To welcome people into its newly dedicated Claudia Nance Rollins Building, Emory University/Rollins School of Public Health selected Christie® to design a striking display with its award-winning Christie® MicroTiles™. Once entering the spacious atrium located in the building’s lobby, faculty, students, staff and visitors can view a variety of news and information displayed on an 8 wide x 6 high MicroTiles array, creating a display 10 feet 8 inches wide x 6 feet 6 inches high, housed in a convex, wood-paneled enclosure.
“We wanted a beautiful banner to receive people into the school,? said Mark Conde, director of information services at the Atlanta-based school. “We examined traditional display technologies and didn’t want to worry about the interface between LCDs. We learned of Christie MicroTiles and were pleased that many of the characteristics of the traditional LCD – and its accompanying problems – weren’t issues with the MicroTiles.?
Christie MicroTiles have built-in sensors monitoring each LED’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness and color continuously for the life of the display. Built with reliable solid-state components, including LEDs rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness, no lamps or consumables need to be replaced for more than seven years.
“The only time the MicroTiles are off is weekends – unless there is an event going on,? said Conde. “We run a wide variety of content from Visix AxisTV to the MicroTiles to include campus bus service, lectures videos, school history, and student and faculty photography from around the world. We can also stream content onto the MicroTiles from events happening all over the school.?
Ambient lighting – both artificial and natural – presents challenges for any installation. However, Christie MicroTiles are designed for maximum image quality in demanding indoor, high ambient light environments.
“We get a fair amount of light coming through at certain times of day via a very large curved window,? concluded Conde. “It’s bright, but the MicroTiles do quite well under those conditions. I was a little bit nervous at first because MicroTiles is new technology but Christie allayed those fears. We got what we wanted with MicroTiles: a beautiful banner and a great first impression for visitors who enter through the building’s main lobby.?
