Christie Shines With New Superior Performance Xenolite Lamp Series
Christie has unveiled a set of four new Superior Performance Xenolite lamps for its Series 2 Solaria projectors, ranging from 2kW to 6kW, at CineEurope 2012.
The new Christie Superior Performance Xenolite lamps, which will be initially available to exhibitors in the EMEA region, are specifically designed for the Christie Solaria CP2220, CP2230, and the Christie 4K DLP Cinema projectors. Setting new levels of performance for digital cinema technology, the Superior Performance lamps deliver the lowest cost of operation, provide flexibility in brightness and impressive power levels for a variety of screen sizes. Christie Superior Performance Xenolite lamps leverage the latest in Xenon lamp technology to provide increased brightness, improved stability and a longer life span.
Lasting up to 30% longer than existing Xenon lamps, the new Superior Performance Xenolite lamp series still offers an extraordinary 99.999% in-theatre uptime reliability, while maintaining brightness for longer periods than current Xenon-lamps, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
With warranties of up to 3,200 hours, exhibitors can now increase their theatre’s overall profitability by postponing lamp replacements, benefitting from reduced lamp costs and fewer maintenance interruptions.
The new Christie Superior Performance Xenolite lamp series consists of a set of four new lamps: The CDXL-20SP(2kW) and CDXL-30SP (3kW) have an estimated average expected life of 3,500 hours and 2,000 hours and are designed for the Christie CP2220, CP2230, CP4220 and CP4230, with a maximum lumen output from 9,000 to 19,000 lumens. The CDXL-45SP (4.5kW) and CDXL-60SP (6kW) are expected to last for 1,500 hours and 1,100 hours respectively, and are designed to achieve light outputs of 24,000 to 34,000 lumens.
The new Superior Performance Xenolite lamps require the same power to run, so exhibitors get more brightness for a longer period of time, while saving on energy costs and thus reducing their cost of operation.
Jason Burden, cinema lamps and accessories sales specialist, Christie EMEA confirms: "Cinema exhibitors are looking at using their lamps for a longer period of time and obtaining outstanding results, while providing the lowest operating costs at the same time. With years of experience in Xenon lamps, and an R&D department constantly focused to develop better and more efficient lamps, Christie is now able to offer to cinema exhibitors the best performance for their projectors."
Christie Xenolite lamps deliver true representation of colour in any cinema environment and are truly a remarkable light source. They offer stable colour temperature, a wide range of power levels, excellent colour rendition and a long-lasting performance consistency, with excellent resistance to flicker, ignition difficulty and explosion. All Christie Xenolite lamps are covered under the Christie Xenolite Lamp Champion Warranty.
The new Christie Superior Performance Xenolite lamps will be available from August 2012, initially to EMEA exhibitors only.
