Dolby To Install Christie Projectors In Theaters

Publish date:

Cypress, CA -- Dolby Laboratories has selected the Christie CP2000 2K resolution DLP cinema projectors for more than 50 specially selected theaters in the U.S. market. According to Christie, alongside Dolby Digital Cinema servers, Christie's projectors will enhance the moviegoing experience by bringing more light to screens for brighter and clearer images. As part of the arrangement, Christie will also install the projectors and provide Christie Managed Services solutions, which include a complete range of technical services and support.

In addition, the Christie CP2000 projector was also recently chosen to introduce the latest generation of 3D technology at Cinema Expo, Amsterdam; the Large Format Cinema Association Conference (LFCA) and Film Festival in Los Angeles; and ShoWest in Las Vegas. The projector is capable of delivering both 2D and 3D content, which it achieves through its proprietary Xenolite short-arc illumination system.

"We are very pleased to be working with Christie for this important roll-out of Digital Cinema, which offers a new level of excitement for moviegoing audiences everywhere," said Tim Partridge, senior vice president and general manager, Professional Division, Dolby Laboratories. "Working with Christie will help insure that the digital picture is presented as bright and as clearly as possible."

Craig Sholder, vice president of Christie's Entertainment Solutions group, said, "Projecting the full range of Digital Cinema content, including the latest generation of 3D images on large movie screens is all about light-the more light, the better. Christie has always recognized this crucial factor, which is why our projectors are acknowledged worldwide as the brightest, most reliable on the market. As momentum builds for the implementation of Digital Cinema, the differentiating factor is our broad range of experience spanning more than 75 years and our solid commitment to meeting the needs of our partners in the exhibition community."
