Christie Digital director of marketing Steve Capling discusses what's in store for InfoComm 2018.

It’s simple really, says Christie Digital director of marketing Steve Capling. When it comes to what the manufacturer will showcase at InfoComm 2018 he says, “We’re working hard on demonstrating powerful tools for powerful experiences.”

That is a lofty goal, but those familiar with Christie’s traditional tradeshow presence know that simply walking by its InfoComm booth is a powerful experience.

Those InfoComm 2018 attendees who visit Christie at its booth N706, Capling says, will experience “a comprehensive lineup of hardware, software and connectivity solutions that will really help streamline the pro AV experience.”

A highlight, he says, will be the North American debut of the Christie Velvet CorePlus LED video walls and its Velvet Apex Series, which was launched at ISE 2018.

More on CorePlus LED video walls:

The Velvet CorePlus LED video walls, according to Christie, offer unparalleled design flexibility for a value-priced LED video wall solution. The series ranges in pixel pitches from 1.2 to 4.0 millimeters.

The single architecture scales more easily to popular resolutions including 4K, is fully customizable with remote and on-board options, and can be both installed and serviced from either the front or back, according to Christie.

The video display maker describes the Velvet CorePlus LED video walls as perfect for:

  • Public spaces
  • Casinos
  • Theme parks
  • Houses of worship
  • Broadcast
  • Control rooms
  • Conference rooms

Christie Velvet CorePlus is designed with a focus on flexibility and affordability while delivering a host of features normally found in more expensive LED, according to Christie. The on-board or remote power options for CorePlus increases installation possibilities while providing efficient heat management and redundancies for 24 x 7 operation.

Christie Velvet CorePlus includes a direct mount system, making for quick and easy installation directly onto flat walls – eliminating the need for an additional mounting structure and thereby further reducing total system cost. Moreover, with the new E600 Controller, end users can easily scale to 4K 60Hz.
