Christie Delivers Value, High Brightness With New G Series and E Series 1-Chip DLP Projectors

Unsurpassed Image Quality and a Wide Range of Features for Fixed Installation and Rental Staging Applications

Christie continues to lead the way for superior price/performance value and high brightness with today’s introduction of the G Series and four new E Series 1-chip DLP projectors. In the new G Series, the Christie DHD550-G and Christie DWU550-G provide 5000 lumens, 1-chip DLP technology and a single mercury-lamp design for fixed applications with better price performance and higher brightness than other projectors in their class. Similar to G Series, the four new E Series projectors deliver exceptional price performance, higher brightness, and increased flexibility and reliability for both fixed and rental staging applications.

Christie G Series Fills Market Need for High Value and High Brightness
At 5000 lumens and offering a choice between HD (1920 x 1080) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolutions, the Christie G Series is an excellent choice for board and conference rooms, government, houses of worship, higher education facilities and a variety of small venue applications.

Installation is easy with features like optional wireless connectivity, a suite of optional lenses and input options that include HDMI, DVI and display port. When it comes to image quality, the Dynamic Contrast feature boosts contrast ratios up to 5000:1, and Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture functionality provide flexible display options. And for multi-projector installations, the Christie G Series comes with color matching as well as an optional dual processing warp card that enables blending and warping.

“As customer requirements increase in a rapidly changing landscape, Christie is ahead of the curve in offering the affordable, yet feature-packed Christie G Series,” said George Tsintzouras, senior director, product management for Business Products at Christie. “The market has been asking for a product like this from Christie and we think our customers are going to love the new G series.”

Enhanced and Improved Christie E Series Features Higher Brightness for Fixed Installation and Rental Staging
Christie also added four new E Series projectors to its extensive product lineup today with the Christie DHD675-E, Christie DWU675-E, Christie DHD775-E and the Christie DWU775-E.

The new Christie E Series models are built on 1-chip DLP technology and a dual lamp design that provides increased brightness ranging from 6450 to 7200 lumens, a choice between HD (1920 x 1080) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolutions, and delivers up to 5000:1 contrast ratio thanks to the Dynamic Contrast feature. In addition, the new Christie E Series offers easy connectivity, incredible image quality and DLP reliability.

“With the inclusion of display port inputs, brightness tracking and optional wireless connectivity, these new models are ideal for boardrooms, conference rooms, auditoriums, venues, government, houses of worship and higher education spaces,” said Tsintzouras.

“Additional benefits of the new Christie E Series are the optional dual processor warp module for blending and warping images, color matching and an optional stacking system making it ideal for applications requiring geometric adjustments and/or multi-projector setups used in rental and staging applications.”

The new Christie E Series models feature a dust-sealed light engine and dual mercury lamps that have the unique ability to optimize lamp configuration to maximize lamp operation in 24/7 applications. Also included is a high brightness six-segment color wheel (RGBCYW) with an optional rich color wheel (RGBCYM) available when color precision is vital. The color wheel ensures radiant colors while eliminating artifacts from rapidly moving content, leaving audiences with the sharpest images.

Tsintzouras concluded, “Christie is proud to extend its 1-chip DLP product family with these four new Christie E Series models and the new Christie G Series, bringing higher brightness, powerful features and incredible value to our customers.”

Christie E Series will be on display at LDI October 19-21 and Solutions that Rock – a Christie sponsored event – in Philadelphia November 7-8 while the new G Series will be at EDUCAUSE in Denver November 7-8.

Both the Christie G Series and Christie E Series models have a three-year parts and labor warranty backed by Christie’s renowned sales and service support. The new projectors ship in November.

Christie Digital Cinema Projectors Flexed Their “Super Powers” In The IGN Theater At New York Comic Con 2012

Preferred Integrator Digital Media Systems Chose Christie Solaria Projectors for Screenings in the Special Events Hall at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC.

