Christie IMB completes Dolby Atmos testing

Oct 16, 2013

The Christie IMB, an integrated media block solution that converts and delivers feature-film and alternative content within a secure environment, now supports Dolby Atmos™, the new immersive audio system.



The announcement follows beta tests at several large cinema customers of Christie that confirmed the Christie IMB/Dolby Atmos synergy, including support for all of the latter’s functionality including playback.


“Combining our powerful IMB with Dolby Atmos, and adding our new Christie Vive Audio™ cinema sound system, enables exhibitors to create a movie experience that is second to none,” declared Craig Sholder, Christie’s VP, entertainment solutions.

The Christie IMB firmware update enables the change for all of Christie’s 2K and 4K, DCI-compliant Solaria® Series 2 projectors having a Christie IMB.



Built into Christie projectors or easily inserted into previously purchased units, the Christie IMB utilizes industry-standard, non-proprietary storage solutions, giving exhibitors a smooth transition to High Frame Rate and 3D projection standards. 

All Solaria Series 2 projectors are designed to integrate seamlessly with the Christie IMB and the Christie Previsto™ High Frame Rate technology.
