Christie Display Technology and Adtech Systems Deliver Lifelike Images and Outstanding Customer Service at Boston College

With a commitment to fostering and imparting knowledge, Boston College has earned its reputation as one of America’s top institutions of higher learning. Therefore, when it was time to upgrade the projection technology at the storied college, Adtech Systems Inc., installed more than 70 Christie® projectors to deliver course material, lectures and presentations in classrooms and auditoriums.

After a successful demonstration, the school is replacing old product with Christie and calling it a great choice. “The (Christie) price point is fantastic compared to any other manufacturer. We had another manufacturer come in – offering all kinds of incentives and programs – and the product just didn’t meet what we wanted and the price point wasn’t right,” said Jim Clements CTS, project manager, Media Technology Services, Boston College. “Nobody comes close to offering what Christie offers. If you can install a Christie projector, why would you buy anything else?”

The seminar rooms are outfitted with Christie LWU420 projectors while a larger, theater-style 80-seat auditorium has a 1-chip DLP® Christie DHD800. Clements confirmed that one Christie LX700 and one Christie DHD675-E are slated for installation in the Fine Arts department.

The 8000 ANSI lumens Christie DHD800 offers full HD and high-brightness in a 1-chip DLP® projector, making it ideally suited for Boston College’s large auditorium. The Christie DHD675-E delivers lifelike color reproduction and its Dynamic Contrast is perfect for the smaller collaborative classrooms and meeting rooms.

“We also have several Christie LWU505 projectors in three different campuses in a number of different buildings including the Arts and Sciences building, which we just built,” said Clements. “The Arts and Sciences building is a 200,000 square foot, gothic-style facility with 54 classrooms using the LWU505 projectors right now.”

More Christie Technology on the Way
“As Bill Copley (Northeast Territory Sales Manager, Christie) and Adtech can see from future projects, we’ve gone out of our comfort zone in model type and we’re starting to incorporate a number of different models. That kind of success just breeds more success for us to go back to the product,” added Clements. “Bill has brought flat panel technologies to my attention. We have a sporting facility that we’re looking at doing some upgrades there – maybe we want to put in some of these environment-safe outdoor panels (Christie FHD551-W). Maybe we want to put in some video walls. Based on our experiences with Christie, it would certainly lead us to follow its product line.

“Bill (Copley) and Matt Fionda of Adtech Systems have been fantastic. Everything that Christie has promised and offered us they have delivered. That says a lot, certainly in this market. A guarantee or warranty is one thing, but to stand behind it and prove it just continues our partnership with Christie and Adtech as long as I’m here.”

Phase Two of the project – which includes an additional 20 projectors – will see a Christie L2K1000 installed in the 200-person capacity auditorium located in the Admissions/Fine Arts building that also hosts general classes and a 20-foot wide screen.

SIM2 Miami Road Show Exceeds Expectations

Miramar, Florida—July 2013—SIM2’s top dealer partners attending the SIM2 Road Show in Miami are calling the first two days of the three-day tour a resounding success. The exclusive event is designed to provide dealers with an unprecedented opportunity to view some of the company’s most advanced technological achievements to date—the CINEMAQUATTRO, SIRIO, M.150, LUMIS, NERO, and the limited-edition FUORISERIE home cinema projectors.

Bill Petters, of Sound Components, in Miami, said of the event, “What impressed me the most is the wide range of products that SIM2 has come to market with. Not only are the products extremely high performance, but they can be installed by integrators like our company, and are practical for end users—simple solutions with various price points. depending on the level of performance a client wants to get into. SIM2 has a very nice, wide range, from entry level to state of the art—it’s a great solution for us.” Bill’s favorite was the M.150. “The depth of field, color saturation, black levels, and brightness were simply outstanding.”

Stan Beran, of Sound Performance, in Miami, said, “First, I’m impressed with the amount of projectors on display, starting from a couple-hundred thousand to things more reasonable, around 10 to 12 thousand. What really knocked me out is the [M.150] LED projector, for people who like fine lines and details—it’s probably the best one I’ve ever seen. If you want the punch and attack, having the double stack SIRIO is a knockout for people—even one by itself is very bright.”

SIM2's CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K 3-Chip DLP Home Cinema Projector

The star of the show was SIM2’s CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K DLP 3-Chip Home Cinema Projector. Some of the key specifications are: three 4K (4096 x 2160), 1.38” DLP chipsets, up to 25,000 ANSI Lumens; Triple Flash 3D Technology; SIM2’s Exclusive High Contrast and Colorimetry Profiles; a user-replaceable Xenon Bubble Lamp; remote monitoring and so much more.

