Australian exhibitor Hoyts has purchased and undisclosed number of Christies’ newly introduced CP4325-RGB pure laser cinema projector. The projectors will be installed at Hoyts’ upcoming flagship all RGB laser cinema complex located in Docklands, Melbourne, as well as in Auckland-based post-production house Department of Post.
“With Christie’s new CP4325-RGB pure laser projectors, we endeavor to deliver the best visual experience possible in every auditorium at our new cinema in Docklands and at post-production facilities such as Department of Post,” said Adam Wrightson, general manager, Hoyts Cinema Technology Group. “Christie RGB pure laser projectors are the future of cinema projection and the gold standard for that technology. We’re very confident that the CP4325-RGB will deliver rich and vibrant visuals in mainstream auditoriums, as well as for filmmakers and post-production facilities.”
Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie Australia, added, “We are delighted that Hoyts has purchased our next generation CP4325-RGB pure laser projectors following its official introduction at CineAsia 2017. This exemplifies the strong trust and confidence that Hoyts and Hoyts CTG have in our new product to deliver unrivalled cinematic performance. At the same time, it reinforces our vision that RGB pure laser will become the standard for mainstream cinema in the very near future.”
Hoyts’ Docklands site will also install the Christie CP42LH fibre-coupled RGB pure laser projection systems in two XtremeScreen premium format auditoriums equipped with screens of over 20 metres wide. Each CP42LH unit will be upgraded to 60,000 lumens to deliver the brightest and most engaging visuals.
“This will be our second and third CP42LH systems installed at Hoyts cinemas in Melbourne delivering the ultimate cinematic experience available to our guests,” said Wrightson. “In addition to the Christie RGB pure laser projection systems powering the visuals, every auditorium at Docklands will also have Dolby Atmos sound.”
