Also heavily involved in the pre-production process was Christie Senior Product Manager Jim Dukes.
"Oslo Kinowas fully aware of the benefits brought by Christie Duo," he said. "Having been through our demo at CinemaCon 2012 they had become very excited about the possibilities for the Colosseum. "Duo has improved their 3D performance and doubled the brightness on this grand historic cinema's magnificent screen." The scale of the screen, coupled with its significant 5° curve, is what the Christie Duo was designed for, observes Dukes. "This would present a challenge for most dual projection systems when it comes to image convergence. Due to space availability, and the need for accuracy, we chose the Single Mirror Duo configuration for the best results," he said. "This reduces the lens spacing to a very close 7in, which produced a remarkably tight convergence across this massive screen." Due to the excessive brightness available from Christie Duo, Oslo Kino will run its 3D features using both projectors and back off to a single projector for 2D presentations. The Duo principle initially involved aligning the two projectors manually as closely as possible. "This allowed any convergence errors to be returned to perfection quickly and easily," Jim Dukes explained. In summary, Jim Dukes said, "Colosseum was a pleasure to install Duo in because it is such a well designed and planned out cinema.
