CGR Cinemas of France, a nationwide chain, is upgrading projection in selected outlets with the Solaria CP42LH RGB laser projector from Christie. Installed and supported by Cine Digital Service, the projectors will be part of CGR’s new Premium Room concept, which is to be unveiled at selected cinemas across France from December.
CGR is the first cinema chain in EMEA to deploy Christie CP42LH and laser modules that generate white light from multiple combinations of RGB primary colour wavelengths to counteract speckle and are intended to offer a spectacular viewing experience on silver screens. “We were impressed by the stunning clarity of images and amazing brightness of the Christie system. It’s a 57,200-lumen laser projector which gives incredible brightness and the technology using 9 primary colours gives beautiful image quality. We will be using a new format, which manages and increases both light and contrast and we knew this projector head was perfect to give our Premium Concept the difference we were looking for in order to bring the best in 2D or in 3D, without compromise”, said Sébastien Bruel, Technical Director CGR Cinema.
