A â€œZero Maintenanceâ€? Design System
Christie Digital has introduced the worldâ€™s first LED-based SXGA+ and WUXGA resolution projection display system, purpose built for control room and videowall applications. The new Christie Enteroâ„¢ LED is a pioneering, LED-illuminated, 1-chip DLPÂ® product line that features a â€œzero maintenanceâ€? design. The LEDs are rated at more than 50,000 hoursâ€“ over five years of dependable operation. With no consumable components such as lamps, filters or color wheels to replace, the Christie Entero LED delivers the ultimate in uninterrupted, 24/7 performance for exceptional reliability and low cost of ownership.
Utilizing the new generation of solid state LED technology, the Christie Entero LED projection system sets new standards in control rooms with extremely long life. Since LEDs retain their color spectral characteristics longer, images remain vivid and sharp through years of operation. LEDs also provide more accurate color matching and a wider range of brightness control and adjustments. In addition, the red, green and blue LEDs can be sequenced at higher rates than those of a mechanical color wheel, keeping any visible artifacts to a minimum.
Christie Entero LED projection units feature built-in Christie LiteLOCâ„¢ and Christie ColorLOCâ„¢ for automatic, independent brightness and color management. They also feature Christie ArrayLOCâ„¢, an innovative technology that automatically matches color and brightness levels for every cube, across the entire display wall, on a continuous basis. The result is the perfect control room solution for videowalls of any size, without the need for constant maintenance and adjustments which disrupt operation and lead to unproductive downtime.
â€œThe new Christie Entero line of LED-based rear projection modules has no equal in the industry for long life and dependability. They are as close to â€˜worry freeâ€™ as you can get in a videowall display solution,â€? remarked Jim Gavloski, director of product management at Christie. â€œIt marks a major new development in reliable, high-performance videowall solutions that are easier to maintain and more economical to operate.â€?
With 600 ANSI lumens of brightness, the Christie Entero LED projection engine is capable of illuminating Christieâ€™s 50â€?, 67â€? and 72â€? display cube platforms. In addition, these cube platforms feature superior cross prism optical screen technology for higher brightness and wider angles of view. Sealed optics eliminate the need for dust filters, while innovative â€œheat pipeâ€? cooling technology minimizes audible noise.
â€œChristie brings a depth of industry experience in designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining every facet of a control room and videowall display,â€? noted Gavloski. â€œWe provide the full range of solutions, from complete videowall and control room set-ups customized to the customersâ€™ precise specifications, to the skillful retrofitting of nearly any videowall system in settings where downtime is not an option.â€?
Christie control room solutions are found at such iconic sites as the NASDAQ OMX MarketSite videowall (the â€œfaceâ€? of the worldâ€™s largest electronic stock exchange) to the massive AT&T Global Network Operations Center, which features a record 141 Christie rear projection modules.
