Christie has announced that its long-term partner Sonic Equipment Company recently reached a milestone with the installation of its 1,000th Christie Solaria Series DLP Cinema projector.
“Our valued partnership with Sonic has proven to be integral to our objective of providing exhibitors with the breakthrough technology needed to create the bright, vivid images that movie-goers have come to expect,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions at Christie. “Sonic’s success is our success and helps strengthen our leadership in the exhibition industry. Our partnership continues to grow as we blaze new digital trails with technologies that include High Frame Rate and the Christie Duo big screen premium products. We also look forward to working with Sonic to debut such coming attractions as the ground-breaking Christie 6-Primary laser projector.”
Christie’s wide range of affordable and innovative digital cinema projectors mapped perfectly with Sonic’s mission to help smaller theatre circuits and individual screen owners make the film-to-digital conversion, providing the same care in designing, installing and servicing theatre venues as the nation’s largest chains were enjoying. The result is that Sonic has an exceptional industry reputation as the one-stop shopping cinema sales provider for hundreds of locations across America.
“The close relationship and positive experiences we have had working with Christie is a testament to Christie’s exceptional customer-centric approach to business, with products and service that are second to none,” said Eric Olson, director of operations for Sonic. “Most importantly, our partnership has been tremendously beneficial to our customers, many of whom have facilities that presented installation challenges due to the older nature of the buildings. Together with Christie we helped them achieve best-in-class cinema for the ultimate benefit of their audiences.”
