CDXL Superior Performance Lamps

Lenticular envelope shape promotes more light towards the reflector surface increasing efficiency

“High Tech” anode and cathode design increasing heat rejection and durability

“High Tech” seals for withstanding higher temperatures and pressures

Higher xenon (Xe) pressure yielding more intense light Shorter arc gap making a tighter point source of light (ideal for Digital Cinema)

Christie Integrated Media Block

What is an IMB? • •

IMB is short for Image or Integrated Media Block An IMB is a media block which is capable of JPEG2000 encoding for digital cinema DCP playback. • It is essentially the video card of a traditional 2K cinema server, integrated into a Series-2 Cinema Projector. • The IMB is fed ‘encrypted essence data’ which is just digital data fed from raw storage – essentially files stored on a PC. This data is not in the form of video at this point. • All IMBs for use in Series-2 projectors, must conform to T.I. specifications, as well as DCI compliance. T.I. specs the interface type, power, mechanical and communication protocols to be used inside a Series-2 cinema projector

Why Use an IMB? • • •

More bandwidth to display full color 3D at 24 fps/eye (3D at 4:4:4 12-bit color processing) When upgraded, full support for 48/60 fps/eye 3D and 4K content Very secure system design - All the video decryptors and encoders are on board the IMB under a SPB1. The IMB itself is also contained within the projector SBP2. For this reason, no CineLink encryption is required.



Why Use Christie IMB? •

• •

Provides a more reliable projection system since the IMB was designed with a deep understanding of the projector’s software, thermals, vibrations and internal power availability The Christie IMB is easily upgradable to provide HFR and 4K support Uses commodity storage devices, thereby reducing cost, reducing downtime due to maintenance, and providing more flexibility in the overall system design Provides streaming MPEG2/H.264 support for advertising and alternative content from the attached commodity storage device

Why Use Christie IMB? •

• • •

Has an intuitive Screen Management System (SMS) for managing content at the screen level; it integrates seamlessly with Christie AviasTMS™ for theater-level content management Integrated software architecture ensures safe and fully-tested software upgrades Designed with multiple failover options for increased reliability and performance A single projection system backed by a single, dedicated, technical support team
