Posted 12/28/2015

Christie®, a leader in creating and sharing the world's best visual and audio experiences, is pleased to announce that CGV, a subsidiary of CJ Group and South Korea’s largest multiplex cinema chain, is the first exhibitor in the world to be equipped with Christie’s revolutionary RGB laser projection system featuring even more wavelength diversity to countermeasure speckle on silver screens.

The system consists of a Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector and laser modules that generate white light from multiple combinations of RGB primary color wavelengths. This type of laser system provides better speckle performance than 6P systems when used with silver screens and passive polarization-based 3D glasses. It has been installed by Christie’s Korean partner, Ray & Resources, at SphereX CGV Youngdeungpo in Seoul. CGV’s SphereX is a specially designed, one-of-a-kind curved silver screen to maximize immersive 3D experience. The auditorium at Youngdeungpo has a 19-meter wide curved screen and 387 seats – resulting in a spectacular viewing experience with remarkable speckle performance. This is CGV’s second auditorium in Korea to deploy Christie’s pinnacle cinematic projection technology, following the installation of Christie’s 6P laser projection system at CGV Starium in October 2015.
