Christie first to DCI compliance

AUTHOR: Inavate

Christie is 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), according to an announcement from the company.

The tests were completed by CineCert, LLC, a technology development and consulting firm that is the only organisation in North America licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to administer the CTP.

“We are very pleased to confirm that the Christie CP2220 has passed all the requirements of the CTP,” said John Hurst, CTO of CineCert. “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.”

Hollywood studios require exhibitors worldwide to install DCI compliant projectors in their theatres; 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.
