Details Released on Christie Brio Wireless Room System

Brio1-0713The Christie Brio is a totally wireless room system that allows up to five people to share their LCD or projection screens simultaneously. The output of Brio is two 2560×1600 (dual-link DVI-D — but can be converted to DisplayPort or HDMI) and stereo audio on 3.5 mm connectors. Inputs include up to two wired connections, five wireless inputs (from any resolution computer from 640×480 to 2560×1600 resolution), audio and all of it integrates support for HDCP.

Using Gigabit Ethernet, Christie’s Brio supports all major network protocols including IGMPv2, IPv4, IPv6, RTSP, SRTP, HTTP, TCP/IP and all wireless network streams are output at H.265 video at 30Hz. The five wireless devices are processed as network video streams @ 30Hz up to 20 Mbps per video stream.

One interesting feature of Brio that most of the other wireless room systems don’t have is the ability to connect remotely — one of the five network connection can come in remotely from another site. It also offers interactivity — the two displays at the front of the room can be multi-touch touch screens. All participants can use the interactive whiteboard to share and draw in realtime,regardless of geographic locations. Typically, one of the screens would play the content in full-screen mode while the second screen would be used to show the other four screens.
