Working with Christie’s China entertainment solutions partner, ACE Technology Co. Ltd. the order includes Christie 2K and 4K DLP® cinema projectors; the world’s most deployed digital cinema projection solution.

“Our initial installations of Christie projectors have been successful and, based on this success, we decided to select Christie again. The Christie 2K and 4K digital cinema projectors have performed superbly and the Christie CP2000-ZX digital cinema projector is well suited for the large screen cinemas that we manage – it offers us incomparable brightness with a low operating cost. As well, it is easy to operate, install and own. We are also very excited to have the Christie CP2000-M projectors in our small cinemas. Displaying 12,000 lumens across a 35-feet wide screen, they will create a whole new experience in digital cinema performance for our cinema-goers,” said Cheng Yang, general manager of CFGC’s digital cinema business unit.

“Christie is privileged to have the opportunity to work with the illustrious China Film group. With Christie’s range of digital cinema solutions, we can guarantee our cinema customers far superior picture quality, brightness and reliability. The Christie CP2220 projectors are designed to be fully upgradable to 4K technology and as such, Christie’s 4K upgrade path is the fastest and most cost-effective in the industry today,” commented Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific.
