Christie AT GITEX 2010

Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

Christie Digital Systems is presenting an open-faced, integrated stand at GITEX 2010 which takes place in the Sheikh Saeed Halls at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre October 17-21.

Known as GITEX Technology Week, the show is celebrating 30 years of industry integration as one of the world’s most dynamic and influential ICT exhibitions.

Christie is showing three heavy hitters from its diverse portfolio, presenting the award winning MicroTiles displays in both column and array configurations, including a 3 x 8 wall as a centrepiece.

The company is also showing off its new DWU670-E 1-chip DLP widescreen projector. Suited to mid-to large-sized boardrooms, breakout rooms, churches and classrooms. Visitors can experience the exceptional brightness of the compact WUXGA, 6000 ANSI lumens projector – with its single- or twin-lamp options – via the 2066mm x 1125mm projection screen.

Finally, advanced image processing is shown under the control of Christie’s flagship Spyder X20, configured with 16 Inputs and 8 outputs. The Spyder X20 includes the matrix switching and integrated source monitoring functionality of a universal router and includes an intuitive and easy-to-use interface and unmatched 20 megapixel bandwidth feature.

Christie’s MicroTiles will also adopt a high profile away from the show booth. Having recently purchased 100 tiles, Dubai-based Eclipse Staging Services LLC has supplied a quantity to event agency HQ Creative for use on the Prime Minister’s Office stand at GITEX.

“With just a 1mm seam, we believe that this product supersedes ‘seamless’ plasma and has a better contrast,” says Mark Brown, Eclipse chairman. “In addition, it uses LED projection technology for longevity and offers true HD.”

Christie has experienced rapid growth in the GCC countries since setting up a base there three and a half years ago, and the company sees this as a platform for reaching further into the professional markets across the Middle East.
