Christie's Mission and Vision


Innovation is part of our DNA

We’ve created a legacy of light, and our customers use that light to create brilliant shared experiences. We continue to create innovative and industry-leading technology, and look to a brighter future.

We’re proud of the accolades we’ve received. In 2018, AV Magazine named us the Most Influential Company of the last 20 years. Esteemed industry peers of the International Cinema Technology Association (ICTA) awarded us the 2018 Teddy Award for Manufacturer of the Year, our third win. With more than 50 industry-firsts, 100+ patents, countless industry awards, and multiple Academy Awards, Christie sets a high standard.

While our products continue to illuminate your breathtaking content and solve your AV challenges, we expanded our products and services to respond to the needs of our new world.

The disinfection technology we need right now

We need technology that effectively reduces harmful pathogens and helps people feel safer in occupied indoor spaces. Christie CounterAct commercial UV disinfection fixtures contain patented Care222® technology that emits filtered far-UVC 222nm light, designed to neutralize pathogens with people present while meeting established safety guidelines. Care222 is also the world’s first UVC technology with a proprietary optical filter that blocks potentially harmful UVC wavelengths from being emitted.
