"The first time we saw modules MicroTiles was in NAB 2014" recalls Camilo Aranguren, director of AVCOM Colombia, a provider of technology solutions for the television market, professional audio and lighting that has offices in Miami , Caracas and Bogota.

"From that moment we knew that this product was what I was looking for Caracol TV as due to the size of the MicroTiles was the system that best matched the possibility of making a curved screen borderless. Is a system that provides high quality image and a color and extraordinary shine "adds Aranguren.

Combining the best of the DLP projection and LED, Christie MicroTiles technology is able to provide images of a remarkably superior brightness and a color palette much wider than conventional plasma screens and LCD TVs. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles can generate a virtually continuous wall display.

In addition, the lightness (9,2 kg) and shallow (260 mm) of the MicroTiles cubes allows flexible facilities that integrate seamlessly into any environment and can be adapted even in major TV studios with space restrictions.

"The MicroTiles are ideal for mounting creative stage design in television sets as they can be stacked and grouped in forms and most innovative sizes, and redesign later to create completely new configurations," says Jorge Garcia, sales manager of Christie in Latin America. They also have the security that they are always ready to deliver in seconds, for its permanent automatic calibration does not require specialized adjustments to be seen clearly on the screen.
