"North By Northwest" Screening in 4K Scheduled

As a special treat for SMPTE attendees, this evening there will be a screening of a restored version of the Hitchcock classic “North By Northwest” starring Cary Grant, in 4K at the Mann Chinese Theater.

The movie—which was restored with a process that included scanning at 8K—will be projected using a prototype of Christie’s Solaria series 4K DLP Cinema projector.
Christie is pleased to contribute to an enjoyable evening for attendees. “This is the first time 4K DLP Cinema technology is being used to show an audience a full 4K feature film,” said Brian Claypool, senior product manager, entertainment solutions for Christie.
The new Christie CP4230 features the new 4K DLP Cinema chip from Texas Instruments and is designed to be compliant with the DCI specification. Pricing for Christie 4K digital cinema projectors is anticipated to be 35% above 2K projector pricing.
For tonight’s screening, early arrival is recommended as seating is limited.
