Las Vegas—Apr 24, 2015
Chinese Laser Technology Debuts In CinemaCon 2015
he world's largest film technology conference and exhibition, CinemaCon took place this week in Las Vegas. This year's most important cinema technology event was not only dedicated to Hollywood movie releases, the catwalks on the red carpet, or the film and content production companies, but also the cutting-edge high-tech equipment maker's debut at this exhibition. The leaders in laser display technology; CFG - Appotronics Digital Cinema Technology Co. Ltd (CFG Appo) and Barco both displayed their proprietary ALPD® laser display cinema projectors at this exhibition, which drew prominent attention and applause from theatre owners and projector makers alike.
ALPD® is a disruptive laser technology offering brighter image and substantial cost savings. It significantly enhances 3D film brightness and offers a unique 3D viewing experience. Further, ALPD provides seamless support to polarized 3D systems including high gain silver screens, which enhances the moviegoer's experience in viewing 3D content up to 10 foot lambert on the screen.
ALPD® laser technology has solved the long existing RGB laser related speckle issue, which caused serious image quality and degradation. As a result, ALPD® laser technology offers a speckle free bright image with a cost efficient, reliable and compact design for the projection industry.
"ALPD® laser technology fully supports DCI standard and meets the required color performance, and its color uniformity and contrast specifications outperform all lamp based projectors. In addition the power consumption of the ALPD® laser projection system is 50% lower than Xeon and RGB laser." Thereby making ALPD the leader in industry transformation focused on the replacement of lamp based projectors.
The CEO of CFG Appo, Dr. Yi Li, shared a brief history of ALPD laser technology development during a CinemaCon press conference. It all started in Silicon Valley more than 10 years ago, where a group of scientists led by Dr. Yi Li dedicated themselves to making a breakthrough in the solid state lighting frontier, for replacing lamp based projection system. After several years of tireless efforts they succeeded in developing a laser phosphor light source which is the fundamental technology behind ALPD laser.
CFG Appo leads the cinema world into the laser age
The Chinese film industry is leading the transformation into ALPD laser technology and CFG has been in the forefront of adopting the ALPD laser projectors, thereby giving the Chinese movie goers a head start, who have already enjoyed the crispy images of laser light source for a year. Mr. Lin, General Manager of CFG, sponsored the premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" in June 2014 at China Film International Movie Club of OCT Bay in Shenzhen, China. This year CFG Appo is sponsoring the premier of "Fast & Furious 7" in Lumiere Cinema Beijing with ALPD® laser technology.
During 2015 CFG Appo plans to make retrofit installations at 300 ALPD® laser light modules at selected cinema screens nationwide in China and in 2016, it plans to substantially expand the installation of ALPD® laser technology to 3000 screens worldwide.
The cinema industry experts present at CinemaCon were very impressed by the ALPD® laser project or demonstration, one expert stated that, "ALPD® laser technology is truly a disruptive force for the projector light source, and it outdates other projection light source in just a blink of eye." CFEC, Mr. Lin Ming Jie concurred with the experts opinion and further added that he is very proud of the ALPD technology, which was created and developed in CFG Appo and has brought an enhanced movie experience to Chinese viewers, that could be duplicated in other countries soon.
Appotronics Corporation pursues the spirit of independent innovation, aimed at the development of disruptive technology, in keeping with its origins at the Silicon Valley-based YLX laboratory in 2004. It developed the innovative ALPD® laser fluorescence display technology in 2007 which is the first laser display technology to have successfully achieved industrialization and commercialization worldwide. Since launching ALPD®, Appotronics has developed a series of products which have had a profound effect on the display field, including a first laser film projector engines and its ground-breaking ALPD® technique.
