MUMBAI: Christie has installed more than 3,000 Digital Cinema systems worldwide, the first manufacturer to reach this important milestone, claims the company.
The company also claims that nearly 80 per cent of all installations around the world use Christie DLP Cinema projectors, making the projector a world standard. With Christie on target to surpass 4,000 installations by the end of the year, the company’s success has exceeded all earlier industry expectations for the entire global market for Digital Cinema, it says.
More than 2600 systems are installed throughout the US as part of the AccessIT software and funding vehicle introduced in 2005. Christie installations also span Africa, Asia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
Christie’s manufacturing facilities have boosted capacity by over 400 per cent in the past year, delivering more than 400 DLP Cinema units per month, says the company.
