Bellevue’s Bake’s Place Boosts Business By Increasing Entertainment Value With Hitachi Projector

Bellevue, Washington, May 27, 2014 – Like its home city of Bellevue, bar/bistro Bake’s Place has grown from quaint beginnings into a high-tech destination. Bake’s Place serves up delicious food, special event nights and frequent concerts, which are boosted by a Hitachi CP-WX8255A projector.

Owner and founder Craig Baker, who has been in the music and restaurant business for 16 years, wanted to improve his venue’s traffic on slow weeknights. Perfectly timed with the Seattle Seahawks’ stellar NFL season, he bought a Hitachi CP-WX8255A projector to show Monday night games on a 24 x 14-foot screen inside the restaurant. After seeing an increase in sales, he began using the projector for special events like the Academy Awards and the Super Bowl, the latter of which amassed a 100-person waitlist after selling out quickly.

“We’re not a sports bar, but people were more than happy to pay for a ticket during the Super Bowl,” said Mr. Baker. “Businesses will often rent out the restaurant and they’ve been grateful for the ability to easily project presentations. We use a special backdrop with custom ripples, colors and special effects that’s definitely boosted several band performances.”

Located a few blocks away from the center of downtown Bellevue, Bake’s Place features a 3,500-square-foot patio. Its indoor dining area, also 3,500 square feet, boasts 18-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and casts a sophisticated atmosphere, complemented by the Hitachi projector.

“Our customers have been very impressed by the projector’s image clarity, especially on such a large screen,” said Mr. Baker. “It has definitely helped Bake’s Place create a unique experience for both regular and first-time customers.”

The Hitachi CP-WX8255A 3LCD projector features 5,500 ANSI lumens brightness and an aspect ratio of 16:10 (WXGA).

Christie Technology Takes Visitors on Spectacular Coast to Coast Visual Journey

Christie® technology is taking people on an unforgettable journey across Canada – without flight delays, congested airports or jetlag. A spectacular new flight simulation ride called Fly Over® Canada launches guests into a thrilling immersive experience including the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rockies, cosmopolitan cities, the rugged East Coast and more via the Christie D4K35603-chip DLP® projector and images produced by Sherpas Cinema.

Christie Projectors are used in Fly Over Canada

Installed at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Fly Over Canada also features Uplift, a preshow presentation produced by the award winning Montreal-based Moment Factory using eight Christie DWU675-E 1-chip DLP® projectors.

Christie: The Brightest and the Best Choice
“As we built up the company we started talking to Christie about various aspects of this project. Moment Factory then specified Christie for the preshow projectors so that got us hooked up with the (Christie) DWU670-E projectors,” said Eric Sambell, director, construction &technology, Soaring Attractions.

“After considerable research by the technical and creative team at Soaring Attractions, the owner/operator of Fly Over Canada concluded that Christie was also the clear 4K projector choice for the main ride.

“We chose the Christie D4K3560 projector solution because we needed the brightness and intensity to light a 19-meter diameter surface area. Obviously we needed the brightest projector and as much resolution as we could get,” continued Sambell. “That meant a 4K solution but because it’s a motion ride we needed 60 hertz to avoid motion blur – which led us to the D4K3560.”

The Christie D4K3560 projector is part of the Christie TruLife™ electronics platform offering customers superior image and video quality for the most comfortable and realistic viewing experience.

Christie Steps up and does it Right
“The projector sits out on a perch, which made it a bit of challenge but the installation went smoothly and Christie made sure everything was perfect; they came through with everything right when we needed it. Everyone, from the Christie field application engineers to Geoff Chick (central and western regional sales manager, Canada), really stepped up and made things right.”

The show opened last summer and, according to Sambell, ran at capacity on weekends and well-exceeded expectations in the months that followed. He said people have returned up to ten times and the reaction from people of all ages has been overwhelmingly positive.

Christie DWU675-E1-chip DLP® projectors provide trusted performance, reliability and exceptional image quality. Ideal for small auditoriums, boardrooms, classrooms and houses of worship, the Christie DWU675-E delivers image blending and warping, stacking capabilities and precision color matching for use in either fixed or rental staging applications.

Studio Tenn Chooses Hitachi for Tennessee Performing Arts Center Production

Nashville, Tennessee, May 20, 2014 – Hitachi’s CP-WX8265 projector was instrumental in Studio Tenn’s critically acclaimed debut of Charles Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Polk Theater.

