Lighting & Sound International reported on Friday Christie Digital’s first sales in EMEA to the event staging community of MicroTiles.
Russian company Big Screen Service put in an order for 108 MicroTiles and in Portugal, Christie partner, Europalco, ordered 100 MicroTiles as well as a demonstration kit of a further 25.
Eugene Marinichev, BSS’s technical director, told L&SI “Our industry relies on products and display solutions that can be easily set-up, deliver impact, and broken down quickly to be shipped on to the next job. Our business model, costs and profits are directly affected by this. So when a solution like MicroTiles comes along, we see a great opportunity. Here is a solution that has all these characteristics and is ultimately reconfigurable permitting it to be used again and again in fresh and exciting ways.”
Europalco creates live scenographies in theatres, large trade shows and other big events.
