BANGKOK, Thailand – (January 26, 2017) – Christie® is pleased to announce that Major Cineplex, the largest cinema operator in Thailand, has chosen Christie’s unique RGB laser projection system for its flagship auditorium, Paragon Cineplex, to deliver the ultimate 3D viewing experience for movie-goers.

Located on the fifth floor of the famous Siam Paragon shopping mall in the heart of the city, Paragon Cineplex comprises 16 screens and 5,000 seats, and is well-known as Thailand's largest cineplex. The projection system will be fitted in Siam Pavalai theater, Thailand’s single, grandest theater equipped with 23-meter screen and 1,096-seat capacity, making it an ideal venue for the deployment of the Christie RGB laser projection system.

The system is comprised of a Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector featuring enhanced wavelength diversification (EWD), connected via fiber optic to a laser rack housing eight laser modules that generate white light from multiple combinations of RGB primary color wavelengths to offer a spectacular 3D viewing experience on silver screens. The single system is capable of generating 40,000 lumens – much brighter than what current, lamp-based digital projectors can deliver.
