, a leader in creating and sharing the world’s best visual and
audio experiences, continues its technological leadership with the introduction
of the new CP2308-C high value Xenon projector, based on a powerful new
electronics platform. Attendees at CineAsia 2016 will be the first in the world
to encounter the new system, and also get a ‘sneak peek’ at a new Christie RGB laser
“We listened to the market and
the result is a new level of value and user-friendliness in the CP2308-C, with
many cost and feature benefits to our customers,” said Dr. Don Shaw, Sr.
Director, Product Management, Christie. “The electronics package underpinning
the model has been thoroughly beta-tested in real cinemas for over two years
and sees its first appearance in a mass market product at this major global
exhibition,” added Shaw.
specifically for the burgeoning Chinese market, Christie is proud to launch the
on display in Christie booth #201. A high-value digital cinema projector,
capable of projecting 9,000 DCI lumens (and 10,000 for alternative content),
the CP2308-C comes with an integrated DCI playback engine, built-in automation
features, and a new, more user-friendly UX design interface. Perfect for
cinemas with smaller screens, this unit will support alternative content
sources through dual HDMI ports (along with the integrated DCI playback engine,
supporting DCI cinema and streaming content).
Unique to Christie’s digital
cinema projection lineup, the CP2308-C is the first available product to boast
Christie’s latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform. The unit will
be also compatible with Series 2 IMBs, with a firmware update, in mid-year.
Following a successful launch of CP2308-C in China, Christie will quickly begin
to introduce additional Series 3 projector models in the upcoming year.
A Glimpse into the
Future of RGB Laser Projection
the CP2308-C in Christie booth #201 will be a technology preview of Christie’s
digital-cinema laser projection family, boasting much higher efficiency than RGB lasers used in
current cinemas. Also based on Christie’s
latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform, this RGB laser projector
has no need for sub-ambient cooling (i.e., no ‘chillers’ required) in a
compact form factor, all-in-one design. Providing superior color, higher
contrast, a future-proof design and low maintenance, this is the forerunner of
a laser-projection solution intended for mainstream cinema applications; an
ideal replacement product for aging Series 1 and early Series 2 projectors.
