With advances made in the digital world, it is no surprise to see traditional art forms make the jump to bridge the digital divide as well. While using LEDs as some sort of art isn’t exactly going to turn it to the next Renaissance-level legend, the Unique MicroTiles digital display technology offers something very different to the world of art, where it creates a virtually seamless digital canvas of almost any size or shape according to your whims and fancies, offering spectacular, crisp visuals from just about any distance.
Known as the Christie MicroTiles, these are modular digital display tiles are able to be stacked and clustered in a similar manner to that of building blocks, helping one create display walls of virtually and shape or scale via the use of totally new, advanced optical design which results in unparalleled levels of brightness, contrast and color reproduction. One can basically tip the Christie MicroTiles system to be a revolution in the world of digital art, where its large-format digital display technology will boast superior color and image reproduction, the widest possible viewing angles to date on a commercial level, a near absence of seams on display walls with but a 1mm gap between the tiles. Apart from that, the groundbreaking LED- and DLP-based system were also specially designed for long, reliable commercial use in public areas. Since there are no lamps or other consumable parts to replace, maintenance costs are lowered even further. As for the LED light engine used within, it has been rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness usage, which more or less equals to nearly 7.5 years of non-stop operation.
You get a screen size of 16″ wide x 12″ high, while having a shallow depth of only 10″, requiring all of 2″ of minimal clearance for rear ventilation. The Christie engineers made sure that these MicroTiles are fully and easily serviced from the front itself for added convenience. Being “self-aware”, they will perform their own color calibration courtesy of integrated sensors to make sure that video walls look uniform.
