Todd-AO Studios standardizes on Solaria Series 4K-ready projectors

Award-winning Todd-AO®, a division of CSS Studios based in Hollywood, California, is a provider of sound-related post-production services to the motion picture and television industries. One of the most celebrated audio post production companies in North America, Todd-AO selected the Christie Solaria™ Series 4K-ready projectors as part of a complete digital cinema package that includes the Christie Cine-IPM image processor. Todd-AO operates three facilities locations in the Los Angeles area and CSS Studios also operates Sound One, a facility in New York.

With top industry awards beginning as far back as the ground-breaking movie musical Oklahoma in 1955 to more recent projects, such as Inglourious Basterds and The Bourne Ultimatum, Todd-AO recently installed the Christie CP2230 digital projector for post-production audio at one of its larger feature film mixing stages. One of the first projects to benefit from the installation of the CP2230 projector was this summer’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. CSS Studios’ Sound One facility plans to install an additional two projectors.

“We selected Christie projectors because they are the de facto standard.”

Bill Johnston, Senior Vice-President, Engineering, CSS Studios
