Sonic Equipment Company and Christie® are pleased to announce the continuing
rollout of digital cinema conversions using Christie’s CP2210 digital cinema
The Christie CP2210 is the
most compact digital cinema projector in the world and the projector of choice
for the world’s leading post-production facilities and exhibitors where booth
space is at a premium. The first
conversion using the CP2210 will be a single screen project in Edwardsville,
Illinois. Sonic has also chosen the new,
smaller size projector for upcoming conversions in April in Wisconsin and
Missouri where smaller auditoriums make the systems more economical.
“Since we launched the Christie SolariaTM
series, exhibitor acceptance has been phenomenal and we’re pleased to be the
projector-of-choice for our valued partner, Sonic Equipment Company,” said
Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions at Christie.
“The Christie 2210 features a dual power connection to help protect the
electronics and ensure a smooth recovery in power failure situations. Another advantage with this projector is it
does not require an external exhaust system, while it delivers optimum ‘in
warranty’ hours for its bulbs,” noted Mike Covey, Production Manager at Sonic
Equipment. Jonathan Thompson, Senior
Sales Manager at Sonic added “This projector is a great solution for the smaller
screen markets, which are the pride of Sonic’s customer base.”
The Kneisley “Kube” was created for use with the CP2210 when Sonic met
a unique challenge from one of its exhibitor customers. Identical to the traditional Kneisley
pedestal in features and quality, the “Kube” was designed because the cinema
was ready to convert, but only had a projection room space of 5’11”, and they
knew they would be using the CP2210. “It’s
so light I was even able to help carry it, unlike the other pedestals,” commented
Kasey Shay of Sonic Equipment Company. With
this pedestal, the cinema has the ability to position the rack mounting on the “Kube”
in multiple ways in the booth. Included
is a rack-mounted shelf for the cinema player.
“The best feature is the space saving footprint,” stated Joe Carver,
Manager at Kneisley Manufacturing Company.
The new “KUBE” is available through your local Kneisley dealer.
Sonic looks forward to continuing to move forward throughout 2011, and
staying at the forefront of the industry.
