New Motorised Lens Mount Available For All Christie Digital Cinema Projectors

Christie, a leader in digital cinema projection, has announced the introduction of a motorised lens mount solution that is fully compatible with all Christie DLP Cinema 1.2 DMD based projectors.
The Christie motorised lens mount solution consists of a lens mount, motors and downloadable software, allowing theatres to easily and reliably change between flat and scope screen formats with a single lens set-up. It is designed to automatically adjust offset, focus and zoom, making it the most accurate and convenient solution on the market.
With the growing popularity of 3D digital cinema, the motorised lens mount is also designed to work hand-in-hand with Christie's new Brilliant3D technology, the first technology in the industry to significantly increase projector performance and image brightness. The entire reflective surface of the DMD chip is used to produce crisper and clearer images, providing the ultimate 3D movie viewing experience.
Available in May 2009, Christie will offer a motorised lens mount upgrade kit that is compatible with any previously deployed Christie CP2000 series projector. The motorised lens mount is also available as an optional feature on all newly purchased Christie CP2000 projectors. The Christie CP2000-M projector has a motorised lens mount system built in and does not require an upgrade kit.
The Christie motorised lens mount system has been rigorously tested to ensure minimum drift and the highest accuracy when switching between flat and scope screen formats. The company is also offering new lenses designed to eliminate the need for additional auxiliary lenses to accommodate the unattended changeover requirement of the DCI specification.
The motorised lens represents the ultimate in convenience and reliability, giving management more options to optimise their stand operations. Brian Claypool, Senior Product Manager, Christie Entertainment Solutions, said: "It reflects Christie's ongoing commitment to provide the best performing., easiest to use projection system in the industry."
The motorised lens mount is compatible with all existing and new Christie zoom lenses. It will also accommodate a new series of fixed prime lenses coming into the market.
Christie's new motorised lens mount will be premiered at ShoWest (March 30 - April 2, Las Vegas) on Stand: 1705.
