Christie is part of the American Red Cross’ “Prepare SoCal” campaign, which aims to prepare Southern California businesses and households for natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and other emergencies. Christie contributed four Christie LWU420 3LCD digital projectors for the American Red Cross’ Orange County Region Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to provide real-time emergency information during disasters. The American Red Cross Orange County EOC serves three counties (Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino), an area that would affect 453,000 businesses and 4.5 million workers if there was a large disaster. Known as a first responder in many natural disasters around the world, the American Red Cross is launching the renovated center as part of its “Prepare SoCal” initiative, which involves improving its local disaster response capacity, training more volunteers, and strengthening links with neighborhood and other community organizations. The EOC will be the hub of activity in any emergency and linked with public health, emergency service, and other government agencies to provide vital information. The EOC suite, including the EOC and Room #213, is a 2,170-square-foot facility, not including technical support space. In addition, there are also two classrooms that have additional voice and data capability and can be quickly converted as a call center or support space, and another 120 square foot communications room with telephone, radio, and satellite capabilities to provide emergency communications support for the EOC. After the installation, support for the projectors will be delivered by Spinitar, a full-service AV company headquartered in Orange County that is a Christie-certified audiovisual supplier.

The Christie LWU420 is packed with premium features such as inorganic 3LCD light engine, H/V lens shift, and pro AV connectivity.
