Following two years of R&D Christie has launched its new digital display technology, MicroTiles. Christie MicroTiles are modular display tiles that can be stacked and clustered like building blocks to create display walls of any shape or scale, using a new optical design that produces high levels of brightness, contrast and colour reproduction.
The LED- and DLP-based system is designed for long commercial use in public areas, with no lamps or other consumable parts to replace. The LED light engine is rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness usage, or nearly 7.5 years of continuous operation.
With a screen size of 16 inches (408mm) wide x 12 inches (306mm) high, the tiles also feature a shallow depth of only 10 inches (260mm), require just 2 inches (50mm) of minimal clearance for rear ventilation, and are fully serviced from the front. Christie engineers designed the MicroTiles to be ‘self-aware’ – meaning colour calibration is automatically completed by the built in sensors.
MicroTiles can be stacked and arranged to create visual images that fit within the physical constraints or opportunities of a building. And walls of tiles are controlled by a simple unit that processes the signal from the most popular digital signage and media players.
Christie has also announced the launch of the LX505 and LX605, new 3LCD projectors targeted at the pro A/V market. Both feature a four corner geometry correction function called 3D Keystone technology. In addition to this, they both include motorised lens shift, focus and zoom, and come with a suite of lens options.
The optional CCM-LX network module allows users to upgrade them to feature network monitoring, control and display. The LX505 is a 5000 lumens model, and the LX605 produces 6000 lumens. Both projectors deliver XGA resolution and feature a 13,000 hour, maintenance free AutoFilter function.
