Time Warner Chooses Christie CP2000 Digital Cinema Projector

Christie Projector at Executive Screening Theater in New York City is an Integral Part of Multi-Functional Media and Entertainment Center
Christie, a leading provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, announced the installation of the Christie CP2000 2K resolution digital cinema projector at the new Time Warner screening theater at Columbus Circle in New York City. The state-of-the-art audio/visual facility, featuring a 175-seat auditorium with a 30-foot screen, is used for screenings of cinema presentations, diverse digital, video and film content, live feed and special events. Time Warner selected Christie following the lead of Warner Bros. Studios, Hollywood, which has standardized on Christie CP2000 digital cinema projectors.

The Christie CP2000 projector is part of Christie's comprehensive line of digital cinema solutions and offers versatility with various video formats and computer inputs. It was the first 2K resolution DLP Cinema projector to be installed in a commercial venue in North America.

"The Christie CP2000 digital projector can display anything Time Warner is doing media-wise, including feed from CNN, which is housed in the same building. Whether it is digital content, news conferences, direct feed or live feeds, the Christie CP2000 can handle it," declared Emil Poggi, vice president of engineering, Rydt Entertainment Systems. The company was responsible for the design, engineering and oversight of the installation. It also supplied all the projection equipment.

TechnoMedia Solutions, which is responsible for the overall audio and visual systems for Time Warner Corporate, noted that company executives wondered whether the image quality of digital projection could match that of high-end 35mm film projection. "The Christie CP2000 projector performed beautifully, with no discernible difference in the images on the screen versus traditional film," said Mike Carroll, senior projector manager, TechnoMedia Solutions, and consultant to Time Warner. "The overwhelming response was that the image projected by the Christie CP2000 matched film quality."

"The Christie CP2000 projector displays the best cinema experience available commercially today, with the highest possible resolution and color rendition, reproducing the effect of film at the highest level of digital projection," commented Scott Freidberg, director of cinema sales, Christie USA. "We are pleased to add Time Warner to our growing list of major organizations worldwide that are recognizing the versatility and quality performance of Christie digital cinema projectors."

About the Christie CP2000
The Christie CP2000 series is part of Christie's comprehensive line of digital cinema solutions and represents the next evolution in digital cinema exhibition. All projectors include features such as the Christie LampLOC (Automatic Lamp Alignment), Christie LiteLOC to ensure constant brightness on the screen, and the Christie System Supervisor Module (SSM) for system diagnostics and monitoring via the projector's Touch Panel Controller (TPC). For secure remote diagnostics and system monitoring, the CP2000 works with a ChristieNET networking solution and the TPC or existing server with TPC. Christie's digital cinema projectors support progressive SMPTE/ATSC high definition video formats.
