2008-03-14 13:58:32

At 95 Pounds, Delivers Powerful "One-Two" Punch of Brightness and Lowest Cost of Ownership Christie, a global leader in Digital Cinema, introduces the most compact and lightest DLP Cinema(r) projector in the world, the Christie CP2000-M. The latest addition to the celebrated Christie CP2000 series, it weighs in at a remarkable 95 pounds, yet delivers up to 12,000 ANSI lumens of output power, the most in its class. Ideal for screens 35 feet wide (10 meters), it is opening up a whole new universe of Digital Cinema excitement for smaller theaters, multiplexes, and post production facilities around the world. It can also be used for 3D presentations on its own or as part of the new Christie 3D2P dual projector system. Based on Texas Instruments' new .98" DLP Cinema chip, the Christie CP2000-M incorporates proprietary Christie optics to produce an image of exceptional quality. Purpose built to meet the needs of the exhibitor, it features a rugged, all-in-one design that can be easilyinstalled. Combined with its infinite installation flexibility, it represents the most cost-effective value proposition for exhibitors seeking power, performance and ease of use in a compact form for small to midsize theaters. "As the Digital Cinema revolution accelerates in theaters around the world, exhibitors seek the widest choices and best values in DLP Cinema solutions - but they also want reliability and proven performance," observes Brian Claypool, senior product manager, Entertainment Solutions. "Designed exclusively for theatrical applications, the Christie CP2000-M was born of pioneering Christie engineering that continues to redefine the standards of performance, value, and dependability in the industry." The Christie CP2000-M features a new motorized lensing system and a selection of eight new zoom lenses that guarantees the right lens for virtually any auditorium with absolutely no need for resizing or scaling. It incorporates a "universal" switching power supply that supports a high performance Xenon bubble arc lamp. HDCP decryption on both DVI inputs, standard on the Christie CP2000-M, allows the display of copy-protected alternate content, BlueRay, and even outside HDTV broadcasts. It can be self-cooled or use external air extraction, depending on theater configurations and need, for greater installation options. The Christie CP2000-M is part of the Christie CP2000 series that includes the Christie CP2000-SB, the revolutionary split body design of the Christie CP2000-XB and all-in-one Christie CP2000-ZX. With three power levels to choose from, exhibitors can now enjoy a Digital Cinema solution perfectly tailored to the size of their screens. For the post production community, the new Christie CP2000-M is available in a special configuration designed for the performance needs of post houses and review rooms around the world.