As thousands of comic book and science fiction enthusiasts dressed in elaborate character costumes flocked to New York Comic Con, Christie digital cinema projectors flexed their own brand of “super powers” in the IGN theater. Preferred Christie integrator, Digital Media Systems, installed two Christie Solaria Series projectors to light up the theater in the special events hall, 1D, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, October 11 – 14.

New York Comic Con is a convention dedicated to celebrating all the latest in the comic book, graphic novel, video game and pop culture entertainment industries. Attracting more than 105,000 science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts, it is the second largest annual event held in New York City. At the event, fans from near and far gather to meet and greet their favorite celebrities, writers and animators, catch new movie trailers, and find unique, rare and popular collectibles from the science fiction universe on sale.

“We were thrilled to provide digital cinema projection through our trusted partner, Digital Media Systems, at this fun and very special convention,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Christie Entertainment Solutions. “As the undisputed leader in digital cinema, we are pleased that our projectors helped filmmakers demonstrate to their eager fans the full gamut of special effects in brilliant color and high definition. When it comes to delivering superior image quality and unmatched brightness, Christie projectors certainly have their own ‘super powers’ for the job.”

Two for the Show
The concentration of this targeted, energetic fan base makes it a prime opportunity for directors and studios to generate buzz by showcasing their latest exclusive footage and previews. This required a digital projection system of the highest quality to ensure the most accurate depiction of the filmmakers’ vision. For the screenings, organizers entrusted Gregg Paliotta, president and owner of Digital Media Systems, to install Christie DLP Cinema digital projectors in the main hall for the second year in a row. He selected two Christie CP2230 2K projectors, one for each of the two 13-foot by 24-foot screens that dominated the right and left sides of the theater stage.

“We showed a 3D movie with a Christie projector and RealD 3D last year and got a great response; everyone was very pleased with the incredible picture quality. Our role was expanded this year with Christie delivering all the projected content in the hall and for one special 3D event,” said Paliotta. “The theater holds about 2,800 people and is the center of programming for the show, so we were very excited about all the events to unfold with the Christie projectors lighting up the venue. And, of course, the Christie projectors delivered as promised.”

Among the anticipated scheduled events to be projected were the first public screening of footage from “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2”; and exclusive footage from “The Bay,” an eco-horror movie from Oscar®-winning director Barry Levinson and the producers of “Paranormal Activity”. The cast of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” also held a panel to discuss and present an exclusive clip from the season 3 premiere.

Christie is the Display ‘Superhero’
For Paliotta, Christie is “the real hero” when it comes to delivering the most powerful performances for these high profile situations. “We worked with the same people as last year and knew they were counting on us to deliver – which is why we chose Christie,” he said. “We use Christie projectors exclusively because the company is the only one we trust to give us the performance and reliability we need.”

Digital Media Systems provides complete equipment and engineering support for world premieres and event screenings. It also provides multiplex and screening room installation service and maintenance.

Christie Nitro Solutions Add Bite to Discovery Channel’s Shark Week 25th Anniversary Celebration

The Christie® YK200 dual-arm yoke was part of the recent 25th anniversary celebration of Shark Week, the popular Discovery Channel program that details the lives of one of nature’s most intriguing and feared predators. Attended by press, producers and friends of the network from around the world, the festivities took place at the Beverly Hilton hotel poolside.

Part of the Christie Nitro Solutions family of moving digital luminaires, the Christie YK200 featured an installed Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projector displaying moving sharks in the pool while six Christie Roadster S+20K 3-chip DLP projectors displayed images of the imposing creatures on a large wall.

“The six Christie Roadster S+20K projectors created a 1:3 blend that was then stacked for double brightness,” said Joel St-Denis, product manager, Christie. “A Christie YK200 yoke with a Christie HD20K-J projector was used to move sharks around the entire pool, achieving with a single projector what would normally require several projectors.”

