Guinness World Records certified the event. Using six Christie Solaria Series CP2230 DLP Cinema projectors configured in two clusters of three with each projector's output rated at 32 000 lumens an audience of 8 500 were thrilled to witness the epic finale between good and evil in full stereoscopic 3D. We're really proud to have made this world record possible through our Christie Solaria range of digital cinema projectors says Pascal Gervais Christie's regional director. To be chosen by our partner the big-format 3D projection specialist 2Avi and by Warner Bros just confirms Christie's technological lead and its position as world front-runner in digital cinema.
