One of the highlights of the Christie exhibit at BIRTV 2016, now underway in Beijing, China is the Christie CP2208-LP laser phosphor cinema projector. Delivering up to 11,000 native lumens of brightness for screens up to 35 feet, the 3D-capable Christie CP2208-LP is virtually maintenance free with no lamps to change, offers a lower total cost of operation, and provides a lower carbon footprint for theater owners. It is available as a complete system with the optional Christie IMB-S2 integrated media block and also works with other, popular Series-2 IMBs. It delivers superior content flexibility with its ability to display DCI content, alternative content, 3D content and content developed at high frame rates.
“Christie is a leader in projection technologies, renowned for delivering bright and colorful visuals to the cinema space,” said Xingsheng Jiang, general manager, Red Carp Digital Cinema Group. “As an exhibitor, I’m very impressed by the performance and capabilities of the Christie CP2208-LP laser phosphor cinema projector. Not only does it deliver remarkable visuals, its attractive cost of ownership and elimination of the need for lamp maintenance makes it a very compelling product that deserves serious consideration for exhibitors with smaller auditoriums,”
Christie’s partner Beijing Donview Technology Development Co., Ltd has played an important role in generating strong interest in the CP2208-LP by staging a number of roadshows across China since July. So far, the events had been held in the cities of Chongqing, Guangzhou, Fuzhou, Wuhan, Hefei and Changchun to enthusiastic turnouts by cinema owners and industry players. Attendees were not only provided with comprehensive information on the benefits of RGB laser and laser phosphor illumination, they also witnessed live demonstrations of the CP2208-LP featuring 2D and 3D content.
Hongyi Liang, general manager, digital cinema division, Donview said, “Christie is well-known for its visual and audio solutions in the global cinema industry. The latest CP2208-LP is no exception – it is the clear choice for independent exhibitors, local art houses with limited budgets and remote sites where accessibility can be difficult for lamp maintenance. We are confident that exhibitors will readily embrace this high-value and DCI-compliant digital cinema projector.”
“The Christie CP2208-LP marks the next level of digital projection, and is fully designed, engineered and manufactured by Christie,” said Jason Pei, deputy general manager, Christie China. “Reliable and easy-to-operate, it is capable of lighting screens up to 35 feet wide in DCI color, supports various alternative content sources through dual HDMI-over-DVI ports, and delivers images on the screen that are bright and engaging. The CP2208-LP can display a full range of content, from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to locally produced content from all over the world.”
