New Christie Phoenix EP Extends Phoenix Product Family

new-christie-phoenix-ep-0916Christie is expanding the Phoenix family of products with the launch of the Phoenix EP (Embedded Processor) this week.

A compact, scalable solution for managing content on single or multiple panels, the Phoenix EP installs directly into compatible Christie displays – which also provide power – and connects directly to a network using CATx cable.  One Phoenix EP processes networked sources, decodes and manages audiovisual and data sources on up to two Christie flat panels. Phoenix EP streamlines system designs, and eliminates requirements for AV extension and distribution equipment.

Christie Phoenix EP is a network distributed processor that installs directly into compatible Christie displays. It’s designed for managing content on video walls and distributed displays and also works for applications such as control rooms, presentation rooms and digital signage displays. Offering the same powerful processing features as Christie Phoenix, Phoenix EP enables seamless access and control of audiovisual data from virtually anywhere, through a single, robust system.

Each Christie Phoenix EP connects directly to the network using Category cable, significantly lowering the costs associated with traditional dedicated AV distribution products. Featuring an easy-to-use interface and on-screen status, Christie Phoenix EP streamlines workflow and tasks associated with integrating and managing AV systems by dramatically reducing cabling, rack space and installation complexity and costs.

Here are the tech specs.
