Christie to Launch Home Entertainment Division at CEDIA Thursday

christie-cedia-0914Christie will be showcasing a variety of three-chip DLP, one-chip DLP, flat panel and audio solutions available for home entertainment at the CEDIA Expo, exhibiting at the show for the first time in the company’s 85-year history.

Using DCI and alternative 4K content, the 1,200-square-foot booth features a premium home-entertainment theater where audiences will enjoy the exhilarating and memorable Christie experience with the thundering sounds and vibrant images previously available only in commercial theaters or to A-list celebrities. Additional alternative content will also be featured on secondary displays at the booth.

Additional presentations by Christie home entertainment experts will take place throughout the show, which will also include a ‘Who is Christie?’ quiz. Visitors to the booth who complete a survey can win a pair of M1 Vive Audio speakers and other special giveaways will be available.

A founder in Digital Cinema technology, event marketing, and both large and small venue display applications, Christie is now expanding its expertise and scaling it to fit the home environment. George Walter, director of Home Entertainment, Christie, will be attending the show, participating in presentations, and giving media interviews.

“Now, the Christie cinema experience you’ve enjoyed at your local theater is available in the comfort and convenience of your home,” said Walter. “Working with an elite dealer system, Christie will orchestrate the delivery, installation and servicing of a wide-range of projectors, flat panel displays, processors and audio solutions to strengthen and complement the services of these high-end integrators.”

Christie home entertainment customers can also connect with the Christie Network Operations Center (NOC) to monitor their systems and components, receive software updates and have access to 24/7 concierge support.
