Christie empowered the Vietnamese business community with visual display expertise

HO CHI MINH, Vietnam – (November 7, 2012) – Christie®, through its partner, Vistron Vietnam, inspired the Vietnamese business community with its innovative display technologies at the “Emerging Trends in Multimedia Visual Solutions” seminar held at the New World Hotel today. The seminar integrates education, live demonstrations, and hands-on demonstrations, and is the first of its kind in Vietnam.

The high-profile seminar attracted system integrators, hoteliers, developers, business owners, representatives from the government bodies and professionals from the advertising, broadcasting and event industries.

The delegates received an in-depth knowledge of current and future trends in visual display technologies as well as the technical expertise to design and install high-end visual display system with engaging contents in a cost-effective manner. Case studies and videos of existing projects weaved into the presentation further enhanced their appreciation in a presentation made possible using a Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projector.

Captivating the delegates’ attention was the live demo of projection mapping using a Christie Roadster HD18K 3-chip DLP® projector and a full high-definition 3D projection with edge blending using a Christie Mirage HD10K-M 3-chip DLP® projector and a Christie Roadster HD10K-M 3-chip DLP® projector. Christie AutoStack™, a powerful yet cost-effective and easy-to-use image-blending solution that automatically calibrates and blends multiple projector displays with unsurpassed speed and accuracy, made the edge blending possible.

Christie MicroTiles®, a video wall solution that can be configured in any shape and size, stole the limelight at the seminar with its flexible configuration, superb brightness, high resolution and life-like colors. Throughout the day, the delegates had a clear overview of the day’s programme displayed on a Christie FHD551-X LCD flat panel, which is significantly thinner than conventional monitor, with LED backlighting and high pixel density offering high-definition resolution and energy efficiency.

The video contents displayed on all the projectors and MicroTiles for the live demo at the seminar were processed using Christie Spyder X20, a 20-megapixel bandwidth video processor with matrix switching and integrated source monitoring capability. A live demo of Christie Spyder X20 was also shown using Christie DHD670-E 1-chip DLP projector.

“As Vietnam continues to develop and expand its entertainment, government, corporate, public and education sectors as well as the relevant support facilities and construction, the AV systems used for the installations for modern development are of paramount importance,” said Clarence Ewe, Director, Vistron Pte Ltd. “Vistron and our major partner, Christie, are pleased to host the seminar to address the dynamic market of AV applications in Vietnam.”

“The audio-visual technology is growing in line with the infrastructure building in Vietnam in an unprecedented pace,” observed Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. “We at Christie are pleased to share our know-how with the Vietnamese to enhance the business environment.”
