Controllers and video processors

Content mobility — redefined

Video wall controllers and video processors make managing content and information across multiple screens easy. At Christie®, we are redefining how and where you access that data, who you share it with and how you display it. Christie offers a full range of video wall controllers for every type of display, so it’s easy to find one that fits your needs.

Christie Phoenix

Christie Phoenix benefitsChristie Phoenix is a network-distributed information management system designed specifically for control room applications. Simultaneously view, listen to and interact with any source of information found in a control room environment, from virtually anywhere.

Designed for a broad range of applications – from a single room to complex, multi-room, multi-location installations that can be utilized by one or thousands of users at the same time – Christie Phoenix features a modular system architecture and uses one or multiple hardware nodes to handle both inputs and outputs to encode, decode and display audiovisual data.

Christie Phoenix Quad-T

The Christie Phoenix Quad-T expands the capabilities of the Christie Phoenix system by providing additional 4K inputs, increasing your monitoring capability and control during the most demanding situations.

Built as stand-alone modules, the Christie Phoenix Quad-T is a plug-and-play unit that can be installed anywhere within your Christie Phoenix network to control and encode real-time information sources. You’ll have more flexibility and scalability to acquire additional high-quality, remote video and control signals over IP networks, giving your team more data at one time from multiple locations

Christie Spyder

The original version of Christie Spyder was for edge-blended widescreen, single and multiscreen applications, but the strength of the Spyder 200/300 series is its modularity. The 200/300 series comes in 22 models packaged as 2RU or 3RU units with varying I/O combinations up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs, as well as smaller I/O increments so you can build the system you need. All models in this series are compatible and configurable with each other. This modularity can make the 200/300 series more cost effective in configurations that don't match the Spyder X20 I/O structure.

Christie Spyder X20

The Christie Spyder X20 is the world's most powerful video processor and presentation switcher combined with the flexibility of a video matrix switcher that easily converts and routes any signal to any device or combination of display devices. You can drive multiple displays in any combination of edge-blended widescreen, single and multiscreen discreet applications, achieving higher brightness, enhanced image quality and improved resolution.
