DOWNLOAD: SCHEMATICS & MINIMUM CLEARANCES

Pure laser. Pure performance. Pure excellence.

The Christie® Griffyn™ HC pure RGB laser projector. A technological marvel combining Christie’s superior electronics, our proprietary RGB laser illumination architecture with integrated liquid cooling, a sealed optical path for reliable illumination performance, plus revolutionary high contrast technologies, producing unrivaled video performance that will both astonish and impress you.

Ready to illuminate any surface with 15,000 lumens while operating at only 33 dBA / 36 dBA at full light output thanks to a self-contained liquid cooling system.

Design excellence.
Talk about engineering expertise: this compact and powerful all-in-one, omnidirectional projector is our first to offer our new TruLife+ electronics platform with all-in-one connectivity, eliminating the hassle of removable option cards. It also includes our new digital convergence that you can adjust via remote control for easy picture-perfect alignment. The Griffyn HC raises the bar in RGB pure laser projection performance.

Spectacular visuals
Astounding color performance, achieving >96% of the Rec. 2020 color space; more than twice the color of Rec. 709 and 50% more than DCI-P3, yielding breathtaking, more realistic color unlike what most people will have ever experienced before.

Groundbreaking 10,000:1 native sequential ON/OFF contrast, previously unheard of with 4K 3-Chip DLP, coupled with 1,100:1 ANSI contrast, for superior contrast and blacks.

No laser speckle thanks to the inclusion of pure RGB laser diodes of a wide array of multiple different wavelengths.

High frame rate (HFR) capability to achieve 120Hz at 4K resolution or up to 480Hz with HD.

Ready to transport your audience to colorful new worlds, the Griffyn HC not only raises the bar for RGB pure laser projection video performance but soars above it and is bested only by the Christie Eclipse 6DLP RGB Laser Projection System.

And here's here is my in-depth analysis of the full range contrast performance of the Christie Griffyn HC: 🙂





The Christie Griffyn HC crosses over the Sony GTZ380 at only 0.4% ADL.

Literally the entire contrast range 0.4% ADL - 50% ADL the Christie Griffyn HC has superior contrast performance as compared with the Sony GTZ380.

HC = blocking chip like the Eclipse or a contrast tuned Griffyn? Anyhow, it´s good to see things are starting to move forward for projection, albeit in the (ultra) high-end segment for now...

As Sgt Schultz says "I know nothing". I await Nigel's public disclosure of what I anticipate will be the most amazing front projector for home theater - only "eclipsed" by The Eclipse!

In what price range is the Griffin ? Close to the Sony GTZ380?
Also if someone dont need that much light output but really likes all what the Griffin offers is there a version with less lumens or can the lumens output be reduced ?

The light output will drastically drop once its tuned for more contrast. I’m expecting it to be in the 15k range.

Even if it does lower it in half(15K), since it is a RGB laser, it only drops to 80% at 30,000 hours. So hopefully this projector would be a theater for 10 years or more

The Christie Griffin 4k32-RGB came out last June, with a msrp I believe of about $110k plus another $10k plus for the lens. The HC model apparently is a modified version with the lumens tuned down and the contrast hopefully much improved, as discussed a tad in the past months on this forum and also the DCI Forum. Historically, when a commercial projector is modified some for consumer home theater purposes (Runco, Wolf, Vidikron), the home theater model is more expensive.

I didn't realize that. WOW! Our Sony and JVC lasers drop 50% at 20,000 hours.

With theaters closed Christie had to do something. Lets hope the the price is not out of reach. If they keep it low enough it could be a game changer.
Now that the pictures are posted I am betting it will still be very expensive.

Please post a Drawing of this Baby with Dimensions.
Especially interested to know the offset of the lens from the center = dimensions.
