Digital Cinema

Christie is the exclusive digital projection partner for the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) for the seventh consecutive year.

The Christie Solaria CP4230 DLP® 4K digital cinema projector once again screens the opening and closing films at the prestigious event, which takes place June 13-21. Known as China’s only non-specialized competitive international film festival accredited by the Paris-based Fédération Internationale des Associations de Producteurs de Films (FIAPF), the festival kicked off with the screening of veteran Hong Kong director Derek Yee’s new film, I Am Somebody, while China-Russian co-production Ballet in the Flames of War will close the event.

Christie also completed the installation of Asia’s first 6-Primary (6P) laser projectionsystem in Hall 1 of the Shanghai Film Art Center for movie screenings during the film festival. The Christie Freedom® laser illumination system provides brightness of up to 60,000 lumens per projector head. 

Christie is also participating in the China (Shanghai) International Cinema Facilities and Technology Exhibition, which takes place at the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing from June 17-19. During this event, visitors can check out the comprehensive range of Christie cinema projection and audio solutions, including a live demonstration of the Christie CP2215 DLP digital cinema projector and the Christie Vive Audio™ cinema audio solution, which utilizes ribbon driver speakers and Class D amplifiers.
