SINGAPORE – Christie®, a leader in creating and sharing the world’s best visual experiences, is pleased to announce that the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) has acquired 12 Christie Secure Series SUHD651-L LCD panels for its Central college in Ang Mo Kio.
The Christie SUHD651-L is a TAA-compliant, non-RF display designed specifically for secure-facility applications, and boasts 4K UHD resolution for impeccable image quality. Installed by local systems integrator AV World, the 65-inch panels serve as show relay monitors around a 300-seat multipurpose theatre known as Theatre@IlluminITE, which is used for staging various events and functions.
"We were looking at replacing the existing LCD panels which had been in service for eight years when we chanced upon the Christie Secure Series," said Joshua Chong, Technical Officer, Venue Management, CDE Division, ITE. "We were immediately drawn to its stunning 4K resolution and secure features such as non-RF functionality that prevents any form of tempering or potential hacking of onscreen content. A professional display with secure features is not commonly found in the market and we are excited that Christie offers flat panels with such capabilities."
ITE College Central subsequently invested in three Christie Secure Series SUHD551-L 55-inch panels for testing. Chong noted that at the end of the months-long evaluation period, the panels proved to be reliable whilst being able to deliver excellent picture quality. A decision was then made to acquire 12 Christie SUHD651-L panels, and the installation was completed in two weeks. "AV World provided great service and quality of workmanship. They were able to deliver the installation requirements diligently and efficiently," Chong added.
Earlier this year, ITE College Central invested in 12 Christie 1DLP® laser projectors comprising the DHD1075-GS and D16HD-HS models for deployment across the campus. These venues include Theatre@IlluminITE, lecture halls and a speaker’s chamber for training, executive saloons and event halls for corporate training and hosting of VIPs during official events. Both the staff and students have benefited greatly from these displays as they made course delivery and learning more interesting and engaging with amazingly colorful, detailed visuals.
Bensen Ong, sales manager, Enterprise, Christie Singapore, commented: "ITE College Central is a forward-looking educational institution that has placed much emphasis on technology to enhance learning and prepare students for jobs in the digital age. We are pleased that the institution has invested in our high-performance Secure Series 65-inch 4K UHD 400 nit LCD panels that are designed for 16/7 operation and secure-facility applications."
Ideal for meeting rooms, control rooms and digital signage applications, the Christie Secure Series is equipped with professional features such as OPS slot, USB playback, and built-in Crestron Fusion RV software in a secure, reliable and affordable package. This feature-rich series offers business grade functions and performance at a competitive price to better meet customer needs, including current TAA requirements.
