Christie Captures Six Awards in Six Weeks

Christie Wins InfoComm GreenAV Award

Christie added six more awards to its trophy case during the months of May and June. The cache of recent awards demonstrates the industry’s preference for innovative and high quality products that are at the forefront of today’s technology.

Christie’s Large Venue Projectors recognized with three awards

Christie captured top spot in Pro AV magazine’s annual Brand Leader survey, winning the Large Venue Projector category for the second consecutive year. The magazine invites Pro AV integrators, installers, consultants and end-users to complete an exclusive online survey, asking them their brand preferences in 23 AV product categories. More than 250 AV professionals completed the survey with Christie defeating the competition by a wide margin.

The Christie Roadie HD+35K earned InfoComm’s Best Video Projector/High Lumen category award from New Bay Media’s Rental and Staging Systems magazine. Producing the brightest, highest resolution HD image on the market with 32,500 ANSI lumens, the HD+35K features Christie’s unique, flexible split-body design and separate switching lamp ballast. Its rear air exhaust hood provides improved stackability and a new motorized lens mount enables users to focus and adjust lens position using a remote control. With built-in body handles for handling and rigging, the user-friendly projector is built for frequent transport and quick set-up.

Mark Ouwerkerk, territory sales manager at Christie, accepted the third award for Christie’s large venue projectors. The Live Design Projector of the Year award was presented on May 24 for the Christie HD10K-M. The HD10K-M, with its expanded lens suite, is the most compact in its class and delivers 10,000 ANSI lumens for crisp and detailed images while using less power. Presented annually in New York City, the award winners are chosen by a panel of projection designers and programmers.

Christie MicroTiles captures awards in Europe and North America

Launched less than one year ago, Christie MicroTiles are proving to be the industry choice for innovative, scalable display technology. On May 17, Christie MicroTiles earned the prestigious Janus de l’Industrie Award from the French Institute of Design (Institut Francais du Design) – France’s coveted design label – for outstanding creative products in the field of industrial design. The revolutionary MicroTiles technology allows users to create virtually any display shape with a color range and brightness far exceeding conventional LCD and plasma.

Less than three weeks later, at InfoComm 2010, System Contractor News and InfoComm International presented Christie MicroTiles with the Most Innovative Video Display Product award. With no limit to the number of tiles in a display, the lightweight and compact MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas that locks together in seconds. With sales to broadcast, event production, rental/staging, large public venues, educational facilities and corporate environments, Christie MicroTiles have opened the door to designers, integrators and architects who require exceptional image quality for their client installations.

Company recognized with Green AV award

Christie was also recognized with the Green AV award at the inaugural 2010 InfoComm 100 conference, April 30 – May 1 in Dulles, Virginia. This is the second time the company has been recognized for its environmental initiatives; in early 2010, Christie was named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers by MediaCorp. Among its green accomplishments, Christie has achieved an 82 percent waste diversion rate at its Canadian manufacturing facility along with a 41 percent reduction in natural gas usage.
