Worldwide automated lighting and control manufacturer High End Systems becomes the latest partner to sell the Christie Digital Systems, Inc. line of high-end rental and staging projectors to its worldwide customer base.

“High End Systems entered the video markets three years ago with the launch of our digital lighting products,” states Jeff Pelzl, HES VP of Sales. “We have successfully integrated lighting and video technologies to offer integrated products that work like moving lights but offer the creative power and flexibility of video. With the addition of best-in-class projectors from Christie, High End now offers a complete line of control, lighting and video products that allow one-stop shopping.”

“We already have an OEM relationship and rely exclusively on Christie projectors in our DL1 and DL2 products,” adds Richard Belliveau, HES chief technology officer. “We have evaluated many product alternatives and are impressed with the quality that Christie builds into their projectors. Their Rental and Staging line of products are a perfect fit and we are happy to offer them.“

“Having High End Systems as an authorized reseller is exciting for us,” says Gary Fuller, Christie’s vice president, Business Products. “They have been a leading supplier of automated lighting products for more than 30 years and are responsible for many of the industry’s technical innovations during that period -- recently adding digital lighting products to that list.”

In a related development, HES also announced a special mounting system that enables its Catalyst Orbital Head to work with the Christie Roadster S+12K and Christie Roadster S+16K DLP® projectors. The Catalyst Orbital Head is available bundled with the line of Christie Roadster projectors.

HES offers phone system support for the Christie product line. For more information, contact an HES sales representative or call 1-512-836-2242.
