Christie launches Velvet LED videowall panels4 July 2014
Newly available is the Christie Velvet line of high-brightness LED tiled display panels.
Available in four different pixel pitches, the high-output Velvet tiles, which debuted at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas last month, are designed for indoor applications such as retail, casinos, museums, corporate lobbies and control-room environments, where 24/7/365 reliability is required. They can be integrated seamlessly to create large digital canvasses, and solutions can be configured according to customer requirements.
Christie Velvet panels feature a 1,200Hz refresh rate and 1,000 nits brightness. They have a wide viewing angle (160⁰) and are said to show darker blacks and exceptional high colour fidelity. The two largest pixel-pitch models (3mm and 4mm) have a front-serviceable design. (The other pitches are 1.875 mm and 2.5 mm.) The displays can be mounted in a variety of orientations, including curved, suspended from ceilings and structures or connected to each other to create a seamless array.
As part of the pre-sales process, Christie offers a quick budgetary design and quote. The Velvet tiles can form part of a turnkey solution with the company’s image processing and content management software.
“LED videowalls have become a viable technology for many indoor applications,” said Richard Heslett, senior product manager, Christie. “With their reliable 24/7 operation, fine pixels, and long life, many businesses are turning to LEDs; however, obtaining them to customer specifications has been a challenge for integrators and end users. Christie Velvet LED displays are manufactured to the highest quality standards, and are backed by the excellent pre- and post-service and support that Christie is known for around the world.”
The Christie Velvet LED line, with two-year warranty, is available now.
