Disney and Christie sign digital technology pact

Oct 4, 2013

The Walt Disney Studios entered into an agreement with Christie to provide the latest digital-cinema technologies and a variety of professional services for The Walt Disney Studios’ production, post-production, screening rooms and premieres.

In addition, Christie’s Managed Services will provide Disney’s engineering team with round-the-clock support for Disney’s digital-cinema facilities, supported by Christie’s Network Operations Center (NOC) and Christie’s on-site preventative maintenance services.

The two companies will share projection technology ideas and innovations. Disney will have early access to emerging Christie technologies and provide input into product development, including laser projection, 4K projection, and Christie’s Integrated Media Block.

“Disney continues to push the limits of technology and innovation, and we at Christie are honored that we have this long-term opportunity to bring our considerable technology and service resources to bear to support Disney’s movie business,” said Jack Kline, president and COO of Christie Digital Systems USA Inc. 

“Our agreement with Christie assures us of leading-edge projection technology and services for our motion pictures and our studio lot,” said Jeff Miller, president, studio operations, at The Walt Disney Studios. “We’re also looking forward to working with Christie to refine and improve projection technologies.”

A combination of 2K and 4K Christie Solaria® Series DLP Cinema® projectors will be delivered to Disney in 2013, beginning with Disney’s worldwide headquarters in Burbank, Calif.
