crop[1]Christie Digital Systems, based in Kitchener, Ont., provided interactive visual technologies for the University of Toronto’s (U of T’s) Gerstein Science Information Centre innovation lab when the facility hosted Smartweek in late October.

The event brought industry leaders and inventors together to discuss the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. As the innovation lab sponsor, Christie supplied 24 of its MicroTile digital signage ‘cubes’ to form a video wall (pictured), Jumpstart content management software, a multi-touch interactivity kit, two 1.7-m (65-in.) liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and one 2.2-m (85-in.) flat panel.

“We are grateful for Christie’s technology support,” said Smartweek co-founder Helen Kontzopoulos, “which lets us showcase creative, interactive digital content to illustrate, to potential funders, the type of computer science department U of T envisions for students and industry researchers. Our aim is to make the university, Toronto and Canada a pole star for the IoT, where great minds with big ideas make things happen.”