Located in Nashville, the James K. Polk Theater is an intimate proscenium theater for its size, with a maximum seating capacity of 1,075. The distance from the projection booth to the back wall of the set is 102 feet and the projection area is approximately 56 x 20 feet.

“We found the Hitachi projector to be very bright and quite simple to use—it was a perfect solution for our needs,” said Mitch White, Technical Director, Studio Tenn. “The image was fantastic despite the long throw using the standard lens.”

The Hitachi CP-WX8265 was instrumental in adding “strikingly modern twists” to TPAC’s rendition of the classic Christmas play which featured an 18-member cast, a full orchestra and fog effects. Traditionally performed in the more intimate Franklin Theater, this was the first year that TPAC used the Polk Theater for A Christmas Carol.

The Studio Tenn Theatre company was established in 2009 in order to combine talent from Nashville and Broadway, bringing classic works of drama and musical theatre to life in Middle Tennessee.

“Peter Vaque of SpringTree Media Group in Franklin, TN suggested Hitachi when we told him what we wanted to do,” said Jake Speck, Managing Director, Studio Tenn. “Video elements are an integral part of what we put on stage and that simply can’t be compromised. Needless to say, we were thrilled with the Hitachi projector’s performance.”

The Hitachi CP-WX8265 3LCD projector features 6,500 ANSI lumens brightness, motorized lens shift, Perfect Fit (which allows easy shaping of the projection to fit to the projecting area) and setup memory, which allows for quickly changing lens and focus settings for specific scenes.

Moody Gardens Chooses D3D Cinema and Christie for 4K 3D Giant Screen 6P Laser Projection System

Christie® and D3D Cinema are pleased to announce that the world’s first museum-based 4K 3D giant screen 6P laser projection system will be installed and premiering at Moody Gardens MG3D Cinema in Q4 2014. The system design and configuration will further distinguish the Moody Gardens MG3D Theater as one of the world’s most premier cinema venues.

“This is the game-changing milestone that the museum giant screen industry has longed to achieve for many years,” said Don Kempf, president and founder of D3D Cinema. “Moody Gardens’ audiences will be the first in the world to have a 6P giant screen laser experience, unarguably the future of cinema presentation. The DCI and DIGSS-compliant Christie laser solution, coupled with 6P glasses technology, will be unparalleled in terms of image quality. D3D has always been committed to designing first-rate giant screen solutions that are built on a more economically viable business model. It’s a great thrill to be able to achieve this goal AND be first to market with such a premium solution.”

John Zendt, CEO of Moody Gardens agrees. “D3D Cinema has proven time and again that they can deliver the goods first, better and more efficiently. We thoroughly researched all known laser options and the D3D/Christie solution beats the competition across the board – including, significantly, the price. We’ll own this laser system outright, which is important to us, saving significant operating dollars over the life of the laser modules. We’re really proud to have our theater represented as a pioneer in digital cinema and invite all museum executives to visit for a demonstration.”

Christie 4K 6PLaser Digital Projection System

The upgrade will replace Moody Gardens’ existing 4K xenon system with a state-of-the-art pair of Christie 4K laser projection heads, a 6P modular laser light farm with fiber optic delivery, Christie 4K 3D high-bitrate server, new giant screen 6P laser glasses, and a new premium white screen. “Our 6P laser design is a huge step forward for the industry,” said Don Shaw, senior director, Entertainment Solutions, Christie. “This particular system is designed to achieve up to 14-foot lamberts onscreen in 3D, far exceeding any ‘ultra-bright’ industry standards. Our non-flashing 6P architecture is by far the most light-efficient 3D technology on the market, providing incredible brightness, enhanced color gamut and a remarkable contrast ratio. On a speckle-free premium white screen, Moody Gardens will deliver a peerless cinematic presentation to their audience. It’s a real feather in our cap to have Moody Gardens as a flagship theater.”

This latest collaboration between D3D and Moody Gardens builds on a longstanding partnership. In January 2011, D3D and Moody co-hosted the first annual Digital Cinema Symposium, showcasing 4K projection technology on a giant screen for the first time, including the first 4K vs. 70mm split screen shootout. The following year, at the 2012 Digital Cinema Symposium, D3D showcased the first 4K 3D demonstration, 11.1 3D audio, high frame rate 3D as well as a prototype laser on a giant screen, all industry firsts. The 2012 event was a milestone, marking the first time that industry professionals overwhelmingly acknowledged a digital presentation exceeded the quality of a 70mm film in a side-by-side comparison. A case study was recently published by D3D & Moody Gardens illustrating the financial benefits and qualitative success of digital presentation and rebranding.

