Christie had been selected as Cinéville's main supplier to support its digital rollout plan and gradually equip the group and its cinemas. Funding for Cinéville's gradual switchover is based on an agreement signed in March 2009 with Ymagis, a third-party facilitator using a virtual print fee (VPF) model as part of its European deployment plan.

LED Illumination

LED illumination provides long life, reliability and virtually maintenance-free visual displays.

​Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have emerged as a solid-state alternative for traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps. Offering a number of distinct operational and performance advantages, LED illumination technology can solve some of the challenges found in designing projection arrays and other applications. 

LED offers:

  • Solid-state illumination
    As a solid-state technology, LEDs have no moving parts. This makes them very durable and virtually maintenance free, even in the most demanding applications.

  • Instant on
    LEDs turn on instantly so you can quickly share your information, especially in mission-critical situations.

  • Extremely long life
    The rated lifetime of an LED is 60,000 hours, giving you years of operation without the need to replace the light source.

  • No color wheel required
    With LED projectors, there is no need for a motorized color wheel. Red, green and blue LEDs can be sequenced at rates many times faster than color wheels, reducing the likelihood of visible sequencing artifacts.

  • Wider color gamut for more vivid color
    The color spectral characteristics and range surpass that provided by traditional color wheel-based systems. LEDs far exceed European Broadcasting Standards minimums and the system allows color performance to be easily manipulated to best match the application.

  • Better brightness control
    LEDs offer a wide range of brightness control, giving you the ability to reproduce your content as accurately as possible.

  • Environmentally responsible
    With zero consumables and high-efficiency operation, LEDs are an environmentally responsible light source.

Christie's LED Illuminated solutions

Christie has a proven track record designing and manufacturing purpose-built products tuned to the needs of specific markets, and a history of innovations that provide solutions for the unique challenges of projection arrays. The Christie Matrix StIM™ projection system with InfraScene™ LED technology for night-vision goggle simulation and the Christie Entero™, both feature Christie ArrayLOC™ for intelligent self-adjustment of the array in real time is simply the latest. Christie ArrayLOC™ successfully exploits the advantages inherent in LED technology to provide a scalable-environment, seamless display system that is highly reliable and virtually maintenance-free. This technology revolutionizes the training experience. 

Christie MicroTiles™ take display technology to a new frontier. Built on proven DLP® technology and specifically designed for maximum image quality in high-ambient light environments, Christie MicroTiles are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including architectural elements, out-of-home advertising, command and control video walls, and event production.

Using the strengths of both rear projection and LED technology, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional LCD and plasma displays. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas with an unlimited number of super-fine pixels.

Long life, reliability, virtually maintenance-free visual displays

LED illumination revolutionizes visual displays by offering a platform that contains no consumable components, which would otherwise require scheduled replacement and maintenance.  With seven to ten years of operating life (depending on the application) and built-in management features that continuously monitor and manage brightness, color control and black levels across the entire display. Christie’s LED-illumination technology platform ensures virtually zero-maintenance operation.  ​​​​​​​​
