The first of which will be installed at PVR Mani Square Mall in Kolkata. Designed to provide uniform pixel convergence across the entire screen, the Christie Duo system allows one projector to be dedicated to the right eye and one projector to be dedicated to the left. The result is one of the brightest, most engaging and comfortable 3D viewing experiences.
