Christie 6P Laser Projection System Earning Plaudits at National Infantry Museum’s Giant Screen Theater

Christie laser projection and revamped auditorium significantly expand museum’s content range while creating technologically advanced, multi-purpose space
The Christie® and D3D Cinema upgrade from film to 6P laser  projection at the National Infantry Museum’s Giant Screen Theater in Columbus, Georgia is earning applause from the public, school groups, veterans and active duty service members.

Installed by AV industry pioneer D3D Cinema, the two Christie Solaria CP42LH 6P laser projectors enable the theater to show a range of 3D content and Hollywood blockbusters – as well as alternative content and live events – to better align the theater with the museum’s mission of providing guests with an immersive experience of the United States Army Infantry’s valorous history.
 
Operated by the non-profit National Infantry Museum Foundation, which built and manages the facility and its content through a partnership with the U.S. Army, the museum’s Giant Screen Theater is one of the largest in the Southeast, and the third in the United States to feature Christie 6P laser projection.  
 
Delivering 4K resolution and an immersive experience on the 40-foot tall by 72-foot wide theater screen, two Christie CP42LH laser projectors produce a proprietary mix of photoptically-optimized light wavelengths for each eye directly from the source, in effect eliminating the need for a highly inefficient stage of filtering or polarizing the light as it leaves the projector. This results in vastly improved 3D light levels, image uniformity, viewing comfort, and an enhanced sense of immersion.
 
Future proofing with affordable Christie 6P laser
When the project received the green light, the Foundation wanted a Christie 4K Xenon lamp-based solution. However, after seeing the D3D installation of Christie laser at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas, the Foundation, working with D3D and Christie, realized laser was not only within budget but would provide a longer life and lower cost of ownership. 

“Thanks to Christie’s unique system architecture, we were able to design a system that enabled the National Infantry Foundation to bring laser projection into their facility at a cost that was within their budget – while also allowing them to easily grow and refresh the system as needed in the years to come,” said Derek Threinen, Vice President, Film Distribution and Business Development at D3D.   
 
“They now have a system that blows away the old system in terms of flexibility and functionality, while surpassing the previous visual and aural experience for their guests – and it does it all vastly-reduced operational cost. This impressive technology delivers those ‘you are there’ immersive experiences, while also allowing exhibitors to take advantage of a much wider variety of content to provide unique ‘out of home’ experiences in their theater.” 
 
Threinen said the modular nature of the Christie system means that even if the desired light levels evolve in the future to beyond what is on screen now, the museum – and any other customer considering Christie laser – can simply add light modules to increase the brightness on screen. 
 
“And that is something no other manufacturer can offer. It’s an inherent advantage to the Christie system,” Threinen continued. “With the Christie modules being independently chilled, the modules can be easily replaced when they eventually begin to age or if there is ever a problem. Unlike other systems, you are still on screen with Christie, rather than having the whole system go down, causing lost shows and revenue."  
 
Honoring the Infantry and wowing audiences
“From a picture quality standpoint and ‘wow’ factor, laser was it,” said Jordan Beck, Creative Director and Special Event/Alternative Content Producer, National Infantry Museum Foundation. “With it, we can provide a spectacle that you can’t get anywhere else. The Christie laser technology provides our audiences a truly immersive visual experience that tells our story in a more compelling way, while also giving us access to a more extensive range of meaningful content that was not available before.”
 
“The audiences that knew our previous system are blown away by what they now see. And our new audiences just seem happier when they leave the theater,” said Beck. He reflected on his own experience when he saw the laser projection system in action for the first time, “I was thrilled – just absolutely thrilled. The active 3D package is absolutely spectacular. We’re very pleased with the results.”
 
“Christie is very proud to play an integral role in helping the National Infantry Museum Foundation achieve its mission of illuminating the achievements and bravery of America’s Infantry throughout history,” said Kathryn Cress, Vice President, Global & Corporate Marketing, Christie. “D3D’s expertise and Christie’s laser projection technology can help institutions of all kinds tap into the huge possibilities of digital technology.”
 
D3D Cinema was the first to install a permanent laser installation on a giant screen – at Moody Gardens – with a Christie 6P laser system.