Designed for staging and event applications, Christie Nitro Solutions offers three yoke models to choose from. Each yoke provides a platform to move and control a variety of Christie video projectors via DMX protocol – allowing integration of lighting equipment and video projectors easily with the same control console. These versatile yokes can be flown, rigged or set up at floor level, according to application needs.

“The reason that I love [Christie] Nitro is because it moves a 20K projector,” said Bart Kresa, principal, BARTKRESA Design. “And in this event … in order to do this across the whole pool, we probably would have had to set up six 20K projectors. With the [Christie] Nitro, we can use one projector and then create an animation. When we move the animation and the projector around, it looks natural. The sharks are moving around the pool but it sort of gives the sense that the whole pool is filled with an image.”

Contributing to the success of the ‘Shark Week’ display provided by Nitro Solutions was the Pandoras Box media manager and server, which, according to Jared Leunis of coolux® Media Systems managed the movement of the Christie YK200 yoke and the sharks’ movement throughout the pool.

“Five years ago, doing something like this was quite a bit more difficult because we had to measure and calculate everything, and everything had to be very, very precise,” concluded Kresa. “The cool thing about the new technology is that working with digital projectors and with digital tools, we can pre-design everything.”

Christie Digital Cinema Projectors Screen World Premiere of Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” in Brilliant 3D at New York Film Festival

A Festival Sponsor, Christie is Among “The Brightest Stars” of NYFF Opening Night Celebrations.

The highly anticipated world premiere in 3D of Academy Award® winning director Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” was projected at Alice Tully Hall this weekend using acclaimed Christie Solaria digital cinema projectors as part of the 50th Annual New York Film Festival opening night celebrations.

'Life of Pi' lead actor Suraj Sharma (l.) and director Ang Lee at the New York Film Festival.

Preferred Christie dealer Digital Media Systems selected and installed two powerful Christie CP4230 DLP Cinema projectors and synchronized their images on screen to meet the demands of the festival organizers, who required double the brightness levels of typical 3D presentations to more accurately depict Ang Lee’s epic 3D film, a fantasy about a boy stranded on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. The film kicked off the prestigious festival, setting the tone for the scores of other screenings and special events on tap, including workshops and panel discussions, many of which will feature today’s most influential filmmakers and industry leaders, from September 28 through October 14.

In addition to Alice Tully Hall, the festival is utilizing other venues on the Lincoln Center Campus, including the Walter Reade Theater, and the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, which includes the Francesca Beale Theater, Howard Gilman Theater and the Amphitheater.

“We are pleased to be a sponsor of the New York Film Festival,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions at Christie. “As the undisputed leader in digital cinema with the largest number of digital cinema installations worldwide, Christie has earned a solid reputation as an industry innovator whose groundbreaking technology has revolutionized the digital cinema landscape. It’s our privilege to ‘play’ the premier venue at the New York Film Festival, and to be in the excellent company of some of the most creative and visionary filmmakers of our time.”

Gregg Paliotta, president and owner of Digital Media Systems, noted that festival organizers have worked with him in the past, and so placed complete trust in him to provide them with the best digital projectors available to meet their needs. Representing 20th Century Fox, which is distributing the film and is also a Festival sponsor, Paliotta selected the Christie CP4230 projectors for their exceptional performance on the large screen. The two-projector system helped deliver an unprecedented level of brightness, image clarity, and realism.

“They wanted the most reliable, most powerful projection system in the industry to achieve the higher level of brightness required for the 3D ‘Life of Pi’, ensuring the visual impact that
Ang Lee sought to bring his cinematic vision to life,” he said. “There was never any doubt in my mind that Christie was the only one that could meet such a challenge in terms of image brightness, while still maintaining deep color saturation and razor-sharp resolution. Christie was a huge success last year when I used them for the advance screening of Martin Scorsese’s highly acclaimed film, ‘Hugo,’ and I was confident that Christie would again surpass all expectations this year.”

