Christie RGB Laser Projection System Widely Adopted By Leading Cinema Exhibitors in China
Christie’s pinnacle projection technology trusted by major exhibitors across the country for its performance and reliability; more RGB laser installations in the pipeline
Christie®, a leader in
creating and sharing the world’s best visual and audio experiences, is pleased to announce that its
revolutionary RGB laser projection system continues to be the preferred choice
for a premium 3D cinema experience by leading cinema exhibitors across China.
Since its rollout in June 2014 with the world’s first commercial
RGB laser projection system installed at the Shanghai Film Art Center,
Christie’s pinnacle projection technology has seen widespread adoption due to
its 4K resolution, high frame rate capabilities, a color gamut that exceeds the
DCI P3 color and replicates the Rec. 2020 space, scalable light source up to
60,000 lumens, long operational and stable life (30,000 hours to 80% brightness),
and built-in redundancies for improved reliability.
Wanda Cinema Line, Suning Cinema, and
Henan Oscar International Cinema are among the many cinema exhibitors that have
continued to deploy the Christie CP42LH 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projection system in
their theaters using both 6-Primary (6P) and Enhanced Wavelength
Diversification (EWD) configurations.
Christie 6P laser systems
employ two sets of RGB laser lights – one for the left eye, and one with
slightly different wavelengths for the right eye. Reusable glasses then filter
out the different wavelengths and direct the light to the eye it was intended
for. As a result, 3D content feels natural, is brighter and achieves
DCI-compliancy for both eyes.
Christie RGB laser with EWD, on the
other hand, provides exhibitors with a legitimate option to counteract speckle while
allowing the continued use of existing silver screens and passive 3D systems.
Not only does this reduce costs and time associated with a projection system
retrofit, it also allows exhibitors to use low-cost 3D polarization glasses,
which translates to significant cost savings.
In recent months, some of the theaters
across China that have installed Christie RGB laser include:
Dadu LCC Theater – Christie 6P laser projection system
has been installed in Hall 5 auditorium, which has a 14.5-meter screen and a
seating capacity of 240.
Panjin Wanda Plaza – Christie RGB laser projection system
with EWD has been fitted in Hall 10, which is equipped with a 22-meter screen
and 357 seats.

Oscar International Cinema – Christie RGB laser projection system

“We are heartened that our ground-breaking RGB laser projection
system continues to be the clear choice of Chinese exhibitors across the
country. Not only can the system achieve exceptional brightness in 3D to provide
audiences with a truly unforgettable cinema experience, it is also highly
robust and reliable,” said Jason Pei, Deputy General Manager, Christie China.
“The increasing number of Christie RGB laser installs in China demonstrates the
strong confidence that our customers have in our leading projection technology,
and I’m pleased to note that more RGB laser installations
are scheduled in various parts of China in the coming months.”
