Christie® continues to satisfy market needs for near seamless video wall flat-panel solutions with today’s introduction of the versatile Christie FHD461-X. Perfectly suited for space-limited installations; signage in museums, universities, corporate spaces, broadcast sets and retail environments, as well as monitoring applications such as security and surveillance, the Christie FHD461-X is the definitive choice with its ultra-narrow (5.4 millimeter) bezel and 3-inch depth. Delivering crisp, detailed images and high brightness with full HD resolution, the Christie FHD461-X is compatible with Christie JumpStart and Christie Interactivity Kit for a complete, interactive digital experience. 

The sleek, elegant and competitively priced Christie FHD461-X has 10-bit color for richer, more vivid images, higher (4000:1) contrast ratio for deeper blacks, and a shallower depth compared with other flat panels in its category. With its LED backlighting and high pixel density for sharper, more vibrant images from any distance, the Christie FHD461-X provides the brightness, and picture clarity needed for any indoor environment. Energy efficient and ENERGY STAR® qualified, the Christie FHD461-X features low power consumption at 105W (typical) for maximum sustainability and a reduced environmental footprint.

“Every digital display installation is unique and with the Christie FHD461-X, our customers now have a 46-inch ultra-narrow bezel flat panel solution with a thin profile to fit those tighter spaces where required,” said Richard Heslett, senior product manager, Christie. “The Christie FHD461-X offers rich, superior color reproduction and high contrast ratio for an image that really jumps out at the viewer.”
