Major Cineplex, the largest cinema operator in Thailand, has chosen Christie’s laser projection system for its flagship auditorium, Paragon Cineplex. Located on the fifth floor of the Siam Paragon shopping mall in the heart of the city, Paragon Cineplex comprises 16 screens and 5,000 seats, and is well known as Thailand's largest cineplex. With this installation, Major Cineplex will be the first exhibitor in Thailand to deploy Christie’s pinnacle RGB laser projection system.
The projection system will be fitted in Siam Pavalai, Thailand’s single, grandest theatre equipped with a 23-meter screen and 1,096-seat capacity.
The system includes a Christie CP42LH 3DLP 4K RGB laser projector featuring enhanced wavelength diversification, connected via fiber optic to a laser rack housing eight laser modules that generate white light from multiple combinations of RGB primary color wavelengths to offer a spectacular 3D viewing experience on silver screens. The single system is capable of generating 40,000 lumens – much brighter than what current, lamp-based digital projectors can deliver.
“We are proud to be the first exhibitor in Thailand to offer this brand new cinema technology for our guests to enjoy a movie experience like no other,” said Vicha Poolvaraluk, chairman of Major Cineplex group. “Over the years, we pride ourselves in creating the best movie-going experience to our patrons. By introducing Christie’s cutting-edge RGB laser projector to our flagship multiplex, we are taking the immersive cinema experience to the next level and I’m sure our customers will appreciate what’s in store for them.”
Han Kim, general manager, Christie Singapore said, “We’re very pleased that Major Cineplex, the largest cinema chain in Thailand, has placed its trust in our award-winning RGB laser projection system, which has effectively demonstrated how 3D light levels, color fidelity, image uniformity, viewing comfort, and a sense of immersion can be greatly improved. The cinematic presentation delivered by our CP42LH with EWD in Paragon Cineplex will not only captivate movie-goers, but also provides confidence to cinema exhibitors in terms of performance and reliability.”
Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific said, “We’re delighted that Major Cineplex has selected our RGB laser projection system for its flagship multiplex in Bangkok to deliver the best laser projection and viewing experience. Since we rolled out our RGB laser projection system two years ago, an increasing number of exhibitors around the world have chosen our RGB laser architecture that produces incredible brightness, a reinforced color spectrum and an extraordinary contrast ratio that significantly improves the efficiency of 3D projection systems.”
