Christie’s Visualization Displays at SEG Demonstrate Company’s Leading Technology Solutions For Oil, Energy And Mineral Industry

Projection Solutions Optimal for Visualizing Seismic Data in Exploration Fields

CYPRESS, Calif. – (Sept 18, 2013) – Christie®, a world leader in 3D visualization display technologies, will be visible in more ways than one at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists’ (SEG) International Exposition and 83rd Annual Meeting at the George R. Brown Convention Center, in Houston, Texas, Sept 22-27. A Gold Sponsor of the Society of High Performance Computing (SHPCP) Theater, Christie will also showcase innovative visualization displays well-suited for the oil, energy and mineral industry, such as the pristine, quad high definition Christie QuadHD84, with 3840 by 2160 resolution as well as the 70-inch Christie Entero™ HB video wall cube, the first high-brightness LED video wall cube with over 1100 lumens brightness capability.

 
 

“Oil and energy companies are recognizing the important roles that both collaboration and advanced visualization play in exploring and synthesizing seismic images and data. Christie’s solutions have been used by authorities around the world to better evaluate spatial relationships,” said Larry Paul, senior director of Technology and Visualization Solutions, at Christie.

During exhibition hours, a series of presentations will be accessible for attendees in the newly-built, 50-seat SHPCP Theater sponsored in part by Christie. Equipped with a brilliant high-resolution Christie Mirage 4K25 —the world’s only 4K resolution DLP projector capable of running at true 4K 120Hz input and output—the Theater’s screen will light up the room with HPC members’ technical presentation papers and products and services. Christie’s Larry Paul will present on the “Future Direction of Visualization Technologies” Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 11 a.m. and Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 10:30 a.m. in the SHPCP Theater.

Christie, in collaboration with Technical Innovation’s CriticalSpace Solutions (booth #3358), a leading provider of AV integration, collaborative communications and digital media technology, will exhibit state-of-the-art visualization solutions for the oil, energy and mineral industry, with their demonstration of sophisticated collaborative visualization and seismic data interpretation capabilities. Christie’s high-performance, high-brightness 70-inch Christie Entero™ HB video wall cubes, the first and only LED display to offer Wi-Fi enabled wireless control, will be used as part of a 2 by 2 visualization display, while the rugged and powerful Christie Spyder X20 video processing system drives the content.

As part of its showcase, HP (booth #2512) will display a Christie QuadHD84. With installation provided by Data Display, both Paradigm (booth #2842) and Baker Hughes (booth #2556) are showing the awarding-winning Christie MicroTiles®: the modular display technology that can be configured into nearly any shape and size to create a beautiful digital canvas. 

 SEG’s Exposition and Annual Meeting is the world's largest oil, energy and mineral exposition showcasing cutting-edge technology for use in exploration and associated industries, where thousands attend to learn and discover geophysical innovations and new earth science technologies.
