Christie and Corning Showcasing Video Wall Custom Display Solution With Durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass Cover Solution at CES 2014
CES/LAS VEGAS - (January 7, 2014) - Christie's high performing, versatile ultra-narrow bezel LCD flat panels, with optically bonded Corning® Gorilla® Glass, will be on display at the Corning Incorporated booth (#11612) at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, January 7-10, 2014. Designed for tiled video wall installations, the Christie LCD flat panels, available in sizes 46 or 55 inches, deliver crisp, detailed images and high brightness with full HD resolution for retail environments, museums, universities, broadcast and monitoring applications such as control rooms and security and surveillance.
The 2-unit wide by 2-unit high Christie FHD461-X flat panels, customized with optically-clear Gorilla Glass, create an unprecedented level of durability for applications where interactivity and damage resistance are paramount. Corning's thin, lightweight chemically-strengthened glass solution retains the LCD flat panel's sleek, narrow-bezel design that empowers a wide variety of tiled video-wall applications. A variety of content will be shown to demonstrate the flat panels' dynamic visual capabilities as well as Corning Gorilla Glass' durable, scratch-resistant abilities.
"Corning Gorilla Glass provides an innovative solution for digital signage applications due to the thin profile and optical clarity of the glass, making it an ideal cover solution to pair with direct bonding," said David Loeber, business director of Corning Large Cover Glass. "Directly bonding Gorilla Glass to the LCD panel gives the display superior protection in high-traffic public spaces and it is ideal for touchscreen applications."
"We continue to work with Corning to offer custom solutions and are pleased to partner with them to display the flat panel and Gorilla Glass option at CES," said Sean James, vice president, Managed Services for Christie.
Recognized for its collaborative consulting and system design abilities, which also include installation, 24/7 remote monitoring, phone support, preventative maintenance and onsite emergency service of displays, Christie's Managed Services works with a national dealer network to offer bundling options and customized digital signage solutions to meet customers' goals.
