Christie Digital Vista Control System Spyder 344 Multimedia Processor

The original version of Christie® Spyder was for edge-blended widescreen, single, and multiscreen applications, but the strength of the Christie Spyder 200/300 series is its modularity. The 200/300 series comes in 22 models packaged as 2RU or 3RU units with varying I/O combinations of up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs, as well as smaller I/O increments so you can build the system you need. All models in this series are compatible and configurable with each other. This modularity can make the 200/300 series more cost effective in configurations that don't match the Christie Spyder X20 I/O structure.
