Christie Introduces TruLife Platform for Hyper-realistic Images

Category: NAB
CYPRESS, CA — Visual technology display company Christie unveiled its latest electronics platform – Christie TruLife – with a proprietary, 1.2 Gigapixel per second, floating point architecture.

Christie TruLife electronics forms the basis for the latest generation of projectors capable of delivering industry-leading ultra high resolution, high frame rate video with unprecedented image fidelity (e.g. 4K resolution image processing at 60 fps and beyond). The current standard digital interfaces such as DVI have a bandwidth of 165 MHz.

Anchored by a high-performance electronics engine that leverages the latest in field-programmable gate array (FPGA) integrated circuits (ICs), the platform is capable of supporting a video-processing pipeline of up to 1.2 Gigapixels per second (GPix/s). Christie projectors based on the new electronics platform will use this very high capacity image-processing power to deliver immersive, hyper-realistic video experiences.

Many industries will immediately benefit from this original video-processing electronics architecture, with cases in point including those end users creating groundbreaking theme-park attractions, visualization "power walls" and flight simulation environments.  Christie TruLife electronics will underpin these applications providing customers with realistic experiences, alleviating the image blurring and motion sickness that may accompany these environments.

Taking a common measurement of video-processing power - the speed or rate with which video data is processed, typically measured in Gigapixels per second (GPix/s) - the Christie platform scales to reach 1.2 GPix/s, which is nearly 10x faster than standard high-def projection and 4x faster than typical 3D projection, as well as double what other 4K projectors are capable of. 

Launching throughout 2013, Christie projectors featuring TruLife will enable 4K2K, Ultra-HD/Quad-HD resolutions today at 60 fps, and will have the capability to support higher resolutions and higher frame rates.
