CinemacCon/Las Vegas—Apr 19, 2018

Steeped in Film Heritage, Christie Shapes Future of Cinema Technology

Cinema leaders – exhibitors, studios, film festivals, content creators and filmmakers – choose Christie for projection, audio, lobby engagements and services
Christie® , a leader in creating and delivering the world’s best visual and audio experiences, continues to shape the future of exhibition with an impressive presence at CinemaCon 2018, April 23 – 26  at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
 
“Christie is dedicated to improving the audience experience, by making the best cinema technologies available to our customers,” said Dale Miller, executive vice president, Cinema, at Christie. “Our legacy of cinema innovations is steeped in real, quantifiable benefits to audiences and exhibitors alike, beginning with our development of short-arc Xenon technology more than 50 years ago and now exemplified by our RealLaser™ RGB laser projectors, which make RGB laser illumination finally affordable for mainstream cinema exhibition.”
 
In keeping with its ability to deliver what cinemas need to grow audience attendance, Christie’s presence at CinemaCon 2018 will be pervasive, from both within and outside the Colosseum at Caesars Palace; along the corridors, archways, registration areas and lounges; as well as Christie’s own futuristic theater in the Milano ballrooms.
 
Christie illumination technologies, ranging from lowest total cost of ownership Xenon models to state-of-the-art, yet affordable, RGB laser illumination products, continue to be chosen by leading exhibitors in 2018 including Kinoplex (Brazil), Showtime Cinemas (Taiwan), Filmpassage Mülheim (Germany), B&B (USA), Xscape (USA), VSS Southern/Movie Tavern (USA), Cinemex (Mexico) and Cinémas Guzzo (Canada), to name a few.
 
Christie’s Cinema Leadership Pervasive at CinemaCon
A 40-seat theater will feature a production unit of Christie’s first RealLaser™ cinema projector, the frontrunner of the industry’s RGB projection solutions, which has garnered hundreds of orders since its official launch at Cine Asia in December past.
 
Boasting an innovative, patented and all-in-one, direct- coupled RGB illumination system, the Christie CP4235-RGB is the most advanced laser projector on the market. It uses next generation, pure red-green-blue direct-emitting laser technology to deliver the most authentic and immersive cinema experience available, 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.
 
The Christie CP4235-RGB is the first in a series of projectors featuring RealLaser™ RGB pure laser illumination and visitors to the Milano 1/2/3 suite will get sneak previews of two future models, the Christie CP2320 and Christie CP2315 RGB projectors as well, both of which are available now for pre-ordering.
 
Christie’s LightTIME Guarantee
At CinemaCon Christie is introducing its LightTIME Guarantee, which includes all the lamps necessary to support its operation during the warranty period of a customer’s Christie CP2308 cinema projector. Exhibitors can pick from three different illumination packages appropriate for their screen. Once purchased, the projector will ship with two lamps and after will automatically receive additional lamps as the customer requires based on the illumination package chosen. Christie is beginning the program with the CP2308 but intends on expanding the guarantee to every Christie xenon cinema projector as well as its extended warranty programs in the future.
 
Christie maintains that Xenon-and-RGB laser illumination systems are superior to other illumination systems for cost of ownership, contrast, color accuracy and system reliability, for the majority of cinemas worldwide.
 
Christie Vive More versatile than ever, with 1,000 installs and counting, plus new products
Christie has installed its Christie Vive Audio solution in more than 1,000 auditoriums since introduction, most recently in a Showtime Cinemas’ multiplex in Taiwan. And the good news keeps getting better for cinema operators, as Christie is introducing two new Christie® Vive Audio™ S Series subwoofer models, ideal for cinema LFE (Low Frequency Effects), at CinemaCon.
 
The S118LP and S218LP Low profile subwoofers offer improved performance and greater installation versatility, with a depth of just 15.5-inches (394mm), enabling installs in a wider range of environments than typical subwoofers. They utilize a newly developed, high performance 18-inch driver, with dual 4-inch voice coils, integrated into a heavily braced, ported cabinet design, featuring EBS (Extended Bass Shelf) tuning down to 23Hz.
 
The S118LP uses a single 18-inch driver, offers a sensitivity of 97.5dB (free space @ 1m), and yields a Max Sound Pressure Level of 127.5dB continuous, 139.5dB SPL peak. The S218LP uses dual 18-inch drivers, yielding a Max Sound Pressure Level of 133.5dB continuous, 145.5dB SPL peak.
