MUMBAI: Christie has become the first digital cinema projector manufacturer to pass the full range of tests required by the Compliance Test Plan (CTP) for the DCI Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS), including all procedural and design review aspects.
The tests were completed by CineCert, LLC, a technology development and consulting firm that is the only organization in North America licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to administer the CTP.
“We are very pleased to confirm that the Christie CP2220, featuring Texas Instruments’ Series 2 DLP Cinema technology, has passed all the requirements of the CTP. We are dedicated to helping the exhibition community understand all of the technical requirements for passing the CTP and helping manufacturers get through the testing process quickly and efficiently,” said CineCert CTO John Hurst.
Hollywood studios require exhibitors worldwide to install DCI compliant projectors in their theaters; and passing the CTP is the only approved path to DCI compliance. Christie’s latest generation projector, the Christie CP2220 – from the Christie Solaria Series of 4K-ready projectors – was tested by CineCert, and their tests confirmed that the projector meets the highest level of technical performance, interoperability, and rigorous content security requirements as specified by DCI’s Compliance Test Plan.
“With more than 80 years in the industry, Christie has earned the trust of the exhibition community by consistently providing products of the highest quality and reliability. This new digital cinema landmark – meeting the strictest requirements for DCI compliance – is further proof of Christie’s commitment to the market,” said Christie vice president of entertainment solutions Craig Sholder.
