3D Digital Cinema Gains Momentum with First-Ever Showing at Large Format Conference in La

Award-Winning 3D Content Premier Event to Use Industry-Leading Christie CP2000 DLP™ Cinema Projector
Christie, first in DLP Cinema™ projection, announced that the Christie CP2000 2K resolution DLP Cinema projector will be used in a demonstration of the latest generation of 3D entertainment technology using the groundbreaking single lens system. The event, Los Angeles’ first-ever 3D presentation, will take place at this year’s Large Format Cinema Association Conference (LFCA) and Film Festival at the Universal City Hilton on April 28, from 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. It will feature award winning 3D HD Digital Cinema content, including “Bugs!”, created by Principal Large Format, which won a “Best Film of Festival” award from the LFCA.

The sponsor of the event is Crest National, an industry leader in all forms of digital media, including Large Format film, HD video and DVD/CD/SACD manufacturing. It selected the Christie CP2000 projector because it offers the highest resolution DLP Cinema technology commercially available today and is the industry’s brightest Digital Cinema projector, an important requirement for optimum viewing of large format 3D content.

“The new, single lens 3D technology has proven to be a cost-effective way to screen Large Format 3D as well as 2D content. It represents a significant advance over the present film-based systems,” noted Crest National president, Ron Stein. “When you consider that the current system typically requires a full-time projectionist who must handle 14 cans of film each weighing 60 pounds for a single screening, converting to HD digital prints, which can be shown over a server with minimal handling, is the obvious choice.”

The 3D technology, which uses a cutting-edge active eyeglass system, was unveiled by Texas Instruments (TI) at ShoWest 2005 recently. TI’s landmark presentation also used a Christie CP2000 projector and included the participation of George Lucas and Academy Award(r)-winning director James Cameron, who screened clips from their upcoming movies.

“The Christie CP2000 DLP Cinema projector continues to dominate the Digital Cinema landscape and is demonstrating its superiority in diverse applications in cinema and post-production facilities around the world,” said Vice President of Christie’s Entertainment Solutions group, Craig Sholder. “We are pleased that Crest National selected Christie projection systems as the best choice for demonstrating its high definition large format 3D Digital Cinema content.”
