BIRTV/BEIJING – (August 24, 2016) –Christie®, a leader in creating and delivering the world’s best visual and audio experiences, is demonstrating industry-leading digital cinema technologies at the Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Exhibition (BIRTV), taking place at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing August 24-27.

The Christie booth located at #2A236 is drawing in the crowds with live demonstrations of the new Christie CP2208-LP 3DLP® laser phosphor cinema projector, which is capable of displaying DCI content, alternative and local content, and 3D and High Frame Rate (HFR) content to provide audiences with the best visual experience possible. Visitors can experience bright and vibrant visuals of the CP2208-LP in a custom-built internal theater at the booth, which also features the innovative Christie Vive Audio solution, offering rich, dynamic and detailed sound to complete the cinematic experience.

Also on show are innovative cinema lobby and immersive corridor concepts created by digital specialists from Christie 360, a highly specialized team dedicated to creating high-impact experiential media and interactive multiplatform applications suited for cinema environments. An engaging cinema lobby display comprising three Christie 65-inch interactive flat panels arranged in a herringbone pattern and driven by Christie Pandoras Box media players, will display contents by Christie 360 that visitors can interact with by simply touching the screens with their fingers.

Another highlight of the booth is the “Christie Corridor” – a full-sized immersive cinema passageway similar to those found in contemporary theater complexes. Designed by the Christie 360 team to enhance customers’ pre-show experience, it comprises large extended screens displaying an array of cinema and Christie 360-related contents using Christie Captiva Series ultra short throw projectors and Christie Pandoras Box media players.
