Christie Showcases Leading Display and Collaborative Solutions for Education at AETM Trade Show 2014

​​CAIRNS, Australia — (November 12, 2014) — Christie® is bringing its leading visual and collaborative solutions for the first time to the Association of Educational Technology Managers (AETM) 2014 Trade Show, which takes place at the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino at Cairns, Australia, from November 12 to 13.


The show lets audiovisual professionals experience how a wide range of new IP-based AV technologies, Internet-centric solutions and the changing landscape of video streaming, collaboration and conferencing can improve and add value to education institutions.

On display is the vibrant Christie FHD651-T 65-inch LCD touch panel, which is the perfect choice for multi-touch meeting room displays, classroom electronic whiteboards or interactive digital signage. The LED edge-lit professional LCD display provides superior touchscreen performance, ProAV functionality and commercial-grade reliability in a sleek, easy-to-integrate package. Featuring full HD resolution, a high contrast ratio of 4000:1 and backed by a three-year commercial warranty, the Christie FHD651-T can integrate beautifully, easily and economically into any space.

Seamlessly complementing these high performance LCD panels is the versatile Christie Brio Team+ integrated wireless collaboration system that supports the “Bring Your Own Device” or BYOD environment. The sleek “plug and play” unit makes it easy to wirelessly stream content onto displays from PCs, tablets or smartphones in venues such as classrooms and research labs. Christie Brio Team+ also enables users to add HD video sources to local meeting content, providing the advantage of displaying original video content at native resolutions through DVI-D wired video inputs.

Rounding out the attractive product showcase is a static display of the Christie DWU555-GS 1-chip DLP® projector featuring laser phosphor illumination and an astounding 20,000 hours of low-cost operation eliminates the need for lamp and filter replacements. Equipped with features including wireless connectivity and a full suite of lenses, the Christie DWU555-GS delivers the needed requirements for today’s demanding visual display projects and is suitable for campus boardrooms, auditoriums and classrooms.

“We are very pleased to participate in the AETM Trade Show for the first time to demonstrate how our latest visual and collaborative solutions can add value to audio-visual and educational technology managers and specialists who are the key decision makers and innovators,” said Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie Australia. “The various Christie products featured cater to different needs and budgets, and are ideal for use in educational institutions as they embrace the latest technologies for more effective learning and cooperation.”

Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific, added, “A number of educational institutions in Australia and the Asia Pacific region have increasingly deployed new technology to enhance learning, communication and content delivery. Thus, our involvement in the AETM Trade Show is timely. We are confident that our award-winning projection systems, HD flat panels, and collaborative tools can deliver the performance, dependability and value for the education sector.”
