With the latest RGB pure laser technology at a low total cost of ownership (TCO), upgrading from our 2K Series 1 and 2 projectors to Christie® CP2420-RGB suddenly makes a lot more sense.

Featuring CineLife+ electronics and Real|Laser illumination technology, the CP2420-RGB excels in image quality, operational lifetime, and overall cost. Its compact, all-in-one form factor doesn’t require external chillers or parts for a seamless installation into any booth. As energy costs continue to rise, this operationally efficient, carbon-conscious system yields real savings on your energy bill.

An engineered standard

Christie RealLaser uses compact, next-generation Multi Laser Pack Devices (MPDs) that achieve never-before-seen breakthroughs in brightness, color reproduction, image uniformity, contrast, and operational lifetime.

Featuring our patented fully sealed optical path, Real|Laser offers exhibitors more than 50,000 hours of optimal performance for unmatched long-term stability and reliability.

Advanced cinema electronics

Projector set-up is quick and easy with the auto-configure feature, the projector’s motorized lens mount, and the newly integrated electronic color convergence (ECC) feature for perfect color alignment.

CineLife+ is compatible with select third-party IMBs, and its wide range of inputs not only supports all existing content formats but futureproofs your investment for years to come. And you can use the CineLife+ RemoteUI to securely control the projector via the web on all popular browsers, eliminating the need for a touch panel controller.

Better for the environment, better for your bottom line

Illumination technology advancements make our RGB pure laser 2K cinema projectors the smartest choice for exhibitors who want to upgrade an aging 2K cinema system. This next generation of Real|Laser projector offers best-in-class operational efficiency for energy savings of up to 16% over the leading competitive model. It also eliminates external chillers, fiber-coupling, lamp replacements, and space concerns when retrofitting an existing booth. This higher, longer-lasting brightness, with less power consumption, means you save more money and achieve lower carbon emissions.

Efficiency and cost of operation

The CP2420-RGB is 16% more efficient than its competitors, producing 12.9 lumens per watt. Lower energy costs reduce the total cost of ownership by 16.5%.
