Three years after the introduction of the Christie Boxer 3DLP projector, and yet this product is still able to innovate. That’s because at ISE 2018, Christie has announced that the boxer will be the first projector to deliver direct interfacing of 4K audio visual content, processing, and control over 10G Ethernet.
The Christie Terra SDVoE input board for Boxer continues Christie’s investment in SDVoE. It migrates everything onto the network, integrating all media and control onto a single system using a single cable.
With Christie Boxer now accepting SDVoE content over 10G Ethernet, the quality, efficiency, flexibility, performance, and scalability of migrating AV onto the network means a brand new, better AV solution.
“Christie Boxer is the first projector that integrates directly to an Ethernet network to accept real-time, 4K/60 AV content and control using SDVoE. The input board supports onboard processing and eliminates the need to purchase an external SDVoE receiver, and install, wire and power it locally to the projector,” says Curtis Lingard, senior product manager, Christie.
“Christie is leading the AV industry and the SDVoE Alliance by introducing this solution, and the Terra SDVoE input board for Boxer is another step in the migration of AV systems directly onto networks.”
Christie Terra Transmitters, Receivers, and Controller all available in February 2018
System solutions incorporating the Christie Terra Transmitter, Receiver and Controller provide complete, secure operational control and management over SDVoE systems – making it ideal for entertainment, rental and staging, and large format display solutions as well as mission-critical environments such as government control rooms, telecommunications, the energy sector, intelligent transportations systems, and other high security environments.
“By using Christie Terra Controller and the entire Christie Terra family, users can configure networked devices, control routing, configure audio, manage source and display configurations and easily scale visuals all from a single, easy-to-use programming interface,” adds Karl Johnson, senior product manager, Christie.
“Terra Controller provides multi-level user access, encrypted control and system data, user access and operational system logging, strong password management and more to ensure the safeguarding of your information.”
The Christie Terra family is built on standardised, affordable, off-the-shelf 10G SDVoE technology. This enables the signal distribution, control, processing and KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) of uncompressed, zero-frame latency audio and visual content over 10G Ethernet networks including artefact-free 4K at 60Hz video formats. The Terra system comprises three products: the transmitter, receiver and controller, which support switching, processing, and control among numerous sources and displays over great distances.
