Christie Microtiles (Cypress, Calif.) provided the display technology for Northern Kentucky University’s new College of Informatics.

Located in the Digitorium of Griffin Hall, the university’s first LEED-certified building, the Christie elements include a 19-ft.-wide by 15-ft.-high array of Christie MicroTiles (25 ft. wide by 15 ft. high), displaying images, videos, and graphics. The 120-seat Digitorium hosts virtual performances, simulations, collaborative gaming, workflow modeling, and 3D visualization, all fed to the Christie MicroTiles by four Christie projectors and two Christie Spyder X20-1608 image processors managing and controlling the content.

The MicroTiles receive several feeds including streaming video, HDMI out of a laptop, display footage out of a laptop, AV, cable TV feed, PC graphics, static images, and broadcast STI feeds.
