Christie Powers up Video Wall Displays With Launch of New Christie Entero HB Display Cubes –The Brightest LED Projectors For Control Room Use With World’s First Wi-Fi Control Capabilities

Significantly Brighter, Higher Contrast, Improved Color and Wireless Networking Control for Truly Simplified Installation

CYPRESS, Calif  – (November 29, 2012) – Christie® gave notice that it is  driving the future of control rooms with the introduction of its new Christie Entero HB video wall display cubes, based on cutting-edge LED technology with over 1000 lumens capability in illumination and wireless networking capabilities – the first in the world to do so.  The system also includes proprietary third generation ArraySync auto-color and brightness LED video wall management, and improved tiling and scaling capabilities for the perfect video wall display in every application. Backed by more than 30 years in the video wall display market, Christie’s modular display systems “go big” with cubes that feature screen sizes from 50 inches to 80 inches. 

The new Christie Entero HB display solutions offer exceptional ease of installation in a wide variety of cube sizes.  It’s a purpose-built, continuously self-managed system that delivers exceptional levels of reliability, flexibility and functionality for utilities, government, security and surveillance, and public and emergency services – all with lower power consumption and lower cost of ownership.

“Christie’s new Entero HB series of video wall displays are designed for 24/7 environments, built on a entirely new platform that offers the highest performance in the market today, and the promise of new capabilities in the future with simple software upgrades and room for expansion,” noted John Stark, senior director, Collaborative Visual Solutions, Christie.  “With abundant size and resolution options, it is a highly versatile display solution that meets the needs of end-users in the most demanding environments.  Most importantly, they are backed by Christie’s global reputation for quality, unmatched service, and superior customer support.”

Christie’s new Entero HB series is based on the most advanced DLP®, LED and image processing technology – all proven technologies for long life with minimal maintenance requirements.  With Wi-Fi capability – an industry first – as well as the traditional control options, end-users are always “in control,” whether using the full-function IR remote keypad, wireless devices or a standard PC.  The series features intelligent, “hands’ off” self-monitoring, 12-bit RGB color sensing and monitoring, as well as endless flexibility, from screen size to native resolutions to pixel density options – for the most customizable video wall display solutions in the widest range of environments.

“In an ever-more demanding world of control rooms where video display walls are ‘too critical to fail,’ Christie’s integrated solutions deliver a flawless performance every time,” said Stark.  “Our solutions start with proven solid state technology and a true zero-maintenance design, to which we’ve added a new optical platform, newly designed high performance lens, all new electronics, as well as Christie proprietary circuitry and firmware design. It all translates to high resolution displays with 24/7 reliability, lower power consumption and better light efficiency, quieter operation, and intelligent, automatic color management that go the distance. In short, Christie is the one-stop answer to all of a customer’s visual display needs.”
