ISE/AMSTERDAM - (February 5, 2018) - The new Christie® Velvet® CorePlus LED video walls deliver unparalleled design flexibility for a value-priced LED video wall solution. Ranging in pixel pitches from 1.2 to 4.0 millimeters, the single architecture scales more easily to popular resolutions including 4K, is fully customizable with remote and on-board options, and can be both installed and serviced from either the front or back. Perfect for public spaces, casinos, theme parks, houses of worship, broadcast, control rooms, and conference rooms among many other applications, its direct mount system allows for a narrow installed depth of less than 100 millimeters, making it ADA-compliant.
Christie Velvet CorePlus is designed with a focus on flexibility and affordability while delivering a host of features normally found in more expensive LED. The on-board or remote power options for CorePlus increases installation possibilities while providing efficient heat management and redundancies for 24 x 7 operation. Christie Velvet CorePlus includes a direct mount system, making for quick and easy installation directly onto flat walls - eliminating the need for an additional mounting structure and thereby further reducing total system cost. Moreover, with the new E600 Controller, end users can easily scale to 4K 60Hz.
“Our customers no longer have to sacrifice key capabilities when purchasing a value-priced LED video wall,” said Ted Romanowitz, senior product manager, Christie. “When you choose Christie, we work with you every step of the way to leverage CorePlus’ incredible flexibility to map out a solution that will bring your vision to reality.
