New Christie Phoenix EP extends Phoenix product family with powerful processing for flat panel displays

CYPRESS, Calif. – (September 8, 2016) – Christie®, a leader in creating and delivering the world's best visual and audio experiences, is expanding the Phoenix family of products with the launch of the Phoenix EP​ (Embedded Processor) at ASIS 2016.

A compact, highly scalable solution for managing content on single or multiple panels, the Phoenix EP installs directly into compatible Christie displays – which also provide power – and connects directly to a network using CATx cable. One Phoenix EP processes networked sources, decodes and manages audiovisual and data sources on up to two Christie flat panels. Phoenix EP streamlines system designs, and eliminates requirements for AV extension and distribution equipment.

“Phoenix EP and Christie flat panels make a great choice for customers looking for a powerful solution that is easy-to-install and cost-effective,” says Karl Johnson, senior product manager, Christie. “Phoenix EP uses zero installation space, and it simplifies an installation by using a network to transport all content. Christie Phoenix systems, including Phoenix, Phoenix EP and Phoenix Quad T​, streamlines project design, eliminating the need for audiovisual distribution and extension equipment. This simplifies the installation process and increases reliability.”

Phoenix EP is ideal for video walls, digital signage displays and AV distribution systems and will be available November 2016.
