Christie Moves Champaign-Urbana Transportation Control Room Forward with New High Resolution 55 Inch Flat Panels

For the more than ten million passengers who rely on transit in Champaign, Illinois, and the surrounding areas, the new Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (CUMTD) control room provides peace of mind as dispatchers monitor and respond more quickly to activities en route with a large Christie visual display wall.

As part of its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), the CUMTD’s newly-built, larger headquarters includes a control room equipped with 10 state-of-the-art Christie FHD551-X LCD full-HD flat panels –ideal for control room solutions requiring larger, brighter video walls for a clearer view of information.

“The new Christie video wall is at the center of information sharing. It’s on 20 hours a day, seven days a week to monitor bus activities in the city,” noted Karl Gnadt, director of market development, CUMTD. “Christie’s flat panels are reliable and provide excellent image quality.”

Zdi, Inc, the systems integration company headquartered in Normal, Illinois, who won the contract commissioned by the CUMTD, partnered with AECOM to design the new control room, and selected Christie’s solutions and visual display products. “It’s the quality of the products, the ease of installation and the service that I knew I would get from Christie that made the decision easy. They were all spot on, and we will definitely use Christie products again,” said Jay McArdle, lead engineer with Zdi, Inc.

“The CUMTD required a solution that was up to date and could fit into a challenging space configuration, while providing the pixel density needed to display feeds from 300 new video cameras situated in bus stops, the transfer terminal as well as in maintenance and administration facilities,” said John Stark, Christie’s senior director of Collaborative Visual Solutions. “Christie has a broad range display solutions that lets you monitor, control and interact with all your visual assets – from any source – in real time.”

The Christie FHD551-X is a tiled LCD solution for a wide range of video wall applications, including control rooms, corporate and retail displays, and digital-out-of-home advertising.

This full-HD resolution, narrow bezel, flat-panel display is energy efficient with LED backlighting, and controlled brightness levels that are well suited for indoor environments.

According to Gnadt, “The dispatchers love the new control center, love the screens and their ability to enlarge images and see video feeds more quickly, which increases their response time for all activities.”

What to do with my TV now that’s it’s already on the wall.

It’s all in the trend of living room decor. More and more people are realizing that it’s not enough to mount their TV on the wall. They want something more. There are 3 popular option, TV mirror, TV frame, roll up TV art. But which is the right option for me?

First TV mirror, cost $2,000 and up, practicality low. It’s great when you don’t use your TV at all, but if you do. You will quickly realized that the glare produce by the tv mirror is causing you to want to smash it with a hammer. No way by any mean should you get a TV mirror if you are planning to use your TV, plus the fact that it cost 4 times the price of your TV, should keep you a million miles away from it.

Then you have the motorized TV art. Cost? $1,500 and up. Benefit? not much except it look real cool when you are not watching TV.

TV FRAME WWW.LCDFASHION.COM

TV picture frame? cost? $300 and up. Benefits? makes your TV look cool (whether you’re watching or not), compliment your current decor, allow you to used it as a digital picture frame, or to display your favorite artwork. By far the most practical, beautiful, and cost efficient.

LAS VEGAS — TVLogic has added another two awards to its growing collection of honors. The manufacturer of LCD and OLED high definition displays received a STAR award from the editors of TV Technology at NAB 2012 for their new LQM-471W monitor; and their LVM-074W was recognized for outstanding achievement with a Black Diamond Award from Digital Video at the same show. NAB, held in Las Vegas from April 16th – April 19th, is the world’s largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums.

Now celebrating its 12th anniversary, the STAR Awards (for Superior Technology Award Recipient) are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the media industry. A judging panel of broadcast industry experts reviewed a variety of products and services, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.

“The NAB show serves as the launching pad for thousands of new products and services for audio and video professionals,” said Tom Butts, TV Technology Editor-in-Chief. “Our panel of editors walked the show floor in search of the most innovative technologies. The products and services that we selected for the STAR Award made the cut—they demonstrated their ability to help advance the acquisition and distribution of entertainment and information across the media spectrum.”

The award-winning LQM-471W, a 47” 1920×1080 quad input monitor, was designed for multi-source monitoring in control rooms. With four SDI inputs/outputs, the LQM-471W supports multiple display configurations with features like Waveform/Vector Scope, Closed-Caption support, Timecode display, and remote control.

TVLogic also received a Black Diamond Award from Digital Video for their innovative LVM-074W 7″production Viewfinder Monitor. Black Diamonds recognize outstanding achievement in the advancement of video technology. A select panel of engineers, editors, and production and post professionals joined the magazine staff to judge the Best of Show awards.

“Our teams searched the NAB show floor for products that were truly deserving of recognition,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. “Recognition with an award at NAB from the Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from this leading industry publication.”
