Christie Introduces CP2308-C and New Laser Projection Technology at CineAsia 2016
Christie® continues its technological leadership with the introduction of the new CP2308-C high value Xenon projector, based on a powerful new electronics platform. Attendees at CineAsia 2016 were the first in the world to encounter the new system, and also get a ‘sneak peak’ at a new Christie RGB laser projector. Created specifically for the burgeoning Chinese market, Christie is proud to launch the CP2308-C, a highvalue digital cinema projector, capable of projecting 9,000 DCI lumens (and 10,000 for alternative content), the CP2308-C comes with an integrated DCI playback engine, built-in automation features, and a new, more user-friendly UX design interface. Perfect for cinemas with smaller screens, this unit will support alternative content sources through dual HDMI ports (along with the integrated DCI playback engine, supporting DCI cinema and streaming content). Unique to Christie’s digital cinema projection lineup, the CP2308-C is the first available product to boast Christie’s latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform. The unit will be also compatible with Series 2 IMBs, with a firmware update, in mid-year. Following a successful launch of CP2308- C in China, Christie will quickly begin to introduce additional Series 3 projectormodels in the upcoming year. Alongside the CP2308-C will be a technology preview of Christie’s digital-cinema laser projection family, boasting much higher efficiency than RGB lasers used in current cinemas. Also based on Christie’s latest Series 3 digital cinema electronics platform, this RGB laser projector has no need for sub-ambient cooling (i.e., no ‘chillers’ required) in a compact form factor, all-in-one design. Providing superior color, higher contrast, a futureproof design and low maintenance, this is the forerunner of a laser-projection solution intended for mainstream cinema applications; an ideal replacement product for aging Series 1 and early Series 2 projectors.
