We are testing the Christie Roadster WU14K M Projector
The Christie Roadster WU14K M projector has what it takes to thrill audiences: its solid 12500 ANSI lumens brightness delivers an excellent, homogeneous color, with perfect contrast.
Easy to use with the Christie InControl App, you can control and manage Christie projectors directly from your smartphone. With these features, the projector is designed to meet demanding stage requirements. This projector offers a variety of options and we have tested it.
With its double mercury lamps, the Roadster WU14K M projector in its unusually brilliant colouring surpasses many other projectors in its class. The projector offers beautiful full brightness with only two instead of four lamps (450W). A variable contrast ratio of 2500:1 (full on/off) / 650:1 ANSI ensures always sharp, detailed images.
We consider the intelligent lens system (ILS) to be particularly successful.
This ILS automatically detects and calibrates the inserted lens (we test with a standard zoom lens) when it is inserted. The stepper motor-based coding ensures that there is no motor deviation, as typically occurs with DC-coded motors. The lens creates an accurate and repeatable reminder of all lens offset, zoom and focus positions. This lens system ensures that images adjust to optimize screen coverage. (Alignment can be maintained, especially in applications with moving screens or variable aspect ratios).
With almost 26 kg, it is a lightweight despite the brightness, so it can be wonderfully stacked. It also has the smallest case in its class. Furthermore he is so quiet that he will inspire every projector enthusiast!