Paliotta added: “The feedback from the audience was remarkable. The picture was visually stunning. Everyone was beyond blown away by how it looked. Without a doubt, it was a fantastic screening and an unforgettable evening.”

Christie is Projection Sponsor of Vancouver International Film Festival

Christie’s State-Of-The-Art Projection Lights up Films from Around the Globe.

Christie, a world leader in advanced cinema technologies, is proud to again sponsor the Vancouver International Film Festival, for which Christie will provide digital cinema projectors from its Christie Solaria Series, as well as Cine-IPM 2K image processors. The festival, one of North America’s leading cinema events, is bringing hundreds of new films to the city September 27 to October 14.

“It is only through the support of Christie that we are able to maintain the standards of excellence that filmmakers expect and deserve,” said Alan Franey, Festival Director & CEO, Vancouver International Film Festival.

The projectors and equipment, to be installed and managed by Christie partner Zoom Audio Visual Networks, will ensure that festivalgoers enjoy their cinematic selections in the crisp colors, brilliant image quality and 3D possibilities available only through state-of-the-art digital projection.

“Christie’s technology and support have made it possible to transform many of the Festival’s screens to digital,” said Michael Stewart, president of Zoom. “Their exceptional image quality and expert service help make the festival a big success for exhibitors and patrons alike.”

Dave Muscat, Christie’s senior director of sales for Canada added that, “Our participation in major film festivals is part of our commitment to the Canadian and international film industries. Our network of highly skilled and dedicated integration partners helps us make it happen, and Zoom’s work on VIFF is indicative of that commitment.”

In terms of admissions and number of films screened (about 150,000 attendees and almost 380 films), VIFF is among the five largest film festivals in North America. The international lineup includes selections from the world’s top film festivals as well as numerous titles from smaller studios and providers. VIFF screens the largest selection of East Asian films outside of that region, is one of the biggest showcases of Canadian film in the world (with 80 Canadian titles this year alone being screened) and includes a large and significant non-fiction program.

Kathryn Cress, vice president, global and corporate marketing at Christie, notes that Christie’s digital solutions are helping festivals as well as the industry in general with the transition to digital projection. “Christie’s state-of-the-art projection technologies and skilled business partners make our firm the preferred choice for film festivals across the globe. And the arrangement with the Vancouver festival has a strong Canadian component, as Christie is the only provider of high-performance digital cinema projectors with its main engineering and major manufacturing site located in Kitchener, Ontario.”

Christie digital projectors are used by leading film festivals around the globe, including the Toronto International Film Festival. This year, Christie renewed its official technical sponsorship of the Festival de Cannes for the next three years, a position it has held since 2006. In addition, Christie was the exclusive projection sponsor of the “Water for Elephants” screening at the opening gala of the 14th Shanghai International Film Festival last year. This year, Christie’s DLP Cinema 4K resolution projector platform will support screenings at the 56th BFI London Film Festival October 10 to 21 with 2K projectors from Christie’s Solaria Series also being used by cinemas supporting the festival.

Christie equipment is found in more than half of all DLP Cinema® projection rooms – about 33,000 projectors – installed worldwide and utilizing a global network of skilled installation and support partners, Christie serves exhibitors of all sizes with products and services that provide the best cinema experience for exhibitors and their guests.

Christie’s Commitment to HFR
The two main goals of Christie’s HFR activities are to help the industry develop the best high frame rate (HFR) content and the best delivery system for HFR content. The first goal involves assisting leading-edge filmmakers and post-production companies in perfecting HFR movie creation, so the industry has the most engaging, entertaining content possible. The second goal is to assist exhibitors in showing these 3D HFR movies in all their glory. To these ends, Christie is helping create the standards for 3D HFR movies through the formal and informal technology-development alliances with major producers and directors, post-production facilities, studios and technology partners. On the exhibitor front, Christie provides one stop shopping for all the hardware, software and services that enable exhibitors to deliver a filmmaker’s vision in stunning 3D HFR quality.

