Christie Delivers Next-Generation Digital Projectors

A leader in digital cinema projection technologies, Christie, will debut its next-generation digital cinema solutions, the Christie Solaria series, at ShowEast with the launch of the Christie CP2220 digital cinema projector.
Recognised as "the future of digital cinema", the projector features Texas Instruments' next generation DLP Cinema technology and an optional integrated 2K/4K media block. Christie's next-generation 4K digital cinema projectors will display 4096 x 2160 pixels of resolution. While maintaining support for 2K external servers, these new models allow exhibitors to easily project 2K or 4K content, giving them the widest choice in digital cinema options. The Christie CP2220 will be on display with a Doremi integrated media block at the Christie stand 1100.
The Christie CP2220 is the first in the new series of digital cinema projectors that also includes the Christie CP2210 and the Christie CP2230. The Christie CP4220 and the Christie CP4230, also introduced in June, are the company's premium 4K projectors and are among the brightest in the world - like the 2230, the 4230 is capable of delivering over 30,000 lumens on the largest screens and delivers breathtaking 3D images, All next-generation Christie digital cinema projectors continue to utilise Christie Brilliant3D technology providing the ultimate 3D experience with the lowest cost of operation.
Craig Sholder, Vice President of Entertainment Solutions at Christie, said: "Christie is committed to supporting its customers today and in the future. That's the primary driver behind our 2K and 4K-ready solutions. We've expanded our line-up of industry-preferred digital cinema solutions to provide the most flexibility for exhibitors - offering them the ultimate freedom to choose from the widest range of 2K or 4K resolution projectors, as well as providing them with the choice of either an external or integrated media block. Unlike other proprietary solutions, Christie technology is designed to work with all external cinema servers and will continue to work with companies that offer integrated media blocks. We understand how important it is for exhibitors to safeguard their long-term technology investment. With Christie, exhibitors are assured they have a future-proof solution that can meet their needs both today and tomorrow."
Brian Claypool, Senior Product Manager, Entertainment Solutions for Christie, said: "Christie's experience with the 1.2" DLP Cinema Chip on our current mid and high power products has given us an advantage over the competition on developing next generation 2K and 4K technology. In fact, the 4K DLP Cinema Chip is very similar to the current 1.2" products and not available in the smaller chip format used by other manufacturers in their mid power projectors.
"At ShowEast, the industry will see the world's first Series II 2K 1.2" DLP Cinema projector designed around a fast and cost-effective 4K upgrade. Only Christie's DLP Cinema solutions have been tested and proven with the most installations worldwide and an unmatched 99.999% reliability rating."
All projectors in the Christie Solaria series are designed to meet Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) specifications. They feature a new modular architecture for improved serviceability and ease of maintenance, with up to 25% lower cost of operation than competing technologies.
Recognised for their superior light output capabilities, Christie digital cinema projectors have once again been selected to screen all major studio releases at AMC Theatres during ShowEast.
Also at ShowEast, Christie will present the latest version of ChristieACT. Designed to provide true integration of theatre operations, ChristieACT features pre-programmable sequencing, built-in device libraries and web-based integration. With ChristieACT, exhibitors can now control entire booth operations from the palm of their hand.
