Integrity to Be Honored With Christie Award

Christie®, a global provider of visual display solutions, is pleased to announce that Integrity Entertainment Systems, LLC (“Integrity”), led by President Gary Engvold, has been recognized by Christie for its recent milestone of more than 1,000 installations of Christie® Solaria® projectors for its customers, which include some of the leading chains and independent cinemas in the U.S.

The award will be presented at ShowEast (Oct. 21-24) at the Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa, Hollywood, Florida.

Craig Sholder, vice president of Christie’s Entertainment Solutions group, congratulated Engvold and Integrity on the award. “Integrity realizes the importance of providing a total solution to its exhibitor customers and does so by communicating to its customers the advantage of all of Christie’s cinema products and services, including our theatre management software, digital signage and network operations center (NOC) facilities, in addition to our world-class digital cinema projectors.”

“We are honored to be chosen by Christie for this award, which recognizes the efforts of all our team in serving our growing customer base,” said Gary Engvold, president of Integrity. “We choose Christie for the overwhelming majority of our installations, as do our exhibition customers. Christie provides the brightest, highest-quality images for cinema and alternative content projections, with practically no downtime during conversions, and superior after-sale service and support. The range of 2K to 4K resolutions, plus options for 3D and high frame rate projection, make Christie the projection solution for now and the future.

“As well, Christie goes the extra mile in not just supplying excellent products and service support, but also helps me prospect new customers and obtain their digital-conversion financing. That makes a standard business arrangement become a true value-added relationship.”

Integrity is a full-service cinema supply company, created in 2002. Through partnerships with some of the industry’s leading suppliers, it creates custom solutions for projection, seating, point-of-sale, concession and lobby areas.

Integrity is currently installing Christie Solaria Series digital cinema projectors at a number of theatres across the USA. These include Clearview Theaters across the eastern USA, as a result of that chain’s acquisition in April 2013 by Bow Tie Cinemas. At the time, Bow Tie announced that it intended “to make a substantial investment in the newly-acquired Clearview theaters, including Chelsea Cinemas, to fund key upgrades that are designed to enhance the movie-going experience for customers, including digital projection and 3D installations, concession stand upgrades, decorative improvements and point of sale technology that will allow Bow Tie to enhance its customer loyalty programs.”

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.

Casio Takes DJ Equipment to the Next Level at DJ Expo

ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY, August 14, 2013 – Casio is excited to announce its participation in the world’s largest annual gathering of professional DJs, the 2013 DJ Expo presented by DJ Times magazine. DJ Times magazine presented its first DJ Expo in 1990 and 23 years later, it has become the DJ industry’s best-attended trade show/exhibition. Casio will not only exhibit its XW series of synthesizers, but it will also showcase its SLIM projector line on August 12-15, 2013 at the Trump Taj  Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ.

“DJ and musicians want the freedom to mix their performances on the fly to get the crowd moving,” said Stephen Schmidt, vice president of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “That is why we are excited to show off our latest Casio XW series of synthesizers at the 2013 DJ Expo. The XW series gives DJs and musicians of varying levels the ability to create their own unique sound by building performances and hits that push the envelope while getting crowds dancing.”

The XW-G1 Groove Synthesizer was specifically designed for the DJ and club performer providing an interactive step sequencer and a sample looper for digitally capturing performance patterns and external instruments. The XW-P1 is a 61 key performance synthesizer equipped with Casio’s exclusive Hybrid Processing Sound Source. It provides screaming virtual analog monophonic leads and basses, drawbar organs, complex layers, stereo pianos, drums and more. With the sounds and real-time control, the XW-P1 offers a variety of advanced features and technological functions performing musicians need.

Providing everything from pulsing dance grooves to animated synth textures and arpeggios, the Step Sequencer in both the XW-P1 and XW-G1 is the first of its kind. With nine tracks for drums, basses, synths and chordal parts, four controller tracks for adding panning, filter changes and other animation to existing parts and eight patterns that make up each sequence; the user can build and mix their performance on the fly. Sequences can even transpose live from the keyboard, providing a completely interactive experience. The XW’s unique six oscillator design can emulate classic analog synths, and create powerful leads and huge bass sounds. Tracks in the Step Sequencer can even drive other MIDI devices and computer applications including the iPad®.

