Christie Technology Brought Audiences Inside the Brain at California Institute of Technology’s TEDxCaltech 2013

Christie® technology took audiences inside the human brain at TEDxCaltech 2013 with its award-winning projection display solutions under the show’s theme, “The Brain.” Digital artist Jon 9, owner of Holonyne Corporation, produced immersive and stimulating backdrops and content related to the brain experts’ presentations that made the audience feel they were “inside” the brain of the conference itself. He also provided improvisational video mixing as accompaniment to musical performers David Torn and Moira Smiley.

Christie solutions included the Christie HD10K-M and Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projectors, as well as the multiple award-winning Christie® MicroTiles®, all controlled by the Christie Spyder video processor. Christie MicroTiles were featured on-stage as a free-standing “brick” configuration, its content synchronized with the projected images on three screens behind the performers, utilizing the curved walls of the auditorium to provide a fully immersive experience.

“Throughout my long career in the display industry, I have always looked up to Christie as a market leader that combines technical innovation with robust engineering and an expansive line of products,” said Jon 9. “I was extremely happy to be working with them on this project.”

Jon 9 said he is very grateful for the support from Christie. “Christie enabled us to bring professional display technology into the academic arena at a level that demonstrated the effectiveness of immersive, interactive digital environments within a scientific conference setting. By combining Christie’s high-powered 10K and 20K projectors with an on-stage MicroTiles video wall, and with the flexibility and power of the Christie Spyder, we created an environment that was both highly functional and visually stunning.”

Dr. Michael Roukes, Robert M. Abbey Professor of Physics, Applied Physics, and Bioengineering, and co-director of the Kavli Nanoscience Institute at Caltech, who was co-organizer of the event, added, “We were very pleased to have Christie as a sponsor of TEDxCaltech. Their visual display products produced absolutely gorgeous visualizations and were vital to helping us provide a fully immersive experience for our audiences.”

Recognized worldwide for its exceptional programs, the Caltech faculty, members of which spoke at the event, have won hundreds of awards over the years, including multiple Nobel Prizes as well as medals of science and technologies.
