Christie Creating Powerful Live Event Experience at LDI 2012

See Award-Winning Christie Nitro Solutions and Christie MicroTiles at Booth #2027

Christie is lighting up the LDI 2012 trade show from Oct. 19-21 with a range of integrated offerings to create the definitive rental staging experience. Designed to replicate a concert stage and inspire the imagination, the Christie booth features the entire Christie Nitro Solutions family of digital luminaires, two Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP projectors and the multiple award-winning Christie MicroTiles.


Award Winning Christie Nitro Solutions Take Center Stage
Taking the figurative center stage at the show is the award winning Christie Nitro Solutions - the Christie YK50, Christie YK100, and Christie YK200 - each with a Christie projector installed displaying bright, brilliant and changeable moving images. Designed for staging and event applications, Christie Nitro Solutions offer three yoke models and provide a platform to move and control a variety of Christie video projectors via DMX protocol - allowing integration of lighting equipment and video projectors easily with the same control console. These versatile yokes can be flown, rigged or set up at floor level, according to application needs.

Rigged on either side of the stage, two Christie YK50 dual-arm yokes have a Christie LX700, installed and in between is a Christie YK200 with a Christie HD20K-J installed.

The Christie YK50 is ideal for any small- to mid-size venue where space is limited or less brightness is needed, such as casinos, lobby displays, churches and planetariums. For larger rental staging applications, the Christie YK200 dual-arm yoke is designed for Christie Roadster 3-chip DLP models and was recently featured at Shark Week festivities. The brightest moving digital luminaire on the market, the Christie YK200 enables images between 12,000 to 20,000 ANSI lumens to be displayed on virtually any surface.

Near ground level at both stage left and right, is a Christie YK100 single-arm yoke containing an installed Christie WX10K-M projector displaying bright, moving images. Providing brightness levels from 5700 to 15,000 ANSI lumens, this flexible system includes an interchangeable head system enabling users to replace the video projector with another Christie projector - on the same yoke.

Filling the large curved screen backdrop with blended images are two Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors.

Located below the Christie YK100 display are two Christie MicroTiles arrays - each in 1-unit wide by 5-unit high configurations - while additional MicroTiles displays bracket the backdrop screen and run along the bottom in a ribbon format.

Displaying stunning visual performances, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images, a much broader color palette, and a virtually seamless canvas compared to conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays.

Two Christie Spyder X20 video processors are managing and controlling all content displayed in the booth as well as Pandoras Box servers through Christie's partnership with coolux Media Systems. Providing image content for Christie at LDI 2012 is Proyección de Ideas, based out of Santiago, Chile.
