Almo Professional A/V Named Exclusive
National Distributor for Christie MicroTiles

Christie MicroTiles and Product Training Available in March;
Shown This Month in Almo Pro A/V Booth During DSE 2011

Philadelphia, PA — February 10, 2011 — Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing audiovisual distributor, today announced it has been named the exclusive national distributor for Christie® MicroTiles™. Christie MicroTiles, along with essential technical and installation training for the product, will be available from Almo Pro A/V beginning March 1, 2011. Christie MicroTiles will also be shown in a live digital signage application in the Almo booth (#1618) during Digital Signage Expo 2011, February 22-25.

“We have a growing number of partners who are using video walls for large-scale digital signage installations so Christie MicroTiles are ideal due to their high brightness and ability to capture an audience’s attention,? said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “Because installing Christie MicroTiles requires training, we will offer our partners an ongoing combination of educational opportunities so they can learn the best techniques and have the greatest potential for success with this product.?

“We needed a distributor that could do more than just provide the product,? said Mitchell Rosenberg, director of sales, Christie Visual Environments. “Almo Pro A/V has the strongest dealer education program in this industry and we are confident that installers and integrators who purchase from Almo will receive the proper training and technical assistance necessary to make the most of their large screen applications.?

Christie MicroTiles are designed for demanding indoor, high-ambient-light environments. They are ideal for applications ranging from architectural elements and out-of-home advertising to command and control video walls and event production. Christie MicroTiles use the strengths of both DLP® projection light-emitting diode (LED) technology to offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas with an unlimited number of superfine pixels.
Almo also offers Christie’s Pro A/V line of projection systems, which are designed for use in rental & staging, meeting rooms, conference rooms, houses of worship, auditoriums, broadcast studios, large and small audience events, retail advertising and more. Some of the projection systems available through Almo include the Christie Roadie HD+35K with 32,500 ANSI (35,000 center) lumens with a motorized lens mount, and the Christie M Series, which is ideal for partners entering the three-chip DLP market and looking for 16:9 performance.
