New Christie Brio Meeting Room Solution Lets Participants Share More

The days of passing cables and adapters across meeting room tables, installing additional software, rebooting laptops, and apologizing for delayed or bungled presentations have ended with the launch of Christie Brio, a new meeting presentation and collaboration system that takes the hassles out of single and multi-site workplace meetings.

Developed by Christie®, a world leader in display and visualization solutions, Brio enables multiple attendees at meetings to run audio and video presentations from their own devices, without scrambling for matching display cables and adapters, plugging in dongles or installing and configuring new software to get it working.

Christie Brio


Straightforward to install and use, Brio uses wired or wireless connections to automatically share multiple presentations showing simultaneously on either one or two meeting room screens. Whether participants use Macs or PCs, iPads or Android tablets, or smartphones, presentations can be added to a meeting as a thought occurs, their information showing on that meeting room display in seconds.

Brio is being unveiled this week at the InfoComm 2013 Pro-AV trade show in Orlando, Fla., and starts shipping this summer.

Share and collaborate like never before
Using a single, low-cost hardware Brio node, any meeting room can automatically show up to five computer screens on that room’s display.”Once the content is processed by the node it can also be made available to other Brio nodes via ethernet. In this way a variety of information – including PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, audio, digital whiteboards, and videoconferencing sessions – can be shown on any display attached to the Brio node, and shared with all the displays in the same meeting.

Brio nodes can be connected via network to multiple worksites on a corporate campus, or across the country. All Brio nodes added to a meeting will see the same presentations, and any Brio node user can share a presentation in the meeting. Brio makes interactive collaboration across multiple rooms and offices straightforward, seamless and immediate, plus the cost of Brio nodes is low enough to equip even remote users in home offices.

Brio also takes full advantage of interactive whiteboard technology. Users in multiple locations can work together on notes and sketches. Any Brio node connected to a meeting allows users, anywhere, to contribute to that whiteboard session.

“We’ve all been in meetings that were slowed down or fell apart because of the many hassles that come up when multiple people with their own laptops and software try to get presentations successfully running on meeting room screens. I’ve seen cheers break out when it all actually works,” said Christian Merrill, Christie Brio product manager.

“Brio changes that, and makes it easy for multiple persons to run presentations at meetings – even across several corporate sites on a network and since Brio is all network-driven, it does not require users to install any new software or use a USB device to make it all work,” added Merrill. “The moment you introduce new software inside a corporate environment, you can have issues with approved software and administration rights. Visitors who need to run a presentation might even be unable to download the needed software, and many people with company issued laptops don’t have admin permissions to add new software. With Brio, if you can get on the network, you are good to go for making and contributing to presentations.”

Automated Setup
Connecting laptops to a Brio node automatically allows their screens to be shared with all displays connected in a Brio meeting, and the platform intelligently displays material in the correct aspect ratio. For multi-site meetings participants use an intuitive network interface to login and set up that is as simple as making a phone call.

Brio also fully supports smart devices like tablets running Windows 8, Apple iOS and Android. Both the node control and presentation connection work the same for tablets and smartphones as they do for PCs and Macs.

“As we thought about what we wanted in a meeting technology, there were three things that were very clear,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global and corporate marketing, Christie. “One, it had to be easily accessible, with no special training or driver software that users had to install. Two, it had to tear down the existing communication barriers so that sharing information became effortless. And three, it had to allow users to share multiple types of content. The ultimate goal in developing Brio was to ensure that all participants could share whatever they needed to—to ultimately be able to share more.”

Versatile Playback Capabilities allow participants to share more
Christie Brio nodes fit in standard 19-inch IT racks or can sit on their own, packaged to look good on meeting rooms credenzas. The system supports dual-link and single-link DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI. Brio can handle a maximum of five sources.

Brio’s playback quality is exceptional, with the option of running uncompressed 1080p video sources. That means video plays as it was intended, with no dropped frames.

Brio removes another meeting room pain point; i.e., running audio from tiny laptop speakers and hoping all the meeting participants can hear it. With Brio, audio input is streamed through the wireless protocol or connected to Brio with standard jacks. The combined audio output is then connected to the meeting room sound system, and meeting participants still maintain individual control of their presentation’s audio volume. Audio is also shared with attached Brio nodes.

Pro-AV, corporate, meeting facility and education professionals can preview the power and potential of Brio at Christie’s booth # 2521 at InfoComm June 12-14, 2013.

Mission 26 Accomplished For Christie and Endeavour at the California Science Center

The Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final journey is captured in a compelling nine-minute video being shown on a Christie Roadster HD10K-M 3-chip DLP® projector at the California Science Center in the Mission 26: The Big Endeavour exhibit. The film follows the shuttle as it flies over Los Angeles – transported on top of a NASA Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft – before landing at Los Angeles International Airport and taken on its 12-mile, three-day voyage to the Science Center with a cheering crowd of over 1.5 million who lined the route. The Space Shuttle Endeavour flew 25 missions into space, deployed three satellites and orbited Earth 4,671 times. Mission 26 refers to its final journey through the streets of Inglewood and Los Angeles to its permanent home at the Science Center’s Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion where it will inspire future generations of scientists, innovators and engineers.

David Knight and Christie HD10K-M Follow the Voyage to the California Science Center

At the Science Center, guests visit the Mission 26 exhibit, which features more than 80 large-scale photographs depicting Endeavour’s journey. Inside the gallery is the Mission 26 Theater where the new film is running continually throughout the day. Following the movie, visitors can walk downstairs, visit various exhibits and then enter a large pavilion where the Shuttle is displayed.

