Christie 3D Environment Makes Digital Innovation a Reality

Posted 11/12/2010

There was cause to celebrate another landmark for The Communitech Hub today as the new innovative 3D HIVE from Christie Digital Systems Canada Inc. (Christie) was officially commissioned.

The equipment was installed in part thanks to $280,000 in funding provided by the Community Adjustment Fund of the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, through which $1 billion in funding is being provided across the country over two years to address short-term economic needs of communities impacted by the global recession.

“The Communitech Hub will foster the development of important new digital media products and is expected to create thousands of new jobs in Canada over the next five years,” said Peter Braid, MP Kitchener-Waterloo. “This investment will support entrepreneurship, create jobs and further strengthen this region’s reputation as a centre of innovation.”
