Visual technology company Christie Digital announced last week the introduction of two products meant to broaden its control room solution offerings.
The first of those two products is the Christie Entero LED 70” video wall display cube and TVC-1700 video wall processor.
The Christie Entero LED 70” features a new design based on the company’s own LED platform; owing to the use of solid state illumination, the Entero LED 70” features vivid, wide color gamut performance and there are no lamps to replace, no moving parts, and no consumables.
The system’s zero maintenance design is intended to provide exceptional reliability and a long life. It also features Christie ArrayLOC automatic brightness and color balancing technology that monitors and adjusts color and brightness levels across the video wall in real time. This is meant to reduce downtime due to recalibration requirements typically needed with other systems, and makes the system superbly scalable from small to large installations.
The second product that Christie is rolling out is its TVC-1700 Video Wall Processor, the latest generation of Christie video wall processors. The Christie TVC-1700 is designed to meet increasingly complex and diverse control room environments that depend on a wide variety of digital sources and devices. Based on Windows 7 and running on a 64 bit OS architecture, it also supports single and dual link DVI inputs as well as standard video inputs. Its PCIe bus architecture is perfectly suited for capturing and displaying high resolution, high frame rate content, while providing ample processing power to support multiple inputs and outputs simultaneously. It easily powers large arrays, with exceptional visual performance regardless of application.
The Christie Entero LED 70” HD rear projection system and TVC-1700 video wall processor are both said to be available starting this month.
In addition, to many business products, the company plans to showcase control room solution displays as follows: TVC-1700 controllers driving 70” HD Entero cubes and 50” SXGA+ Entero cubes, and the Christie Vista Spyder video processing powering the new 80” SXGA+ cubes, with high brightness engine prototypes, and 55” LCD flat panels.
