The Christie booth showcased a broad range of advanced technologies and solutions suitable for the oil and gas industry that not only offer outstanding performance, but are also affordable and backed by years of proven industry experience and technical know-how.

Visitors saw a demonstration of Christie MicroTiles presented in an array of six units wide by four units high, featuring Christie JumpStart content management solution, which makes it easy to put high resolution content such as video, graphics and applications, and position it onto a large digital display. Christie JumpStart is optimized to ‘plug and play’ with MicroTiles to set the right resolution.

Also on show was a Christie 65” LCD touch panel, targeted for multi-touch meeting room displays, laboratory electronic whiteboards or interactive digital signage. The LED edge-lit professional LCD display provides superior touchscreen performance, ProAV functionality and commercial-grade reliability in a sleek, easy-to-integrate package.

It integrates smoothly into the local area network for access to Internet and network services. and any content from devices connected to Brio Enterprise units can be shared across all the displays in the same collaborative session, regardless of geographical locations to remove technical barriers and get people connected fast.
