Christie provides panels for virtual cadaver room at Moravian College
Christie recently deployed two LCD panels and 11 DHD599-GS laser phosphor projectors at the Moravian College Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Center for Health Sciences in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Christie installed the LCD panels in the school's theater-style virtual cadaver room to give students a closer view of procedures performed on a mannequin lying on a table, according to a press release.
"There are only so many people who can stand around the table but it has a video output so you can show it on an external display, which is the two Christie panels," said Craig Underwood, director of media services at Moravian College. "We're the only ones in the area that actually have a virtual cadaver lab and we wanted to make it the best it could possibly be."
The projectors were installed in classrooms by Advanced AV. The lampless projectors provide better color accuracy and require less maintenance by the college's own AV team.
"Having integrated many, many Christie products in the past, we felt very confident with presenting this projection solution to Moravian to meet their expectations," Advanced AV General Manager Mike Morgan said in the release. "With the new laser phosphor technology, we minimize the cost and labor associated with lamp-based projectors. We’re talking about 11 new projection systems on campus and Craig mentioned he has a staff of two right now so running around changing lamps becomes more difficult as they get more projectors on campus."
