Christie Phoenix and Christie Phoenix EP: Manage content securely

Christie Phoenix will be powering all displays on the booth, and now supports direct integration with Milestone Systems XProtect®, a leading open platform IP video management software (VMS). Christie Phoenix obtains H.264 camera data directly from the XProtect recording server, and automated video wall control is initiated from the XProtect event server.

Users benefit with improved reaction time, simplified control and reduced training.
