Christie Technology Takes Visitors on Spectacular Coast to Coast Visual Journey

Christie® technology is taking people on an unforgettable journey across Canada – without flight delays, congested airports or jetlag. A spectacular new flight simulation ride called Fly Over® Canada launches guests into a thrilling immersive experience including the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rockies, cosmopolitan cities, the rugged East Coast and more via the Christie D4K35603-chip DLP® projector and images produced by Sherpas Cinema.

Christie Projectors are used in Fly Over Canada

Installed at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Fly Over Canada also features Uplift, a preshow presentation produced by the award winning Montreal-based Moment Factory using eight Christie DWU675-E 1-chip DLP® projectors.

Christie: The Brightest and the Best Choice
“As we built up the company we started talking to Christie about various aspects of this project. Moment Factory then specified Christie for the preshow projectors so that got us hooked up with the (Christie) DWU670-E projectors,” said Eric Sambell, director, construction &technology, Soaring Attractions.

“After considerable research by the technical and creative team at Soaring Attractions, the owner/operator of Fly Over Canada concluded that Christie was also the clear 4K projector choice for the main ride.

“We chose the Christie D4K3560 projector solution because we needed the brightness and intensity to light a 19-meter diameter surface area. Obviously we needed the brightest projector and as much resolution as we could get,” continued Sambell. “That meant a 4K solution but because it’s a motion ride we needed 60 hertz to avoid motion blur – which led us to the D4K3560.”

The Christie D4K3560 projector is part of the Christie TruLife™ electronics platform offering customers superior image and video quality for the most comfortable and realistic viewing experience.

Christie Steps up and does it Right
“The projector sits out on a perch, which made it a bit of challenge but the installation went smoothly and Christie made sure everything was perfect; they came through with everything right when we needed it. Everyone, from the Christie field application engineers to Geoff Chick (central and western regional sales manager, Canada), really stepped up and made things right.”

The show opened last summer and, according to Sambell, ran at capacity on weekends and well-exceeded expectations in the months that followed. He said people have returned up to ten times and the reaction from people of all ages has been overwhelmingly positive.

Christie DWU675-E1-chip DLP® projectors provide trusted performance, reliability and exceptional image quality. Ideal for small auditoriums, boardrooms, classrooms and houses of worship, the Christie DWU675-E delivers image blending and warping, stacking capabilities and precision color matching for use in either fixed or rental staging applications.

ELKHART, Indiana — HARMAN’s Crown Audio today announced it is expanding its DriveCore Install (DCi) Series amplifier range with the introduction of its DCi Network Display 8|600ND and 4|1250ND power amplifiers, featuring front-panel status displays and AVB (Audio Video Bridging) connectivity. The new eight- and four-channel DCi Network Display amplifiers will be the first professional audio amplifier to be certified by the AVnu Alliance. DCi Network Display amplifiers will deliver reliable audio performance and networked operation in AVB-based audio/video systems.

“Since their recent introduction our Crown DCi Series amplifiers have set a new standard for installed sound, and our new DCI Network Display amplifiers build upon this industry-leading performance by offering certifiable compatibility with AVB-based installations, along with easy setup and operation and unshakable reliability. Combining DriveCore technology with AVB represents another first from Crown as we continue to lead the way for professional amplifier innovation for the most demanding large-scale environments,” said Daniel Saenz, Business Segement Manager, Crown Audio.

Both DCi Network Display amplifiers feature a front-panel display and LED indicators that provide at-a-glance indication of key parameters. A large multifunction knob and push buttons enable instant access to control functions. The amplifiers are compatible with HARMAN’s HiQnet Audio Architect™ system setup and control software and utilize TCP/IP-based protocol in HiQnet for network monitoring and control.

The eight-channel DCi 8|600ND delivers 600W into 8 ohms (300, 600 and 300W into 16, 4 and 2 ohms) and the four-channel DCi 4|1250ND provides 1250W into 8, 4 or 2 ohms (625W into 16 ohms). Both amplifiers offer direct drive “constant voltage” capabilities for 70Vrms and 100Vrms amplification without the need for a step-up transformer, yielding higher audio quality in distributed audio applications with power outputs of 1250W and 600W respectively.

Like all Crown DCi Series amplifiers, the DCi 8|600ND and DCi 4|1250ND utilize HARMAN’s proprietary DriveCore amplifier IC chip for powerful, highly efficient operation from a compact form factor measuring just 2 RU high. The DriveCore chip combines the amplifier driver stage into the power output stage along with additional audio-signal functions, yet is about the size of a postage stamp. The DriveCore-based Class D, next-generation PWM design dramatically reduces size and power consumption and yields much more energy-efficient operation.

