Christie and FTT enter into an agreement for 300 Christie Solaria Series projectors
Posted on Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Mönchengladbach (Germany), 27th January 2010 – Christie®, a global leader in visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, is proud to announce the successful conclusion of a framework purchasing agreement for 300 Christie Solaria series projectors with FTT, its German integration and service partner headquartered in Düsseldorf. This is the first order in Europe for Christie’s new Solaria Series products.

The Christie Solaria series consists of three new 2K DLP Cinema® models upgradable to 4K and two 4K models. They feature different brightness and resolution levels offering the ideal solution for different cinema sizes and needs. Hence the reason the contract only stipulates the overall number of projectors but does not specify the models in order to allow a flexible adaptation to the specifics of each environment.

"Our customers had the best experiences with Christie projectors and we ourselves, a long term partner, are pleased with the quality and technical support Christie offers," says Thomas Rüttgers, Managing Director of Film Ton Technik Hannsdieter Rüttgers GmbH (FTT). "Since many customers went for Christie products, entering into this agreement was simply a logical step for us."

The cooperation with Christie dates back to 2004, when the first small D-Cinema rollout started. Since then, FTT installed numerous 2K DLP Cinema projectors of Christie's CP Series in many different cinema environments as well as in studios or post production facilities. "We are convinced that the new Solaria models will meet the high expectations on quality and will continue the success that the CP2000 Series already has," Rüttgers says.

Stefan Müller, Business Development Manager Cinema for Christie EMEA, welcomed the continuation of this intense cooperation with FTT: "We are, of course, very happy that FTT is showing such confidence and counting on us for the next conversion phase. We, too, look forward to a good partnership since we are both working towards a joint goal which is to offer exhibitors a long-term, reliable cinema technology at the highest standard and with the best service and support."

These 300 Christie projectors are primarily going to be installed in German cinemas of various operators but also in other countries in Central and Eastern Europe where FTT operates. They will be used in ongoing projects like the digitalisation that already started in 2009, but also in new upcoming projects. All Solaria Series projectors are planned to be in use by mid 2011, a third of them for 3D screenings.
