Christie's Roadster S 16K projector is going to be used tonight at the Grammys. This is a 3-chip DLP beast that is capable of projecting a 16,000 ANSI lumen picture at 1400x1050. It has 10-bit video processing with a user selectable contrast ratio of 1600-2000:1 and sells for more then $50,000.
CBS is going to use a total of 18 of these projectors tonight; ten alone will be used under the stage so people can literally walk on the picture. The last eight are going to be used to form a 180-degree circular screen. The images will be spliced together using ChristieTWIST Pro image warping and edge-blending solution.
