Christie MicroTiles

San Francisco Public Utilities Commission

With the goal of delivering a powerful, permanent public installation in the lobby of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission(SFPUC) headquarters, creative technology agency Obscura Digital and SFPUC personnel collaborated in the impressive design of a stunning interactive wall of Christie® MicroTiles®. “Our goal was an interactive educational experience that could excite both young and old alike,” says Tyrone Jue, Director of Communications for the SFPUC. “We wanted a flexible and innovative platform that could connect people to the past and future story of our water, power and sewer systems.”

Comprising a total of 160 Christie MicroTiles, the curved wall sits atop a superstructure pedestal custom fabricated by rp Visual Solutions and stretches 58’ long. Officially named the Digital Arts Panorama, the video wall is controlled by a custom content management program developed by the Obscura Digital team which allows the SFPUC communications department to upload and manage information on the wall effectively and efficiently.

“We chose Christie MicroTiles because we didn’t want to sacrifice resolution or be concerned about off-axis viewing and serviceability.”
Nathan Houchin
Technical Director at Obscura Digital
