Christie Technology Assists FishNet Security With High-Level Protection

Christie MicroTiles and Christie Projectors Work Superbly for Leading Information Security Solutions Provider

CYPRESS, Calif. – (Sept. 18, 2012) – Two Christie® MicroTiles® video walls and three Christie DHD800 1-chip DLP® projectors are helping keep watch at FishNet Security in Overland Park, Kan. FishNet Security is the largest information security solutions provider in North America, with clients in energy, financial services, government, healthcare, retail and other industry sectors.

FishNet Security, which serves most Fortune 500 companies, wanted its move into its new state-of-the-art headquarters earlier this year to include the best available technology, which is why Christie was chosen for many of the company’s visual technology needs.

“When we bring clients and guests through our facility, it’s important to show them our latest solutions,” said Max Dodge, vice president of Sales at FishNet Security. “For that reason we brought in top-quality vendors like Christie to help us achieve that goal.”

Christie MicroTiles Lobby Display Welcomes Visitors While Curved Christie MicroTiles Video Wall Monitors Global Threats On-Screen

A 10-unit wide by 6-unit high Christie MicroTiles array greets guests in the lobby of the new headquarters as they step off the elevator. Powered by Christie Jumpstart, the video wall displays dynamic, rich media content provided by FishNet Security’s in-house Multimedia Group. 

“This particular Christie MicroTiles array is flush with the wall and features vibrant graphics, which means people notice the content quickly,” said Justin Copeland, director of Multimedia at FishNet Security. “Guests immediately see their own names or those of the corporations they represent on the MicroTiles.”

In the company’s Security Operations Center (SOC), a 22-unit wide by 7-unit high curved Christie MicroTiles video wall supported by a frame created by RP Visual Solutions displays threat intelligence data, various monitoring tool dashboards, open work tickets, active service calls and other Java-based applications. 

“When there is a security concern or other issue, they project and share that information with their colleagues and supervisors,” Dodge added. “Everyone then analyzes it and the appropriate action is taken. There is also a constant security monitor globe displayed on the MicroTiles wall that tracks information security threats from around the world.”

Christie MicroTiles have built-in sensors that monitor each LED’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness and color continuously for the life of the display. Built with reliable solid-state components, each LED is rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness. Combining both DLP projection and LED technology, Christie MicroTiles offer super-fine resolution, substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than most conventional LCD and plasma flat panel technology.

Whether installed to perfectly represent the company brand or for mission-critical applications, Christie MicroTiles deliver 24/7 reliability and a low cost of ownership.

Three Christie DHD800 1-chip DLP Projectors Display on the Largest Corporate Touch Screen in the United States

FishNet Security’s Executive Briefing Center (EBC) Viewing Gallery features a custom-built interactive touch screen display provided by Float 4 Interactive. Measuring 33-feet across by 7-feet high, the smart glass technology enables HD presentations to be directed from three Christie DHD800 projectors suspended from the ceiling to avoid interfering with sightlines. A giant “navigation wheel” on the screen enables users to launch applications and display interactive content with the touch of a finger.

“The Christie DHD800 projectors work superbly in the high ambient light, which is both natural and artificial,” Copeland said. “It’s a 5760x1080 resolution picture, and we’re creating videos at this resolution for maximum impact.”

Suitable for fixed installs and live events, the Christie DHD800 offers full HD and high-brightness in a 1-chip DLP projector along with a user-changeable, twin-color-wheel system that provides the flexibility to tailor presentations to maximize high-brightness images and achieve superior-color reproduction. Ideal for 24/7 operation, the Christie DHD800 includes a lamp-interval feature that enables you to select the usage times between the dual-lamps for balanced lamp life.

“With their clean lines, minimal footprint and no visible hardware, the Christie MicroTiles fit the bill perfectly,” Dodge said. “Not only are the Christie MicroTiles video walls functional, they are also showpieces. No one leaves here without being in complete awe of the technology they see.”
