Christie Chosen Again By D-Cinema Korea for Second Phase Digital Cinema Deployment

Posted 5/11/2010

Christie®, a global leader in digital cinema, is pleased to announce that South Korea based D-Cinema Korea Co. Ltd. (DCK) has committed to installing Christie 4K-ready Solaria™ Series DLP Cinema® projectors in the second phase of their digital cinema deployments, countrywide.

After an extremely successful first phase of installations, DCK selected Christie’s next generation Series 2 projectors, based on their reliability, low cost of ownership and upgradeability to 4K. Christie is the first in the world to ship and install the Series 2 projectors globally, which utilize Academy Award1-winning DLP Cinema technology from Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN). 

In the initial deployment plan, DCK, the joint-venture company of Lotte Cinema and CJ CGV, installed Christie CP2000 Series projectors in the majority of cinemas across the country. The agreement for the second phase of installations strengthens DCK’s leadership in digital cinema and introduces a new era in content distribution for Korea. With this second phase installation, South Korea is expected to be the first, completely digitized country in the world.
