MicroTiles have been used as a dynamic backdrop for the new television channel
French financial information radio station BFM Business has moved into television with a set that includes a videowall comprised of Christie's MicroTiles product. The wall was built by TAV and is described as 'a core part of the décor', broadcasting real-time stock prices, video and graphics.
"To create this kind of videowall, several technologies were available to us, each with its specific features and, of course, limitations," states Philippe Espinet, chief technology officer of NextRadioTV, owner of BFM Business. "As an initial choice, we had the option of putting together LCD or plasma screens. But given the size of the area to cover (11sq m) and the extensive use throughout the day, there was a risk of the display becoming marked after some time and, in addition, the installation's lifetime would be limited to just two years. So we eliminated this option."
Christie MicroTiles distributor TAV suggested the product as an alternative as it offers a 24-7 lifespan of around 7.5 years.
"We send the display a full HD signal without any pixelation. Over an area of 11sq m with a base of 4.6m, the output is exceptional," says Espinet.
