Seattle Cinerama Selects Christie for World’s First Permanent Cinema Laser Projection Installation

Purchase follows on heels of US FDA approval of variance for Christie, allowing the sale of laser projectors for use in cinema; notably the first and only such variance approved for a manufacturer of DCI-compliant cinema projectors

Christie®, a global leader in digital cinema projection, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to supply and install the world’s first commercial digital laser projection solution at the Seattle Cinerama Theatre, located at 2100 4th Avenue in Seattle, WA. The purchase order is for a 4K Christie digital laser projector, with scalable light output up to 60,000 lumens.

“When hi-tech visionary Paul G. Allen bought the theater in 1999, he gave Cinerama full rein to innovate in order to provide our community with a cutting-edge movie going experience,” said Cinerama Theatre Manager Greg Wood. “Selecting a laser projection solution – with its ability to render 2D and 3D movies with stunning clarity and brilliant, accurate color rendition – is in keeping with this tradition.

“We were excited by demonstrations of the technology earlier this year by Christie and we are looking forward to welcoming this reliable and brilliant laser projector installation to our space.”

Christie recently received the first US FDA approval of variance allowing the sale of laser projectors for use in a cinema, which is the first and only such variance to date approved for a manufacturer of DCI-compliant cinema projectors.

Said Jack Kline, president & COO, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc., “Cinerama has a long history of innovation and our latest projector will empower the theater to take the audience experience to the next level. A laser projector is a significant investment for any cinema and the fact that the Seattle Cinerama has chosen Christie to help this venue continue in its capacity as one of the world’s premiere movie theaters is a great vote of confidence.”

Site scoping and technical evaluations will begin in August, with an anticipated switch over from conventional digital projection to the latest Christie digital cinema laser projector planned for early next year.

Noted Dr. Don Shaw, senior director, Product Management, Christie Entertainment Solutions, “Cinerama’s huge screen requires the best and brightest in digital cinema projection technology, so it can demonstrate how spectacularly a moviemaker’s vision can be realized when shown at high contrast ratios and intense light levels. This in turn will yield an entirely new and naturally immersive experience for the average moviegoer and aficionados alike. We know that Christie laser projection will deliver beyond everyone’s already-high expectations.”

Christie Laser-Projection Timetable Continues Apace
Christie has a history of innovation without equal in the cinema technology world. For example, most recently and for two full weeks beginning March 28, 2013, Christie joined forces with AMC and Paramount Pictures to project G.I. JOE: RETALIATION in the ‘first’ commercial exhibition of a 3D movie at brightness levels of 14 foot lamberts (ft-L) using laser projection. It was the first ever opportunity for the general public to enjoy compelling, immersive 3D images delivered at 2D light levels.

As well, in 2012 Christie showed select exhibitors in Asia how 72,000 lumens could be achieved, in a demonstration of its prototype laser projector in Beijing. That screening followed the September showing at IBC 2012 in Amsterdam of Hugo 3D – the first CPG (Cameron Pace Group) certified movie –introduced by Dr. Shaw, along with noted stereographers, Demetri Portelli and Corey Turner (‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’). The movie was then projected using Christie’s 4K laser projector prototype.

Christie hosted its first laser projector demo for cinema industry luminaries including Douglas Trumbull, Gordon E. Sawyer Academy Award winner, at its High Frame Rate Summit held in its manufacturing and engineering headquarters in Kitchener, Ontario in April 2012.

Christie intends to introduce a wide range of laser projectors building on core technologies and architectures, to power applications for the digital cinema, pro AV, visualization and simulation markets, throughout 2013 and beyond.

About Seattle Cinerama
When Paul G. Allen heard in the mid-1990s that Seattle’s historic Cinerama Theatre might close down to become a rock-climbing club, dinner theater, or even a parking lot, he signed a “Save the Cinerama” petition—and later took it a step further by purchasing the old movie-house himself. Seattle’s Cinerama Theatre was one of many opened in the 1950s and 1960s for Cinerama films, technological marvels of their day which were shown on a curved screen utilizing a three-projector system.

In 1998, Vulcan kicked off a major, multi-million dollar renovation of the theatre, refurbishing the interior and exterior, installing state-of-the-art sound and projector systems, and ensuring maximum accessibility for mobility- and sensory-impaired patrons. A grand re-opening celebration took place on April 22, 1999 to welcome the theatre back into commission. Since then, it has regularly been voted one of Seattle’s “best places to watch a movie” and plays host to various film festivals and blockbuster film premieres each year.

