Siggraph 2014 Platinum Sponsor Christie Powers Up Screens and Award-Winning Visual Displays

Christie Projectors to be Used at Vancouver's 41st International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Technologies, SIGGRAPH

Christie®, the global leader in visual displays and audio technologies, will be powering the screens that are showing some of the visuals effects of several of the year's biggest blockbuster films and advances in computer graphics at Vancouver's 41st International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, SIGGRAPH 2014, August 10 - 14. Christie will also lead a discussion on the latest projection mapping techniques at the NVIDIA Visual Computing Theater. Titled, "Virtual Automotive: Projection Mapped Graphics for Automotive Design," Christie will display its latest digital "sandbox," a fully three dimensional visual pipeline designed to automatically calibrate and maintain a customized projection mapped display, such a Corvette or other template model of any size.


"Christie CP4230 Digital Cinema® projectors are essentially powering the amazing Computer Animation Festival (CAF), enabling the leading VFX and film studios to exhibit their best work in two large presentation halls, including AMPAS' award-winning content in film and animation," said Jeevan Vivegananthan, senior director of engineering, Christie. "The CP4230 projectors will also showcase cutting-edge, real-time interactive technologies and techniques in the CAF's Production Sessions as well as three sold-out evening shows of the incredibly popular Electronic Theater which features the finest work in computer graphics from the past year. And our 4K projectors will display a special screening of DreamWorks Animation's 'How to Train Your Dragon 2'."
The auditoriums for the CAF and the Production Sessions will each feature two auxiliary screens, flanking the main screen, which will show close-ups of event speakers to the audience. These will be powered by Christie Roadster HD20K-J and Christie Roadster HD14K-M projectors, respectively.

Christie will also illuminate the SIGGRAPH Studio and SIGGRAPH Art Gallery, each of which will feature two Christie G Series projectors and the Art Gallery, which will include a 65-inch Christie FHD651-T LCD touch panel display.
