Barco wins exclusive order for ten Digital Cinema projectors in China

In the latest development of its pioneering digital cinema network, the China Film Bureau, in cooperation with the China Film Group (CFG), have exclusively selected the Barco D-Cine Premiere DP100 2k digital projector for installation in a further ten of China’s premiere theaters.

The order is the fourth awarded to the company in the last two years, and the first to be granted solely to Barco. It raises the number of Barco Digital Cinema projectors provided for the CFG Digital Cinema network program to a total of forty now installed in over twenty cities.

In recognition of the benefits of the DP100’s excellent performance and reliability, plus the high level of support provided by Barco for its first ten DP100 projectors (delivered January 2004) the CFG has again chosen the advanced Barco Digital Cinema solution, this time for both new and upgrade installations in the key cities of Shanghai, Guanzhou, Beijing and Shenzhen.

Installed to meet a deadline of November 20th for the national digital release of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘I Robot’ the digital projectors are provided with anamorphic lenses for the maximum large screen display resolution; but also with ACSAR2, Barco’s Alternative Content Input Processor to allow for the theatrical display of HDTV broadcast content planned in the near future.

Though the Barco DP100 has quickly established itself as the large screen digital cinema display reference in China, another key factor in the decision to place this latest order solely with Barco was also the high level of local support provided by the company through its five regional offices.

As Mr. Cheng Yang, General Manager of CFG Digital Cinema Ltd. commented “A high level of support is a critical consideration of all of our suppliers and so we have particularly appreciated the level of support provided by Barco over the past two years. Their commitment to ongoing installation, operator and maintenance training, plus the immediate support provided through its many regional offices has made us very confident in our decision to award this order exclusively to Barco.”

A view reflected by Mr. Chen Xuxiang, Senior Business Development Manager, Barco China Digital Cinema, who confidently added that “the decision of the China Film Group to choose Barco as its sole supplier for this order has again proved the superior quality and absolute product integrity that Barco is renown for.”
