Christie Blazes Trail for 3-Chip DLP Applications at 10th Anniversary of Texas Instruments' Revolutionary Technology

A History of "Firsts" Utilizing TI's Innovative DLP Chip Have Set the Standard for the Projection Industry
Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, has been recognized as one of the most innovative manufacturers of projection systems, consistently setting the standards by being the first to market some of the world's most advanced projectors utilizing Texas Instruments' groundbreaking 3-Chip DLP technology. Among its notable achievements, Christie shipped the world's first commercially-available 3-chip DLP projector, the Christie VistaPRO in 1996.

Since then, Christie has continued its tradition of breaking new ground with many subsequent product introductions based on DLP technology. In 1998, Christie was the first to market a purpose-built, 3-Chip DLP XGA resolution projector that also operated on 110 volt power, the Christie VistaGRAPHX. In the same year, Christie introduced the first purpose-built, high brightness projector for the rental/staging market, the popular Christie Roadie series.

In 2000, Christie became Texas Instruments' first DLP Cinema licensee and introduced the first commercial DLP Cinema projector, the Christie CP2000. This led to the first 2K Digital Cinema projector, a Christie CP2000, to be installed in a commercial venue in North America at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Today, the Christie CP2000 is recognized as the preferred choice by Hollywood, post-production facilities and high-end entertainment venues. The Christie CP2000 is installed in more D-Cinema theatres than any other system worldwide.

The company also launched the first 3-Chip DLP projector designed for mission critical, command and control room operations, the Christie DLV1280-DX, in 2000. A year later, it achieved a number of additional market and technology "firsts" in quick succession, including the first DLP Cinema projector to be used in a Japanese post-production studio; the first to ship a 3-chip DLP projector capable of true digital processing in a stereo output signal; and in April 2006, Christie introduced the brightest, single-phase power, 3-chip DLP projector offering 20,000 ANSI lumens - the Christie Roadster S+20K.

Today, as Texas Instruments celebrates their 10 anniversary of DLP, Christie announced yet another industry first utilizing TI's DLP technology - the introduction of the world's first native 1920x1080 HD 3-chip DLP family of projectors. The Christie HD series includes the Christie HD12K, Christie HD8K, Christie HD8Kc, Christie HD5K and the Christie HD5Kc.

"Christie is a true pioneer in the projection industry. Texas Instruments is a true pioneer in delivering their brilliant DLP technology - a technology that has stood the test of time," noted Jack Kline, President and COO, Christie USA.

Kline continued, "We have consistently set the pace of innovation and raised the standards of excellence. Our impact has been significant in many professional markets, including rental/staging, corporate venues, houses of worship, control room, virtual reality, simulation, and cinema exhibition. We are committed to providing our customers with state-of-the-art technology, backed by superior service and technical support that maximize their investments and provide them with a competitive edge."
