INFOCOMM/LAS VEGAS – (June 16, 2014) – Christie®, the trusted global leader in high quality visual and audio solutions, is expanding its line of high brightness tiled displays with the introduction of the Christie Velvet line of built-to-order, high resolution indoor LED panels. Seamless to integrate and available in various pixel pitches, Christie's LED tiles display stunning content that help businesses creatively connect their brand message to their audiences. Debuting at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas June 18-20, the brilliant LEDs are well-suited to various indoor applications such as retail, casinos, museums, corporate lobbies and control room environments, where 24/7/365 reliability is required.

"LED video walls have become a viable technology for many indoor applications," said Richard Heslett, senior product manager, Christie. "With their reliable 24/7 operation, fine pixels, and long life, many businesses are turning to LEDs, however, obtaining them to customer specifications has been a challenge for integrators and end users. Christie Velvet LED displays are manufactured to the highest quality standards, and are backed by the excellent pre-and post-service and support that Christie is known for around the world."
