AUTHOR: Inavate

Christie has been awarded six industry awards in as many weeks: three for its large venue projection, two for MicroTiles and one in corporate.

Firstly, Christie captured top spot in Pro AV magazine’s annual Brand Leader survey, winning the Large Venue Projector category for the second consecutive year.
Then, the Christie Roadie HD+35K earned InfoComm’s Best Video Projector/High Lumen category award from Rental and Staging Systems magazine. Mark Ouwerkerk, territory sales manager at Christie, accepted the third award for Christie's large venue projectors.  The Live Design Projector of the Year award was presented on May 24 for the Christie HD10K-M. The HD10K-M, with its expanded lens suite, is the most compact in its class and delivers 10,000 ANSI lumens for crisp and detailed images while using less power. Presented annually in New York City, the award winners are chosen by a panel of projection designers and programmers.
On May 17, Christie MicroTiles earned the prestigious Janus de l’Industrie Award from the French Institute of Design (Institut Francais du Design) – France’s coveted design label – for outstanding creative products in the field of industrial design. 
At InfoComm 2010, System Contractor News and InfoComm Internationala presented Christie MicroTiles with the Most Innovative Video Display Product award.
Finally, the company was recognised with a Green AV award at the inaugural 2010 InfoComm 100 conference, This is the second time the company has been recognised for its environmental initiatives so far this year. In early 2010, Christie was named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers by MediaCorp.
