Christie Wins DSE 2017 APEX Gold Award for Star Wars: The Force Awakens Red Carpet World Premiere

Christie®, a leader in creating and delivering the world's best visual and audio experiences, is pleased to announce that it has won the DSE 2017 APEX Gold Award in the Arts, Entertainment & Recreation category for its installation at the Star Wars®: The Force Awakens™ Red Carpet World Premiere.
The Christie team provided technical consultation at every stage of the installation, from concept creation, to pre-staging, onsite setup and delivery. To ensure this specific live setup went well and faced with an aggressive timeline, Christie pre-configured and staged much of the equipment in the company’s Cypress, California headquarters days beforehand. Christie’s Pandoras Box Media Servers powered a variety of displays including 388 Christie® MicroTiles® that formed a backdrop to the red carpet walkway and 18 Christie LCD panels that graced the red carpet and photo locations throughout the premiere.

“Christie is proud to accept the DSE 2017 APEX Gold Award in the Arts, Entertainment & Recreation category for the installation at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Red Carpet World Premiere featuring our projection technologies,” said Sean James, vice president, Christie Global Professional Services. “This DSE 2017 APEX Award is a testament to Christie’s commitment to customers around the world to create visually compelling experiences.”
The 14th Annual DSE APEX Awards were created to recognize and honor achievement in the installation of digital displays and interactive technology and the creation of compelling viewer content, the DSE APEX Awards have honored hundreds of companies for their innovation throughout the years.
