Disney has entered into a pact with Christie to supply digital cinema technology and professional services for Disney’s production, post-production, screening rooms and premieres.
A combination of 2K and 4K Christie Solaria projectors will be delivered to Disney in 2013, starting at the studio’s headquarters in Burbank.
Christie’s Managed Services department in North America will provide Disney’s accomplished engineering team with round-the-clock support for Disney’s digital cinema facilities, supported by Christie’s Network Operations Center (NOC), also located in North America, and Christie’s on-site preventative maintenance services.
“Disney continues to push the limits of technology and innovation, and we at Christie are honoured that we have this long-term opportunity to bring our considerable technology and service resources to bear to support Disney’s movie business,” said Jack Kline, president and CEO, Christie Digital Systems USA Inc.
“Our agreement with Christie assures us of leading-edge projection technology and services for our Motion Pictures and our Studio Lot,” said Jeff Miller, President, Studio Operations, The Walt Disney Studios. “We’re also looking forward to working with Christie to refine and improve projection technologies.”
