CineAsia 2016/Hong Kong—Dec 6, 2016

Christie Delivers Brilliant Showcase of Complete and Groundbreaking Cinema Solutions at CineAsia 2016

Christie®, a leader in creating and sharing the world’s best visual and audio experiences, is demonstrating its technological leadership with a brilliant showcase of complete cinema solutions at CineAsia 2016, taking place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, December 6-8.
 
The prestigious event, which brings together professionals from across the film industry, including cinema owners, suppliers, film buyers and distributors, is the only Pan-Asian convention dedicated to the cinema exhibition and distribution communities in the region. At booth #201, Christie is presenting a comprehensive lineup of its latest offerings, including new groundbreaking cinema projection technologies, as well as innovative audio and lobby solutions that offer the best and the most complete cinematic experience to movie-goers.
 
“As the innovator and leader of the most advanced cinema technologies chosen by award-winning filmmakers and leading cinema chains around the world, we are proud to showcase our latest and most complete cinema solutions to all guests at this year’s CineAsia, including a preview of our new groundbreaking projection technologies,” said Lin Yu, Vice President, Christie Asia Pacific. “Christie has made great strides in areas such as RGB laser projection and is the only projector manufacturer able to screen Director Ang Lee’s new film in an unprecedented format. I’m confident that the stellar lineup of featured products will continue to strengthen our position as the pioneer and global leader of visual and audio technologies.”
 
New Projector and Preview of Lasers to Come
Created specifically for the burgeoning Chinese market, Christie is proud to launch the
CP2308-C, lamp-based projector, which will be displayed in the Christie booth. A high-value digital cinema projector, capable of projecting 9,000 DCI lumens, the CP2308-C comes with an integrated DCI playback engine, built-in automation features, and a new, more user-friendly UX design interface. Perfect for cinemas with smaller screens, this unit will support alternative content sources through dual HDMI ports (along with the integrated DCI playback engine, supporting DCI cinema and streaming content). 

Unique to Christie’s digital cinema projection lineup, the CP2308-C is the first available product to boast Christie’s latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform
 
Alongside the CP2308-C in Christie booth #201 will be a technology preview of a digital-cinema laser projector, boasting a much higher efficiency than RGB lasers used in current cinemas. Also based on Christie’s latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform, this RGB laser projector has no need for sub-ambient cooling (i.e., no ‘chillers’ required) in a compact form factor, all-in-one design. Providing superior color, higher contrast, a future-proof design and low maintenance, this is the forerunner of a laser-projection solution that will prove to be an ideal replacement product for aging Series 1 and early Series 2 projectors.
 
Dazzling Lineup of Christie Vive Audio and Cinema Corridor Solutions
Another highlight at the booth is Christie Vive Audio, the world’s first audio system featuring  Christie’s innovative wall and ceiling surround speakers, which are powered by unique, ribbon-driver technology in a parabolic line array design, purposely built for the cinema environment. Products showcased in Christie’s booth include the LS1 line source loudspeakers, LS2S surround speakers and S218 subwoofer, which are set up for audio demonstrations that complement the stunning visuals projected utilizing a new RGB laser projector that we are previewing.
   
The Christie Vive Audio system provides a hyper-accurate audio experience and unlocks the full dynamic range of the DCI digital cinema audio and supports leading formats such as Dolby® Atmos™, Dolby Atmos, 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound. Featuring planar ribbon driver technology with its low distortion and superior transient response characteristics, the LS Series screen channels at the booth are single-enclosure designs ideal for most 5.1 and 7.1 distributed sound applications. Christie Vive Audio system continues to establish its reputation worldwide as the next standard in immersive sound for cinema.
 
Visitors can also check out the inventive “Christie Corridor” – a full-sized immersive cinema passageway similar to those found in contemporary theater complexes. Designed by the Christie 360 team to enhance customers’ pre-show experience, it comprises large extended screens displaying an array of cinema-related contents using Christie Captiva Series ultra short throw projectors and Christie Pandoras Box media players.
 
Rounding out the impressive showcase is the display of Christie Xenolite lamps that offer extreme reliability, consistency and long lamp life paired with Christie Solaria® Series projection solutions. Utilizing the latest in Xenon lamp technology to provide increased brightness, improved stability and a longer life span, Christie’s Superior Performance (SP) Xenolite lamps offers more captivating 2D and 3D experiences, without a cost to overall lamp performance.
