Inspire Series is the preferred choice of local churches

KITCHENER, On. – Christie® is pleased to share that its Inspire Series 1DLP® laser projectors have been widely installed in over 20 places of worship across Ontario. Specified and integrated by Christie partner Horizon Solutions, Inspire Series delivers features that places of worship require, including an unbeatable price-to-lumen ratio.

Established over 40 years ago, Horizon Solutions started by working almost exclusively with churches, and while their portfolio has expanded since to markets to include performance theatre, education, and corporate, they continue to work closely with the places of worship market throughout Ontario, Canada, and understand the unique requirements of this market. 

“Many churches are focused on utility – they use their projectors for sermon notes, song lyrics, and announcements, while others are looking for ultra-high definition video to augment their stage design” explains Carl Lukings, Horizon Solutions. “No matter the usage case, every church client is looking to balance quality, cost, and longevity in their projector purchase.”  As a result, they are looking for a projection solution that is bright, budget-friendly, and has a laser light source, so it’s low maintenance. Christie Inspire Series 1DLP projectors are the ideal solution. “Inspire Series meets this market’s primary concern: how many lumens you can get for your dollar.”

“The Inspire Series DWU960-iS specifically is a great projector for church theatres, where it’s used to project lyrics to hymns, for example,” adds Lukings. For many of Horizon’s clients, switching from their existing projector to an Inspire Series is an easy swap with a built-in HDBaseT input for digital video input over distance, and fixed, motorized zoom lenses with offset from the remote control.

“We’re thrilled that our Inspire Series projectors are making a mark in the places of worship market,” says Joe Mercier, sales manager, Christie. “They are a professional-grade choice for small to mid-sized environments at a very competitive price point.”

Christie Inspire Series 1DLP laser projectors are a family of fixed lens projectors that offer users WUXGA or 4K UHD resolution, 24/7 operation, IP5X dust-resistant optical engine, and whisper-quiet operation. With brightness ranging from 7,150 to 9,600 lumens, Inspire Series offers up to 20,000 hours of reliable, virtually maintenance-free operation.

“Inspire Series is a great combination of light output and a robust feature set balanced with cost,” says Lukings. It’s a winning combination that has struck a chord with Horizon Solutions’ clients.
