Christie' has expanded its series of laser phosphor projectors with the new CP2208-LP, which was announced at CinemaCon.


The new model is a high-value DCI-compliant projection system that is easy to maintain and provides DCI colour while being cheap to maintain and operate.

The new CP2208-LP delivers up to 11,000 lumens of brightness, is 3D capable and is extremely cost efficient, in part due to no lamps needing to be changed. This results in a lifetime of up to 20,000 hours. Due to this, it provides a more eco-friendly footprint for owners. It also has the ability to display a variety of different content, including DCI, 3D and other material developed at high frame rates.

The model can light a screen up to 35 feet wide and supports a number of display sources through its dual HDMI-over-DVI ports. This allows the portable projector display images onto screens that are both bright and vivid. Feature film content can be displayed using the optional Christie integrated media block (IMB-S2) with improved performance, or another popular Series-2 integrated media block (IMB) system using the open IMB slot.

Allan Fernandes, product manager for Christies, said: “The Christie CP2208-LP is a truly cost-effective entry into DCI-compliant digital cinema. It is the perfect solution for the independent exhibitor, local art houses with limited budgets and remote sites where lamp maintenance can be troublesome.

“For the cinema owner facing the challenges of finding an easy and affordable path to digital cinema, the Christie CP2208-LP is the perfect solution. It is the only projector at this price point to package industry-leading Christie laser phosphor technology into a DCI-compliant, reliable and easy to operate projection system."
