CYPRESS, Calif. - (January 16, 2018) - Christie®, a leader in creating and delivering the world's best visual and audio experiences, is demonstrating industry-leading display and processing technology at DistribuTECH 2018, from January 23-25 in booth 1237 in San Antonio, Texas. Christie will be showcasing control room solutions including Christie Phoenix®, Phoenix Quad-T and Phoenix EP; Christie Velvet® Apex Series LED tiles and Christie Aspect Series LCD panels.

“At Christie, we understand the need for reliable monitoring and access to critical information 24/7,” says John Hallman, director, Americas, technical sales and solutions, Christie. “Christie Phoenix processors and Christie video walls provide the utility and power sector with the advanced technology needed to monitor networks and power grids, and can be customized to meet any budget and space.”

Powerful processing solutions for control rooms

Christie Phoenix and Phoenix Quad-T will power the displays on the booth, illustrating how project designs can be streamlined to eliminate audiovisual distribution equipment. Christie Phoenix enables seamless access and control of audiovisual data from virtually anywhere through a single, robust system. Its comprehensive tools allow users - regardless of their location - to simultaneously view, listen to and interact with any source of information found in a control room environment.

The Christie Phoenix Quad-T is a stand-alone device that can be installed anywhere on a network to seamlessly expand a Phoenix system by adding additional inputs in a cost effective manner. Featuring four HDMI connectors that each support resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 pixels and four mini-USB ports for soft KVM control, the Phoenix Quad-T allows dispersed users to acquire high-quality, remote video and control signals over IP networks, enabling teams to work with the same data.

Display solutions for critical viewing environments

Christie Velvet Apex Series LED offers high-resolution, bright visuals ideal for 24/7 critical viewing environments. Velvet Apex Series features 100 percent front-access serviceability, remote and redundant power supply with a 16:9 aspect ratio cabinet in various pixel sizes, making them ideal for control room applications. Attendees to DistribuTECH will see Velvet Apex Series 1.2mm on display in a four by four configuration.

Christie Aspect LCD panels, including the high performance Extreme Series, will also be on the booth. A versatile platform available in bezel sizes from 13mm down to 1.7mm, Christie Aspect LCD panels facilitate tiled or stand-alone displays. Christie’s high performance Extreme Series, with an extremely narrow 1.7mm combined bezel, creates impressive, near-seamless video walls.
