Professional Digital Film Projectors for Movie Theatres
At a glance:

Christie came to Design 1st for an Industrial design refresh and guidance on large injection molded part design for two flagship $50,000+ per unit projector product lines. Working with the electronics and engineering team at Christie, the outcome was updated corporate branding for the products. One for mobile deployment, one for movie theaters.

Product branding - exploring competitor differentiation and developing the new Christie product brand elements library
Design 1st was a valuable asset, given the depth of their design and engineering experiences as well as their core competencies in areas such as injection plastics, thermal analysis, tooling strategies and manufacturing.
