The MicroTiles video display system from Christie Digital is composed of modular 16" × 12" (408 mm × 306 mm) rear-projection cube units that can be built together into a large video wall-style display. Each MicroTile unit contains a short-throw projector based on an LED light source and DLP optical imaging. The picture is formed onto the detachable front screen surface.
Because of the building-block nature of the system, the configuration of the overall screen area and shape is flexible, leading to simple traditional rectangular displays, and more complex non-standard shapes.
Every MicroTile unit has sensors on each side that detect whether there is another unit next to it, allowing the display controller to automatically determine the tile layout and the size and magnification of the video picture to be displayed across the screen area.
The MicroTiles system has design features for simple installation and setup that minimizes the need for detailed configuration of the screens and display controller.
