Epic Theatres Selects Barco for 69 Screens Including Exclusive "Epic XL" Premium Cinema Experience

Barco, world record holder for the brightest DC projector, has been selected by Epic Theatres of DeLand, Fla. to convert 69 screens to digital projection with its industry-leading DLP Cinema® projectors. Included in this deployment is the installation of two DP4K-32B models for two “Epic XL” large-format premium cinema screens in its new Deltona, Florida location.

The latest deployment follows on the heels of successful installations of Barco's DP2K and DP4K digital cinema projectors in Florida and North Carolina. The company's brand new theater, which opened December 20 in Deltona, Florida, now boasts the area's only cinema with two 69-ft, large-format “Epic XL” auditoriums featuring RealD XLW 3D. Barco installed 12 screens at this location, including six 3D auditoriums, bringing the total to 69 Barco projectors deployed throughout the circuit. 

“It was an easy decision to continue using Barco, as their team has always been responsive to our needs and has been an excellent partner to us throughout our digital deployment,” commented Clint DeMarsh, VP for Epic Theatres. “Additionally, Barco is the only supplier that could provide the light levels and image quality we needed on our Epic XL screens and the resulting cinema experience is truly world class.” 

“Epic continues to elevate the cinema experience for their patrons with the latest innovations and careful attention to detail,” commented Terri Westhafer, Director of Business Development for Barco Digital Cinema North America. “It's exciting to experience full digital projection conversion with this important and long-standing customer. They have been on board with Barco since the beginning of changing from film to digital, and we appreciate their loyalty and vision as they have equipped their state-of-the-art Deltona theatre with 4K equipment. It has always been my pleasure to work with the DeMarsh family and we look forward to continuing our partnership in the coming years.”
