Christie MicroTiles Get Tweaks For New Version
September 5, 2013 by Dave Haynes
It’s been four years, so Christie was about due to upgrade its little MicroTiles display blocks – though the changes are tweaks and not wholesale revisions.
The newly announced MicroTiles S310 displays are JUST a bit skinnier at the seams.
Featuring the same optical performance and construction as the S300, the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen is slightly larger and features 0.7-millimeter seams (compared to 1.3-millimeter seams for the S300). The S310 operating temperature range is 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit) to 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). Just like the S300 screen option, the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen delivers excellent contrast with deeper blacks and image uniformity in even the most demanding indoor high ambient light environments.
The units are now shipping.
The seams between tiles were already pretty skinny, but when you are stitching them together as a backdrop for HD broadcast sets, or in a museum or corporate lobby, getting those gridlines to largely disappear is important.
