Christie First to Achieve Full DCI Compliance

Christie ‘Series 2′ Digital Cinema Projectors Pass Complete Range of CTP Tests

Christie, the leader in digital cinema projection technologies, announced that it is the first digital cinema projector manufacturer to pass the full range of tests required by the Compliance Test Plan (CTP) for the DCI Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS), including all procedural and design review aspects. The tests were completed by CineCert, LLC, a technology development and consulting firm that is the only organization in North America licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to administer the CTP.

“We are very pleased to confirm that the Christie CP2220, featuring Texas Instruments’ Series 2 DLP Cinema technology, has passed all the requirements of the CTP,” said John Hurst, CTO of CineCert. “We are dedicated to helping the exhibition community understand all of the technical requirements for passing the CTP and helping manufacturers get through the testing process quickly and efficiently.”

Hollywood studios require exhibitors worldwide to install DCI compliant projectors in their theaters; and passing the CTP is the only approved path to DCI compliance. Christie’s latest generation projector, the Christie CP2220 – from the Christie Solaria Series of 4K-ready projectors – was tested by CineCert, and their tests confirmed that the projector meets the highest level of technical performance, interoperability, and rigorous content security requirements as specified by DCI’s Compliance Test Plan.

“With over 12,000 digital cinema projectors installed worldwide, Christie helps set the standards for quality, reliability and performance,” said Brian Claypool, Senior Product Manager, Entertainment Solutions. “Now that CineCert has confirmed the Christie CP2220 meets the CTP’s requirements, exhibitors have another level of assurance about our commitment to providing them with industry-leading products and services.”

Recognized as “the future of 4K,” the Christie CP2220 projector is built on the proven, highly reliable 1.2″ DLP Cinema chip, the only one to offer a 4K upgrade path using Christie’s easy “15 minutes to 4K” process. Smaller than other 1.2″ DLP Cinema-based projectors, the Christie CP2220 provides exceptional installation flexibility with a motorized lens option that is the fastest and most accurate available. With more light output than any mid power projector on the market, the CP2220 also offers the lowest cost of operation.

“With more than 80 years in the industry, Christie has earned the trust of the exhibition community by consistently providing products of the highest quality and reliability. This new digital cinema landmark – meeting the strictest requirements for DCI compliance – is further proof of Christie’s commitment to the market,” said Craig Sholder, Vice President of Entertainment Solutions at Christie.
