Christie installations captivate customers in Las Vegas
While in Las Vegas, NAB Show attendees can see Christie technology in action at the Westgate Resort and Casino Sportsbook where a record-breaking 220 x 20 foot, curved Christie Velvet® LED display keeps fans up to date. Working with HB Communications, RPV and Christie created the enormous array comprising 1,640 2.5 millimeter Christie Velvet LED tiles boasting over 65 million pixels – creating a stadium-like experience unlike any other where every seat in the newly renovated Westgate SuperBook is a “front-row” experience. A collaboration between McCann Systems and CG Technology at the Silverton Casino Hotel was expertly integrated to create an impressive 7.5 x 53-foot sports book with superior visuals made up of Christie Velvet LED tiles.
In downtown Las Vegas, several Christie projectors are in The Mob Museum, which is dedicated to the history of organized crime and law enforcement. The former courthouse and United States Post Office presents the real stories and events of mob history through interactive and engaging exhibits that reveal all sides of the story about the role of organized crime in the U.S.