Moody Gardens’ marks the first giant screen laser deal of many for D3D and Christie. “Lasers raise the bar,” adds Kempf. “After Moody Gardens, our first laser dome system is around the corner, which will save our dome clients hundreds of thousands in operating costs per year. The giant screen industry is about to look quite a bit brighter!”

Christie Mirage 4K Projector Screens Trumbull’s ‘UFOTOG’ in 3D 4K at 120 FPS

Filmmaker and Visual Effects legend Douglas Trumbull is partnering with Christie® on May 11 to premiere UFOTOG, a dramatic 10-minute experimental sci-fi story about a lone man attempting to photograph UFOs. Directed by Trumbull and created in 4K 3D at 120 frames per second (fps), the short film will be screened on a Christie® Mirage 4K35, the world’s first and only 4K DLP® resolution projector running at a true 120Hz, at the Seattle Cinerama Theater’s 2nd Annual Sci-Fi Film Festival.

“By using the latest technological advances in a smaller, less expensive space I can create and shoot live action content in a virtual environment at an actual 120Hz at full 4K resolution,” said Douglas Trumbull. “This ensures that the film will have the intended impact of an immersive, action 3D experience that can only be achieved on a Christie Mirage 4K at a true 4K 120Hz playback rate for a special venue or advanced immersive theatrical environment.”

Filmmaker Douglas Trumbull screening UFOTOG

With UFOTOG, Trumbull will demonstrate his ground-breaking MAGI process, which explores a new cinematic language that invites the audience to experience a powerful sense of immersion and impact that is not possible using conventional 24 fps or 3D standards.

“With Trumbull’s vision and process, he is taking the audience experience to an entirely new immersive story-telling level, beyond anything ever seen in the cinema world,” said Larry Paul, senior director, technology and visualization solutions, at Christie. “In fact, the use of the Christie Mirage 4K35 DLP® projector is the first screening of its kind showing in true 120Hz.”

The Christie Mirage 4K series (4K24 and 4K35)
The Mirage product line offers significant benefits to the global business and visualization markets, including theme parks, special events and custom theaters that rely on both 3D and single or multiple channel immersive displays, but it can also be used in filmmaking and post production for reviewing 4K shots from 24 to 120 fps at a full 4K resolution. The Christie Mirage 4K projectors provide outstanding flexibility in brightness from 10,000 to 35,000 lumens, a variety of input options including DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI and built-in Christie Twist™ for curved screens and blended array visualization applications.

Christie Powers World Premiere of ‘X-Men’ at the Jacob Javits Convention Center

Christie® has been selected by preferred partner Digital Media Systems (DMS) to provide the 3D digital cinema projection technology for the world premiere of 20th Century Fox’s film X-Men: Days of Future Past on Saturday, May 10. DMS will transform the River Pavilion at the Jacob Javits Convention Center into a state-of-the-art, fully equipped theater to screen the highly anticipated X-Men sequel, with two Christie Solaria® Series digital cinema projectors lighting up a 26-foot by 62-foot screen with bright, vivid images and 4K resolution.

Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Days of Future Past is the seventh motion picture in the X-Men series and boasts an impressive cast, including Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, and Matthew Vaughn. The world premiere will be a star-studded extravaganza with the red carpet and audience featuring some of the film’s stars, other A-list celebrities, and nearly 1,500 additional viewers.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

20th Century Fox chose Digital Media Systems, its primary East Coast projection and sound team, to provide the technical support, integration, and installation for the film’s debut. A preferred Christie partner, Digital Media System’s long-standing relationship with Christie gave it complete confidence in installing Christie Solaria Series projectors to bring X-Men to life on the big screen with stunning 3D visuals.

“The River Pavilion presents a challenging layout for the event, as all of the equipment, including seats, projection, drapes, and sound systems, needed to be brought in to create as close to a theater auditorium experience as possible. In selecting the projection system, we knew we could count on Christie’s powerful technology to come through for us,” said Gregg Paliotta, president and owner of Digital Media Systems. “With the projection booth over 140 feet away from the screen, Christie Solaria projectors will light up the screen flawlessly with sharp, vivid 3D images to capture every action-packed minute.”