Christie Technology Assists FishNet Security With High-Level Protection

Two Christie® MicroTiles® video walls and three Christie DHD800 1-chip DLP® projectors are helping keep watch at FishNet Security in Overland Park, Kan. FishNet Security is the largest information security solutions provider in North America, with clients in energy, financial services, government, healthcare, retail and other industry sectors.

FishNet Security, which serves most Fortune 500 companies, wanted its move into its new state-of-the-art headquarters earlier this year to include the best available technology, which is why Christie® was chosen for many of the company’s visual technology needs.

“When we bring clients and guests through our facility, it’s important to show them our latest solutions,” said Max Dodge, vice president of Sales at FishNet Security. “For that reason we brought in top-quality vendors like Christie to help us achieve that goal.”

Christie MicroTiles Lobby Display Welcomes Visitors While Curved Christie MicroTiles Video Wall Monitors Global Threats On-Screen
A 10-unit wide by 6-unit high Christie MicroTiles array greets guests in the lobby of the new headquarters as they step off the elevator. Powered by Christie Jumpstart, the video wall displays dynamic, rich media content provided by FishNet Security’s in-house Multimedia Group.

“This particular Christie MicroTiles array is flush with the wall and features vibrant graphics, which means people notice the content quickly,” said Justin Copeland, director of Multimedia at FishNet Security. “Guests immediately see their own names or those of the corporations they represent on the MicroTiles.”

In the company’s Security Operations Center (SOC), a 22-unit wide by 7-unit high curved Christie MicroTiles video wall supported by a frame created by RP Visual Solutions displays threat intelligence data, various monitoring tool dashboards, open work tickets, active service calls and other Java-based applications.

“When there is a security concern or other issue, they project and share that information with their colleagues and supervisors,” Dodge added. “Everyone then analyzes it and the appropriate action is taken. There is also a constant security monitor globe displayed on the MicroTiles wall that tracks information security threats from around the world.”

Christie MicroTiles have built-in sensors that monitor each LED’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness and color continuously for the life of the display. Built with reliable solid-state components, each LED is rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness. Combining both DLP® projection and LED technology, Christie MicroTiles offer super-fine resolution, substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than most conventional LCD and plasma flat panel technology.

Whether installed to perfectly represent the company brand or for mission-critical applications, Christie MicroTiles deliver 24/7 reliability and a low cost of ownership.

Three Christie DHD800 1-chip DLP® Projectors Display on the Largest Corporate Touch Screen in the United States
FishNet Security’s Executive Briefing Center (EBC) Viewing Gallery features a custom-built interactive touch screen display provided by Float 4 Interactive. Measuring 33-feet across by 7-feet high, the smart glass technology enables HD presentations to be directed from three Christie DHD800 projectors suspended from the ceiling to avoid interfering with sightlines. A giant “navigation wheel” on the screen enables users to launch applications and display interactive content with the touch of a finger.

“The Christie DHD800 projectors work superbly in the high ambient light, which is both natural and artificial,” Copeland said. “It’s a 5760×1080 resolution picture, and we’re creating videos at this resolution for maximum impact.”

Suitable for fixed installs and live events, the Christie DHD800 offers full HD and high-brightness in a 1-chip DLP® projector along with a user-changeable, twin-color-wheel system that provides the flexibility to tailor presentations to maximize high-brightness images and achieve superior-color reproduction. Ideal for 24/7 operation, the Christie DHD800 includes a lamp-interval feature that enables you to select the usage times between the dual-lamps for balanced lamp life.

“With their clean lines, minimal footprint and no visible hardware, the Christie MicroTiles fit the bill perfectly,” Dodge said. “Not only are the Christie MicroTiles video walls functional, they are also showpieces. No one leaves here without being in complete awe of the technology they see.”
