Cannes Film Festival 2009 Official Selection:

94% of Feature Films Screened Using Christie Projectors
Christie is delighted to announce that as the technical D-Cinema partner to the Cannes Film Festival for the third year running, there is a huge increase in movies being screened using the digital format. Out of the 53 features showing at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival, the Official Selection for the Cannes Film Festival 2009 has revealed that at least 50 will be screened digitally compared to 20 screened digitally in 2007 and 37 in 2008.
 
Jack Kline, President and COO for Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. remarked: “We are pleased to see the progress of D-Cinema in the motion picture industry, as shown by the digital movies which are part of the Official Selection. And we’re delighted by the continued trust displayed by XDC, the Festival’s technical D-Cinema partner, and CST, the representative organization of cinema professionals in France responsible for the technical operation of Cannes. Both have opted for Christie as their technical partner supplying the digital projection solutions for the Festival for the third year running.”
 
Christie will provide over 19 projectors for the world’s leading film festival, including:
 
-For the Official Competition, seven Christie 2K DLP Cinema® projectors will be installed in the following auditoriums: Lumière, Debussy, Bazin, Buñuel, 60th Anniversary Theatre and the Beach Cinema.
 
-For the Film Market, three Christie 2K DLP Cinema projectors will be installed in Bory and Lerins2 auditoriums and auditorium J, while nine Christie high definition DLP® standard projectors will equip the other HD video rooms.
 
-Finally, one 2K digital control room will be installed in the Palais des Festivals in order to check the digital copies. 
  
Kline continued: “As the most recognized film festival in the world, Cannes has a major cultural influence on the industry globally, reflecting the current technical, technological and commercial trends.  It’s a fact that the digital format and the number of theatres equipped for digital projection is progressing very rapidly.”
 
XDC will implement its Cinestore Solo G3 server in all the auditoria and will be collaborating with XpanD, an expert in 3D presentations, which will be given top billing this year at the world preview of “Up”, Pixar/Disney’s new animated comedy adventure, which will open this year’s Festival.
 
“Up” will be premiered using a Christie CP2000-SB projector with built-in Christie Brilliant3D™ innovative technology, which enhances brightness while reducing operating costs via a single lens system, which is ideal for 3D projections.  In addition to increased brightness compared to previous systems, this technology allows exhibitors to present 3D movies on their largest screens while reducing their lamp and power costs. The Christie CP2000-XB, CP2000-SB, CP2000-M and CP2000-ZX were amongst the first products equipped with the Brilliant3D technology
