The New Digital Canvas for Digital Signage and Video Walls

Taking video wall display technology to a new level, Christie MicroTiles are built on proven DLP technology and specifically designed for maximum image quality in demanding indoor, high ambient light environments.

Christie MicroTiles™ Display Wall System

Overview

 

Christie MicroTiles™ provide the capability to capture your audience’s attention – your way, just as you envisioned it, without having to worry if there is a technology out there worthy of displaying your content. Uniting spectacular colours, superior image quality and modular flexibility like no other visual solution can; MicroTiles are designed to meet your needs.

Taking display technology to a new level, Christie MicroTiles are built on proven DLP® technology and specifically designed for maximum image quality in demanding indoor, high ambient light environments. Christie MicroTiles are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including architectural elements, out-of-home advertising, command and control video walls, and event production.

Leveraging the strengths of both DLP projection and Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images and a much wider colour palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas with an unlimited number of super-fine pixels.

 

  • Lightweight and shallow rear projection modules can be scaled to any size, shape and orientation, forming a digital canvas with minimal 1mm seams.
  • Our radio frequency remote control can be used to navigate menu commands on the On-Screen Display from up to 100m (328ft) away.
  • To play video or data on the tiles, simply connect a PC or other media player to the ECU using the single-link DVI connection provided. If your content exceeds the limit for DVI (i.e. approximately WUXGA at 60Hz), simply increase the number of ECUs connected to the display.
  • With its’ “building block” format and small footprint, Christie MicroTiles gives you design freedom to specify and install a digital media display that fits any commercial or public space. With a depth of only 260mm (10.2"), and weighing only 20lbs (9.4kg) MicroTiles fit your environment.

 

Features That Matter

MicroTiles™ provide the capability to capture your audience’s attention – your way, just as you envisioned it, without having to worry if there is a technology out there worthy of displaying your content. Uniting spectacular colours, superior image quality and modular flexibility like no other visual solution can; MicroTiles are designed to meet your needs.

When colour Matters

Christie MicroTiles offer you colour reproduction capability that is a full 115% of the NTSC colour gamut and exceeds standard LCD flat panels by over 50%. When you need a specific red, it delivers that red; brown – no longer a challenge. Maintain creative intent, your brand integrity and your vision by utilizing Christie MicroTiles.

Higher Resolution

In this pixel powerhouse, you get 70x more pixels than the most popular 4mm surface-mount display LEDs. Your logo will never look blurred. Your art will always look flawless. Your geographical content will never be misleading. And your message will be seen.

Any shape, Any Size

Limited only by your imagination, MicroTiles can be configured in any shape and any size. See your ideas come to life, wherever, whenever and however you want.

Snap, Lock and Play

Lightweight, modular tiles lock together quickly and easily like building blocks. Sit back while the tiles automatically detect each other and display an image on the screen. Tear them down, reconfigure them and they’ll still automatically recognize each other.

Long Lasting Reliability

Reliable solid-state components, including LEDs rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness, means no lamps or consumables to replace for more than 7 years! With Christie MicroTiles, you can be assured your message will be displayed reliably and consistently, just as you envisioned.

Automatic colour and Brightness Matching

These visual building blocks have built-in sensors that monitor each LEDs performance, allowing the system to detect each other in the array, and automatically adjust brightness and colour during set-up and continuously over the life of your display.

No Pixel Left Behind

With the ultra-thin seam between tiles, you can be assured that all the information you need is visible, with no important content left behind.

Easy To Service

Each tile is 100% front accessible, allowing you to repair or replace any serviceable component in less than 15 minutes, without having to turn off or bring down any of the other tiles.

The Greener Choice

Christie is on the leading edge of greener solutions in this industry. That’s why we’ve created a product with no consumables. No consumables are a big deal in today’s environment. We’re RoHS compliant and have built-in eco-power consumption modes. MicroTiles are an ideal choice for LEED projects, and for any building where environmental standards must be met.
