AVoIP Case Study: Expo 2020 Dubai EOC

Christie Boxers and Terra work together at the core of the system

The video walls are a crucial part of the Expo 2020 Dubai Operations Centre, showcasing data that is crucial for the EOC team to be able to make decisions in response to ongoing events across the Expo site. Christie’s contribution to this crucial part of our technology infrastructure is part of a wider partnership that includes the group’s 252 high-quality RGB laser projectors bringing Al Wasl dome – the beating heart of the Expo site and home to the world’s largest 360-degree projection surface – to life.”

The Christie Boxers are running in Ultra High Definition widescreen (16:9) mode and each video wall can be split into different combinations of separate smaller screens including 2×2 and 3×3. The Christie Terra processing equipment includes over 100 transmitters and receivers, as well as five controllers managing the different layouts. This set up ensures seamless switching between the multiple layouts and simple and intuitive connection to the myriad sources. The combination of projection and Christie Terra as a single platform for signal distribution, video processing and remote control has provided Expo 2020 with the huge, high-resolution digital canvases needed, while keeping costs within budget.

Christie Professional Services is on hand to support the Expo Operations Centre with around the clock technical support and service response through Christie’s own Network Operations Center.  Christie’s Middle East service center and valued system integration partners will also play a pivotal role in supporting the EOC. A dedicated team of highly-skilled Christie service engineers will be onsite to provide prompt emergency repair and resolution, ensuring Expo’s display solutions continue to work flawlessly through the duration of mega-event and beyond.

“As our Official Projection and Display Partner, Christie is able to meet the specifications and stringent selection criteria that we have set to ensure the highest possible standards for our events, shows and other key audio-visual experiences.” –Mohammed Alhashmi, Chief Technology Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai
