Christie CP2000 Becomes First 2K DLP Cinema Projector Installed in A Commercial Theater in North America

Digital Cinema Milestone Reached at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre
Christie Digital Systems, Inc., a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and media, today announced that the Christie CP2000 high performance digital cinema projection system was recently installed at the world famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California. Featuring Texas Instruments’ 2K resolution DLP Cinema (tm) technology, it represents the first 2K digital cinema projector to be installed at a commercial theatre in North America.

In true Hollywood fashion, the Christie CP2000 screened Tom Cruise’s sweeping cinematic saga, “The Last Samurai,” which was viewed by a star-studded audience that included Cruise himself.

“The vibrant and sharp theatrical digital images from Christie’s CP2000 far exceeded everyone’s expectations for image quality and brightness on one of the world’s largest cinema screens,” noted Craig Sholder, senior director, business development and cinema sales, Christie.

The Christie CP2000 series is part of Christie’s comprehensive line of digital cinema solutions and represents the next evolution in digital cinema exhibition. All projectors include features such as the Christie LampLOC (tm) (Automatic Lamp Alignment), Christie LiteLoc (tm) to ensure constant brightness on the screen, the Christie SSM (tm) (System Supervisor Module) for remote system diagnostics and monitoring via Ethernet, and Christie Touch Panel Controller (TPC(tm)), which provides system setup and control via Ethernet. Christie’s digital cinema projectors support SMPTE/ATSC high definition video formats.

At Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Christie’s field service engineering team installed the Christie CP2000 in parallel with the existing film projector and integrated the CP2000 digital cinema system.
“This installation is another great example of Christie’s ability to work closely with the cinema industry,” adds Sholder.
