RGB pure laser debuts at Cannes 2021

RGB pure laser debuts at Cannes Film Festival's 74th year

July 6, 2021 - Christie® is once again delighted to be the projection technology partner for the Cannes Film Festival. For the 2021 festival, which runs July 6–17, Christie's RGB pure laser projectors will brighten up the screens for the first time. It will be the first in-person edition of the Cannes Film Festival since 2019, and Christie will provide installation and show support for the occasion, as it celebrates its 15th year as technical partner.  

"It is a great privilege to play a role at the Cannes Film Festival," says Adil Zerouali, senior sales director Cinema EMEA, Christie. "As with many festivals and events around the globe, there have been a great number of logistical challenges to overcome this past year-and-a half. Nonetheless we are excited to celebrate cinema in-person at Cannes once again, and we think audiences will be very impressed with the colours, clarity and performance of our RGB pure laser projectors – the first time pure laser is used at the Cannes Festival. RGB lasers will allow the impressive line-up of films to deliver the impact they should."

Christie supplied an array of RGB pure laser projectors and Xenon illuminated projectors to cater to the dedicated rooms and screen sizes throughout the festival. The RGB laser projectors include the Christie® CP4440-RGB, CP4330-RGB, CP2315-RGB models – all of which are DCI-compliant projectors featuring Christie Real|Laser™ illumination and CineLife™ electronics.

Technical specification for the projection technology throughout the festival is overseen by the CST (Commission Supérieure Technique de l'Image et du Son). "I have been working with them since earlier on in the year, to ensure that we can provide everything to support its needs," adds Francis Zee, technical consultant, at Christie. "They are a skilled team and look after final alignment and testing of all screens. They will provide front-line support, with the Christie team remaining onsite throughout the two weeks of the Festival for expert advice."

The ongoing partnership with the Cannes Festival confirms Christie's reputation in the cinema industry as a provider of market leading digital cinema solutions, and its ongoing commitment to offer the best image quality for one of cinema's most prestigious events.
