Christie said that Hoyts has purchased several units of the newly introduced CP4325-RGB pure laser cinema projector for mainstream auditoriums and post-production facilities in Australia and New Zealand.
The acquired units will be installed at Hoyts’ upcoming flagship “all RGB laser” cinema complex located in Docklands, Melbourne, as well as in Auckland-based post-production house Department of Post. The installations will be carried out by Hoyts Cinema Technology Group (CTG).
Adam Wrightson, General Manager, Hoyts Cinema Technology Group (CTG) said.
“Christie RGB pure laser projectors are the future of cinema projection and the gold standard for that technology. We’re very confident that the CP4325-RGB will deliver rich and vibrant visuals in mainstream auditoriums, as well as for filmmakers and post-production facilities.”
Besides the new CP4325-RGB projectors, Hoyts’ Docklands site will also install the Christie CP42LH fibre-coupled RGB pure laser projection systems in two XtremeScreen premium format auditoriums equipped with screens of over 20 metres wide. Each CP42LH unit will be upgraded to 60,000 lumens.
For over two decades, Christie and Hoyts CTG have collaborated on numerous projects across Australia and New Zealand. These include independent exhibitors such as Palace Cinemas, as well as post-production house Definition Films, which has a CP42LH deployed at its facility in Sydney.
