The new kit includes up to 10 Christie Roadster units with SXGA+ resolution and up to 16K lumens brightness, which are currently being installed at Anna Valley's facility in west London.
The installation also includes the world's first Roadster HD12Kc units with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, 10-bit dual HDSDI (4:4:4) processing and enhanced colourimetry. Anna Valley chief executive Phil White described the HD 12Kc as 'the benchmark for HD projection'.
The HD systems are the latest addition to the company's comprehensive hire fleet, which also includes 6mm LED and plasma displays.
Anna Valley's spokesman, Doug Hammond, said that the BBC, which has used the company's HD displays for projects including Live 8 and US election coverage, is 'leading the race on HD screenings'. He told Broadcast: 'The BBC may not be broadcasting everything in HD, but it's selling the content overseas. It's also taking HD projection around to show staff proper blown-up HD.'
Anna Valley, part of the Shooting Partners facilities group since 2001, has also supplied on-set displays for primetime shows including ITV1's The X Factor, Record of the Yearand All Star Family Fortunesand BBC1's Top of the Pops: The Final Countdown.
Christie Digital chief executive Gavin Chatfield said that the deal has helped consolidate Christie's presence in the HD displays sector. Doug Hammond said that he hoped the partnership would continue.
Berkshire-based Christie was founded 75 years ago and has led the development of projection technology for 30 years. Its products have received two Academy Awards for technical excellence, and are used in 50 countries by broadcast companies, movie studios and other organisations.
