June 8th, 2012
Christie, a world leader in control room technology solutions, is offering more choice for mission-critical monitoring of assets, activities and infrastructure with the introduction of the Christie Entero LED 70" video wall display cube and TVC-1700 video wall processor.
The Christie Entero LED 70" features a new and improved design, based on our proven LED platform, first introduced by Christie, and found today in control room environments worldwide. 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 provides 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 significantly reduces downtime due to recalibration requirements typically needed with other systems, and makes the system superbly scalable from small to large installations.
"Christie brings a history of innovation in the most demanding visual display environments, with more than 30 years experience providing state-of-the-art control room solutions for a broad range of industries, both in the public and private sectors, as well as the military and civilian environments, " noted John Stark, senior director of product management for Christie's Collaborative Visual Solutions (CVS). "Drawing upon our extensive network of dealers and integrators, combined with our experience working with end users, we bring a deep understanding of all the factors involved in developing effective digital display solutions for mission-critical monitoring applications."
"Christie is always our first choice for control room solutions because they are dedicated to helping their customers achieve success," commented Kevin Marah, systems integrator, National Security Technologies. "They are an ideal partner to bring in early in the process, because they look beyond the hardware to the whole system - and back their products with outstanding service not only over the telephone but in the field as well."
