Christie Boxer Is First Projector with Integrated SDVoE 10G AV-over-IP Port

The Christie Boxer 3DLP projector is the first, ever, projector with a direct interface for up to 4K content and control over 10G Ethernet using the SDVoE standard. The Christie Terra SDVoE input board for Boxer allows for video, audio and control onto a single system using a single cable.

As an SDVoE Alliance founder, Christie is leading the transition of AV systems from bandwidth-limited, scale-limited, circuit-switched signal infrastructures onto the limitless scalability, bandwidth and reach that Ethernet networks offer.

System solutions incorporating the Christie Terra Transmitter, Receiver and Controller provide complete, secure operational control and management over SDVoE systems — making it perfect for entertainment, rental and staging, and large format display solutions as well as mission-critical environments such as government control rooms, telecommunications, the energy sector, intelligent transportations systems and other high security environments.

Featuring a web-based programming interface, the Christie Terra Controller is easy to learn and use, simplifying and speeding up the installation, configuration, programming, management and operational tasks of SDVoE systems.

The redundant control configuration delivers continuous operation and system updates while the solid-state storage means no moving parts — ensuring long-term reliability without compromise.

The Christie Terra family is built on off-the-shelf 10G SDVoE technology. This enables the signal distribution, control, processing and KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) of what Christie says is uncompressed, zero-frame latency audio and visual content over 10G Ethernet networks including artifact-free 4K at 60Hz video formats. The Terra system comprises three products: the transmitter, receiver and controller, which support switching, processing and control among numerous sources and displays over great distances.

Here are the details.
