Located in Hualien, Vieshow Cinemas Hualien Paradiso has become the first cinema complex in Taiwan to be fully equipped with an RGB pure laser projection systems. Five auditoriums are powered by Christie’s RGB pure laser projection systems comprising the 4K-resolution CP4325-RGB and 2K-resolution CP2315-RGB models.

The cinema complex has been designed and built by Taiwan Innovation and Development Corporation (TIDC), and is operated by Vieshow Cinemas. The installation and maintenance of the projection systems were undertaken by Christie’s Taiwanese partner, Dacoms Technology.

The four CP2315-RGB units are fitted in Halls A to D, with a combined capacity of over 380 seats, while the CP4325-RGB will be deployed in the larger S auditorium, boasting a 16m wide screen and a capacity of 448 seats.

Fu-sheng Chiu, president of TIDC, said: “Vieshow Cinemas Hualien Paradiso marks our inaugural entry into the film exhibition business, and we’ve chosen Christie RealLaser cinema projectors due to their long-lasting, high performance light source and compact form factor. They are also future-proofed with High Frame Rate capabilities, with an upgrade path for 4K 120fps playback. I’m confident that our audiences will enjoy a spectacular movie-viewing experience with the Christie cinema projectors that we have invested in.”

Emily Hong, president of Dacoms Technology, noted: “Christie’s RealLaser cinema projectors represents the epitome of mainstream projection technology. The decision by TIDC to equip its first cinema complex in Hualien with Christie RealLaser is a clear testimony of the projectors’ high performance, reliability and ease of maintenance. Vieshow Cinemas Hualien Paradiso now joins a steadily growing number of exhibitors in Taiwan that have embraced Christie RealLaser; a high point in laser-illuminated projection.”
