The Adelaide Convention Centre has deployed the Christie Spyder X80 multi-screen windowing processor to enhance its in-house offering and ability to stage various events within its facilities.
The Spyder X80 unit at the Adelaide Convention Centre will be used across the entire complex for staging multiple events such as gala dinners, conferences and trade shows. With this acquisition, Adelaide Convention Centre becomes the first organisation in Australia to have the Spyder X80 fitted in its premises. It also complements the fleet of Christie projectors that the Adelaide Convention Centre has at its disposal, which includes several 3DLP systems comprising Christie Boxer 4K30, Boxer 2K20, and J Series models.
“The Spyder X80 is the perfect fit for our venue given its powerful processing capabilities and flexibility, as well as full compatibility with the various Christie 3DLP high-brightness projectors that are already deployed within the Centre,” said Matthew Stanton, technology and venue operations manager, Adelaide Convention Centre. “It offers many capabilities for different events and large scale experiences that help make display walls easy to set up and manage, while incorporating the latest standards and connectors. With an array of innovative features and benefits, I’m confident that the Spyder X80 will play an important role in fulfilling our display needs for the foreseeable future.”
Stanton added: “We made significant investment in our event technologies as part of our recent $397 million redevelopment. The addition of the Spyder X80 to our technology infrastructure further reinforces our market leadership and position as one of the world’s most modern and technologically advanced convention centres.”
Clark Williams, EVP content management and processing, Christie, commented: “The Spyder X80 is high performing, reliable, and the only processor built from the ground up to support 4K at 60Hz on every channel. We’re grateful that Adelaide Convention Centre has placed its trust in the Spyder X80 to deliver the most amazing visuals across multiple displays in its expanded premises. This is a clear testimony that our Spyder X80 is an instrumental piece in realising a ‘pixels everywhere’ vision and stands alone at the forefront as a solution for applications that require managing a massive volume of pixels from source to display with the highest level of performance, flexibility, and functionality available.”
