Christie MicroTiles Creating Buzz at University of Iowa Carver-Hawkeye Arena

Christie® MicroTiles® are drawing rave reviews at the recently remodeled University of Iowa's Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The 15,500-seat arena is the home of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes men\'s and women\'s basketball teams, as well as the university\'s wrestling (winner of 23 NCAA championships - including 11 straight starting in 1975), men's and women's gymnastics, and volleyball teams.

Located in the main lobby of the new entrance, the 10 wide (13 feet 4 inches) by 7 high (7 feet) Christie MicroTiles array greets Hawkeye fans with commissioned video art, slideshows and graphics of upcoming events, and videos of current players and alumni of the college powerhouse.

"We collaborated with KJWW Engineering on this project and originally there was another brand of traditional LCD-type video wall that was supposed to go in there,\" said Nate Lawrence, vice president of operations, Electronic Communications Systems (ECS). "We saw the Christie MicroTiles and thought this renovation project would be a good application for them. ECS has done a lot of video walls and we were really excited to get this new technology in there."
