Christie Demonstrates Extraordinary Experiences
Throughout its 90-year history, Christie’s work with its valued partners has resulted in some of the world’s most spectacular and innovative installations of display technology. Backed by industry leading processors and media players, Christie’s partners have splashed visual content onto airplanes, ice surfaces and basketball courts of professional and college sports teams, the largest building in Chicago, and India’s largest statue.
Christie’s content management and processing solutions provide a free flow of artistic expression in the broadcast industry, pro and college sports facilities, theme park attractions, and houses of worship, among many possible installations.
Christie Spyder is enhancing the fan experience for 11 NFL and 11 NBA franchises, with nearly a dozen NHL and NBA teams using Christie Pandoras Box media servers and Christie projectors.
“Christie is an end-to-end solution provider and that will be demonstrated at NAB 2019,” said Arlonna Seymour, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing, Christie. “We work collaboratively with our partners to ensure that we provide the right solution for the project, and then support our customers with ongoing education, and industry-leading service and warranties.”
Christie brings a suite of content management solutions to NAB
Attendees to NAB witnessed examples of the technology used to create experiences on the Christie booth including the newly launched Christie MicroTiles LED in a convex and concave ribbon-shaped video wall, along with a preview of Pandoras Box 10-bit colour depth video playback.
Christie Spyder X80 the tool trusted by professionals for the most demanding applications
The Christie Spyder X80, the multi-screen windowing processor, supports the creation of spectacular, never-before-seen visual experiences, and at NAB 2019, it processed and managed dynamic 4K/60 content on blended 4K projection displays. Suitable for broadcast and live events, and capable of managing 80 million pixels across multiple displays, Spyder X80 supports single-cable 4K 60Hz signals and processes them with very low latency.
Christie Terra uncompressed, zero-frame latency, artefact-free audiovisual content over 10G
Also on the booth and part of a complete Christie solution is Christie Terra, which delivers uncompressed and uncompromised AV processing: 4:4:4 quality maintained from source to display resulting in pixel-perfect, artefact-free, fluid and natural content. Terra’s zero-frame latency enables natural, real-time monitoring, communication and collaboration among users as well as simultaneous response and control of all networked devices. Thanks to its KVM functionality, endpoints can access and control AV sources using keyboard and mouse interfaces. Christie Terra solutions are easily expandable providing a flexible, inherently future-proofed system architecture.
Christie DS Series debuts
Christie also debuted the DS Series, a trio of 3LCD laser projectors that come with a five-year/15,000 hour warranty. With the option of HD or WUXGA resolutions, seven lens options including a 0.36:1 ultra-short throw lens option and brightness levels from 7500 to 9000 lumens, the Christie LWU755-DS, LHD878-DS, and LWU900 are an easy choice for those needing bright, reliable and cost effective laser projection solutions.
Other highlights included Christie Access Series panels, Christie Captiva ultra short throw projectors, a Christie Apex LED wall, and Christie Widget Designer.
