cineworldCineworld Group is to acquire more than 1,000 of Christie’s RGB pure laser cinema projectors
UK - Cineworld Eastbourne has become Europe’s first all-RGB laser cineplex after opting for Christie RealLaser technology. The UK cinema’s eight auditoriums have all been fitted with Christie’s CP2315-RGB and CP2320-RGB offerings. Christie RGB laser projection systems have also been installed at a brace of other UK Cineworld-owned locations, further demonstrating the exhibitor’s commitment to RGB laser technology.
“We’re delighted to offer our customers a fantastic visual cinematic experience with Christie RealLaser technology, which has become known for its excellent performance and reliability,” says Kiril Enikov, head of technical for Cineworld. “We aim to provide the best place to watch a movie, and by investing in the latest high performance technologies, we feel we are continuing to deliver on this goal.”
The CP2315-RGB and CP2320-RGB give exhibitors the latest innovations in RGB pure laser technology at a cost of ownership comparable to Xenon.
The Cineworld Group has also placed its trust in Christie at The Picturehouse Central in the Piccadilly area of London, where its screen has been upgraded with a RealLaser projection system. In addition, the O2 Greenwich Superscreen – one of the largest screens in Europe - is powered by a Christie RGB laser projection system.
“It’s thrilling to us that exhibitors are investing in RealLaser in cinemas to suit a variety of audiences, and it reaffirms our decision to focus on RGB laser technology,” says Phil Lord, cinema sales manager, Christie. “We firmly believe that this technology will allow cinemas to draw audiences in by offering customers an authentic and immersive experience, both now and in the future, with amazing visual performance for years to come, and a low total cost of ownership.”
Cineworld Group has signed an agreement to acquire more than 1,000 of Christie’s RGB pure laser cinema projectors featuring Christie RealLaser illumination technology.
