Christie MicroTiles ‘Speak’ as Creative Medium at Perimeter Institute

Digital Display Technology Allows for the Creativity of Architects to Realize Their Vision

World-class technology converges with world-class facilities at the Stephen Hawking Centre at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ont., Canada, where 84 Christie® MicroTiles® are visually communicating a range of scientific research, training and outreach messages for a variety of audiences – including some of the world’s brightest minds.

Located in the lobby, itself a mix of angles and multiple perspectives, the Christie MicroTiles array is assembled as an irregular hexagon, creating a dynamic media wall to welcome and inform all visitors.

“The video wall’s shape is arranged in a ‘V’ with a narrow base of three MicroTiles wide and works its way up to eight wide at the top of the array,” said Randy Pagnan, President, RP Visual Solutions (RPV). “Any MicroTiles array greater than five tiles high benefit greatly from a consolidated back frame, which is what RPV constructed; our adjustability and capability to align each MicroTile guarantees the tight seams of the video wall. MicroTiles allow the flexibility to provide that ‘architectural’ look Perimeter was seeking to achieve.”
