Christie has announced that it is the first digital cinema projector manufacturer to pass the full range of tests required by the Compliance Test Plan (CTP) for the DCI Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS), including all procedural and design review aspects.
The tests were completed by CineCert LLC, a technology development and consulting firm that is the only organisation in North America licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives LLC (DCI) to administer the CTP.
Hollywood studios require exhibitors worldwide to install DCI-compliant projectors in their theatres, and passing the CTP is the only approved path to DCI compliance. Christie’s latest generation projector, the Christie CP2220 – from the Christie Solaria Series of 4K-ready projectors – was tested by CineCert, and Christie says that CineCert’s tests confirmed that the projector meets the highest level of technical performance, interoperability, and rigorous content security requirements as specified by DCI’s Compliance Test Plan.
“With over 12,000 digital cinema projectors installed worldwide, Christie helps set the standards for quality, reliability and performance,” said Brian Claypool, senior product manager, entertainment solutions at Christie. “Now that CineCert has confirmed the Christie CP2220 meets the CTP’s requirements, exhibitors have another level of assurance about our commitment to providing them with industry-leading products and services.”
