Christie Ramps Up Projector Production as Digital Cinema Contracts Surge Worldwide

Company Will Achieve 400% Increase in Production by End of Year
Christie Digital Systems, Inc., a leading provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, continues to significantly accelerate production of the company's popular line of Christie CP2000 DLP Cinema® projectors, the industry's most acclaimed 2K-resolution projector with 60% of all installations in theatres worldwide.

Since announcing its contract through Christie/AIX (a collaboration with Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIXD)) with U.S.-based Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC) for the installation of up to 2,300 projectors, Christie has fortified its leadership in the world's largest deployment of Digital Cinema systems. To keep pace with the demand, the Company's Canadian facility has already increased manufacturing capacity to meet the demand, putting it on target to deliver up to 400 units per month by the end of 2006 - a 400% increase in production in one year. The company plans additional expansions in the coming year as 2K-resolution DLP Cinema, the heart of the Christie CP2000, becomes the industry standard.

As part of its aggressive expansion in manufacturing capacity, Christie is also hiring additional technical and administrative staff that includes electronics, mechanical and optical engineers, technicians and industry experts. Christie has also implemented rigorous in-house educational and training programs designed to further maximize efficiency levels, streamline production, and deliver quality control standards that are among the highest in the industry. This includes an extensive global quality initiative and continuous improvements through Kaizen practices to ensure consistent conformance to customer expectations, while maintaining the highest standards of quality.

"More than any other company, Christie has anticipated, championed, and prepared for the Digital Cinema revolution," remarked Jack Kline, president and COO, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. "We have dramatically expanded our manufacturing facility and are increasing our production lines from two to six, and extensively restructuring our space and production methods to meet increased demand."

Kline added, "We have long recognized Digital Cinema as offering excellent opportunities for exhibitors; yet, more than any other provider, we have also recognized the unique challenges of incorporating the technology into current systems - or transitioning completely from film. Exhibitors need a partner who fully understands their needs-this is where our 75 years of experience becomes invaluable."

In addition to the nearly 4,000 projectors bound for North American theatres, Christie has been contracted to deliver hundreds of systems to the European and Asian markets.
