Christie announced that one of the most celebrated audio post companies in North America, Todd-AO, has 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, a division of CSS Studios, provides sound-related post-production services to the motion picture and television industries. The company, which selected the Christie CP2230 DLP Cinema projector, operates three Todd-AO facility locations in the Los Angeles area. CSS Studios also operates a facility in New York, Sound One, where it plans to install an additional two projectors.

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 is introducing the Christie CP2230 digital projector for post production audio on 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.

“As an independent post production facility, client perception and satisfaction are crucial,? said Bill Johnston, Senior Vice President, Engineering, CSS Studios, Todd-AO’s parent company. “Across-the-board equipment compatibility is critical in post production work. We selected Christie projectors because they are the de facto standard. We work very closely with picture editorial and post production colorists, all of whom have wholly embraced our choice.?

Johnston noted that, with 4K resolution moving toward the industry standard, it was extremely important for the projectors to provide 4K upgrade-ability, in addition to full 3D capabilities. Christie projectors met all the criteria, as well as providing compatibility with the widest range of sources.

“The Christie CP2230, coupled with the Cine-IPM, is simple to operate and easy to adjust. We are often switching between various Standard Definition and High Definition video formats during any given day, and the projector makes this task relatively simple,? said Johnston. “The entire process of working with Christie was smooth. The Christie staff worked with our integrator to meet our specifications, and helped make the purchase and installation quick and easy.

“CSS Studios and Todd-AO are home to some of the most talented and creative people in the industry,? said Craig Sholder, Vice President of Entertainment Solutions at Christie. “As the first post production studio to embrace the new Christie Solaria Series 4K-ready projectors, CSS Studios continues to prove their reputation as innovators, with state-of-the-art technology that is always ahead of the curve.?