Both amplifiers provide a host of networking and control features to ensure reliable operation, including continuous load monitoring, comprehensive error reporting, pilot tone monitoring and programmable general purpose input/output (GPIO) ports. The DCi 8|600ND and DCi 4|1250ND offer extensive DSP capabilities such as LevelMAX™ limiters for the inputs and outputs, with thermal limiting, input and output delay, input and output EQ, built-in crossovers and a built-in signal generator.

The world premiere will be a star-studded extravaganza with the red carpet and audience featuring some of the film’s stars, other A-list celebrities, and nearly 1,500 additional viewers.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

20th Century Fox chose Digital Media Systems, its primary East Coast projection and sound team, to provide the technical support, integration, and installation for the film’s debut. A preferred Christie partner, Digital Media System’s long-standing relationship with Christie gave it complete confidence in installing Christie Solaria Series projectors to bring X-Men to life on the big screen with stunning 3D visuals.

“The River Pavilion presents a challenging layout for the event, as all of the equipment, including seats, projection, drapes, and sound systems, needed to be brought in to create as close to a theater auditorium experience as possible. In selecting the projection system, we knew we could count on Christie’s powerful technology to come through for us,” said Gregg Paliotta, president and owner of Digital Media Systems. “With the projection booth over 140 feet away from the screen, Christie Solaria projectors will light up the screen flawlessly with sharp, vivid 3D images to capture every action-packed minute.”

“We are pleased that Digital Media Systems trusted Christie to fully immerse the audience in the 3D world of the X-men,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global & corporate marketing, Christie. “Movie premieres are a great opportunity for Christie to showcase its superior digital cinema technology, and we are confident that our projectors will provide the reliability and flawless visual quality that is needed at such a high profile event.”

Christie MicroTiles and Christie Spyder X20 Promote Michigan State University’s Basketball Program

The Michigan State University Spartans are using Christie® MicroTiles® and a Christie Spyder X20 to promote its powerful men’s basketball program to potential recruits as well as current players and fans. Integrated Design Solutions (IDS) and BlueWater Technologies created the magnificent 30-foot wide by 5-foot tall Christie MicroTiles visual display wall in a corridor of the Berkowitz Athletic Complex, home of Spartans basketball.

With athletic recruiting a highly competitive endeavor, the Spartans wanted something extra to bring the best prospects to their program. The plan was to install a video wall – but not just any video wall – into the long, narrow corridor 20 feet above the basketball court leading into the athletic complex. LCD flat panels were the first choice but the school was concerned about the quality of the images that would show on the display – especially when viewed close up.

“There are several trophies at the end of the corridor, including two men’s NCAA championship trophies, but the college wanted to be able customize the experience for visitors. Coach Izzo and his staff are well known and respected and the school wanted a digital display system to highlight that and the successful history of the program. They wanted to show off what Michigan State does and can do for potential recruits,” said Dean Harris CTS, designer technology services, Integrated Design Solutions.

Christie MicroTiles at Michigan State

The school was also concerned about the larger bezels of flat panels interfering with the cohesiveness of the display they wanted. Familiar with Christie MicroTiles, Harris had some MicroTiles’ samples brought in.

“We took the MicroTiles demo out to the coaches, the athletic director and others at MSU,” explained Harris. “They said, ‘if we are going to do this, we have to have the right product so the content will be crystal-clear up close.’ The visuals on the MicroTiles are very sharp even when you stand just a few inches away from them. Everyone’s reaction was ‘Wow!’ We blew them away. It was the tiny seams, the clarity of the images, the fact that they are serviceable from the front – the MicroTiles just looked stunning and did exactly what they wanted – they were the right choice.”

Located two feet off the floor and fitted into the wall, the Christie MicroTiles video wall comprises 110 tiles in a 22-unit wide by 5-units tall array and – using a Christie-designed pedestal – seamlessly blends into the architecture.

“The MicroTiles wall is located in a dark and narrow entry corridor that leads to a brightly lit rotunda. One of our architects explained that ‘this corridor was designed to replicate the feeling of a student athlete walking through the player’s tunnel into an arena. The vivid content on the MicroTiles wall draws your attention as you walk down the corridor that ends at a large trophy display in the rotunda.’ It is rather impressive,” said Harris.

“There is quite a lot of talk around campus about having to go see the new video wall at the Berkowitz complex. We’re also hearing that other MSU departments would like to have one, too.”

Christie Spyder X20 Manages and Controls Content

To complete the project, the school needed a powerful video processor to do full justice to the content – which is where the Christie Spyder X20 came in. The school’s video production department produces a variety of branded content with one highlight being a line of past coaches that includes their history at the touch of a button while game days include satellite feeds and other MSU-branded content.

