Pixar to Use Christie Digital Projector for Monsters Screening

By DMN Staff Writer
Christie Digital Systems, one of three DLP Cinema marketers, sold a DigiPro digital cinema projector and lamphouse with pedestal system to Pixar Animation Studios of Emeryville, California.

DigiPro is being used in Pixar's main theater to review the D-Cinema master of Monsters, Inc., the November 2, 2001 animated film release from Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios. DigiPro will also display a host of other sources (including serial digital video, analog component video, and RGB) for presentations and creative reviews.

"We are extremely excited to master and present our films digitally, using the DigiPro," remarks Bill Kinder, Senior Manager of Editorial and Post Production at Pixar Animation Studios. "It will allow us greater control in creating the Digital Cinema master which, in turn, brings us closer to the goal of showing audiences our films in their truest form."

Disney/Pixar's 1999 release, Toy Story 2, was the first film in motion picture history to be entirely created, mastered and exhibited digitally.

Housed in Pixar's 250-seat main theatre, DigiPro projects onto a 16-foot high by 39-foot wide Stewart Ultramatte screen with a screen-to-projector throw distance of 71 feet. DigiPro features 13000 ANSI lumens, a contrast ratio of over 1000:1 and complete compatibility with 720-line and 1080-line HDTV standards.
