Christie celebrates 90th anniversary with new leadership


Christie is celebrating its ninth decade in business with new leadership at the helm. President and COO Zoran Veselic has taken the reigns from longtime CEO Jack Kline, explaining that the company intends to focus on expanding its line-up of laser projectors, expanding LED technology and leveraging the convergence of AV over IP. 

‘The market changes quickly and as we move into Christie’s next decade the pace will only increase,’ stated Veselic. ‘Christie employees have the talent and drive to keep us competitive and continue to lead the market with new innovations.’

The manufacturer recently introduced technology including MicroTiles LED and the Christie D4K40-RGB projector, of which 252 will be installed in the Al Wasl Plaza Dome for Expo 2020 Dubai. Christie has also announced recent partnerships with Expo 2020 as the Official Projection and Display Partner and China’s Huaxia Film to develop a projection system for advanced format movies. ‘It’s exciting to see homegrown technology being used globally,’ said Veselic. ‘And the response to our newest technology from our customers and partners has been extremely positive.’

Much of the company’s subsequent success can still be attributed back to its acquisition in 1999 of Kitchener’s Electrohome Projection Systems, which established Christie in the digital projection market and gave it a home in Kitchener, Ontario. ‘Christie’s advanced manufacturing capabilities in Kitchener are world class,’ furthered Veselic. ‘Our team of technicians are assembling laser optical systems, which involve aligning the numerous, small mirrors needed to bounce and shape laser light into a single strand of fibre optic cable using a robot-driven process. We’re able to increase production volumes for our laser optical systems, and as a result, we can meet the strong market demand for our laser projectors.’
