Christie Counteract Covid-19 in cinemas with far-UVC light

Cinema projector maker has announced another innovation to help theatre owners get their businesses back on track while ensuring audiences remain safe; a line of commercial UV disinfection products with patented far-UVC light technology.

CounterAct, which is due to go into production in January 2021, uses Care222 excimer lamps from Christie’s parent company Ushio that emit far-UVC 222nm light. They say the lamps “continuously and significantly reduce pathogens, like coronaviruses, that may also be used while people are present, when used in accordance with specified parameters”.
