Premium Movie-Going Experiences Now in Reach of Mainstream Cinemas with Introduction of Christie’s Direct-Coupled RGB Pure Laser Projector

Christie CP4325-RGB cinema projector is first in the Christie CineLife Series, featuring Christie RealLaser illumination, to bring low cost of ownership and unmatched cinematic performance to mainstream auditoriums
Christie® today introduced the Christie® CP4325-RGB pure laser cinema projector, which delivers a premium movie-going experience to mainstream theatres. Featuring CineLife™ electronics and RealLaser illumination, this compact, all-in-one DCI-compliant projector excels in image quality and operational lifetime, while providing a low cost of ownership. With the CP4325-RGB, exhibitors can fill their auditorium seats by attracting audiences with incredibly colorful and detailed, true-to-life images.

“With its innovative all-in-one, ‘next generation’ direct- coupled RGB illumination system, the Christie CP4235-RGB is the most advanced laser projector on the market,” said Allan Fernandes, senior manager, Product Management, Global Cinema, at Christie. “Using next generation, pure red-green-blue direct-emitting laser technology, the CP4325-RGB offers the most authentic and immersive cinema experience for the mainstream market. It offers all the advantages of a high-performance laser projector in a  compact ‘all-in-one’ form factor that eliminates the need for sub-ambient external cooling, while providing rich colors, higher contrast ratios, and the lowest total cost of ownership of any projector in its class.”
 
Industry interest and endorsements roll in
Based on feedback gathered during recent factory tours, in-depth demonstrations and event showings to Christie’s global customer base, the CP4325-RGB promises to be a welcome addition to the cinema value chain, with exhibitors and post-production houses eager to put its potential to work. It is well-positioned to become the benchmark for laser-based cinema projection and exemplifies Christie’s technological leadership in the cinema market.
 
“Our longstanding, strategic relationship with Christie has delivered thousands of digital cinema projectors to theatres across China,” said Jack Wang, Chief Technical Officer, Wanda Cinemaline Corporation. “As we continue to grow our domestic cinema-market share, we are looking closely at the Christie CP4325-RGB RealLaser™ projector as a strong candidate for our lineup.”
 
“HOYTS Cinema Technology Group has always prided itself on introducing technologies that deliver the ultimate visuals for the best cinematic experience, witness our installation of the Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector for our 390-seat “Xtremescreen” premium auditorium in October 2016, at the HOYTS Chadstone complex,” said Adam Wrightson, General Manager, HOYTS Cinema Technology Group. “Given Christie’s pedigree and our reputation for innovation, it’s no wonder that HOYTS has already ordered several units of the Christie CP4325-RGB projector, which leverages the many features of the CP42LH but shrinks the footprint with a breakthrough-design that eliminates the need for external chillers,” Wrightson added.
 
“Our customers deserve the best, so to light up our Super EMAX theatre in Novi, Michigan, with its 92 ft (28 m) by 40 ft (12 m) screen, we’ve installed a Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector,” said David Zylstra, VP of Technology, Emagine-Entertainment. “But technology is always improving and so I’m delighted that, with the launch of the CP4325-RGB, Christie is introducing its RealLaser™ lineup of all-in-one projectors; a family which has the potential to ‘future proof’ our Novi and other auditoriums across the U.S. heartland.”
 
“The three CP42LH projectors we have installed so far in our premium auditoriums have given us an incredible competitive edge in the market,” said Luis Millán, owner of the Spanish cinema chain Odeon Multicines. “Our customers love the pictureand really notice the difference in color saturation, clarity, brightness and higher contrast image quality. So we are looking forward to the launch of the CP4325-RGB with its innovative and compact form factor design that reduces system complexity and cost, while also providing a wide color gamut,” added Millán.
 
“Department of Post is an innovative, agile and collaborative post-house, aiming to provide filmmakers access to the best technology the world has to offer," said James Gardner, CTO, Department of Post. “In keeping with our mission, the Christie CP4325-RGB RealLaser™ projector is an essential addition to our facility, with exceedingly accurate colour rendition, vivid black and white contrast and overall brightness that enables us to promise our clients the highest possible quality projection of their work in a professional environment,” said Gardner.
 
More models planned, for reliability today, innovation for tomorrow
“The CP4325-RGB is the forerunner of a line of Christie RGB pure laser projection solutions intended for mainstream cinema applications and as such is an ideal replacement product for exhibitors wishing to upgrade existing installations, as well as for new-build cinemas and retrofits,” said Brian Claypool, vice president, Product Management, Global Cinema, at Christie.
 
“With its compact footprint, long operational life, increased performance capabilities and elimination of consumables, the CP4325-RGB is a game-changing proposition for mainstream auditoriums looking for a performance upgrade when investing in their next generation cinema experience, rather than settling for just a technology swap,” added Claypool.
 
Employing next-generation RGB pure laser devices, Christie’s advanced research and development teams 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 over this time. The CP4325-RGB boasts a contrast ratio of up to 6000:1 and provides better uniformity and a wider color gamut than other cinema projection systems. In addition, the projector’s compact form-factor means that it can be easily integrated into standard cinema booths.
 
The Christie CP4325-RGB, like its fiber-coupled sibling – the Christie CP42LH – offers a wide color gamut exceeding DCI P3 specifications, enhanced contrast ratios and high frame rates (HFR) compatibility. The CP4325-RGB features Christie’s new CineLife™ Series 3 electronics and embedded cinema automation for streamlined playback, scheduling and content management. Field tested on more than 100 screens since 2014 with the next-generation Christie IMB-S3, the CineLife Series 3 electronics also provides backwards compatibility with existing Series 2 IMB architectures.
 
Impressive features list, summarized
  • Native cinema 4K3D support with Christie IMB-S3 at 4K 48 frames per second (fps), and 2K 120fps HFR functionality out-of-the-box 
  • 4K 60fps  ready, with upgrade path for 4K 120fps support 
  • UX-designed interface with large 1280x800 touch panel 
  • Built-in automation controller (relay outputs, GPIO, serial-over-Ethernet) 
  • Optional Christie Series-3 IMB with integrated SMS 
  • Backwards compatible with select third-party Series-2 IMBs (Contact a Christie representative for updated Series-2 IMB support)
  • AIC (Add-In-Card) expansion for future support 
  • Support for all major TMS vendors (Contact a Christie representative for the latest TMS vendor support )