“We did the film because people love to visually relive this moment in history. It was the first and last time ever something like this would happen on urban city streets and it brought all kinds of people together from all over the world. This commemorates that and gives those who didn’t get to see it a chance to experience it as well,” said David Knight, producer, Endeavour Project.

Knight led a large filming project that documented the entire move-process, beginning with Endeavour being mounted atop the 747 at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and culminating with her installation inside the Shuttle Pavilion. He pursued the project as a labor of love and the response was overwhelming. The 150-person film crew, equipment and everything involved in the project were all donated.

“For the movie that plays on a nearly 30-foot wide silver screen on the wall – people enter from one side, sit down and watch the movie, and then walk out the other side,” said Knight. “The walls don’t go all the way to the ceiling and hanging above the back wall is the HD10K-M. It is front-projecting and shows the movie in 2D with the plan to make a 3D rendering of the movie, and then we’ll switch over to 3D.”

The most compact in its class, the Christie HD10K-M provides true HD native resolution (1920 x 1080) with up to 10,000:1 contrast ratio, dual mercury lamps, embedded Christie Twist™ image warping and edge-blending, built-in portrait capabilities and is 3D upgradable.

“I appreciate the brightness and color depth of the Christie projector: the Mission 26 Theater installation utilizes a wall-painted screen, thus the demands for output power are extremely critical. Two other projector-brands were tried and the Christie difference is stunning,” said Knight.

California Science Center Foundation executive William Harris explained the success of the Shuttle’s final trip and the movie capturing the entire event.

“No Shuttle has ever been available for up close viewing like Endeavour here; you can walk right under and around it. Other shuttles have been available for viewing such as in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. but they are roped off and you can’t go underneath,” he said. “Endeavour is mounted low to the ground, you can actually walk right under it and can read the numbers on the individual thermal tiles, of which there are over 20,000.

“There has always been a lot of pride in the Shuttle program and what mankind can do when we set our minds to it,” continued Harris. “We flew Endeavour throughout California atop the 747 before landing at Los Angeles Airport (LAX). An estimated almost four million people saw it fly over. The number of people who have seen all this is absolutely staggering.

“We are all very pleased – and with up to 25,000 visitors per day it’s important that we have a highly reliable, extended-duty-cycle solution. Christie has delivered that.”

The Mission 26 exhibition runs through Labor Day, September 2, 2013.

Christie Helps Engage Participants at T.I.N.Y – An Interactive Multimedia Public Art Installation by Artist Garson Yu at New York’s Pier 57

At the Marina at Pier 57, Christie® M-Series HD projectors are helping visitors “travel” through New York City by creating a multi-sensory experience for The Interactive New York (T.I.N.Y) exhibition, an interactive multimedia art installation by video artist Garson Yu. The exhibit is inspired by New York City as a living organism, and will let visitors interact with video and sound reminiscent of traveling in the city.

The Interactive New York (T.I.N.Y.) Exhibit at Pier 57


The interim art space, created at the entryway to Pier 57, features a “magic carpet” sculptural installation of 36 hanging shipping containers designed by Madrid-based architecture firm CH+QS Arquitectos. Eight Christie HD10K-M 1080 HD 3-chip DLP® projectors create a special interactive experience within the space, projecting moving images onto the containers of everyday life in New York, including subway scenes and scenes of childhood memories. Displayed in brilliant HD and using the projectors’ embedded warping, blending and color matching capabilities, the images help to simulate a virtual subway train – with visitors traveling from end to end, passing through the containers as one would walk through the different cars of the train. There is an ambient audio track built around the rhythmic rumble of a subway train and layered with city sounds. Walking further into the installation, visitors become participants, and are encouraged to yell and make different vocal sounds into microphones that trigger motion of the visuals.

“We are thrilled that the versatility, brightness, and interactive qualities of the Christie M- Series projectors have provided Garson Yu with an ideal medium for expressing and realizing his artistic vision,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president of global and corporate marketing for Christie. “His exhibit has brought to life a unique and creative idea that can now be enjoyed by many, with each visitor engaging with the experience in their own personal way.”

Garson Yu said, “As a student, I always wanted to design children’s playgrounds, and this is an opportunity to create something almost like an interactive carnival for families and people of all ages to come play and have fun. My hope is for this to evoke the richness of a full range of memories and emotions. I’m bringing the kind of thinking behind the film projects that I work on in Hollywood, and the Christie projectors are essential to helping me create an immersive, interactive experience that affects everyone based on their personal memories. New York is an important part of my artistic life, and it is great to come back here with this show.”

The Christie HD10K-M is a flexible, high performance 3-chip 1080 HD DLP® digital projector featuring high efficiency and brightness, drawing a maximum power of 1320W. Embedded warping, blending and color matching, along with built-in portrait capabilities provide ideal installation flexibility.

Renewed Vision Unveils ProVideoServer at InfoComm 2013

Popular and reliable ProVideoSync media server rebranded and upgraded with significant improvements

ORLANDO, Florida – InfoComm 2013 booth #4211 — Renewed Vision is taking advantage of InfoComm 2013 to officially debut ProVideoServer (PVS), the company’s new four-channel HD video server with synchronization.

Eight years ago, Renewed Vision introduced ProVideoSync, a dual-channel media server currently used by many organizations around the world for the synchronized playback of two channels of broadcast-quality video with select video codecs. Since that time, codecs like H.264 that were originally suitable for web video became of a better quality, distribution of content over the web became more desirable, remote control capabilities in video switchers became more widespread, and the appetite for even more video channels has grown.

With all of that in mind, Renewed Vision’s engineering team set out to address these modern requirements, re-imagining and extending the original scope of PVS. The result is essentially a brand new product with a slightly updated name better suited for its purpose. more
