Christie MicroTiles, Christie Spyder X20
Recreating a special feeling
Visitors entering the London Stock Exchange (LSE) are greeted by two columns of Christie®MicroTiles® in a 5 x 1 configuration that’s portable right down to the power supply. The Exchange’s atrium houses two strips of Christie MicroTiles, consisting of 31 and 29 Christie MicroTiles respectively and an impressive video wall that uses 132 MicroTiles in a 12 x 11 array. The video wall, in unison with the other Christie MicroTiles arrays, streams a variety of content including live news and market data from CNBC.
Six Christie Spyder X20 processors manage the arrays and content, which comes from a variety of sources, including Scala Infochannel. A Crestron controller manages lighting, audio and live camera feeds, and orchestrates an automated opening and closing ceremony of the market. The LSE can also send live broadcast feeds to its in-house studio for forwarding to news channels.
Another 8 x 6 tile video wall on the balcony overlooks the atrium and can display the same content as the main video wall. On the ground level, there’s a mosaic of 46 Christie MicroTiles of different depths and heights, while outside the atrium, visitors are kept updated by four columns of Christie MicroTiles in a 4 x 2 array.
