Viewers expect a seamless flow of programming from cable and broadcast television networks. Dead air is displeasing to the viewer and it's the ultimate – expensive – sin for the broadcaster.
Networks use video walls in broadcast control rooms to produce programming, monitor and control television broadcasts, and combine numerous feeds – live, real-time content, file footage, images and explanatory graphics. Constant monitoring of all this information and activity requires video wall solutions that are highly reliable and flexible.
Highly reliable video wall technology for broadcast control rooms
Broadcast environments are 24/7, 365-day operations. Christie's industry-leading reliability rating for our lamp-based projector systems, and the zero-maintenance design of Christie Entero™ LED greatly reduce the risk of downtime or content disruption on your production control wall.
Christie's TVC video wall controllers simplify the process for configuring the display of numerous feeds to your master control video wall, letting your collaborative display wall act like a large, ultra high-resolution desktop.
