"As educational institutions align themselves to achieve India’s vision to become a world leader in science and technology that in turn ushers in greater economic growth, there has been a strong demand for display technologies to transform the learning environment," said Rishubh Nayar, sales director for India, Enterprise, Christie. "Thanks to our strong track record in delivering high-performance, versatile and flexible display systems, we have seen an uptick in the deployment of our laser projection and LED solutions by tertiary institutions over the last 12 months."

They are perfect for high-usage environments such as education," he said.
To provide clients with complete peace of mind, Nayar added that Christie’s aftersales service and repair center for projectors and LED tiles in its Bangalore office has a team of highly qualified technicians who can carefully restore equipment to working order, extending the life of the products.
