Do you know when you don't need to worry about drawing the blackout shades and dimming the lights for projector use? When your projector cranks out 10,000 lumens, that's when. The Christie LX1000 is just such a beast, even though it looks to be a twin brother of the Sanyo PLC-XF71. For its part,

Although InfoComm 2008 has drawn to a close, there's still a few releases surfacing from the show. For whatever reason, Christie's introductions into the projector realm weren't noticed among all the others last week, but they're still worth mentioning. Up first is the pictured WXGA (1,280 x 800) L

What Christie's LW600 lacks in resolution (it's only WXGA, or 1,366 x 800) it most definitely makes up in brightness. Boasting 6,000 ANSI lumens (dual lamp), 2,000:1 contrast ratio and a trio of 1.22-inch inorganic LCDs, this projector could probably produce a visible image in your average sunroom.

It's not often that you need to phone a friend over in order to help you physically lift a projector for installation, but if you happen to place an order for Christie's newly announced CP2000-M, um, you may want to have some brawn nearby. At 95 frickin' pounds, this thing is hailed as \"the most co

Make no mistake, Christie knows a thing or two about what it takes to deliver top-notch results in the cinema, and apparently, the firm feels that it's ready to delve into the always interesting 3D arena. The 3D2P dual projection system relies on a pair of the firm's DLP projectors in order to deli

We've heard of Christie's projectors being used in grandiose scenarios, but the firm's latest should fit quite well in your average den. The HD405 is a single-clip DLP PJ that rocks a native 1080p (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, 4,100 ANSI lumens, 7,500:1 contrast ratio, 10-bit internal image processin
