Christie brings expertise to ShowEast 2018

October 18, 2018

Tech Leadership on Display with Affordable RGB pure laser projection and Vive Audio

Miami – Christie® will have projection and audio experts available throughout the course of ShowEast 2018 , lending insights and knowledge to the exhibitor and studio contingents that attend this important annual convention at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, October 22-25.

The Christie Cinema team will be on deck in Booth 110 and in the Poinciana 2 meeting room, complete with the intriguingly economical Christie CP2320-RGB projector from the Christie RealLaser™ family and a compact offering from the Christie Vive Audio family. As well, Susie Beiersdorf, VP, Cinema for Christie Americas, will lead a presentation on Wednesday October 24 on Christie's expanding RealLaser™ product portfolio.

"The CP2320-RGB and its CP2315-RGB sibling, now shipping in volume, globally, follow in the footsteps of the cinema industry's first affordable RGB pure laser projector – the Christie CP4325-RGB," said Dale Miller, Executive Vice President, Cinema, Christie. "Visionary exhibitors worldwide are opting for RGB pure laser projection over other laser alternatives, witness CGR most recently (Exhibitor CGR declares Christie RealLaser 'Future of Cinema')" added Miller.

Miller noted that many venues are choosing to roll out both RGB laser and Xenon auditoriums, evidenced by Christie RealLaser at BFI London Film Festival and Christie RGB laser and Xenon Combine at Crowne Pointe multiplex. "And this is in keeping with Christie's tradition of providing choices for customers," Miller concluded.

Lamps Are Alive and Well

A Christie CP2308 will be in use at the GDC booth at ShowEast, representative of the most-employed cinema projection technology worldwide – Xenon-lamp illumination – one that remains a competitive choice for exhibitors not yet ready to make the move to RGB pure laser projection. In theaters (Christie Xenon Workhorses in Texas), post facilities (Christie Powers Post Facility) and even open-air venues (Christie Flies High at Dusseldorf Airport), Xenon shines.

"Lamp-based cinema-projection systems continue to drive the industry, with 99 percent market share for digital-cinema installations," said Brian Claypool, Christie's VP of Product Management, Global Cinema. "Christie led the digital-cinema revolution and there have never been more Xenon-based cinema projection devices than there are today, with more than 150,000 digital cinema projectors worldwide, all still delivering an attractive total cost of ownership (TCO). While we continue to sell and support these workhorses, Christie is laying a solid path to the future with its RealLaser illumination technology, which provides a clear advantage in both image quality and TCO for new installations and the replacement market," added Claypool.

Note that Christie lamp-based projectors are also the light source of choice for the many excellent film festivals that Christie powers globally, including the Toronto International Film Festival ®*, the world's largest public film festival; Cannes and the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF).
