Christie’s cinema projector line-up has just received a new addition, with the company announcing the CP2208-LP laser phosphor digital cinema projector at CinemaCon 2016.

Boasting a laser phosphor light source and a DCI-compliant projection system, Christie says that its latest cinema projector has all the features that theatre owners demand – such as low total cost of operation and easy maintenance.

The CP2208-LP was first previewed in EMEA at Filmwoche in Munich, where Christie showcased its ability to deliver up to 11,000 native lumens of brightness. It also demonstrated some of the projector’s other features, such as its ability to handle 3D and high frame rate content.

Laser phosphor technology has become the new standard in the projection industry, with manufacturers flocking to support it thanks to its lower carbon footprint and long lifespan. For cinema owners it also means there’s no longer a requirement to constantly replace lamps.

Christie will be offering its CP2208-LP as a complete system with the optional IMB-S2 integrated media block, but it also works with other Series-2 IMBs.

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

Christie says that the CP2208-LP is capable of lighting screens up to 35ft wide in DCI colour. It also supports various alternative content sources through dual HDMI-over-DVI ports, delivering images on the screen that promise to be ‘bright and engaging’.

“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,” adds Allan. “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.”
