Christie reveals 'breakthrough 3D cinema technology'

Some of the most advanced laser projection architecture in the world will be showcased by Christie in Las Vegas next month.

The projection manufacturer announced the demonstrations of the equipment, alongside Dolby 3D, which will be held at Christie Innovation Theatres during CinemaCon 2014.

The event – which will run from 24 to 27 March 2014 – will see Christie DLP Cinema laser projectors making use of 6-Primary (6P) colour laser modules. Predicted to be in production early next year, the devices will demonstrate how 3D light levels, viewing comfort and image uniformity are all able to be boosted when compared to traditional 3D systems currently used in global cinemas.

When merged with technology such as Dolby 3D, the laser projection architecture is capable of producing even more of a sense of ‘immersion’ for viewers.

Don Shaw, senior director, product management, Christie Entertainment Solutions, said: “Christie’s latest laser projection technology, using 6 specific primary colours rather than filtered or polarised broad-spectrum white light, brings dramatically improved 3D efficiency to projection systems, regardless of the size of screen in premium movie theatres.

“We believe that this is the future of 3D cinema projection, that it is right around the corner, and that it will be a key element in boosting 3D box office revenues around the world."
