Christie passes 20,000 mark11 July 2011
Christie has announced that it has shipped and installed more than 20,000 digital cinema projectors worldwide. The accomplishment includes the sale and installation of DCI-compliant Christie Solaria Series 2K and 4K projectors, including the Christie CP2220 and Christie CP2230.
“Projectors were shipped to cinema customers in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Turkey and the United States in May, with the 20,000th shipment going to Cinema City International in Arad, Romania,” said Jack Kline, president and chief operating officer, Christie Digital Systems USA. “Whether it is 2D or 3D, 2K or 4K, small or large screens, we are honoured that our customers continue to rely on Christie to deliver the brightest, most reliable projection solutions for their theatres.”
Christie says that it introduced the world’s first digital cinema projector – the Christie DCP-H – more than 12 years ago, followed by the Christie CP2000 series and, most recently, the Christie Solaria series for both 2K and 4K resolutions.
All projectors in the Christie Solaria series are designed to meet Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) specifications. They feature, according to the company, a new modular architecture for improved serviceability and ease of maintenance, with up to 25 percent lower cost of operation than competing technologies.