HARMAN’s Martin MAC Viper Beam – High Intensity Beam with Zoom!

AARHUS, Denmark — HARMAN’s Martin new MAC Viper Beam is a unique beam fixture with linear zoom system that projects a very narrow pencil beam of high-intensity light. The final fixture in the award-winning MAC Viper Family, it is available as an easy-to-install front lens replacement kit for any standard MAC Viper AirFX.

Ideal for high-impact, big beam effects and longer throws, it houses the same high-quality feature set as Martin’s MAC Viper AirFX, including a vibrant color mixing system and stunning aerial effects. It has also inherited the same compact form, impressive speed and superior light quality using the same 1000 W source as the other Viper Family luminaires.

Tighter beam – higher intensity

With 80 percent greater intensity than the MAC Viper AirFX, the MAC Viper Beam can cut through all forms of ambient lighting. Its linear zoom – a unique feature for a beam luminaire – creates a tighter beam and the auto-linked focus means that hard-edge effects hold their focus throughout the entire zoom range and at varying throws. Beam gobos can adjust along the entire zoom range and unlike other fixtures, light output is constant with no visible beam jump from tight to wide.

The MAC Viper Beam houses a selection of all-new aerial effects on two gobo wheels – a rotating gobo wheel with five replaceable designs and a fixed gobo wheel with seven designs. The CMY color mixing system offers a superior palette including true reds, rich ambers, primary green and deep blues with added color choice from a 7-slot color wheel. A linear CTO provides daylight to tungsten CCT control and expansion of the CMY palette.

Beams can be manipulated using a combined dimmer/shutter with intensity effects for instant blackout or smooth fades all the way to blackout. Additional effects are possible from a fast and tight iris with adjustable dynamic effects, as well as a frost that can snap or fade in for beautiful hard-edge or narrow-angle wash effects. Various strobe effects are also possible.

The MAC Viper Beam is available as an easy-to-install front lens replacement kit for any standard MAC Viper AirFX. The lens kit installs (and uninstalls) in only a few minutes with no need to change internal parts. For the lighting designer this means another great lighting tool while the rental house benefits from added flexibility and enhanced value for their MAC Viper AirFX portfolio.

High Resolution Engineering Adds Lightware FR33L Routers to Rental Inventory

High Resolution Engineering (HRE) has completed the upgrade of its Lightware rental inventory with the addition of FR33L modular Lightware routers with HDCP boards. The complement of FR33Ls marks the culmination of the rental upgrade, which has seen the previous inventory of DVI routers replaced by Lightware 8×8, 17×17, 80×80 and now 33×33 modular frames. At the same time, the rental inventory has been upgraded with five Vista Spyder X20 image processors with kit options.

“Lightware’s FR33L is the number-one most requested router by AV technicians,” reports HRE’s Mike Taylor. “It’s by far the best router on the market. With the addition of the very powerful FR33Ls our entire inventory of Lightware routers is now cutting edge. Our rental inventory can take care of all of our customers’ needs.”

Equipped with HDCP Input/Output cards, the complete rental inventory of Lightware routers is fully compatible with up to 4K HDMI. The routers still offer DVI and HD-SDI compatibility for the maximum in format flexibility.

Multiple I/O cards offer fiber optic, CAT5 and 6 and HDBaseT connectivity. Pixel-accurate reclocking on inputs ensures signals that had been lost in the past can now be recovered.

A frame detector (waveform monitor) is built in on every input and output so users can see the signal in the router software. “That’s a powerful diagnostic tool that only Lightware offers,” says Taylor. “All of these features are available across our Lightware rental inventory.”

HRE’s five Spyder X20 image processors now boast kit options, which include routers, controllers, EDID Managers, DA2s and CAT6 send and receive units. “It’s a powerful ‘show-in-a-box’ solution that meets all customer requirements,” Taylor says. The kit components comprise three Pelican cases for easy transport.

Sound Devices Demonstrates Latest Solutions for Production Professionals at BIRTV 2013

PIX 260i Production Video Recorder and 664 Production Mixer Bring Expanded Functionality to Broadcast and Production Professionals

BEIJING, CHINA, AUGUST 21, 2013 — Sound Devices, specialists in portable audio and video products for field production, showcases the newest functionality for the PIX 260i Production Video Recorder (China Broadcast Technologies Co., Ltd. Booth 1A112) and 664 Production Mixer (Dingrun International Digital Tec.co., Ltd Booth 2001) at the Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition 2013. BIRTV is one of the most influential exhibitions in the broadcasting industry in Asia. With recent firmware updates, PIX 260i and the 664 both offer increased functionality to the end user.

