Christie Takes Control at LandWarNet With Customizable Visual Display Solutions For Superior Monitoring, Surveillance And Command Centers

Full Range of High Performance DLP® and LCD Projection Displays at Booth #1612, August 23 - 25

LandWarNet/Tampa, Fla – (August 23, 2011) – Christie®, a global leader in visual display solutions, showcases a range of high performance digital projection and display solutions for both military and emergency operations centers applications at the 2011 LandWarNet Conference. Christie’s turnkey visual solutions include monitoring, surveillance and command center installations that provide instant access to real-time intelligence from a diversity of sources simultaneously, allowing for accurate and rapid processing of information for superior decision-making and leadership at all levels of government. 

Christie’s visual solutions include the award-winning Christie® MicroTiles®.  Called the new “digital canvas,” MicroTiles are modular display systems built on long-life, high performance DLP® and LED platforms.  Christie will also feature the Christie Entero® video display cubes, the world’s first LED-based SXGA+ and WUXGA resolution projection display system.  All Christie solutions offer proven reliability to address the challenges of today’s simulation and training, classroom, prototyping and convergence simulation environments.  They feature 24/7 reliability and low maintenance – backed by expert technical support that is the hallmark of Christie products and services.

“Whatever your vision, from small briefing rooms to complex command centers and everything in between, Christie delivers the best visual display solutions – anywhere, every time,” said Kevin Barlow, senior director, Visual Environments at Christie.  “Our military and defense simulation solutions create an accurate, true-to-life simulated environment where personnel can safely train, practice and learn.  We are an industry leader in turnkey display systems and completely customized display solutions, built on proven technologies, engineering strength and expertise.”

Christie’s exhibits at booth # 1612 focus on monitoring/surveillance/command and control, as well as classroom training, and they include:

Christie MicroTiles.  Ideal for command/control and surveillance, the display will demonstrate MicroTiles’ handling of multiple high definition, standard definition and PC input sources simultaneously in a single pixel space.  Notable for their super fine pixel pitch of 0.567mm, a narrow 10" (260mm) depth and continuous automatic color and  brightness calibration, MicroTiles are viewable from any angle, with easy front access for quick service.  Display content for the 4 x 6 array is provided by Jupiter Systems, which is showcasing its revolutionary PixelNet® distributed display system.  With PixelNet, any information source can be shown in any size on any display, as a window on a single display, or as a window spanning multiple display devices.  It can also be scaled from a single input distributed to a single output to literally hundreds of inputs and outputs.

Christie DUW670-E and Christie LWU420. Ideal for classrooms, meeting rooms and auditoriums, the Christie DUW670-E 1-Chip DLP projector – featuring WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution and up to 6000 ANSI lumens of brightness – and the Christie LWU420 inorganic 3-LCD projector, with WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution and 4200 ANSI lumens, will both be on display.

Christie Entero™ LED 72” video wall display cubes. Will be on display at the Jupiter booth # 203.  The world’s first LED-based SXGA+ and WUXGA resolution projection display system, the Christie Entero LED is a 1-chip DLP® product line purpose-built for control room and video wall applications.  It features a “zero maintenance” design, with LEDs rated at more than 60,000 hours – almost seven years of dependable operation.  With no consumable components such as lamps, filters or color wheels to replace, the Christie Entero LED delivers the ultimate in uninterrupted, 24/7 performance for exceptional reliability and low cost of ownership.

A number of Christie MicroTiles will also be on display at the Technical Innovation booth # 1801 as well as the MicroTech booth # 1441.
