Christie Digital Systems to Integrate QUALCOMM Decoding Device Into Cinema Projector

Christie's DLP SLH-D gets added security with decoding and encryption (November 07, 2001)
Christie Digital Systems, a leading manufacturer of Digital Cinema projectors, announced the integration of the QUALCOMM Incorporated QDEC 1000 decoder into Christie's DLP Cinema projector, SLH-D. The integration process enables Christie to become among the first to physically integrate a Digital Cinema decoding device within a projector for use in Digital Cinema presentations. The integration of the QDEC 1000 decoder into Christie Digital Cinema-quality ensures enhanced security through the simultaneous electronic decoding and decryption. In addition, the QDEC 1000 decoder offers image and audio stream synchronization and formatting necessary for a Digital Cinema theatre system processor.

"Through the integration of QUALCOMM's decoder into our DLP Cinema projector, Christie will deliver unprecedented image presentation with superior security," said Michael Mooney, director of Digital Cinema at Christie Digital Systems of Cypress, CA. "The secure architecture of QUALCOMM's QDEC 1000 decoder module answers many concerns in Hollywood over the security of Digital Cinema content."

Christie's SLH-D Digital Cinema projector can be configured with various lamphouse solutions that provide the necessary 12.5 Ft.L. on screens up to 60-ft. wide, a contrast ratio of over 1000:1 and complete compatibility with 720-line and 1080 HDTV standards.

"Christie provides an excellent example of how quickly and easily the QDEC 1000 decoder can be integrated into Digital Cinema projectors to deliver unprecedented security and performance," said Jon Korecki, senior director of Business Development for QUALCOMM Digital Media.

With QUALCOMM's QDEC 1000 decoder integrated into Christie's cinema-quality projectors, images are decoded and decrypted via a single chip within the Digital Cinema projector, providing enhanced security and theft protection. The decoder module implements QUALCOMM's ABSolute image compression technology, a high-resolution technology developed for the demanding requirements of Digital Cinema and other applications. The QDEC 1000 decoder is capable of outputting image resolutions of up to 2560 x 1080 pixels, which is commensurate with requirements for high-quality Digital Cinema images, at full 10-bit 4:4:4 color component sampling.
