Christie today introduced the Christie CP4325-RGB pure laser cinema projector, which delivers a premium movie-going experience to mainstream theatres. Featuring CineLife electronics and RealLaser illumination, this compact, all-in-one DCI-compliant projector excels in image quality and operational lifetime, while providing a low cost of ownership. With the CP4325-RGB, exhibitors can fill their auditorium seats by attracting audiences with incredibly colorful and detailed, true-to-life images.
“With its innovative all-in-one, next generation direct- coupled RGB illumination system, the Christie CP4235-RGB is the most advanced laser projector on the market,” said Allan Fernandes, senior manager, product management, global cinema, at Christie. “Using next generation, pure red-green-blue direct-emitting laser technology, the CP4325-RGB offers the most authentic and immersive cinema experience for the mainstream market. It offers all the advantages of a high- performance laser projector in a compact all-in-one form factor that eliminates the need for sub-ambient external cooling, while providing rich colors, higher contrast ratios, and the lowest total cost of ownership of any projector in its class.”
Adam Wrightson, general manager, Hoyts Cinema Technology Group, said he’s already installed a Christie CP42LH projector and added, “Given Christie’s pedigree and our reputation for innovation, it’s no wonder that Hoyts has already ordered several units of the Christie CP4325-RGB projector, which leverages the many features of the CP42LH but shrinks the footprint with a breakthrough-design that eliminates the need for external chillers.”
“Department of Post is an innovative, agile and collaborative post-house, aiming to provide filmmakers access to the best technology the world has to offer," said James Gardner, CTO, Department of Post. “In keeping with our mission, the Christie CP4325-RGB RealLaser projector is an essential addition to our facility, with exceedingly accurate color rendition, vivid black and white contrast and overall brightness that enables us to promise our clients the highest possible quality projection of their work in a professional environment,” said Gardner.
“The CP4325-RGB is the forerunner of a line of Christie RGB pure laser projection solutions intended for mainstream cinema applications and as such is an ideal replacement product for exhibitors wishing to upgrade existing installations, as well as for new-build cinemas and retrofits,” said Brian Claypool, vice president, product management, global cinema, at Christie.
“With its compact footprint, long operational life, increased performance capabilities and elimination of consumables, the CP4325-RGB is a game-changing proposition for mainstream auditoriums looking for a performance upgrade when investing in their next generation cinema experience, rather than settling for just a technology swap.”
Employing next-generation RGB pure laser devices, Christie’s advanced research and development teams have been able to eliminate the need for any external cooling, drastically reducing system complexity and cost, while ensuring an impressive and reliable operational life of more than 30,000 hours, with only a 20 percent loss in brightness over this time. The CP4325-RGB boasts a contrast ratio of up to 6000:1 and provides better uniformity and a wider color gamut than other cinema projection systems. In addition, the projector’s compact form-factor means that it can be easily integrated into standard cinema booths.