In addition to its XW series of synthesizers, Casio will also showcase its SLIM projector line, specifically the XJ-A251 as a video solution for DJs. The SLIM projector’s 2X power zoom lens will project a large image from close range (60″ diagonal at 6 feet) without taking a lot of space and its multiple inputs can project content from a wide assortment of devices including a computer, DVD player or a video camera for live video.

“Today, many DJs are adding video elements into their performances and they need projectors that are portable but still deliver great quality and wide screen resolutions,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “With their lightweight and slim design, Casio’s SLIM projectors are ideal for DJs who travel from gig to gig and need equipment to fit their needs. Our SLIM series is not only compact, but is rich in features ideal for the DJ space.”

Weighing in at only five pounds, Casio’s SLIM projectors are 1.7 inches wide, making them the thinnest high brightness projectors in the industry. The SLIM projectors are powered by Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source and DLP technology that provides LampFreeTM, eco-friendly data projection at a fraction of the cost of traditional projectors. Casio’s
LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source combines blue laser light and a fluorescent element to generate a high output of green light. The green light, blue laser light, and the light emitted by a red LED are projected through a DLP® chip which, in turn, is passed through the projection lens to form an image. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector’s total cost of ownership and maximizing investment. Finally, all of Casio’s SLIM projectors are LampFreeTM, which delivers hours of reliable operation without concerns for a dark screen or high frequent costs of mercury lamp replacement.

Calibre UK hits the big screen to process alternative content at Europe’s largest international film festival

Europe’s largest international film event, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF) relied on none other than Calibre UK for scaling and switching of alternative cinema content. Provided by Prague-based system integration, rental and staging experts Altei, HQView400DC processors were integrated with Sony 4K digital cinema projectors located throughout multiple cinemas that were used for event screenings.

Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF) took place between June 28 to July 6 in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. The event attracted over 12,000 film industry representatives and press from all around the world.

All guests had the opportunity to experience first-hand the immersive quality of digital cinema technology to give the very highest picture quality and viewer experience.

“The quality of the Calibre UK processing was essential to achieve best results combining alternative – non DCP content and Sony Digital Cinema projectors,” says Martin Vysušil, Sales & Marketing at Altei.

“Calibre UK HQView400DC alternative content processors were used for screening of movies from various sources including Digital Betacam, HD Cam, DVD and BluRay.”

Pauline Brooksbank, Managing Director at Calibre UK says: “We’re delighted Altei are relying on the flexible, robust and seamless processing from Calibre UK at the KVIFF as they have done so successfully in previous years.”

Christie Display Technology and Adtech Systems Deliver Lifelike Images and Outstanding Customer Service at Boston College

With a commitment to fostering and imparting knowledge, Boston College has earned its reputation as one of America’s top institutions of higher learning. Therefore, when it was time to upgrade the projection technology at the storied college, Adtech Systems Inc., installed more than 70 Christie® projectors to deliver course material, lectures and presentations in classrooms and auditoriums.

After a successful demonstration, the school is replacing old product with Christie and calling it a great choice. “The (Christie) price point is fantastic compared to any other manufacturer. We had another manufacturer come in – offering all kinds of incentives and programs – and the product just didn’t meet what we wanted and the price point wasn’t right,” said Jim Clements CTS, project manager, Media Technology Services, Boston College. “Nobody comes close to offering what Christie offers. If you can install a Christie projector, why would you buy anything else?”

The seminar rooms are outfitted with Christie LWU420 projectors while a larger, theater-style 80-seat auditorium has a 1-chip DLP® Christie DHD800. Clements confirmed that one Christie LX700 and one Christie DHD675-E are slated for installation in the Fine Arts department.

The 8000 ANSI lumens Christie DHD800 offers full HD and high-brightness in a 1-chip DLP® projector, making it ideally suited for Boston College’s large auditorium. The Christie DHD675-E delivers lifelike color reproduction and its Dynamic Contrast is perfect for the smaller collaborative classrooms and meeting rooms.

