Products on Display
A Christie MicroTiles tower will display striking images. Winner of 18 industry awards, Christie MicroTiles are a flexible, high-resolution modular design technology and are installed in a variety of settings including the London Stock Exchange, Church History Museum and Seoul’s Incheon International Airport. Built on DLP technology, MicroTiles are designed for premium image quality in demanding indoor, high ambient light environments.

New for 2012, Christie is presenting multiple display solutions using its newest HD and 2K LCD platforms as well as showcasing its Christie J Series Xenon 3-chip DLP platform, which will display vivid images onto a 30-foot wide screen.

The Christie Spyder X20 multi-image video processor will control and manage the displays – including the stereoscopic 3D demonstrations. Also featured is the Christie Vista URS. This all-in-one matrix switcher accepts numerous sources in any format (from analog composite to digital 4K) and seamlessly routes its sources to any of eight user-configurable outputs, each configurable for all analog or digital output formats.   

Also on display is the new Christie Roadster HD14-J, which will be showing images in portrait orientation. Launched in September 2011, the Christie J Series is earning praise for its embedded Christie Twist that enables warping and blending of multiple curved images faster and easier than through traditional, manual methods  – without needing to purchase additional electronics cards.

Designed for multi-panel displays, Christie’s new FHD551-X 55-inch flat panel LCD will also be featured. To fulfill the need to interface with IT systems, Christie is demonstrating its network solutions with all projection and multi-image systems connected to, and managed through, the IP network – including wireless control of all devices. Chrstie AutoStack – a camera-based, software driven solution, used for maintaining projector alignment in multiple blend and stacked designs – will function across the network, offering a solution that manages both flat and curved screen designs for fixed install and rental staging applications.
