The multi award-winning Christie® MicroTiles® display solution was firmly to the fore throughout the 27th Goya Awards ceremony held recently at the Auditorium Hotel in Madrid. There were two T-shaped stands on stage where the winners received their prizes and gave their speeches – each made up of five MicroTiles modules.
In fact, the idea of using MicroTiles actually came from the Spanish Film Academy itself. It specifically asked Elenco Audiovisión, the company commissioned with supplying the audiovisual equipment for the prize-giving ceremony, to use MicroTiles. The two displays received the signal from the mobile unit broadcasting the event.
Christie MicroTiles are modular digital visualisation building blocks that can be stacked and grouped together to create a virtually seamless digital canvas in any size or shape and for any kind of space. With a minimum separation of just 1 mm, the cubes are easily assembled and connected in a matter of seconds.
Blending the best of DLP® projection and LED technology, Christie MicroTiles guarantee images with a higher level of brightness and a much wider spectrum of colours than conventional LCD and plasma screens.
“MicroTiles are ideal for creative displays because you can put them together in any shape or size imaginable. And afterwards you can reshuffle them into completely new designs”, says Marcos Fernández, Christie Sales Director for Spain and Portugal. “For events broadcast live, Christie MicroTiles ensure high resolution images clearly visible from any angle, both up close and at a considerable distance.”
The MicroTiles were supplied to Elenco by Charmex, Christie’s partner in Spain.
Each year the Spanish Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences celebrates the best of Spanish film with the presentation of the Goya Awards to the best professionals in a range of creative and technical categories.
