ShowEast/ Hollywood, Fla.—Nov 2, 2012

Christie Demonstrates its Leadership at ShowEast as the Most Reliable and Trusted Partner for Exhibitors Facing A Rapidly Transforming Cinema Industry

Cost Effective and Financially Accessible Solutions and Services To Deliver Premium Movie Experiences to all Types of Exhibitors are Showcased by Christie
Christie® today unveiled its fall lineup of reliable and economical cinema solutions at the annual ShowEast conference held at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida. 

Leading the way and already shipping is the Christie Solaria® One, aimed at emerging markets and community theaters whose screen sizes are less than 10.6 meters (35 feet) wide. This DCI-compliant solution is the first based on Texas Instruments’ (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) recently developed S2K DLP Cinema® chipset to begin shipping in quantity.
 
“Christie is proud to offer solutions that generate positive, long-term revenues by providing customers with superior projection technologies and the very best in customer service and after-sale support,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Christie Entertainment Solutions. “From small screens to ultra-large, premium-experience screens, Christie’s presence at ShowEast is defining the industry for 2013, with solutions like Christie Solaria One and Christie Duo, as befits a thought-and technology leader in the cinema industry.”
 
In addition to comprehensive solutions on display in Christie booth #915, Christie is a co-sponsor of the International Day activities, including its Awards Luncheon on November 5, which Jack Kline, president and chief operating officer, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc., will address.
 
The Seven Zones in Christie’s Booth Showcase Choices for Exhibitors
Visitors to the Christie booth will have the opportunity to experience the firm’s cornerstone digital cinema offerings, whose scope encompasses new formats and technologies, backed by turnkey service and support for all of an exhibitor’s operations. Seven zones will amply demonstrate Christie’s commitment to be a trusted, one-stop shop for all exhibitor needs.
 
Zone 1: Christie Solaria One:
“The announcement of the high-value Christie Solaria One projector is indicative of Christie’s continuing digital cinema technology leadership, as the company advances the ‘democratization of digital’ trend that will end in all audiences across the globe having access to the finest in digital cinema and alternative content,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president,  Global and Corporate Marketing, Christie.
 
A complete projection solution for screens up to 35 feet, it comes with a zoom lens, custom-designed Xenon lamp, and a Christie Integrated Media Block (IMB) with its own easy-to-operate Screen Management Software (SMS). The Solaria One is brightest in its class, since it projects 8000 lumens in the DCI color space, 9000 for alternative content and in its Solaria One+ variation, projects 9000 lumens in the DCI color space and10,000 for alternative content. Shipping DCI compliant in November, this affordable solution confirms that now all cinemas can make the move to digital projection. It is 3D ready, HFR upgradeable and has washable/reusable filters. Combined with the premium audio and visual playback capabilities of Christie SKA-3D, exhibitors can release the full playback potential of their digital cinema investments.
 
Zone 2: Christie Duo:
Christie Duo generates twice the brightness for super large 2D or 3D screens, allowing cinema exhibitors to offer a differentiated, premium movie-going experience to their patrons. Christie Duo is a dual-projection system using patented mirror system configurations, projecting simultaneous left-eye and right-eye images, which reduces 3D switching artifacts for better and more comfortable viewing of 3D presentations. The Christie Duo integration kit can be purchased with either a 2K or 4K Christie Solaria® Series digital cinema projector or as a standalone integration kit if the exhibitor already has Christie projectors. Included in the solution is Christie DuoAlign™, an auto-calibrating image alignment software and camera kit that easily aligns the images from both projectors, within seconds, to deliver a completely seamless movie experience. Low upfront costs and no ongoing revenue sharing requirements deliver a high performance and financially accessible premium large screen movie experience that exhibitors can brand.
 
Zone 3: Christie Avias-TMS™:
The Christie® Avias-TMS™ Theater Management System (TMS) provides simple and efficient centralized management of a multiplex’s entire projection operation. An interactive TMS will be showcased at the booth.
 
Zone 4: Lamp Lounge:
Christie® Xenon lamps deliver a superior cinema experience, achieving longer life and lower operating costs than alternatives. Their brightness provides the brightest illumination possible, creating great 3D content projection. Xenon technology also affords the best image quality, producing light that is closest to natural sunlight, which in turn delivers the most life-like and natural colors. No other illumination source can produce light like that. Reliability is a given, with its natural gas element and ease of use aiding Xenon lamps to perform dependably, for a long time.
