Christie’s world-leading digital projection and display technologies are omnipresent on the new Stratford campus – a campus designed to create the next generation of digital media graduates, jobs, content and companies. With innovative solutions that meet the needs of this campus, Christie products will unleash the creative minds of university students and establish an incubator that affords leading researchers and businesses the opportunity to drive new ideas for commercialization. “Christie’s technology will showcase our students’ content work, highlight creativity and provide a unique canvas for complex and detailed digital media research, visualization and commercialization,” said Ginny Dybenko, executive director of the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus. . Christie MicroTiles - A Towering Presence As the atrium’s commanding centerpiece, the built-in 5 units wide by 30 units high (6.5 feet wide by 30 feet high), digital video wall incorporates 150 award-winning Christie® MicroTiles®. These eye-catching, digital building blocks enable architects and integrators to incorporate stunning video into their designs and builds. Combining the strengths of both DLP® and LED technology, MicroTiles can reproduce 115 percent of the NTSC color gamut, exceeding typical LCD flat panels by more than 50 percent. Each display unit automatically detects its neighbours, and self-calibrates for color and brightness to optimize the overall presentation. To keep the massive three-storey installation secured to the wall, rp Visuals Solutions, working with Christie’s Research and Innovation group designed and installed a rear-mounting bracket with steel-support beams. Toronto’s Westbury National Show Systems project managed the installation on behalf of the University of Waterloo.
