CSI and Christie Announce Financing Solution for Digital Cinema Conversions

Today, CSI Leasing, Inc. (CSI) and Christie launched a financing solution in support of Christie’s recently announced Virtual Print Fee (VPF) program for North America. Christie’s VPF program is a simplified way for theatres to transition to digital cinema projection systems. CSI is providing a streamlined and straightforward lease structure, allowing U.S. and Canadian movie exhibitors to easily implement the VPF program.

"The exhibitors are independent businesses that need to add digital cinema to their theatres without having to share any future revenue stream. Christie and CSI understood this when developing the VPF equipment financing solution," says Bob Rinaldi, senior vice president of CSI. "We listened to many exhibitors in the U.S. and Canada about their needs and I think we hit the mark"

"The Virtual Print Fee program is a proven business model, but only if the program is simple to join, affordable and easy to operate. These are the hallmarks of the Christie VPF program, which combines Christie technical and support brilliance with the business acumen of CSI Leasing," said Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions of Christie. "We are delighted to team with CSI Leasing so that exhibitors can quickly make the transition to digital cinema and reap the benefits of the vastly improved picture quality that digital delivers."