“Bob Christopher (central regional manager, Christie) recommended the Spyder X20 and we, in-turn, recommended it to the school; it became part of the whole design project. It was the best fit for the MicroTiles wall,” Harris concluded. “Working with Bob, and Christie as a whole, has been great. I would do it again.”

Christie MicroTiles bright, color-rich and flawless images are the perfect digital technology for creating impressive displays in university and college lobbies, auditoriums and athletic facilities. Several higher education institutions – including the James B. Hunt Jr. Library at the North Carolina State University and Texas Tech University – are benefiting from Christie MicroTiles video walls.

Powerful Christie Projectors Drive Idaho Power’s Unique Hybrid Control Room Wall

Christie® projection technology is an integral part of a groundbreaking hybrid display wall solution for Idaho Power’s new control room that is helping the electric utility serve its half-million customers with a more efficient, more informative, and more reliable monitoring system. The SA2™ patent-pending solution designed by Primate Technologies, Inc. overlays dynamic projected content from a series of Christie DS+6K-M SXGA 3-chip DLP® projectors onto a digital-based modular tile mapboard from Monitor Mapboard Systems. The unique combination allows abnormal conditions to be projected and lit upon the screen, making it easier to see situations such as an open breaker or multiple breakers flashing at different stations.

Idaho Power’s service area spans some of the most rugged and remote landscape across southern Idaho and eastern Oregon to serve a population of approximately 1,000,000 people. When the utility was moving to a new location, it sought to remodel its control room and started exploring potential alternatives to the traditional, static-type mapboards that would not be affected by the ambient light from the windows. In the past, the utility had used anything from a paper map to a tiled mapboard. Idaho Power was intrigued by the hybrid Scadaboard solution suggested by Monitor and Primate that still met all its criteria for a rugged, 24/7 wall that was also customizable, providing up-to-the-second information while maintaining a static component of the control monitoring display which is critical during outages or catastrophic events.

Primate Technologies Inc., which builds robust visualization software products for the energy industry, developed the unique concept of overlaying projected content from overhead Christie projectors in strategic areas of Monitor Mapboard Systems’ modular, digital output based mapboard with software driven dynamic content just in the areas needed. The result was a hybrid display wall that is much more visible to the entire room, allowing for increased situation awareness and the ability for operators to easily add collaborative information and tags to the projected dynamic content. Primate Technologies, Inc. software also allows users to add additional displays or change the appearance of the dynamic content projected on the board.
“Idaho Power’s hybrid solution is the first of its kind and represents a marriage of leading technologies in 24/7 control rooms,” said Rita Patterson, vice president of Sales, Marketing and Customer Relations at Primate Technologies, Inc. “With the primary goal of providing a highly efficient control room environment, we needed to make sure that the companies we chose fully understood that environment. For digital front projection, Christie was the clear choice as they came highly recommended by trusted customers.”

Monitor Mapboard Systems provides situational awareness tools for displaying the ‘big picture’ in the form of large, physical dynamic mapboards, which are graphic representations of the client’s grid or service territory. It also offers dynamic mapboards that are wired with LEDs to show abnormal status. When coupled with Primate Technologies’ dynamically projected software, this “live” Scadaboard™ provides the ultimate situational awareness mapboard solution.

“Electric utilities have a history of using mapboards to display their big picture system status, making them a critical tool for alerting the dispatcher when something has happened,” noted Vince Blaeser, principal, Monitor Mapboard Systems. “The hybrid Scadaboard solution brings additional layers of relevant and dynamic content to the system operators.”

“Analog display walls are common in the industry, and we considered everything from using materials that included metal or plastic tile boards, to massive silkscreen tile boards with switches or lights,” said Gary Felton Jr., Chief Dispatcher, Load Serving Operations, Idaho Power. “The hybrid display was the ideal solution. We are especially impressed with the images from the three Christie DS+6K-M projectors. They are exceptionally bright, crisp and vibrant, and really ‘pop’ when you see them on the board.”

“We are pleased to be selected for this unique solution for Idaho Power that represents a perfect marriage of three leading technologies for control rooms. This hybrid display has a truly high-tech feel,” said Dave Muscat, senior director, Control Room Solutions, at Christie. “It’s really inspiring to see how Primate Technologies, Inc. and Monitor Mapboard Systems helped Idaho Power brilliantly meet its needs.”

At Booth 9207 at the IEEE Conference and Exposition April 14-17 in Chicago, Monitor Mapboards will feature Scadaboard™, a real-time monitoring display wall technology that uses Primate Technologies, Inc.’s data visualization software and Christie DHD800 HD DLP® front projection to bring timely content to a Monitor mapboard, delivering enhanced situational and operational awareness.
