Christie Takes on Crestron, AMX’s SVSi & Everyone with New Terra AV-over-IP Line

In addition to showing new 4K projectors, a new high-end Spyder processor and an all-new LCD lineup at InfoComm, Christie is getting into the AV-over-IP market as a founding member of the SDVoE Alliance and a new product line called Terra.

Christie Terra solutions  support video formats up to 4K at 60Hz (10-bit color) and provide the processing of uncompressed, zero-frame latency, video over 10G Ethernet components. Sure, there are a bunch of AV-over-IP products out there – and you’ll see at least 28 new manufacturers at InfoComm with them, but this is Christie. Christie. 

This is the first big-brand-named company to adopt the SDVoE AV-over-IP system from AptoVision. As soon as I saw the press release this morning, I jumped on a videocast with Karl Johnson  Sr. Product Manager for Christie Digital’s Image Processing department, and he showed me their first box and was surprisingly candid in saying that Christie intends to add SDVoE AV-over-IP as an input on their projectors and monitors as well as use it for their video wall products. The first three products Christie has include a transmitter, a receiver and a controller

Again, this is big news as this is the first giant company to adopt SDVoE. Some of the other SDVoE adopters with products ZeeVee, DVIGear, Aurora, iMAG, Belden, Arista and TechLogix. 

Christie will be in booth 2553 at InfoComm with the Terra line and it will ship late summer. Here are all the specs.
