Visitors can be the first to preview the new Christie Pandoras Box 6.0 and Widget Designer, as well as see the Christie Spyder X20, a firm favourite with broadcasters. Hall 9, meeting rooms 9.MS71, 9.MS72, 9.MS73.
 
EMEA first showing: Ang Lee’s new film at 120 frames per second, 3D, 4K, with 6P laser brightness
Monday’s keynote by multi-award-winning director Ang Lee (Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain) will be the first time in EMEA that clips of Ang Lee’s new film from TriStar Pictures, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016) can be seen in 120 frames per second, 3D, 4K, in 6P laser brightness. Christie has the only projection solution in the world that can show such a high frame rate and resolution in 3D, thanks to its Christie TruLife™ platform – with a proprietary, 1.2 Gigapixel per second, floating point architecture.
 
Julian Pinn, Executive Producer, IBC Big Screen Experience said: “There is no finer keynote presenter for this year’s IBC Big Screen Experience than Ang Lee and we are very honoured to be hosting him. For over two decades, Ang Lee has shown true mastery in utilising cutting-edge science and cinematographic techniques towards his creation of some of the very finest works of cinematic story-telling art.”
 
The revolutionary new cinematographic technique utilised unlocks a new level of story-telling power and emotional connection with the on-screen characters. Additionally, it offers greater control over preserving artistic integrity over the increasing range of delivery formats both within cinema and to the wider electronic entertainment market.
