Giant Screen Conference to feature laser projection demo

Aug 15, 2014

A special technical session of the Giant Screen Cinema Association (GSCA) conference scheduled for Sept. 23 at the Cineplex Cinemas Queensway in Toronto will feature the first large-scale projection demo using a 90,000-lumens Christie 6P laser projection system. Installed by Electrosonic, the demo will be shown on a Harkness screen.
 
Press and GSCA delegates from 20 countries will watch clips from educational documentary films as well as Hollywood blockbusters projected by the Christie system—which delivers more than three times the light output of current lamp-based digital projectors. The demo will also utilize an immersive array of Christie Vive Audio speakers.
 
"GSCA prides itself on showcasing the best films in their best possible light,” says Tammy Seldon, GSCA executive director. “We are very pleased to partner with Christie, Harkness Screens and Electrosonic to show our members the latest in projection technology.”
 
Don Shaw, Christie’s senior director of product management, stated, “As exhibitors realize the benefits of laser projection and advanced immersive audio systems, they will also realize the benefits of engaging leading integrators such as Electrosonic to take advantage of the oversight, detailed design assistance—for both hardware and software components—and system-level testing to perfection that only skilled integrators can deliver. We also can’t overlook the impact of matching the technology with the ideal screen surface, which has a tremendous impact on both the visual and audio experience in a cinema. Currently, we recommend Harkness Screens for all of our laser projection installations.”
 
Film clips scheduled to be seen at the technical session include Antarctica’s Penguin Emperors, Dark Universe, The Life of Trees, NAYA Legend of the Golden Dolphin, Remnants, Star Spangled Banner: An Anthem of Liberty and The Turn of This Century.
