The Christie Eclipse: A Projector Built to Eclipse the Competition

Calling all AV technicians! Are you ready to experience the pinnacle of home theater projection? Then feast your eyes on the Christie Eclipse, a technological marvel that will redefine your understanding of image quality.

Built for the Discerning Home Theater Enthusiast

The Christie Eclipse isn’t your average projector. This 6-chip DLP monster boasts native 4K resolution, true HDR, and a mind-blowing RGB pure laser light source. But what truly sets it apart is the option of three lumen outputs: 9,000, 17,000, and a staggering 25,000 lumens. This means the Eclipse can conquer any screen size, bathing it in vibrant, crystal-clear visuals, regardless of ambient light.

Unveiling a World of Color

The Eclipse’s RGB pure laser technology throws down the gauntlet when it comes to color reproduction. By utilizing separate lasers for red, green, and blue, it achieves a color gamut close to the full BT.2020 standard. This translates to an incredibly lifelike image, bursting with a wider range of colors than traditional projectors can manage. Imagine depicting scenes with unparalleled depth and realism, leaving your audience speechless.

Blacks So Deep, You’ll Need Scuba Gear

Thanks to its innovative 6-chip DLP design, the Eclipse achieves a contrast ratio of up to 20,000,000:1. That’s right, twenty million to one! This translates to inky blacks that traditional projectors can only dream of. Every detail in those dark, shadowy corners will be revealed, adding a whole new dimension to your client’s home theater experience.

A Projector Built to Last

Packed with cutting-edge laser technology, the Eclipse boasts a long lifespan and exceptional reliability. Say goodbye to lamp replacements and flickering images. This projector is built to deliver stunning visuals for years to come, ensuring your client’s home theater remains a haven of exceptional viewing for a long time.
