Christie Projects Tribute to Barbra Streisand for 40th Anniversary Chaplin Award Gala at Avery Fisher Hall

Preferred Dealer Digital Media Systems Installed Christie Roadster Projection System To Screen Video Montage from Streisand’s Distinguished Film Career
A Christie® digital projector was chosen to honor Barbra Streisand at the 40th Anniversary Chaplin Award Gala at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center on April 22, 2013.

Former President Bill Clinton presented the pop culture icon with the prestigious Chaplin Award for her lifetime of achievements and contributions to the art of film. The Christie projection system screened a tribute montage of Streisand’s illustrious career, which includes her Academy Award®-winning performance in “Funny Girl” and her role as director, co-producer, co-writer, and star of the film “Yentl.”
 
A 40-year tradition, the Chaplin Award Gala is The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s major fundraising event, which helps support the organization’s “ongoing work in education, artist development, and cross-cultural film outreach,” according to the Film Society. Special guests included actors Pierce Brosnan, Blythe Danner, Amy Irving, and Kris Kristofferson, with musical performances by Tony Bennett, Wynton Marsalis, and Liza Minnelli. 
 
“We were thrilled that Christie technology was chosen to deliver the visual experience that honored Barbra Streisand with this deserving award at Lincoln Center,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, Global & Corporate Marketing, Christie. “We recognize that, with a sold-out audience filled with distinguished guests, a visual solution worthy of showcasing Ms. Streisand’s legendary performances was needed. And that we delivered, as our projectors are recognized for delivering the most brilliant, high-definition images in the industry today and with the reliability expected from the Christie brand.” 
 
The Film Society of Lincoln Center chose Digital Media Systems to install a powerful and reliable projection solution for the gala at Avery Fisher Hall, one of Lincoln Center’s largest venues with a capacity of over 2,700 people. Digital Media Systems in turn selected a Christie Roadster HD18K 1080 HD DLP® Projector to light up a 32ft. screen throughout the event, confident that it would deliver an image that was bright and powerful enough to meet the demanding needs of the high-profile evening.
 
According to Gregg Paliotta, president and owner of Digital Media Systems, “We have done other projects for various Lincoln Center venues and events, and we always ensure that any projection and sound solution we use is world premiere standard. Quality and reliability are paramount. Absolutely nothing can go wrong once the curtains go up, which is why we choose Christie to deliver at these prestigious events. The Christie HD18K projector was the perfect solution for the challenging distance, angle, and space limitations of the projection booth.”
 
“This is an incredibly important event for us each year, as it helps support our organization through the celebration of those who have advanced the art and culture of film,” said Lesli Klainberg, managing director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center. “For the 40th Anniversary Chaplin Award Gala, we really wanted the clips from Barbra Streisand’s career to pop with bright, sharp images. We have worked with Gregg Paliotta of Digital Media Systems in the past, and are always impressed with the quality of the Christie projectors and the exceptional services he provides in setting them up for our most important functions.
 
Part of the Christie HD Series, the Christie Roadster HD18K features full 1920 x 1080 resolution, proven 3-chip DLP® technology with Xenon® illumination, high quality optics and 10-bit image processing for the brightest, clearest HD imaging available in the industry today.
