Christie system used in Rockwell Collins/STS simulator

Cologne, Germany, 2 May 2007. Rockwell Collins' engineers selected Christie's projection solutions to power the visualization system for two full-dome simulators for training Saudi Air Force Tornado aircraft pilots. The domes will each feature 11 Christie Matrix 4000 3-chip DLP projectors and marks the first time that 3-chip DLP technology will be utilized in high-performance fast-jet simulators.

Rockwell Collins provides solutions for simulation and training and advanced visual system products portfolio for the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force and in the international arena.

The Christie Matrix 4000 projectors deliver up to 6000 ANSI lumens, with an adjustable contrast ratio from 1000-2000:1 for accurate nighttime scenes. Combined with ChristieTWIST image warping, enhanced edge-blending capabilities, and Christie AccuFrame to significantly reduce visual artifacts caused by fast-moving objects, the results are high image realism and performance.

Dave Fluegeman, VP, Visual Environments at Christie USA, comments: "We were required to demonstrate to a wide audience that the Matrix simulation projectors met the demanding requirements of this project. We were chosen based on our superior performance and ability to back up our technology with industry-leading service and support."
