In its latest display of technological leadership in the cinema market, Christie® will preview at CinemaCon (Milano room) the CP4325-RGB – an ‘all in one’ RGB laser projector in the Christie Freedom Series – boasting an innovative design that delivers significantly higher efficiency than lasers utilized in current cinemas.

Based on the Christie CineLifeTM Series 3 electronics platform – which also underpins the newly-announced Christie CP2308 lamp-based projector – the CP4325-RGB will be an easy-to-operate RGB laser projector, as well as being simple to install. With a design that eliminates the current need for sub-ambient cooling, this compact unit will also provide a vast palette of colors, higher contrast ratios and low maintenance costs.

Featuring a streamlined UX-inspired interface, Christie CineLife simplifies the playback, scheduling and management of cinema content. Field tested on more than

100 screens since 2014 with the next-generation Christie IMB, the CineLife Series 3 electronics also provides backwards compatibility with other Series 2 IMB manufacturers.

“Projection forms an important component of the complete cinema experience that Christie delivers to the global exhibitor community, as well as being a critical part of the workflow that award-winning filmmakers require to deliver immersive, awe-inspiring movies,” said Jennifer Smith, executive vice president, Global Market Solutions & Engineering, Christie. “As such, Christie continues to make great strides in RGB laser projection and is pleased to show its exhibitor and studio partners a sneak preview of what will become the gold standard for laser-illuminated projection in the near future.”

With the addition at the end of 2017 of the Christie CP4325-RGB solution, Christie Freedom Series projectors will be available in two unique platforms, as DCI-compliant solutions for mainstream cinemas, giant screens and Premium Large Format (PLF) theatres looking to offer guests a riveting and captivating cinematic experience.