“We are pleased that Digital Media Systems trusted Christie to fully immerse the audience in the 3D world of the X-men,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global & corporate marketing, Christie. “Movie premieres are a great opportunity for Christie to showcase its superior digital cinema technology, and we are confident that our projectors will provide the reliability and flawless visual quality that is needed at such a high profile event.”

In order to provide the high brightness, high resolution, and rich saturated colors needed for the premiere, Digital Media Systems will converge the light from two 4K Christie Solaria Series CP4230 projectors to produce seamless 3D images on the giant screen. This superior 4K projection solution features the Christie 4K+4 advantage, which includes maximum performance for 3D and Christie Pixel Track™ technology for optimum image quality.

Christie MicroTiles and Christie Spyder X20 Promote Michigan State University’s Basketball Program

The Michigan State University Spartans are using Christie® MicroTiles® and a Christie Spyder X20 to promote its powerful men’s basketball program to potential recruits as well as current players and fans. Integrated Design Solutions (IDS) and BlueWater Technologies created the magnificent 30-foot wide by 5-foot tall Christie MicroTiles visual display wall in a corridor of the Berkowitz Athletic Complex, home of Spartans basketball.

With athletic recruiting a highly competitive endeavor, the Spartans wanted something extra to bring the best prospects to their program. The plan was to install a video wall – but not just any video wall – into the long, narrow corridor 20 feet above the basketball court leading into the athletic complex. LCD flat panels were the first choice but the school was concerned about the quality of the images that would show on the display – especially when viewed close up.

“There are several trophies at the end of the corridor, including two men’s NCAA championship trophies, but the college wanted to be able customize the experience for visitors. Coach Izzo and his staff are well known and respected and the school wanted a digital display system to highlight that and the successful history of the program. They wanted to show off what Michigan State does and can do for potential recruits,” said Dean Harris CTS, designer technology services, Integrated Design Solutions.

Christie MicroTiles at Michigan State

The school was also concerned about the larger bezels of flat panels interfering with the cohesiveness of the display they wanted. Familiar with Christie MicroTiles, Harris had some MicroTiles’ samples brought in.

“We took the MicroTiles demo out to the coaches, the athletic director and others at MSU,” explained Harris. “They said, ‘if we are going to do this, we have to have the right product so the content will be crystal-clear up close.’ The visuals on the MicroTiles are very sharp even when you stand just a few inches away from them. Everyone’s reaction was ‘Wow!’ We blew them away. It was the tiny seams, the clarity of the images, the fact that they are serviceable from the front – the MicroTiles just looked stunning and did exactly what they wanted – they were the right choice.”

Located two feet off the floor and fitted into the wall, the Christie MicroTiles video wall comprises 110 tiles in a 22-unit wide by 5-units tall array and – using a Christie-designed pedestal – seamlessly blends into the architecture.

“The MicroTiles wall is located in a dark and narrow entry corridor that leads to a brightly lit rotunda. One of our architects explained that ‘this corridor was designed to replicate the feeling of a student athlete walking through the player’s tunnel into an arena. The vivid content on the MicroTiles wall draws your attention as you walk down the corridor that ends at a large trophy display in the rotunda.’ It is rather impressive,” said Harris.

“There is quite a lot of talk around campus about having to go see the new video wall at the Berkowitz complex. We’re also hearing that other MSU departments would like to have one, too.”

Christie Spyder X20 Manages and Controls Content

To complete the project, the school needed a powerful video processor to do full justice to the content – which is where the Christie Spyder X20 came in. The school’s video production department produces a variety of branded content with one highlight being a line of past coaches that includes their history at the touch of a button while game days include satellite feeds and other MSU-branded content.

“Bob Christopher (central regional manager, Christie) recommended the Spyder X20 and we, in-turn, recommended it to the school; it became part of the whole design project. It was the best fit for the MicroTiles wall,” Harris concluded. “Working with Bob, and Christie as a whole, has been great. I would do it again.”

Christie MicroTiles bright, color-rich and flawless images are the perfect digital technology for creating impressive displays in university and college lobbies, auditoriums and athletic facilities. Several higher education institutions – including the James B. Hunt Jr. Library at the North Carolina State University and Texas Tech University – are benefiting from Christie MicroTiles video walls.
