Barcelona (June 13, 2019) – Christie is showcasing its newest addition to the CineLife™ Series – the Christie CP2309-RGB projector featuring RealLaser™ illumination technology at CineEurope 2019 in Barcelona June 17-20. Also debuting is the Christie Vive Audio LA3i loudspeaker and previews of Christie’s CP4450-RGB demonstrating its technology capabilities for the PLF spectrum cinema.
Redesigned with higher performance and a smaller form factor, the Vive Audio LA3i is the cinema industry’s only screen channel speaker with ribbon-drivers and articulated arrays for the richest, most vibrant sound. Christie is also showcasing the LS2C and LA3si surround loudspeakers for a great audio experience.
Delivering over 8500 lumens, and 2000:1 contrast ratio at an attractive price point for smaller theatre owners, the CP2309-RGB, based on the proven CP2315-RGB design, features Christie CineLife™ electronics: Christie’s proprietary all-in-one system for mainstream cinema exhibition. Approaching greater than 95 percent of the Rec. 2020 colour space, the CP2309-RGB gives theatre owners the deepest, richest, most lifelike colours for over 10 years.
“Christie understands that cinemas come in all sizes, from small screens to large PLF-formats. The availability of our new CP2309-RGB expands our patented, all-in-one, direct-coupled RGB illumination system family, which delivers reliability, high contrast and exceptional colour at an unparalleled low cost of ownership,” said Dale Miller, executive vice president, Cinema, Christie. “With the impeccable sound of the Vive Audio LA3i speaker, Christie provides a complete cinema-going experience for customers.”
The CP2309-RGB’s all-in-one compact design means no external chillers taking up space and a clean, simple installation that saves theatre owners money in both the short and long term. Shipping in the summer of 2019, the CP2309-RGB can reuse existing lenses and accessories from the Christie CP2308, CP2208 and Solaria One platforms.
Attendees at Christie’s Suite D will witness the bright and vibrant visuals of Christie cinema projectors and clean sound of Christie Vive Audio™ in a custom-built, 18-seat theatre located on the Christie booth.
Christie is previewing the CP4450-RGB large-format projector equipped with dual-laser optical systems (LOS) and high-speed CineLife+ electronics capable of 4K @ 120Hz HFR playback.