“With a third day yet to be completed, we have already exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance and excitement for this event,” said Maurizio Cini, CEO and President of SIM2. “Our guests in Miami were among the first in the U.S. to witness the amazing power of full 4K resolution from the CINEMAQUATTRO, along with a comprehensive demonstration of our full line of solutions. Based on the feedback from those attending, and building on the anticipated success of additional tour stops, we expect to see a dramatic growth in business over the remainder of 2013—even surpassing the positive trend we’ve seen in the past quarter.”

The 2013 SIM2 Road Show represents an extraordinary business opportunity for SIM2 partners, with the opportunity for one-on-one meetings with key company executives, crucial forecasting information and special product demonstrations. The U.S. portion of the tour includes additional stops in Los Angeles, August 20-22, and in New York City, September 3-5.

Los Alamos National Laboratory Upgrades Its PowerWall Theater with Christie Projection System

Los Alamos National Laboratory has selected visualization leader Christie® for an extensive upgrade to its Powerwall Theater (PWT), an innovative facility that enables researchers to view the complex models and simulations they have created using some of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The new theater will feature a total of 40 Christie Mirage WU-L WUXGA DLP® 3D LED projectors in a 5 wide by 4 high node grid configuration with double-stacked projectors in each node onto a new ultra high fidelity glass Stewart Filmscreen, and includes Christie AutoCal™ automated blending and alignment for the highest performance 3D content at up to true 120Hz and Christie ArrayLoc™ for continuous color and brightness matching. The technologies combined create seamless, integrated visualization to meet the multi-faceted needs of the laboratory.

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) develops and applies science and technology to ensure the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear deterrent. It works to reduce global threats and solve other emerging national security and energy challenges. Located within the Strategic Computing Complex, the new Powerwall Theater is part of the Data Visualization Corridor that also includes a five-sided La Cueva Grande Immersive Laboratory, as well as desktop visualization and collaborator capabilities. The Powerwall Theater is used to display 3D video content and PowerPoint presentations, as well as interactive data exploration and collaboration among LANL scientists and engineers, outside visitors and funders, stakeholders, and visiting scientists from across the U.S.

The Powerwall in action at Los Alamos National Laboratory

A Picture is Worth [More Than] A Thousand Words
Content is streamed to the Powerwall Theater through a large integrated infrastructure, which is hooked up to various file and visualization systems and computers, allowing users to easily switch between 3D stereoscopic video and high-resolution 2D data.

According to Laura Monroe, ASC Production Visualization Leader, HPC-5 Special Projects Team Leader, the PWT has provided the lab with a vital resource for displaying and interpreting data.

“Visualization allows for complex ideas to come to life in a way they wouldn’t on paper,” Monroe explained. “At times, we are doing simulations of physical data and certain dynamics —seeing it visualized in high-resolution, at a high frame rate (HFR) – and 3D can really help understand things faster. With new and advanced technology ever evolving, I would say a picture is worth much more than a thousand words now.”

“As an institution dealing with U.S national security as well as issues of national and global significance, LANL has an absolute need for premiere, top-of-the-line technology and equipment,” said Zoran Veselic, vice president of Visual Environments at Christie. “Visualization plays an incredibly important role in exploring and synthesizing data and information, not only among scientists within the lab, but also among external companies, visitors, and researchers coming in to view a presentation or collaborate on new ideas. We are pleased that our Christie Mirage WU-L LED WUXGA projectors were selected to deliver the visually stunning 2D and 3D images needed for this high-profile environment.”

Staying at the Forefront of Visualization with Christie
Before its new upgrade, the theater employed an earlier generation of 24 Christie Mirage Series projectors powering 24 separate screens. When it came time to bring the visualization theater up to speed, Christie was again selected to deliver a new and improved state-of-the-art solution. By using 40 double-stacked Christie Mirage WU-L WUXGA projectors for increased brightness, the new theater will now feature the latest advancements in seamless visualization technology. Four Christie Spyder X20 image processors were also chosen for the solution, providing enhanced integration with 20 megapixel video processing, matrix switching, and integrated source monitoring.

A key factor for the upgrade was ensuring a seamless, smooth appearance to the wall. Three vertical glass screens are replacing the 24 individual ones, while blending of the projection images, perfected with built-in auto-calibration and color balance capabilities, will ensure flawless image quality. With the new solution, everything is aligned with more accuracy and in less time.

Among the other criteria for the new design were versatility, ease of maintenance, color reproduction, sharpness and contrast, and 3D stereoscopic support. Christie Mirage WU-L projectors easily met these needs. They offer high resolution, high pixel density, high reliability, and continuous system calibration for a cost-effective 2D/3D capable, flexible visualization solution. The Christie Mirage WU-L also leaves a small energy footprint, with LED illumination that ensures precise, life-like vibrant colors, low cost of ownership and low maintenance.

Monroe added: “The Los Alamos National Laboratory has a very long history of using computer visualization to understand extremely large and complex systems. This is why we want to invest in very advanced visualization technology — we need to stay at the forefront of visualization technology to understand our large datasets.”
