Do more, spend less and benefit from greater performance

The control room is no longer constrained to a single location. Christie® Phoenix® breaks through the physical walls of the control room to encompass a global workplace, providing flexible and cost-effective video wall and desktop integration.

Christie Phoenix enables seamless access and control of audiovisual data from virtually anywhere, through a single, robust system. Its comprehensive tools allows thousands of users to simultaneously view, listen to and interact with any source of information found in a control room environment, regardless of their location.

Consisting of at least one hardware node and powered by web-based management software, the Christie Phoenix system allows users in a variety of challenging environments to make faster, more accurate life-critical decisions with confidence.
