  • Network distributed – uses standard IP network as AV transport and control
  • Content mobility – simultaneously view, listen to and interact with any source of information found in a control room environment
  • Collaboration – replicate and share content on many display walls and desktops, simultaneously across an organization, or the world
  • Scalable – one to hundreds of Christie Phoenix nodes, multiple display walls up to 128+ screens, multiple desktops and users
  • Secure control – Support for HDCP, H.264 encryption throughout with drag and drop simplicity
  • Simple and powerful –  easy to install and configure; encode, decode and display simultaneously, all from  one box

Christie Phoenix has comprehensive tools for one, or thousands of users to simultaneously view, listen to and interact with any source of information found in a control room environment from virtually anywhere through a single, robust system.  

The Christie Phoenix system consists of one or many Christie Phoenix hardware nodes as well as web-based management software connected through your Ethernet network.   It allows those in areas such as public utilities, government, security and surveillance, transportation and telecommunications to confidently make faster and more accurate life-critical decisions, even in the most challenging of environments.
