MUNICH, Germany – Christie® is pleased to announce it has signed a multi-year agreement to supply its RGB pure laser projectors to Cineplex Germany. Work is underway to install RGB pure laser projectors as part of the agreement, which will operate until 2026. The RGB pure laser projectors will replace long-serving Christie Xenon-illuminated Series 1 and Series 2 projectors. Cineplex Germany operates more than 90 theatres – with over 560 screens – and is the largest cinema operator in the country, encompassing 26 family-owned cinema operations.
"We are pleased to continue the good partnership, which was established in the analogue era and consolidated in the digital age of film projection. And now in the laser era, we continue within the framework of long-term cooperation," says Kim Ludolf Koch, general manager, Cineplex Germany. "Christie has proven to be a fair partner for the heterogeneous needs of the 26 Cineplex family businesses. We are pleased to be able to present our customers with the perfect image of the high-quality, economical and powerful projectors from Christie."
Christie's RGB pure laser cinema projectors with Real|Laser™ illumination technology output more lumens per watt than the competition, with long-lasting light sources for more than 50,000 hours of DCI-specified on-screen brightness and the highest operational efficiency in the market. With the most expansive colour gamut of any projection technology – delivering greater than 95% of the Rec.2020 colour space – and superior contrast ratio, visuals are more vibrant than ever. Christie RGB pure laser projectors feature a proprietary all-in-one design with integrated cooling and sealed optical path.
