Video-wall display cubes leverage LEDs

Government agencies have the most impressive control rooms in the world. Whether monitoring the nation’s air traffic, keeping a city safe, or plotting the course of a battle, those dimly lit control centers need to be up and active all the time.

Christie Entero HB display cube

Christie recently released a new line designed for that kind of work, the Entero HB  video wall display cubes offer constant uptime for 50- or 80-inch displays, the company said.

Each cube is based on LED technology -- with over 1,000 lumens capability -- and supports wireless networking. The system also includes ArraySync auto-color and brightness LED video-wall management as well as improved tiling and scaling.

Christie’s new Entero HB series is based on DLP, LED and image processing technology, all proven technologies for long life with minimal maintenance requirements, the company said. With Wi-Fi capability as well as the traditional control options, users are always “in control,” whether using the full-function IR remote keypad, wireless devices or a standard PC.

The series features intelligent, “hands’ off” self-monitoring, 12-bit RGB color sensing and monitoring, as well as a lot of flexibility in customizing images, from screen size to native resolutions to pixel-density options.
In addition to the video cubes, Christie’s is unveiling a tandem display, where two operators can view different images from the same source. This type of technology is good for simulations where, for example, a pilot and co-pilot in an aircraft simulation see separate feeds, representing different points of view.
