Multitouch interactivity in an easy kit!

Designed in pieces that fit perfectly around Christie MicroTiles®, the Christie Interactivity Kit can be configured into 84 different sizes. This modular kit can accommodate practically any large-format display, from a 3x1 up to a 16x6  Christie MicroTiles array, or a 12 square meter video wall.

Setting up interactivity for large-format digital displays can be a custom design process that’s complex, expensive, slow and cumbersome. Sometimes the touch technology doesn’t offer the desired level of performance in terms of the number, accuracy or responsiveness of touch points.

The Christie Interactivity Kit changes all that. Complexity and reliability aren’t a concern anymore. Now you have the technology to create a unique and engaging interactive experience with a touchscreen, large-format display.

Breakthrough technology…out of the box

This easy-to-use, field-installable kit simply attaches around the perimeter of any large arrayed display and plugs into your computer’s USB port - without any need for drivers. No manual calibration of sensors or cameras is required.

Windows 7/8 automatically recognizes the Christie Interactivity Kit’s software as a multitouch device, making set up extra easy.

Using groundbreaking BaantoTM ShadowSenseTM technology the Christie Interactivity Kit lets multiple users interact simultaneously with a rectangular video wall, with the resolution and speed needed to support finger-based gestures such as flicking, pinching, rotating and scrolling, and reliable, accurate behavior you can count on.

Scalable solution

The Christie Interactivity Kit works on different-sized displays and scales to incorporate more and more touch points as the display grows. For example, a display 6 modules wide has 9 touches and a display 12 modules wide allows up to 18 touches.

The overall cost per square foot for the display decreases as the number of modules increases.
