At Christie, we give bright minds the tools to be truly creative and innovative. The results can be amazing!  

We keep raising the bar by consistently setting the standards and being first to market with some of the world’s most advanced projectors and complete systems displays. Christie is recognized as one of the most innovative visual technology companies in the world and offers careers that allow you to exceed your potential and collaborate with some of the brightest minds in the industry.

At Christie Digital, we specialize in large-scale projector displays. Our technology is used to projection map on everything from sports arenas and theme park attractions to buildings and statues, turning any surface into a canvas that can be painted with light!

Large location-based entertainment often requires the use of multi-projector blended displays, with each projector warping video content to the projection surface and blending away overlap zones. This results in a smooth, seamless display of light on any surface you can image.

In the Software Solutions Development Team, we strive to improve the audience experience through mapping and calibration techniques by developing our flagship product, Mystique.

Mystique is an extremely powerful tool capable of computing the geometric and illumination relationships within a projector-camera system. It is also capable of pushing warps and blends to our projectors and media servers. Check out some of our work.

Our team works collaboratively with other teams at Christie, including the Research and Development team to integrate new methods and technologies into our products.

What sorts of things do we work on daily? The whole pipeline!

  • Camera and projector device interfacing
  • Camera/Projector baseline (geometry) calculation
  • Point cloud generation
  • Point cloud and model fitting
  • Image warp and blend calculation
  • Colour correction and compensation
  • User interfacing
  • Camera and projector device simulation
  • Camera/Projector luminance and resolution analytics
  • 3D object manipulation
  • 3D view controls
  • NVIDIA Jetson platform

What languages do we use?

This opportunity is focused on the Mystique alignment software product. We use C++ for the entire Mystique product family, and as such C++ is our primary development language. We use OpenCV for image processing, Qt for the UI, and OpenGL for graphically intensive portions of the systems. New development in some cases may include node.js and other JavaScript frameworks.

What’s the team like?

We’re a tightknit group within the larger Christie family. We have a wide range of experience and academic foundations including Engineering, Math, and Computer Sciences, and actively learn from everyone. The team enjoys flexible work arrangements, and we have a mentoring program for all team members. We use an Agile development process. We often have team lunches and have an appreciation for good food and board games.
