed moving light each time. Orchestrating the presentation will be Christie field application engineer (and experienced event technician), Jan Walter, based in the German office, who over the years has been involved in programming and operating the scenography at numerous major events including the European Song Contest.
The ability of the Christie J Series and M Series to take performance to a new level will also be demonstrated via a projection mapping display onto an uneven surface. Nitro yokes will be used to add branding and extend the visuals shown on the façade to other areas of the stand and to enhance the impact of the projection onto floors, ceilings etc.
In addition to their own booth, Christie will support the stands of German partner, ETHA, and media server manufacturer Coolux, with product.