“We look forward to attending BIRTV each year, as it gives us the opportunity to meet with local content creators from the region and discuss their needs,” says Ed Capp, Global Director of Sales for Sound Devices. “Attendees at this year’s show will soon find that this year’s lineup can vastly improve their workflows—whether they are looking for production recorders or mixers.”

Sound Devices’ PIX 260i brings the features and tools needed by production companies and broadcasters looking to migrate to file-based recording and playback environments. It records QuickTime files in either Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD video formats. Files recorded in these intra-frame codecs are ready for editing directly from the recorder in common editing environments, such as Avid, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding. For color-critical applications, the PIX 260i supports Apple ProRes 4444 through its 12-bit, 4:4:4 3G-SDI I/O. Users can also play out files from the PIX 260i for real-time applications.

Files are recorded simultaneously on up to four separate, 2.5” SSD storage devices via two front-panel PIX-CADDY slots and two rear-panel eSATAp connections. This redundancy in local, removable storage devices, coupled with standard Ethernet-based file transfer features further reduces steps in the production workflow. Recording to multiple drives offers immediate file backup, eliminating time-consuming post-record copying. Gigabit Ethernet network ports enable remote access to recorded files and the ability to transfer these files quickly into a post-production environment.

PIX 260i can also be controlled from browser-capable computers and tablets. When connected to a data network, transport and setup menu controls are available on PIXNET, which offers control of one or multiple PIX 260i recorders. Multiple units can be grouped for simultaneous control.

With version 1.03 firmware, available as a free download to existing PIX 260i users, PIX 260i provides support for the new Sound Devices PIX-CADDY CF accessory. The PIX-CADDY CF allows the PIX 260i to record polyphonic WAV files directly to removable CompactFlash cards (audio poly mode only). In addition, v1.03 enables users to record and playback Mono Audio Wave Files (audio only mode with SSD and HDD) and supports RS-422 locate to timecode, cue point commands and device type ID (Sony BVW-75 emulation). Version 1.03 also provides an added scene increment shortcut feature from the main screen and added options for displaying smaller audio meters in various parts of the main screen.

Also on-site will be the 664, Sound Devices’ flagship portable production mixer. The 664 features six ultra-low-noise, high-dynamic-range and transformer-less preamps that accept mic- or line-level signals and include analog peak limiters, high-pass filters, input trim control and direct outputs on every channel. Featuring full analog audio paths for high-performance audio and superb power efficiency, the 664 also has numerous digital capabilities. Inputs 1 and 6 can be selected as AES3 or AES42 inputs for digital microphones, each with its own SRC for simplicity in system clocking. The 664’s analog output compliment includes four output buses. The L and R buses are on balanced XLR, 10-Pin and TA-3M connectors and on unbalanced TA-3M or 3.5mm connectors. Secondary output buses X1 and X2 are available on balanced TA-3M connectors. Users can route inputs and buses to four AES3 connections for eight digital outputs on the XLR and 10-pin connectors.

Firmware version 1.05, also now available for existing customers as a free download, brings additional features to the already-powerful mixer, including greater flexibility and ease of use during outdoor production. The LCD Daylight Display Mode incorporates a daylight-specific color scheme for improved readability in sunlight. It also offers a new solid bar metering option for improved readability in direct sunlight. Sound Devices has also incorporated additional Front Panel button shortcuts, including LCD Daylight Display Mode (HP + SELECT encoders) and Phrase list (HP + RTN B/C) for fast entry of notes. Version 1.05 also incorporates the shortcut for activating the alternating Tone mode (SELECT + TONE)—if Tone Mode is set to Continuous in the menu, then (SELECT + TONE) activates L-Ident tone. Users also have a Track Names in Meters options (without color gradient/ramp) that are selectable for either right- or left-side display.

