Christie MicroTiles and Christie Flat Panels – Ideal for any large display
Christie MicroTiles, the world’s first fully-creative modular building blocks to create digital canvases of any size or shape fit seamlessly into any décor or room.

They self-calibrate and are designed for maximum image quality in high ambient light environments such as control rooms, broadcast sets, educational facilities and many more indoor applications.
The booth also features the Christie FHD552-X LCD flat panel. This 55-inch ultra-narrow bezel (only 3.5mm when tiled) flat panel display offers full HD resolution, high pixel density, and LED-backlit screen so images look sharp at any distance – all with energy-efficient operation and low cost of ownership.
