They offer different levels of luminosity and resolution, so they are the ideal solution for three new models 2K DLP Cinema upgradable to 4K, and two other models. cinemas of different sizes and needs. Hence the reason that the contract only sets the total number of projectors, but does not specify the models in order to allow a flexible adaptation to the particularities of each environment. The collaboration with Christie dates back to 2004, when the first small-scale digital cinema deployment began. Since then, FTT has installed numerous 2K DLP Cinema projectors from Christie's CP series in many different film environments, as well as in studios or post-production facilities. The director-general of Film Ton Technik Hannsdieter (FTT) has been convinced that "the new Solaria models will meet the high expectations of quality, and will continue the success that the CP2000 series already has". For his part, Stefan Muller, Business Development Manager Cinema of Christie EMEA, has emphasized that both his company and FTT are "working towards a common goal that is to offer exhibitors reliable cinema technology in the long term, at the highest level and with the best service and support." These 300 Christie projectors will be installed mainly in German cinemas of various operators, but also in other countries of Central and Eastern Europe where FTT operates. They will be used in various ongoing projects, such as digitization initiated in 2009, and also in new projects. All Solaria series projectors are expected to be in use by mid-2011, a third of them for 3D projections.
