Christie may be best known for its projectors, but the company has announced four new flat panels to expand its growing range. The new range includes the Christie UHD654-X-HR 65in with Christie Terra that allows routing and scaling UHD sources at a much higher performance level than other competitive LCD video walls.
The new flat panel models promise ultra-narrow bezels, and thanks to their compatibility with Christie Terra, they should provide easy setup. Moreover, the UHD654-X-HR’s remote and redundant power supply extends the mission-critical capabilities to the video wall.
“With Christie Terra and the 65in 4K panel, the amount of bandwidth and the no compromises image performance we get out of Terra allows us to provide functionality for the increasing number of 4K sources,” said John Dixon, Senior Product Manager, Christie.
“The image integrity is maintained throughout the entire system. You can transfer high bandwidth content onto the video wall and then have the image displayed at the best performance level.”
Christie says that the UHD654-X-HR has many benefits for the integration and implementation of the product including fewer products integrators have to install, and fewer seams – which customers will appreciate. For end-users, the faster setup means less disruption and a lower total cost of ownership – especially with very large video walls – and better, uniform image performance.
Debuting at InfoComm 2019, the 65in UHD654-X-HR delivers 3840×2160 native resolution, advanced video wall electronics with modern connectivity, remote and redundant power supply option, and ultra-thin ADA compliant depth.
“For the last decade, the LCD video display market has been based on 46, 49, and 55-inch panels and there has been feedback from our customers that a larger size would be beneficial,” said Dixon.
New 98in Flat Panels
In addition to the new 65in model, Christie has also announced two 98in model. These include the Christie UHD982-P, which is a budget-friendly plug-and-play commercial display that can be installed in any boardroom, meeting room or lobby. It delivers 4K at 60Hz UHD resolution, 350 nits of typical brightness, and wireless, USB and Bluetooth content playback.
The OPS slot on the 98in models allow for tighter integration of signage players, video extension, and other supported devices, while also providing flexibility for future upgrades. Christie is also previewing a razor-narrow bezel panel with a combined bezel of just 0.88mm, as well as a high performance 98-inch flat panel.
“Be it 49, 55, 86, 98, or now the new 65-inch flat panel, whatever the size, Christie continues to deliver what customers want in LCD panels and video walls – beautiful, lifelike colours, reliability over the long-term, and the best service and warranty in the business,” Dixon concluded.
Both the Christie UHD654-X-R and Christie UHD982-P ship in the summer of 2019.
