Christie Steals the Show at the InAVation Awards 2011
ISE, AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – 7th February, 2011. Christie®, a global leader in visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, is delighted to announce that its MicroTiles™ was awarded Most InAVative Digital Signage Product in the Technology Awards category at the prestigious 2011 InAvation Awards, presented at this year’s ISE exhibition in Amsterdam (RAI, Amsterdam – 1st – 3rd February). Last year, Christie achieved great recognition for its Entero™ videowall display solution, winning the category award for Most InAVative Commercial Display.
Christie has won acclaim with its MicroTiles modular digital display solution, which was launched last year across EMEA from the ISE platform. MicroTiles quickly found popularity and success in EMEA and beyond, adopted by rental staging players and deployed in the most successful installations, some of which were shortlisted for the Most InAVative Projects Awards. With a wealth of experience from significant awards won already in this, its first year, Christie MicroTiles were honoured as Most InAVative Digital Signage Product in the Technology Awards category.
Joe Graziano, Market Development Manager MicroTiles, EMEA, proudly accepted the award saying, “When we launched MicroTiles last year, we knew they would make waves, but the feedback not only from Partners and end users but also in the form of awards has been staggering. It’s an honour for us at Christie to bring such a versatile and much-wanted product to the market.”
As sponsors, Christie presented an award and it was the pleasure of Dale Miller, Vice-President, Christie EMEA, to bestow the award for Most InAVative Digital Signage Project in the Project Awards category, to Displax Interactive Systems for the Meditel Project in Morocco.
Christie was also delighted to applaud some of its Partners of long-standing as they collected their awards for Most InAVative Projects:
Most InAVative Corporate AV Facility: PZ Cussons Q, Pure AV

The high brightness of the MicroTiles display, installed by Pure Audio AV, was able to punch its way effortlessly through the natural environment.
