Christie Solaria Series Stars at Cannes
Robert De Niro and Brad Pitt may well have been amongst the celebrity line-up , but the real stars of the festival were the Christie Solaria Series Digital Cinema projectors, the CP Series 2, which screened digital titles in competition for the Palme dOr throughout the entire Festival, including The Marchщ du Film, the biggest event in the international film industry. The 64th Film Festival most certainly marked a milestone for Christie, for the first time in the Cannes festival programme there were more digital screenings than film screenings.
A leading innovator in film projection since 1929, and a pioneer in digital projection systems since 1979, Christie's commitment to developing leading-edge technology has been demonstrable since the beginning of digital screenings. With over 20,000 active digital cinema installations globally, we continue to assert our leadership position, playing a major role in the inevitable move to digital cinema.
With flawless projections throughout the largest international event in the movie industry, Christie continues to dominate as the brand with the most advanced technology in digital 2D and 3D projection. Squarely in the center of 3D technologies, Christie is also, now more than ever, leading the great success of 3D digital cinema, which continues to spread throughout France.