With version 1.05, 664 now offers users Monophonic Broadcast WAV file support, with the ability to record up to 10 tracks to two cards, three second pre-roll maximum. If a card not optimized for multi-channel monophonic file recording is used, or if the monophonic 10-track limit is exceeded, a warning message is displayed on the LCD when starting a recording. Polyphonic mode or reducing track count is recommended. In addition, when formatted in the 664, SD cards 64 GB and larger are now automatically formatted as ExFAT (in accordance with the SD Association’s recommendation). All CF cards and lower-capacity SD cards remain FAT32. Version 1.05 also enables a Headphone Volume or Headphone Preset default option, which sets the HP encoder to operate as headphone level or to select HP presets when rotated. Pressing the Headphone encoder momentarily activates the alternative function.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders, and digital video recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, and acoustical test and measurement applications. Founded in 1998, the company designs and manufactures from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI and Highland Park, IL.

PixelFLEX LED Panels Brighten Sunday Service

Thousands crowded into Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis recently for a Sunday service not soon to be forgotten. PixelFLEX LED Curtains adorned the church stage with a vivid, bright and high-quality video screen celebrating the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, adding a more lifelike feel to the service.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED Curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display, which is why Tony Morris, director of Technical Services for Bellevue, decided to utilize the panels for the performance backdrop.

“The flexibility really provides many advantages over the hard, inflexible panels,” said Morris. “Install and tear-down is extremely easy. Additionally, the rigging hardware on the top is simple to attach to the truss and the interconnection between the panels is all very straightforward.”

The production team cleared out the 75 ft. deep and 130 ft. wide stage, which usually has a 65 piece orchestra and a 200 voice choir, to have a clean slate for creating the atmosphere desired. The panels (20mm- 5 Panels) were used as a backdrop flown from a truss to enhance colors behind the singers, small band and pastor presenting during service that morning. The church’s stage has a trim height of about 45 ft. above the stage and the crew trimmed out the panels at 25 ft.

Videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection – PixelFLEX LED Curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. The high caliber visual components of the curtains come with equally impressive customer service assistance and without the need for an extensive budget.

Pleased with the overall ease of set-up and tear-down, as well as the accessibility of the product, Morris said they are looking at additional ways of using PixelFLEX in the future.

“It’s amazing just how bright those things are,” said Morris. “We plan to try to incorporate the PixelFLEX panels in more elaborate productions moving forward to maximize the worship experience for our congregation.”

Bellevue Baptist Church, founded in 1903 and based out of Memphis, Tenn., is led by Pastor Dr. Steve Gaines and provides in church services as well as podcasts and television services for its members.

Phoenix Audio Technologies Brings Enhanced Audio Conferencing Installment Capabilities To Education Market

Burbank, CA, August 13, 2013 – Phoenix Audio Technologies, a world leader in real time audio communications, recently expanded the capabilities of its conference speakerphone, the Quattro3, to meet the needs of the ever changing and growing learning environment. With the introduction of two new accessories for the Quattro3, the unit can now be mounted to the ceiling as well as be installed over 100 feet away from the power outlet and video codec. The exceptional pick up range, up to 20 feet, coupled with a powerful loud speaker, covers almost twice the area as traditional conference speakerphones. Thus making the Quattro3 the only conference speakerphone with the ability to cover a room while mounted to the ceiling. Broadcasting in full HD audio, the Quatto3 ensures a crystal clear audio environment for all participants.

The capabilities of the Quattro3 provide distance learning facilities with a more affordable alternative to traditional ceiling mount setups that require high-end microphones, audio mixers and speakers. The Quattro3 is an all-in-one device that has proven to be just as effective as high-priced installed audio conferencing systems. The plug-and-play features of the Quattro3 eliminate the need to individually test and balance each microphone in a room. The ease of setup makes the Quattro3 an easily deployed solution for all learning environments.

The patented beam forming and superior echo cancelling technologies in the Quattro3 guarantee top performance whether the unit is placed on a tabletop or mounted to the ceiling. The Quattro3 Power Hub extends the power and data connection range to distances over 100 feet.

“The Quattro3 is already a compact unit, perfect for mounting onto a ceiling with our ceiling mount kit. With the release of the Quattro3 Power Hub, there is no need for users to worry about how far the Quattro3 might be located from its power and data source. We are already seeing this solution utilized in a number of educational, as well as telemedicine applications,” says Jonathan Boaz, VP of Sales and Marketing at Phoenix Audio Technologies. “We are thrilled to be able to bring this type of solution to the education market and provide teachers, students and school faculty with an easy, clutter-free and superior audio performance for distance learning and video conferencing settings.”
