The deployment of Christie RGB pure laser cinema projectors stems from an exclusive agreement forged in 2023 between CGV and Christie. This collaboration is aimed at elevating the cinema experience across the markets served by CGV, including the ongoing replacement of aging lamp-based projectors to RGB pure laser illumination at certain venues. CGV’s strategic investment in Christie RGB pure laser projectors, designed for long-term efficiency with reduced consumables and energy savings, solidifies the cinema powerhouse as a leader in sustainability and ESG practices among exhibitors in the region.
