Posted 11/7/2011

Canadian national broadcaster Global Television launched its Toronto morning news program on Oct. 11 with a Christie Spyder X20-1608 managing the content for 40 Christie® MicroTiles® and 11 LCD panels.

The Morning Show, airing in HD weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., is revitalizing morning news and marks the return to the airwaves of popular co-host Liza Fromer. Applied Electronics in Mississauga, Ontario, was the systems integrator for the Christie MicroTiles and Christie Spyder X20.

Visible from Bloor Street in the heart of Canada’s financial capital and located behind the anchor desk in the new glass-walled studio, the 4 high by 10 wide MicroTiles array captures the attention of both the studio audience and passers-by. Flanking the desk are two pillars housing 40-inch LCD panels while a 52-inch LCD panel is in the interview location. Rounding out the new social media area where apropos Twitter and Facebook feeds are displayed are street-facing LCD panels along with several vertically mounted LCD panels.
