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.

Prestige and Performance on Display at the Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français With XPAND 3D Infinity System

DEAUVILLE, France – Delivering the very best quality and style in 3D cinema in one of the world’s largest and most innovative film markets, an XPAND 3D Infinity system was used at the 67th Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français (National Federation of French Cinemas).

“France is celebrated for its progressive and innovative attitude towards film and the Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français is one of the largest events of the year for the French film industry. As such, there can be no compromises when it comes to technology, which is why our Infinity 3D system is ideal for this event,” said Alain Rémond, President of Sales and Business Development, XPAND 3D. “No other 3D cinema system can match the scalability, quality and stylish appearance of Infinity, which is truly the best system to bring filmmakers’ artistic visions to life!”

The XPAND Infinity 3D glasses provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses’ lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema.

XPAND 3D’S NEW PASSIVE SYSTEMS RESET EXPECTATIONS IN SPECTACULAR FASHION!

DEAUVILLE, France – In a move to provide cinema industry professionals with more quality and choice than ever before possible, XPAND 3D — the leader in multidimensional imaging and pioneer of active shutter technologies — today introduced a new passive solution that delivers performance, comfort and commercial versatility to new, broader markets. The new XPAND Polarizer and Color Spacer passive systems will feature stunning new glasses that are lighter, more ergonomic and certainly more stylish than anything on the market today.

Commenting on the announcement, Maria Costeira, Chief Executive Officer, XPAND 3D noted, “XPAND 3D is singularly committed to advancing the consumer experience of multidimensional imaging and whereas our active shutter technologies are deployed by the world’s leading cinemas and for the studios’ most important premieres, we recognized that a sizable market was being under-served with sub-par passive technologies. Recognizing that only passive technology could meet the commercial needs of this group, we elected to design a superior solution that would elevate the performance threshold of passive 3D. I am thrilled that our new XPAND passive systems exceed all expectations on price and performance.”

XPAND 3D passive glasses reflect well on the theater and make for a more comfortable viewing experience. The new XPAND Infinity glasses are high-end 3D glasses, which provide the brightest, most vivid and realistic 3D images available. XPAND Infinity glasses are also optimized to work with laser projectors, making it the optimal future-proof 3D system. The glasses are available in adult and children sizes.

All new XPAND cinema systems and glasses fully support HFR (High Frame Rate) double and single flash at 96fps, 120fps, 144fps, 192fps, 240fps and even variable fps. The Infinity 3D glasses provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses’ lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema.

XPAND offers a wide range of high-end IR systems that cover spaces from 10 to more than 5,000 seats. The XPAND Polarizer 3D system, a cost-effective 3D cinema solution using high-quality disposable circularly polarized 3D glasses and active projector polarizer with full support of all HFR formats. The system works with all digital cinema projectors and requires the usage of a high-gain silver screen. Due to the high gain screen usage, the XPAND Polarizer system is recommended only for cinemas that are used exclusively for 3D movies. Hybrid cinemas that are used for both 2D and 3D movies are recommended not use silver screens, due to the viewing zones and hot spot problems.

XPAND 3D Color Spacer is a passive, color wavelength-based 3D cinema solution. XPAND Color Spacer uses two cinema projectors, a matt white screen and reusable passive Color Spacer glasses. This solution is specifically designed for special venues that want to use passive glasses with a matt white screen. The system is recommended only with extra bright projectors due to the light output limitations of color wavelength filtering.

XPAND 3D systems are installed in cinemas worldwide, with 70 percent of the 3D cinema market share in Asia and more than 50 percent in mainland Europe. XPAND 3D glasses and systems are the default choice for VIP theaters, studio screening rooms, celebrities’ home cinemas, government presentations and high-quality 3D presentations. XPAND 3D is the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival, and is used for the biggest 3D Premieres globally.

“There is no question that active shutter technology provides the optimal visual experience,” Costeira added. “But in many cases our customers have a stratified approach to offer ‘good,’ ‘better’ and ‘best theaters based on price and performance criteria. They have come to rely on XPAND 3D for technology and service at the ‘better’ and ‘best’ and have asked us to develop a solution for the broader entry level. We waited until a time that we could make a quantitative difference in the passive experience and yet do so at a price that would work. I believe we have achieved this dual goal in spectacular fashion!”

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, 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.

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.
