Terra comprises an expanding series of transmitters, receivers, control hardware and software that enables the design and integration of Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE)-compliant systems in a simple, flexible, highly-scalable and affordable package. With Terra, Christie offers a complete native 4K, 4:4:4 content delivery, from player to display. Terra helps customers leverage the benefits of the SDVoE™ Alliance, which promises a standardised approach to maximise the scale, scope and user-experience of AV-over-IP system architecture and performance.

Built on standardised SDVoE technology, Christie Terra solutions support video formats up to 4K at 60Hz and provide unprecedented performance capabilities transporting and processing of uncompressed, zero-frame latency, artefact-free video over affordable 10G Ethernet components. Christie is a founding member of the SDVoE alliance. Maintaining the integrity of a creator's source material without degradation, compression or latency; Christie addressed its image processing technology, lensing, input & output, content management (Spyder X80), show management (Pandoras Box Octo) & distribution management (Phoenix Quad) to create an end-to-end solution true to the content it serves.

The company made the best of the opportunity presented at ISE to engage the market by inviting attendees to learn more about the latest developments in its AV solutions at the Education Zone. A host of speakers from Christie's team were available to take visitors through its most recent content management and processing technologies featured at the show – including Pandoras Box, Widget Designer, Terra, Spyder X80 and Mystique.

"The Education Zone is a fantastic way for interested parties to get a better understanding of what Christie has to offer," says Simon Smith, vice president of Christie EMEA. "ISE is a fantastic event, but with so much on show, it can be difficult to find an opportunity to look at solutions in real depth. At the Education Zone, attendees have the opportunity to hear about what can be achieved with Christie technologies, as well as learn about effective techniques to maximise output."

Brant Eckert, the senior marketing manager for Christie Digital, spoke with Pro-Systems News at ISE and confirmed that the company's impressive stand was a hub of activity throughout the four-day show. "Christie continues to aspire to drive innovation in projection and digital display technology," Eckert states. The level of engagement at the company's stand served as a testament to the company's achievements in this regard.