“We also have several Christie LWU505 projectors in three different campuses in a number of different buildings including the Arts and Sciences building, which we just built,” said Clements. “The Arts and Sciences building is a 200,000 square foot, gothic-style facility with 54 classrooms using the LWU505 projectors right now.”

More Christie Technology on the Way
“As Bill Copley (Northeast Territory Sales Manager, Christie) and Adtech can see from future projects, we’ve gone out of our comfort zone in model type and we’re starting to incorporate a number of different models. That kind of success just breeds more success for us to go back to the product,” added Clements. “Bill has brought flat panel technologies to my attention. We have a sporting facility that we’re looking at doing some upgrades there – maybe we want to put in some of these environment-safe outdoor panels (Christie FHD551-W). Maybe we want to put in some video walls. Based on our experiences with Christie, it would certainly lead us to follow its product line.

“Bill (Copley) and Matt Fionda of Adtech Systems have been fantastic. Everything that Christie has promised and offered us they have delivered. That says a lot, certainly in this market. A guarantee or warranty is one thing, but to stand behind it and prove it just continues our partnership with Christie and Adtech as long as I’m here.”

Phase Two of the project – which includes an additional 20 projectors – will see a Christie L2K1000 installed in the 200-person capacity auditorium located in the Admissions/Fine Arts building that also hosts general classes and a 20-foot wide screen.

SIM2 Miami Road Show Exceeds Expectations

Miramar, Florida—July 2013—SIM2’s top dealer partners attending the SIM2 Road Show in Miami are calling the first two days of the three-day tour a resounding success. The exclusive event is designed to provide dealers with an unprecedented opportunity to view some of the company’s most advanced technological achievements to date—the CINEMAQUATTRO, SIRIO, M.150, LUMIS, NERO, and the limited-edition FUORISERIE home cinema projectors.

Bill Petters, of Sound Components, in Miami, said of the event, “What impressed me the most is the wide range of products that SIM2 has come to market with. Not only are the products extremely high performance, but they can be installed by integrators like our company, and are practical for end users—simple solutions with various price points. depending on the level of performance a client wants to get into. SIM2 has a very nice, wide range, from entry level to state of the art—it’s a great solution for us.” Bill’s favorite was the M.150. “The depth of field, color saturation, black levels, and brightness were simply outstanding.”

Stan Beran, of Sound Performance, in Miami, said, “First, I’m impressed with the amount of projectors on display, starting from a couple-hundred thousand to things more reasonable, around 10 to 12 thousand. What really knocked me out is the [M.150] LED projector, for people who like fine lines and details—it’s probably the best one I’ve ever seen. If you want the punch and attack, having the double stack SIRIO is a knockout for people—even one by itself is very bright.”

SIM2's CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K 3-Chip DLP Home Cinema Projector

The star of the show was SIM2’s CINEMAQUATTRO, a 4K DLP 3-Chip Home Cinema Projector. Some of the key specifications are: three 4K (4096 x 2160), 1.38” DLP chipsets, up to 25,000 ANSI Lumens; Triple Flash 3D Technology; SIM2’s Exclusive High Contrast and Colorimetry Profiles; a user-replaceable Xenon Bubble Lamp; remote monitoring and so much more.

“With a third day yet to be completed, we have already exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance and excitement for this event,” said Maurizio Cini, CEO and President of SIM2. “Our guests in Miami were among the first in the U.S. to witness the amazing power of full 4K resolution from the CINEMAQUATTRO, along with a comprehensive demonstration of our full line of solutions. Based on the feedback from those attending, and building on the anticipated success of additional tour stops, we expect to see a dramatic growth in business over the remainder of 2013—even surpassing the positive trend we’ve seen in the past quarter.”

The 2013 SIM2 Road Show represents an extraordinary business opportunity for SIM2 partners, with the opportunity for one-on-one meetings with key company executives, crucial forecasting information and special product demonstrations. The U.S. portion of the tour includes additional stops in Los Angeles, August 20-22, and in New York City, September 3-5.
