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.

Adaptive Video Walls and Displays Creates Flyable Video Wall for the Cube Lounge at the Rivers Chicago Casino

Flexible Video Walls Can Be Retracted According to Venue’s Specific Need

CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012 — Adaptive Video Walls and Displays, a division of Adaptive Technologies Group and the premier provider of innovative wall-mountable, floor-standing, interlocking and flyable video wall frames for multiple LCD, LED and plasma monitors, teamed up with SVT, a company that provides design, installation, management and service of turnkey technology solutions in a variety of venues, to create three interlocking video walls for the Cube Lounge at the Rivers Chicago Casino. Cube Lounge, a multimedia sports lounge by day and state-of-the-art nightclub/live-performance space by night, can raise and lower the Adaptive video frames from the ceiling, instantly transforming the space as needed.

When the lounge is being utilized as a sports venue, a two-sided 2X1 video wall, consisting of four 55-inch NEC flat-screen LCD displays, is positioned over the bar area. In the center of the lounge is a two-sided 6X1 video wall that also has 55-inch NEC LCD displays. During live performances, the front stage area houses a complete 4×4 video wall, which consists of sixteen 46-inch NEC ultra-thin bezel LCD displays. This video wall can be configured to exhibit one large image across all the displays or up to sixteen different images. When the venue is in nightclub mode, the entire video wall can then be lifted out of sight.

Adaptive’s precision-machined connecting bars and compression locks link multiple LCD frames together, horizontally and vertically, in both landscape and portrait orientations. Precisely dimensioned mounting frames and LCD monitors are assembled in tiers, and then the completed and locked assembly is flown utilizing a load-rated rigging beam and suspension components. Rigging beams secure to the top and bottom of the video wall for tilting displays, and cam-style compression locks provide seamless alignment between LCDs. Powder-coated alloy steel-welded frames and precision-machined connecting bars provide rugged overhead lifting for nearly any application.

“We are thrilled that we were able to solve the Cube Lounge’s multi-purpose needs through the use of our flying interlocking video walls,” says Paul Allen, president, Adaptive Technologies Group. “Our video walls help to easily transform this venue from a sports bar to a night club setting, with just a click of a button.”

In addition to the frames designed for use in this project, Adaptive Video Walls and Displays provides frames for various other LCD and plasma models that are employed in many permanent and rental and staging applications around the world, including narrow bezel models produced by NEC, Sharp, Orion, Samsung and ViewSonic.

WATCHOUT brings Renault Megane III to life

Omagica supplies Dataton WATCHOUT for car launches

Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-image display and presentation software was provided by Dataton Premium Partner, Omagica to Bolivia-based projection specialists Vinilo Lab for use in Bogota and Medellin city launches of the new Renault Mégane III family car.

Here an extra projection layer was added to make the motion effect even more realistic and fast-paced. As the car was suspended and lowered into the stage area during the show, the result was perfectly synchronised.”

The event was attended by a packed audience of brand management, television and media as well as regional Renault dealers.

Adela Kriland, owner of Omagica adds, “Omagica are a trusted partner of Dataton and have worked with them for many years on projects with partners such as Vinilo Lab who are roadtesting the new features WATCHOUT on projects as exciting as the Renault Megane launch. Our technical support staff were on hand to offer valuable local advice during the setup of this project.”

“Dataton is no stranger to vehicle launches,” says Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director at Dataton. “Having a system that is reliable, easy to use and as robust as WATCHOUT is testament to its succcess. We look forward to seeing more installations as impressive as the Renault Megane launch using new and enhanced features of WATCHOUT in the future.”

AMSTERDAM, SEPTEMBER 8, 2012Sound Devices, experts in portable audio and video products for field production, showcases its new PIX 260 production audio/video recorder at IBC 2012 (Stand 8.D74). Based on Sound Devices’ field-proven PIX 220 and PIX 240 recorders, the rack-mounted PIX 260 is a file-based video/audio recorder/player that seamlessly replaces tape-based video decks in production and post-production environments.

“Our PIX line of production video recorders has been very well received by a wide range of production professionals,” says Jon Tatooles, managing director at Sound Devices. “We are excited to showcase our latest edition, the PIX 260, to the European market at IBC 2012.”

Using the Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs, the PIX 260 records and plays files up to 220 Mbps in high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2 video. It also records 32 tracks of 48 kHz audio. Files from the PIX 260 are ready for direct import into Avid and Final Cut editing platforms, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding. Files can also play out of the PIX 260 for real-time applications.

PULA FILM FESTIVAL SETS OUTDOOR CINEMA RECORD WITH HARKNESS STAGELITE STEREO 3D SCREEN

PULA, CROATIA, AUGUST 30, 2012 — The 59th Pula Film Festival, held in the ancient Vespasian’s Amphitheatre (dating back to the 1st Century) set a new standard for outdoor 3D film presentation.

Given its extraordinary technical setup, an attendance in the thousands and results that had never been achieved before, the event will be remembered as an industry first in three categories.

Firstly, the 3D projection setup achieved the longest throw distance (using a Barco DP2K-32B projector) ever recorded at 73.6 metres (242ft) exceeding the recommended throw distance. Furthermore, the setup, which included an 18.70 x 8.45m Stagelite Stereo 3D Screen from Harkness Screens, achieved a wide-viewing angle of 60º allowing the 3D presentation to be viewed at suitable brightness levels throughout the entire seating area.

As a result of this, the film festival was able to set what is believed to be a new Guinness World Record for an outdoor 3D presentation with an official attendance of 5,920 visitors.

“We were delighted to supply the Stagelite Stereo surface for the festival and provide installation support. The setup achieved by LMT (Laboratory of Multimedia Technologies in Zagreb), the festival’s technical resource, was nothing short of remarkable and they deserve much praise,” says Tony Dilley, European Sales Manager at Harkness Screens.

Stagelite Stereo is a front projection surface specifically designed for non-cinema 3D applications. Silver aluminium flake based PVC fixed to a unique base material provides high gain characteristics, very low depolarisation level (extinction ratio) and excellent colour temperature. The surface type also supports conventional 2D pictures and is also cleanable.
