Christie® Phoenix® EP is a network distributed processor that installs directly into compatible Christie displays. It’s a compact, cost-effective and highly-scalable solution for managing content on distributed displays and data and surveillance oriented video wall systems.

Ideal for control rooms, information displays and digital signage systems, Phoenix EP provides effective processing for content such as maps, data screens, dashboard imagery, static messaging and surveillance cameras.

Offering powerful multi-source windowing features for Phoenix system sources, Quad-T and H.264 RTSP sources from IP cameras and AV encoders, Phoenix EP enables seamless access and control of audiovisual data from virtually anywhere across a network using a single, robust system.

Each Christie Phoenix EP connects directly to the network using Category cable, significantly lowering the costs associated with traditional dedicated AV distribution products. Featuring an easy-to-use interface and on-screen status, Phoenix EP streamlines workflow and tasks associated with integrating and managing AV systems by dramatically reducing cabling, rack space and installation complexity and costs.
