Christie Introduces New Family of Digital Cinema Projectors

Christie today introduces the innovative Christie CP series of digital cinema projectors at ShoWest 2003 – the largest international annual convention for the motion picture industry. Unlike other digital cinema solutions available today, the new Christie CP Series is based on a robust platform design that delivers the flexibility and performance necessary to address exhibitor needs in theatre venues throughout the world. The Christie CP2000 system featuring Texas Instruments’ 2K resolution DLP Cinema™ technology and the CP1200 system will be on display at Christie’s booth (#1705) during ShoWest in Las Vegas from March 3 – 6, 2003.

Designed with the Exhibitor in Mind

“All of Christie’s projection solutions speak directly to exhibitors’ requirements today and in the future. Christie is committed to providing greater value and leading-edge technology that sets new standards of quality and performance, while helping reduce exhibitors’ costs over the long run ” says Craig Sholder, senior director, business development and cinema sales.

“The innovative and cost-efficient CP Series digital cinema projection platform is easy to integrate into today’s theaters, easy to use and easy to own. Backed by more than 70 years of experience in the cinema industry, and as a member of the ITEA for over 50 years, Christie brings its renowned service, industry knowledge and proven technical expertise to meet the full range of exhibitors’ needs,” Sholder remarks.

The Christie CP Series incorporates an innovative modular design that addresses brightness and resolution requirements for a wide range of screen sizes and applications. The Christie CP2000 projector is designed to address traditional exhibitor applications and any screen size from 20ft to 75ft (6m to 23m) width. The CP1200 is ideal for applications with screen sizes up to 40ft/12m such as DLP Cinema™ digital mastering, digital intermediates and postproduction. Due to the modular design of the CP Series, the CP1200 can easily be upgraded to a CP2000 model.

All projectors include features such as the Christie LampLOC™ (Automatic Lamp Alignment), Christie LiteLoc™ to ensure constant brightness on the screen, the Christie SSM™ (System Supervisor Module) for remote system diagnostics and monitoring via Ethernet, and Christie Touch Panel Controller (TPC™), which provides system setup and control via Ethernet. Projectors support SMPTE/ATSC high definition video formats. The Christie CP Series offers connectivity in any theatre or postproduction environment. In addition, the CP Series projectors can be installed in parallel with existing film projectors and interface to the majority of theater automation systems used in exhibition worldwide.

“The CP Series was designed with the exhibitor in mind. All of the projectors provide dramatic overall reduction in system operating costs because they use less power to achieve the same brightness performance as current digital cinema projection systems,” notes D’Arcy Pickering, product manager for cinema. In addition, the two-piece design (projector and pedestal) requires no optical alignment, minimizing the time needed for setup and installation. As a result, Christie CP Series projectors can be integrated into any standard theater environment and can be operational in as little as one hour.

The Christie CP Series features Christie’s new CDXL high performance short arc Xenon lamps – optimized for digital cinema projectors – which are on average 25% brighter than standard Xenon lamps.
