“Christie is continuously investing in new product innovations to offer our customers the widest possible choice for their audiences,” comments Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions, Christie. “We understand how important it is for exhibitors to safeguard their long-term technology investment, particularly as more 4K content comes on the market. Our experience with the 1.2” DLP Cinema chip has given us an advantage over the competition on developing premium 2K and 4K technology to keep pace with the digital cinema rollout.”
Christie is scheduled to launch the Christie 4K Solaria Series this fall with shipments beginning in early 2011. Pricing for Christie 4K digital cinema projectors is anticipated to be 35% above 2K projector pricing. Development of Christie 4K solutions for markets beyond cinema will be based on market demand.
