New Christie FHD492-XV and FHD552-XV flat panels combine performance and 24/7 reliability in a premium value package

New Christie FHD-series LCD panels will be launched at ASIS 2016

The new Christie FHD492-XV and FHD552-XV LCD flat panels are versatile and rated for 24/7 use in the control rooms of government facilities, public utilities, security and surveillance, telecommunications, and transportation. The first of a new series, both panels provide the renowned quality Christie is famous for in a value-priced LCD display.


Both flat panels deliver impeccable images in flawless detail. With a combined 13-millimeter (6.5mm per side) bezel, the new series is perfect for control rooms using multiple images on multiple screens.

The panels can combine with Christie Phoenix EP, which is also launching at ASIS International September 12-15 in Orlando, Florida. Christie Phoenix EP is a network-distributed processor that installs directly into compatible Christie displays. It's a compact, cost-effective and highly scalable solution for managing content on video walls and distributed displays and is ideal for control room and other applications.

"The Christie FHD492-XV and FHD552-XV are a very affordable option in tiled video wall displays where bezel width isn't of primary importance," said Andy Clipsham, senior product manager, Christie. "They can not only be tiled in portrait or landscape mode, they can be used individually in spaces including lobbies, sports bars, retail establishments, family entertainment centers, and both arenas and stadiums."

Backed by Christie's industry-leading customer service and support, the Christie FHD492-XV and FHD552-XV both ship in November 2016 with a three-year parts and labor warranty.
