Christie today launched a value-priced digital cinema offering, the Christie CP2208, aimed at theaters with screen sizes less than 10.6 meters (35 feet) wide that require an affordable solution in a compact footprint. The latest in a line of Xenon-lamp based Christie Solaria projector solutions, the CP2208 was unveiled today at the Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Exhibition (BIRTV) at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. Shipments of the units, to be available worldwide, are scheduled to begin in October. The system is 2K resolution.
The CP2208 can be ordered with a variety of lamp sizes and lenses, and gives customers the choice of adding an integrated media block — either the Christie IMB-S2 with its tightly-integrated Screen Management System (SMS) and high-performance storage — or other, popular Series-2 IMB system.While able to support various alternative content sources through dual HDMI ports via DVI connectors, the solution is DCI-compliant, based on Texas Instruments’ 3-chip, 0.69″ S2K DLP Cinema chipset. The CP2208 will deliver fully DCI-compliant images at 9,000 lumens within the DCI color space and up to 10,000 lumens when presenting alternative content.Here are the specs.
