MELBOURNE, Australia – (October 11, 2016) – Christie® and HOYTS are pleased to announce that HOYTS Chadstone has become the first cineplex in Australia to install Christie’s groundbreaking RGB laser projection system that delivers the ultimate visuals for the best cinematic experience.

Located within the sprawling Chadstone Shopping Centre, HOYTS Chadstone comprises 13 auditoriums, including the 390-seat “Xtremescreen” premium auditorium fitted with a massive 24-meter wide screen – one of the biggest in Australia. The projection system here comprises a Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector featuring enhanced wavelength diversification (EWD), connected via fiber optic to a laser rack housing nine laser modules that generate white light from multiple combinations of RGB primary color wavelengths to offer a spectacular 3D viewing experience on silver screens. Installed by the technical teams from Christie and HOYTS Cinema Technology Group, the system generates 45,000 lumens – much brighter than what current digital projectors with lamps can offer.
