CinemaCon 2017/Las Vegas, NV—Mar 27, 2017

Christie Provides Sneak Preview of Direct-Coupled RGB Laser Projector from the Christie Freedom Series at CinemaCon 2017

All-in-one design and advanced electronics foundation will make the CP4325-RGB the laser projector of choice among mainstream cinemas
In its latest display of technological leadership in the cinema market, Christie® will preview at CinemaCon (Milano room) the CP4325-RGB – an ‘all in one’ RGB laser projector in the Christie Freedom Series – boasting an innovative design that delivers significantly higher efficiency than lasers utilized in current cinemas.
 
Based on the Christie CineLifeTM Series 3 electronics platform – which also underpins the newly-announced Christie CP2308 lamp-based projector – theCP4325-RGB will be an easy-to-operate RGB laser projector, as well as being simple to install. With a design that eliminates the current need for sub-ambient cooling, this compact unit will also provide a vast palette of colors, higher contrast ratios and low maintenance costs.
 
The CP4325-RGB is the forerunner of a line of Christie RGB laser projection solutions intended for mainstream cinema applications and as such is an ideal replacement product for aging Series 1 and early installations of Series 2 projectors, as well as for new-build cinemas and those due for retrofits.
 
The Christie CineLifeTM platform powering the CP4325-RGB and indeed Christie’s entire, expanding line of DCI-compliant projectors is manufactured, designed and integrated by the company. Featuring a streamlined UX-inspired interface, Christie CineLife simplifies the playback, scheduling and management of cinema content. Field tested on more than 100 screens since 2014 with the next-generation Christie IMB, the CineLife Series 3 electronics also provides backwards compatibility with other Series 2 IMB manufacturers.
 
“Projection forms an important component of the complete cinema experience that Christie delivers to the global exhibitor community, as well as being a critical part of the workflow that award-winning filmmakers require to deliver immersive, awe-inspiring movies,” said Jennifer Smith, executive vice president, Global Market Solutions & Engineering, Christie. “As such, Christie continues to make great strides in RGB laser projection and is pleased to show its exhibitor and studio partners a sneak preview of what will become the gold standard for laser-illuminated projection in the near future.”
 
One-Two Punch of Fiber-and-Direct Coupled Christie laser projectors continues to dazzle
With the addition at the end of 2017 of the Christie CP4325-RGB solution, Christie Freedom Series projectors will be available in two unique platforms, as DCI-compliant solutions for mainstream cinemas, giant screens and Premium Large Format (PLF) theatres looking to offer guests a riveting and captivating cinematic experience. 
 
Christie Freedom Series fiber-coupled RGB laser projector
The current Christie Freedom Series CP42LH fiber-coupled RGB laser projector is the ideal solution for PLF theatres and giant screen applications. Producing brightness levels up to 60,000 lumens, a wide color gamut achieving the Rec. 2020 color space and enhanced contrast ratios, the CP42LH is the highest performing RGB cinema laser projector on the market. Scores of this Christie-branded solution are installed in diverse exhibitor chains worldwide, and in a customized version at Dolby Cinema locations. (Dolby and Christie co-developed the Dolby Vision laser projection system, with projectors that Christie installs, supplies, and services, and which can be experienced only at Dolby Cinema locations. Dolby has more than 250 of these solutions installed or on order worldwide).
 
Scalable brightness
Featuring a scalable illumination platform consisting of rack-mounted laser modules, the CP42LH can be configured to meet the brightness requirements of any cinema. Each laser module is independently cooled, providing built-in fault protection and redundancy along with improved efficiency and reliability.
 
Features
  • Enhanced Wavelength Diversification (EWD) version, optimized for light-polarization based 3D, drastically reduces speckle
  • HFR capable
  • Robust light source that provides 30,000 hours of operation to 80 percent brightness
  • 6P version for a premium, natural 3D experience
Upcoming: Christie Freedom Series direct-coupled RGB laser projector (CP4325-RGB)
The next laser projection solution in the Christie Freedom Series is engineered from the ground-up in Christie’s world-class research, development and manufacturing facility, and will deliver an all-new platform offering another affordable, reliable and performance-driven Christie RGB laser projector, developed specifically to meet the needs of the mainstream cinema exhibitor.
 
Compact, direct-coupled platform
Poised to become the benchmark for laser-based cinema, the Christie Freedom direct-coupled RGB laser projector achieves unmatched performance capabilities in terms of image quality with its wide color gamut and capabilities for high dynamic range and high frame rates. Outfitted with Christie CineLife™ electronics, this projector features a streamlined UX-inspired interface that simplifies the playback, scheduling and management of cinematic content.  
 
Advanced laser light
Employing next-generation RGB laser devices, Christie’s engineers have been able to eliminate the need for any external cooling, drastically reducing system complexity and cost, while ensuring an impressive and reliable operational life of more than 30,000 hours, with only a 20 percent loss in brightness for the light source. And with its compact form factor, this projector can be easily integrated into any standard cinema booth.
