Christie launched three upgraded versions of its Twist technology at the recent LDI show in Las Vegas. The Twist solution delivers full image warping and advanced edge blending in Christie three-chip DLP projectors using powerful software that controls and edge-blends multiple curved images seamlessly on any surface.

Easier to use and with better, more precise pixel-to-pixel alignment, the upgraded product family includes three tiers of specialised software for different application requirements: Christie Twist, available as a free download from the company’s website; and Christie Twist Premium and Christie Twist Pro, paid upgrades that provide additional functionality for more complex projects.

Christie Twist and Christie Twist Premium suit applications including live theater and events, projection mapping, tradeshows, large classrooms, corporate boardrooms, museums, house of worship, casinos and entertainments facilities. For more intricate projects – including flight simulators, virtual caves and domes – Christie Twist Pro delivers unlimited arbitrary placement points for even greater accuracy. When purchasing Pro or Premium, customers can buy a dongle to attach to a PC running Twist software or license individual projectors and eliminate the need for a dongle.

“Christie has developed a more advanced Christie Twist family and added a new category with Christie Twist Premium. Each version is tailored to specific needs: from simple flat screen multi-projector warps and blends to highly multifaceted applications,” says product manager Joel St-Denis. “Whether the surface is cylindrical, curved, jagged, or any other non-flat shape or surface, Christie has the right Twist solution for the project.”

The technology also provides networked projector control by allowing users to launch a virtual remote from within the software with all the functionality of standard Infrared remotes.
