Projector manufacturer Christie is celebrating after its technology won two top awards at an industry event.
The company was named the winner of a pair of highly prestigious awards for technical innovation at this year's Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) Show, which took place in Amsterdam last week.
Christie was voted the winner of the AV Innovation of the Year prize for the firm's 6P laser projection innovation, which aims to redefine the 3D cinema experience.
Don Shaw, senior director of product management for Christie, stated that using a dual headed projection system in order to provide the most comfortable 3D viewing experience and deliver the brightest picture is a decision that has been justified by the award.
He added: "It is also a testament to our engineering capability and our knowledge of what the market truly needs. As a result, Christie’s 6P laser projection is setting the standard for cinemas and other 3D projection applications by providing the ultimate viewing experience."
Christie also won the major global award for Most InAVative Projector, with the company's GS Series of laser phosphor projectors selected for the honour.
Curtis Lingard, product manager at Christie, explained that the award demonstrates the firm's ongoing commitment to developing high quality products.
He said: "With our GS Series, I think we are seeing the start of a new technology in the market – and I hope we will see a lot more – with Christie leading the way."
Christie's GS series of projectors includes technology that means it avoids the downtime, cost of lamp and filter replacements, and maintenance associated with lamp-based projectors.
