Christie reported that its CP2208 digital cinema projector has generated record-breaking sales in China since it started shipping in October.

To date, Christie’s partner Beijing Donview Technology Development Co., Ltd (Donview) has purchased over 500 units of this DCI-compliant projector, making it the best-selling cinema projector of its class in China to date. Christie says this is four times the number of cinema projectors of the same class sold by a competitor in the Chinese market between October and December 2015.

Aimed at theatres whose screen sizes are less than 10.6 meters (35 feet) wide, the CP2208 is the latest in the series of Xenon lamp-based Christie Solaria projector systems. The CP2208 is capable of delivering images at 9,000 lumens within the DCI color space and up to 10,000 lumens when presenting alternative content.

“We are absolutely delighted that the CP2208 has achieved overwhelming sales since it was unveiled during the Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Exhibition in August,” said Jason Pei, sales director at Christie China. “This shows that our latest cinema projector has inspired strong confidence due to its impeccable quality, features and performance.”

The Christie CP2208 can be ordered with a variety of lamp sizes and lenses, and allows feature film content to be displayed using the optional Christie integrated media block (IMB-S2) with improved performance or another popular Series-2 integrated media block (IMB) system using the open IMB slot. The Christie CP2208 also offers HFR upgrade capabilities and support for advertising and alternative content.
